Video: Presentation – Joe Hogan, Openet – Enterprise Services 2.0: Telco-Enabled Business Processes

09 06 2009 – Enterprises are rapidly extending their use of the internet and mobile to promote, sell, deliver and support their products and services and manage their customer and supplier relationships. However, companies involved in the ‘digital economy’ still face substantial challenges in doing business effectively and efficiently.

Telcos have a unique mix of assets (user data, voice and messaging, data and connectivity capabilities) that can be re-configured into platform-based services to help reduce the friction in everyday enterprise business processes: Identity, Authentication and Security , Marketing and Advertising , Digital Content Distribution , Offline Logistics, Transactions (billing and payments), Customer Care.

Video: Green Planet Episode 6: E-Waste: Reduce, Re-Use, Recycle

05 06 2009 – The realization that the world’s resources are finite has led to a move towards sustainable manufacturing, and greater emphasis being placed on the reduction of waste.

imageGlobally, between 20 and 50 million tons of electronic waste are created each year. This "e-waste", whether mobile phones, laptops or electronic components, make up 5% of all municipal solid waste worldwide.

Video: Solving The Home Networking Dilemma

04 06 2009 – With a billion devices estimated to be connected to home networks by 2010, the complexity of service assurance and the attention CSPs must pay to it will grow exponentially in the coming years. When things go wrong, subscribers will turn to the operator — whose brand reputation and customer experience are on the line.

This video provides insight into what global CSPs can do now, to monitor, diagnose and automatically repair network errors, before a customer is impacted or a trouble call is made.

Video: Indian Telecoms Commission OKs MVNOs

03 06 2009 – If you want to study how NOT to roll out an effective telecommunications infrastructure in past years, you need look no further than India. In a country that had mastered the old British colonial art of creating unnecessary bureaucracy, rolling out new technology was always going to be a complex and frustrating exercise, reports Tony Poulos.

Yet despite the early issues of limited wireless spectrum (shared by the military), circle licences, competing wireless technologies and anageing fixed-line network, India continues to surprise the rest of the world with its dramatic and continuing subscriber growth and innovative telco business models, sometimes involving total outsourcing of both network and Business Support System (BSS) functions.

var so = new SWFObject(‘http://www.telecomtv.com/embed/player.swf’,’mpl’,’400′,’280′,’9′); so.addParam(‘allowscriptaccess’,’always’); so.addParam(‘allowfullscreen’,’true’); so.addParam(‘wmode’,’transparent’); so.addParam(‘flashvars’,’file=HP_Press_Conf&volume=100&autostart=false&streamer=rtmpt://telecomtv.fcod.llnwd.net/a1411/o16&type=video’); so.write(’embedplayer’);

News from India this week that 11.9 million new subscribers were added to the mobile networks in April would be daunting for most other countries. According to theTelecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), Bharti Airtel is the largest operator with 23.96 per cent of the market with Reliance and Vodafone Essar competing for second spot with 18.54 and 17.72 per cent share respectively. Five others share the remainder.

If you think India is currently a highly competitive market it’s about to get a lot more interesting with the announcement that the Indian Telecom Commission has given consent to allow Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs ) to launch their services in the country.

Following the commission’s approval, the Indian government will soon issue a formal notification along with guidelines for MVNOs.

The Commission says that MVNOs won’t be allowed to do "multiple parenting". Instead each MVNO will only be allowed to tie up with a single mobile operator in an area of operations. Mobile operators will be allowed to tie up with multiple MVNOs. The Commission further revealed that the licences to the MVNOs will be awarded for a 20 year period.

MVNOs are normally associated with developed markets where niche players emerge to address market sectors that need extra services or are being poorly serviced by the network operators. It may seem a little early for the Indian market, but with the rush to capture market share the operators can easily overlook the requirements of enterprises and high worth individuals – these sectors may be expecting a little more attention.

There will be no shortage of MVNO takers in this market and each will be keen to address the higher ARPU customers. Whether or not they will succeed will be another thing since the track record of MVNOs in developed markets has been mixed at best.

To top that off, India will finally auction its third-generation wireless radio (3G) spectrum by the end of this year, a sale originally planned for January this year but delayed because the downturn.

The telecoms ministry had earlier expected the auction to raise 300 to 400 billion rupees ($6.4 to $8.5 billion), but the finance ministry estimated the sale would bring just half as much because of the general economic downturn.

Video: Green Planet Episode 5: Sustainable Production for a Green Product Life-Cycle

28 05 2009 – So much attention today is paid to increasing energy efficiency as a way of going green, yet sustainable production is an equally important consideration for the ICT industry. Whilst many companies are increasing energy efficiencies, fewer focus on toxic waste, and even fewer get top marks for making absolute reductions in their own greenhouse gas emissions from the product manufacture and supply chain.

Many elements need to be considered early on in the production process, from the selection of raw materials to how design decisions may affect the green credentials of a product further on in it’s life-cycle. A "cradle-to-grave" approach, combined with recognition of international regulations help in reducing the ICT production footprint.
