Global - Analysis - Industry - Structural Changes for Convergence

Synopsis

Archived report. This report was archived in 2006 and has not been updated. In order for the industry to position themselves for the opportunities in converging markets, serious structural changes need to be made to align the current businesses towards the challenges of media and IT convergence. Furthermore, there are the cannibalisation effects of VoIP and, on top that, the access models are changing, with triple-play emerging as the model forward. The industry will have to align itself along one of the three key structures: infrastructure, content and appliances.
