Global Telecom Services Revenue Rising

Global telecommunications industry services revenue will reach $1.7 trillion by the close of 2008, with continued strong growth in wireless leading the way, according to a market analysis report from Insight Research Corporation.

According to the new industry market study, overall telecommunications services revenues are expected to grow at a compounded rate of nearly 10.3 percent over the next few years, reaching $2.7 trillion by 2013.

Wireless makes the strongest showing across all sectors while wireline follows a distant second.

Nearly all of the growth in both sectors is expected to occur in broadband services, with wireless broadband service revenues expected to grow at a compounded rate of more than 70 percent over the forecast period, while wireline broadband services grow at under 10 percent over the same forecast horizon.

The "2008 Industry Review, an Anthology of Market Facts and Forecasts" states that in the growth environment set off by the rush to meet subscriber demand for broadband services, service providers are trying to create viable business models on the fly in order to deliver new types of IP-based services, including Residential Video Telephony, Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC), File Sharing/Downloading Services, Audio/Video Streaming Services, Location-Based Services, and Presence-Based Services.

The study highlights rapidly growing industry segments such as VoIP, WiFi and WiMax, FMC, IMS, IPTV and streaming media, as well as technological innovations such as grid computing and DWDM and WDM in fiber optics.

The report also looks at changes in telecommunications buying patterns among enterprises that purchase managed services as well as other communications services. The study highlights the use of outsourcing by carriers as a major factor in the return to profitability.

"The telecommunications industry is growing, and broadband networking that will be deployed to facilitate new service offers is leading the way," says Insight president Robert Rosenberg.

Digital Identity Verification Market to Reach $16.7B

As more enterprise organizations embrace the ongoing transition to digital business transformation, CIOs and CTOs are adopting new technologies that enable the secure identification of individuals within their key stakeholder communities.

Individuals can use a 'digital ID' to be verified through an authorized digital channel. Usually issued or regulated by a national ID scheme, a digital identity serves to identify a unique person online or offline.

Global Pandemic Accelerates the Evolution of Transportation

Given the current trends across the globe, organizations that depend upon the continued growth of personal vehicle ownership will need to consider a plan-B scenario. While some companies will be able to adapt, others may find that their traditional business model has been totally disrupted.

Juniper believes that for MaaS to enjoy widespread adoption, subscription or on-the-go packages need to offer a strong combination of transport modes along with feasible infrastructure changes, high potential for data collection and low barriers to MaaS deployments. Mobility-as-a-Service Market Development The concept of MaaS involves the provision of multi-modal end-to-end travel services through a single platform by which users can determine the best route and price according to real-time traffic
