Global - Forecasting (qualitative) 2006


Archived report. This report was archived in 2006 and has not been updated. The year 2006 was the first year where the more tangible effects of convergence are becoming visible. The operational separation of BT will reverberate throughout the global industry. Triple-play business models, the march forward of the DVR, increased demand for better user experiences in the presentation of these new services, away from PCs towards plasma screens and HDTV. And the convergence of the telecoms and broadcasting infrastructures will produce some major battles in the telco/media space. WiMAX and WPAN are adding their weight to these developments from 2006 onwards.
