Independent Telcos Offer Local Content

Telephony magazine reports that more than half of all independent operating companies (IOCs) are now providing some form of local video content, according to a survey by Viodi, LLC.

Based on response to the survey, previous research and participation in the company�s local content workshops, Ken Pyle, co-founder of Viodi, said 53 percent are offering local content. Of those that aren�t offering it, 66 percent plan to begin providing it within the next 24 months.

Not surprisingly, independents said the number one reason to provide local content was to support their community. Among the survey�s other findings were that IOC�s local content is heavily skewed towards sports with some advertising and government meetings. At the same time, Viodi found telcos providing content ranging from documentaries to cooking shows to local news shows. �High school sports is huge and that�s definitely the number one thing right now,� Pyle said.

Trillion-Dollar Smart Power Grid Transformation

The global energy landscape is undergoing a significant transformation. Renewable energy sources like solar and wind are rapidly gaining ground as we transition towards net-zero emissions. However, this transition hinges on a crucial but often overlooked factor: the modernization and expansion of our aging power grids across the globe. For decades the backbone of our electricity delivery system has been largely static. The influx of variable renewable energy sources like solar and wind presents a new challenge. Smart Power Grid Market Development Integrating these resources effectively requires a Smarter, more Responsive grid that can handle fluctuating power generation and efficiently distribute it across vast distances. This is where a new trillion-dollar energy market growth opportunity emerges. According to a recent worldwide market study by ABI Research, global investments in public grid digitalization and transmission network expansion must exceed $4 trillion by 2030 to meet our
