Femtocells and Wireless HDI to Drive Convergence of Voice and Video Content in the Home, Says New WTRS Report

Share Article

A new report issued by WTRS finds that the opportunity for content and voice service providers is larger today than ever. The emergence of Femtocells and Wireless HDI enable new services and applications for broadband communications and digital video.

Emerging wireless technologies such as Wireless HDI (WHDI) and femtocells are driving the convergence of voice and video content in the home. Femtocells allow cellular service providers to offer continuous mobile phone service to the significant percentage of the population who have unreliable phone service in their homes. This is the missing link to allow consumers to avoid the sometimes poor quality of service historically associated with VoIP alternatives, while at the same time eliminating dropped mobile calls in their home.

Wireless HDI technology enables the wireless distribution of uncompressed high definition video content to television sets as advanced as the 1080p sets entering the mass market today.

"Service providers who adopt WHDI into set top boxes will provide absolute premium quality service without adding substantial cost," said Kirsten West, PhD, principal analyst with WTRS. "Consumers want high quality, high definition video content and will pay a premium for the ability to utilize the full capability of their TVs."

The WTRS Report, "Wireless Connectivity Technology Trends Summer 2007 Report" identifies other conclusions as well, including:
