Consumers want complete mobility to access and distribute content from anywhere within a home, and a new generation of electronic devices and appliances containing embedded modems is making this possible (e.g., TV sets, refrigerators, music players, and printers).
The proliferation of sophisticated services such as Internet protocol television (IPTV), video surveillance, and home station, as well as the increasing occurrence of quintuple play and fixed-mobile broadband bundles are advancing the market towards the connected home and connected enterprise. In this scenario, all electronic devices within a home or office are linked through the Internet.
This connected environment involves person-to-person, person-to-machine, and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications. Hence, it stimulates large increases in bandwidth demand and customized support.
As digitalization is changing the consumers’ expectations and usages, traditional telecommunication operators must adjust to the trend of convergence and the emergence of a new digital lifestyle. In the future, focus will likely shift from the telecommunications services to a new convergent proposal.
