Profitable Personalized Video Advertising

The telco television headend equipment market is expected to grow substantially over the next five years, according to the latest study by In-Stat.

This growth, driven by the expansion of video channels, the introduction of high-definition (HD) content, and the continued adoption of on-demand services will position telco operators to pursue highly-profitable personalized advertising and converged services business models, the high-tech market research firm says.

"For operators to generate significant profitability from telco TV and related video services, they must find ways for the network to add value," says Keith Nissen, In-Stat analyst.

This will dictate finding solutions to the challenges faced with personalized advertising, converged video services, and ultimately the integration of network and Web-based applications.

The In-Stat research covers the worldwide market for Telco TV and headend equipment. It tracks the development of the worldwide telco TV market, and examines its evolution to personalized ads, multi-screen, and web-based services.

It also provides updated product and revenue forecasts for headend equipment segments, including broadcast content processing, on-demand, content security, and middleware by region and headend size.

The research discusses the need to migrate telco TV functions from a centralized headend to an architecture where quality of service (QoS)-related functions and storage of selected content are distributed to the edge and access networks.

In-Stat's market study found the following:

- The telco TV headend equipment market will grow to over US$ 700 million by 2012.

- The upgrade to MPEG-4 encoding was strong during 2007 and 2008.

- Increasingly, headend functionality will be distributed to the edge and access network.

Hybrid Work: How to Enhance Employee Productivity

When you hire qualified talent for a key role and trust them to perform, you'll likely achieve the best outcome. Skilled and experienced people will deliver results, regardless of the challenges. That's a key lesson learned from the pandemic experience as most knowledge workers were asked to work from their homes. However, some resist returning to an open-plan office. It's unacceptable. Meanwhile, forward-thinking leaders decided a "return to normal" is undesirable, and in hindsight, everyone should aspire to be more accomodating than before. Therefore, location flexibility is okay. Hybrid Workforce Market Development How will people adapt to these changes? They'll apply the modern IT tools at their disposal. They'll learn new skills and thrive. Nearly 80 percent of employees are now successfully using online collaboration tools for work in 2021 -- that's up from just over half of workers in 2019, according to the latest market study by Gartner.

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.
