Top 3 World Regions to Drive Media Tablet Growth

The popularity and anticipated growth in the media tablet sector has upset the portable consumer device world marketplace. That said, the latest market study by In-Stat indicates that tablet demand isn't quite as global as you might think.

The top three world regions -- North America, Asia-Pacific, and Western Europe -- will be responsible for 91 percent of all media tablet unit shipments in 2015.

"There is obviously strong potential for tablets, as there has been with other mobile electronic devices. One key difference, however, is that the commercial market also represents a potential revenue opportunity for tablet OEMs," says Stephanie Ethier, Senior Analyst at In-Stat.

Usage models and user requirements will differ in the commercial market, but as the overall tablet market becomes more defined, the opportunities for tablets within business markets will become more apparent.

In-Stat's latest market research findings include:

- At over 129 billion units, portable media players (PMPs) represented the largest number of portable device units shipped in 2010.

- The e-reader market will remain primarily a North American market, with 58 percent of e-reader units shipped into North America in 2015.

- Personal navigation device (PND) shipments will peak in 2012 and then decline steadily over the remaining forecast period.

- Handheld game console shipments will grow approximately 20 percent over the next year as a result of the Nintendo 3DS launch.

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.

Secure Digital Workspace Apps Enable the Future Enterprise

In early 2020, as the world responded to the COVID-19 pandemic disruption, many organizations were forced to rapidly transform their communications networks and IT infrastructure to support an unprecedented shift to remote work. Before the pandemic, approximately 38 percent of employees were remote full-time or had a flexible work arrangement where they split time between home and office locations. During the pandemic, the percentage of remote workers that CIOs had to support reached almost 72 percent. Future Enterprise Technology Market Development Enterprise leaders have been forced to adapt to a new state, shifting from traditional office-based operations to distributed workforce environments that must still provide the same level of connectivity, security, and efficiency across the organization. According to the latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC), addressing connectivity across geographies and transforming networks to become more virtual and agile
