54 Million Wi-Fi Enabled HDTVs will Ship in 2013

Many consumer electronic (CE) products now include Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) connectivity using the available Wi-Fi standards 802.11b/g, 802.11n, and the soon-to-be available 802.11ac.

Most of these CE products can be categorized as portable or mobile. More recently, products typically cast as stationary -- such as TVs, DVD/Blu-ray players, and digital photo frames -- can now wirelessly connect to the Internet or a home network, providing access to digital media content.

Even though the WLAN attach rates of these stationary devices remain relatively low in comparison to their portable counterparts, the size of the combined WLAN-enabled CE markets will surpass 419 million units shipped by 2015, according to the latest market study by In-Stat.

"WLAN connectivity in portable CE devices is not a novel idea and, in fact, an absolute requirement in most cases," says Frank Dickson, Vice President of Research at In-Stat.

The global embedded base of web-enabled and smart CE devices is expected to grow substantially over the next five years, providing the connectivity necessary to support IP-based video content. Smart CE devices actually go one step further, offering online applications.

In-Stat's latest market study findings include:

- E-readers will reach a 90 percent WLAN attach rate by 2015.

- In 2014, handheld game consoles will have an 802.11n attach rate of 32 percent.

- Over 54 million WLAN-enabled digital TVs will ship in 2013.

- The 802.11ac standard will reach an attach rate in notebooks of 57 percent in 2015.

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. A "digital identity" is a unique representation of a person. It enables individuals to prove their physical identity during transactions. Moreover, a digital identity is a set of validated digital attributes and credentials for online interactions -- similar to a person's identity within the physical world. 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. Digital Identity Systems Market Development Complementary to more traditional forms of identification, digital identity verification systems can enhance the authenticity, security, confidentiality, and efficiency of

Software-Defined Infrastructure: The Platform of Choice

As more organizations adapt to a hybrid working model for their distributed workforce, enterprise CIOs and CTOs are tasked with delivering new productivity-enabling applications, while also seeking ways to effectively reduce IT cost, complexity, and risk. Traditional IT hardware infrastructure is evolving to more software-based solutions. The worldwide software-defined infrastructure (SDI) combined software market reached $12.17 billion during 2020 -- that's an increase of 5 percent over 2019, according to the latest market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). The market grew faster than other core IT technologies. The three technology pillars within the SDI market are: software-defined compute (53 percent of market value), software-defined storage controller (36 percent), and software-defined networking (11 percent). "Software-defined infrastructure solutions have long been popular for companies looking to eliminate cost, complexity, and risk within their data cente

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. According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) will displace over 2.2 billion private car journeys by 2025 -- that's rising from 471 million in 2021. 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
