Video-Enabled Home Network Node Growth

According to the latest market study by The Diffusion Group (TDG), the number of global broadband households will near 440 million by 2010 and top 1.2 billion by 2030.

During that same time, the number of broadband-enabled home networks will grow from 150 million in 2010 (34 percent) to more than 1.0 billion in 2030 (83 percent of broadband homes). With that required infrastructure in place, the opportunity for broadband-enabled services, especially online video, will grow dramatically.

TDG's study points to a confluence of network-enabled applications and services that will occur within the next 10 years which will drive the diffusion of home networks and network-enabled media applications.

According to TDG, video delivery over the Internet is a primary part of this future. By 2020, virtually every broadband-enabled home will have a multitude of network-connected video platforms. Though the pace at which this occurs will vary by region, its inevitability is unquestionable.

Key trends from the TDG market study include:

- Consumer electronic vendors will embed Internet support and IP video subsystems into their mainstream platforms -- meaning, even average consumers will be buying new CE platforms with native Internet support.

- Incumbent TV providers will incorporate walled-garden broadband video applications and services into their Pay-TV experience -- meaning, set-top boxes will be required to support broadband connectivity.

- TDG notes that by 2020, more than 1.6 billion households around the world will have access to some form of home video service, with Asia enjoying the most rapid growth. These service additions will in many cases be broadband-based or hybrid in nature.

- Given these factors, TDG expects the number of non-portable network-enabled video nodes within global homes will reach 3.6 billion by 2020 and top five billion by 2030.

Flexible Working: Why Company Culture Matters

The main reasons for the Great Resignation are obsolete leadership, fearful middle managers, and a toxic culture that hinders employee engagement. Perhaps that's why some organizations are still struggling with the consideration and development of a flexible working model.  They're incapable of evolving to a more enlightened approach to work where employees are treated with respect. They're stuck in a bygone era of the 20th-century industrial revolution where 'shareholder value' tops all other values, and where spreadsheets and financial data analysis drives all key decision making. We should not be surprised that 76 percent of human resource (HR) leaders now feel that hybrid work challenges an employee's connection to organizational culture, according to a recent survey by Gartner. A 2022 poll of HR leaders reveals the most challenging aspect of setting their hybrid strategy is adjusting the current organizational culture to support a hybrid workforce. In fact,

Securing Fintech via Mobile User Authentication

The global COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the development and adoption of online digital services, including mobile user authentication services. This led to more Fintech solutions growth at a rapid rate from 2020 to 2022, as companies started to adopt one-touch verification. These services enable CIOs and CTOs to increase the level of security offered to customers who are concerned about online financial transactions. However, there are numerous other industry use cases that require increased security measures to protect sensitive data. According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, mobile network operators will generate $27 billion from the termination of Short Message Service (SMS) related to multi-factor authentication in 2022 -- that's an increase from $25 billion in 2021. Commercial SMS Apps Market Development Juniper analysts predict this 5 percent growth will be driven by increased pressure on digital service providers to offer highly secure user authent
