The CEO of TPG Telecom, Iñaki Berroeta, has given a keynote speech at a major comms conference where he spoke about 5G's evolution and phases, 5G and IoT, massive boosts in video traffic, convergence, dark fibre, infrastructure, the NBN, renewable energy, the VHA and TPG merger and plenty more.
The number of connected M2M devices in Australia will grow to somewhere between 25 million and 50 million by 2020, as electronic devices like smartphones, tablets, set-top boxes and game consoles fuel activity with the Internet of Things (IoT).
The growing convergence and connectivity of technology is transforming the way we work, relax, learn, and manage our health, while disrupting, transforming and collapsing industries.
In today’s industrial organisations, we have seen an ever-increasing need for convergence between IT departments and the control room. As automation systems become more advanced, their ability to capture information relating to processes has become both simpler and more effective.
Today, enterprises rely heavily on applications for nearly all business-critical processes. These applications are delivered via a combination of hardware, software and services, known as the application delivery chain. To make this delivery chain work together effectively, IT must take a new and converged approach to network performance monitoring and application performance management.
Samsung this morning opened its first Australian store in Sydney's George Street.
It will be much of the same in the ICT industry this year as it was in 2011, according to a global market trends report just published, which predicts continuing consumer tech disruptions will drive agendas even within the largest of enterprises, and that businesses face a tough time due to economic uncertainty, forcing them to 'pare IT budgets to the bone.'
The ACMA says convergence has broken or is straining many of the constructs and concepts that form the building blocks of current communications and media regulation.
The Government's Convergence Review Committee has taken its next step on the road to making recommendations to government with the release of an emerging issues paper.
Ericsson has produced a discussion paper suggesting that the end game of the Convergence Review should be regulate content and remove any legislative and regulatory barriers to the delivery of content to any device of the consumers' choosing: something that is rapidly becoming technically possible and, within the present limitations widely practiced by consumers.
Cisco says we should be able to access video-based contenet and services anywhere at anytime transferring these seamlessly from device to device. Telstra agrees.
Two decades after the idea was floated by one of his predecessors, communications minister senator Stephen Conroy, has kicked off a comprehensive review of Australia's communications and media regulation, to take account of convergence between telecommunications and broadcasting.
In the era of converged devices it's interesting to see what the marriage between Garmin, a maker of sat-nav devices, and Asus, the Taiwanese consumer electronics juggernaut, can deliver. Unlike Frankenstein's monster, the Nuvifone A50 puts all the pieces together to create a nicely integrated smartphone that's made with the travelling professional in mind.
The ACCC has restructured its Communications Group to create a new branch focussed on the NBN and related issues and another on convergence and mobility.
