Digital Home CE Systems Installation Market

U.S. revenues generated through the consumer electronics (CE) custom integration or installation channel are projected to grow 8 to 9 percent from 2007 to 2008 based on research conducted jointly by Parks Associates and EH Publishing.

Total channel revenues will reach $9.8 billion in 2007 and grow to more than $11 billion in 2008, driven by technology advancements allowing for more retrofit projects and by the growth in sales of existing dealers.

"Overall the home building industry has softened this year, but the market served by custom installers remains solid," said Bill Ablondi, Parks Associates' director of home systems research. "Manufacturers see the opportunity for retrofit jobs through powerline and wirelessly-enabled nodes, increasing the number of solutions aimed at this segment of the market in 2007."

Historically, dealers have split their business between new construction (50 percent) and remodeling or retrofit (50 percent). This division of work for dealers is poised to change for two reasons: technology advancements (wireless and powerline) make retrofit projects more feasible to a broader market and there is a high likelihood that new owners of homes will upgrade their entertainment, security and other home systems.

On average 1.5 to 2 million new homes are built annually; six to seven million existing homes change ownership every year.

"The overwhelming majority of installing dealers expect their total revenues to grow next year, but at a median growth rate of about 8 percent -- significantly less than the 14 percent growth rate that dealers reported as the norm for the past three years," said Daryl Delano, EH Publishing's research director.

"Although this growth has slowed some, the opportunities are increasing and will continue to increase substantially as a result of these advancements in technology."

Parks Associates and EH Publishing conduct ongoing research of the home systems integration or installation channels. This includes custom installers or integrators, security dealers, and other firms serving the residential market with entertainment, security and control systems.

Mobility-as-a-Service Creates Disruptive Travel Options

Building on significant advances in big data, analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT), more innovative transit service offerings aim to increase public transport ridership and reduce emissions or congestion within metropolitan areas. By providing these services through smartphone apps, the transit services also significantly increase user convenience, providing information on different human mobility offerings -- including public transport, ridesharing, and autonomous vehicles. Mobility-as-a-Service Market Development According to the latest market study by Juniper Research, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) subscribers will generate $53 billion in revenue for MaaS platform providers by 2027 -- that's rising from $5.3 billion in 2021. Let's start with a basic definition. MaaS is the provision of multi-modal end-to-end travel services through single platforms, by which users can determine an optimal route and price. The study identified a monthly subscription model as key to incr

Robocall Mitigation Solutions to Halt Criminal Threats

If you answer the phone and hear a recorded message instead of a live person, it's likely a robocall. A robocall is a phone call that uses a computerized autodialer to deliver a pre-recorded message. In 2020, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) received 2.8 million consumer complaints about robocalls. Offering solutions to robocalling and associated fraudulent business practices, computerized mitigation platforms are an integral part of the solution. Platforms that are focused on actionable systems to disrupt unsolicited and potentially criminal phone calls help telecom service providers and industry regulators. Issues of whether one-size-fits-all developments are sufficient to be effective across the spectrum need to be addressed, and whether a single telecom network operator working unilaterally with a third-party platform could compromise desired or mandatory industry-wide standards. Robocall Mitigation Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by Jun

Upside for New 5G Network Transport Infrastructure

The global mobile communication sector is in the midst of a significant network infrastructure upgrade to support the introduction of new high-bandwidth and low-latency broadband service offerings.  Telecom service provider data centers have an important role in fifth-generation (5G) network deployments. Providers undergoing their transition to Stand-Alone (SA) 5G must understand the technical demands of telco data centers and the key enablers of those offerings. According to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research, the major prerequisites of 5G and the emerging transport solutions would help operators position themselves to successfully capitalize on the new revenue opportunities from delivering differentiated 5G connectivity services. 5G Transport Network Market Development "The rise of the telco data center has a high degree of confluence with the requirements of SA 5G architectures. SA 5G and its increasing reliance on telco data centers can be attributed to the incr
