Global - Mobile Data - Triple Play


Archived report. This report was archived in 2007 and has not been updated. In trying to stay ahead of developments in the fixed broadband market, the mobile industry is developing its own triple play models, where voice, data and video get bundled. For this the industry is developing 3¼G technologies such as High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA). Furthermore they are also linking fixed and mobile together on IP Multimedia System (IMS) allowing for mobile TV. Mobile is trying to carve out its own unique markets next to wireless broadband. However, wireless broadband currently has the edge, the question being - will it be able to deliver and/or will these two merge into 4G. This report provides an overview and analysis of triple play in the mobile sector, including a look at the emerging technologies that will make triple play possible.

Purchase with Confidence

As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it.

Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
