IEC Annual Review of Communications

According to the latest edition of the Annual Review of Communications, continued growth for service providers will rest on their ability to offer the valued-added services, via the next-generation network, that today's customers want. There is global demand for service packages that include high-speed Internet, high-quality video, and traditional voice � the combination of which is now referred to as the triple-play.

"For service providers like telcos, the 'triple play' represents the ultimate way to increase profits and customer loyalty concurrently," says Wolfgang Schmitz, Senior Executive Vice President of Technology Engineering, T-Com, at Deutsche Telekom AG and a contributor to the Annual Review. "A triple-play service infrastructure opens the door to a whole new class of converged services. These services can be integrated into the traditional service packages to provide value-added services that differentiate the triple play offer from disjointed voice, data, and video services."

Key industry trends and issues such as this are covered in the Annual Review of Communications, Volume 58. Designed for industry professionals and academics at all levels, the Review is intended to keep its readers informed of the most recent industry developments. Detailed technology assessments, case studies, and deployment reports; business strategy reviews; policy recommendations; market forecasts; revenue projections; and trend analyses are all part of the Annual Review.
