Telecom Services: A Global Outlook
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) September 10, 2008
Growing significance of the need to access right information at the right time has brought to fore the importance of telecommunication services in various organizations and industries. Worldwide telecom services market is anticipated to grow rapidly, driven by sustained growth in North America and Western Europe, along with stupendous performance in emerging regions such as Asia. Long-term growth in the telecom services market would be driven by rising adoption of wireless data services and introduction of mobile e-commerce technologies.
Mobile communication industry benefited from the transition of voice-oriented 2G networks to a more advanced data-centric 3G networks. With the introduction of 2.5G and 3G networks, mobile communications industry has broadened its horizon by facilitating broadband and Internet access to mobile users. Mobile messaging services market is set to boost prospects in the telecom services industry, driven by the consistent rise in the number of new and innovative applications. The sector has evolved from the earlier standard text-based messaging to the more sophisticated multimedia-based, real time wireless instant messaging. Such technological advancements have prompted operators to offer value-added packages to customers with integrated picture, text, video and voice features, as part of their efforts to enhance return on investment. Increasing popularity of SMS and desktop instant messaging has opened the door for Wireless Instant Messaging (WIM), which incorporates features for improved performance and greater geographical coverage for customers.
With mobile messaging becoming the future of mobile data services, conventional short messaging services (SMS) are poised to enter a new development phase with the move towards richer messaging services (EMS and MMS), along with value-added applications such as advertising, information services, and gaming, among others. Apart from offering new source of revenues for mobile operators, these valued added services facilitate users to customize messages with features such as animations, sounds, and pictures.
Worldwide market for broadband fixed wireless access (BFWA) services is anticipated to grow rapidly among rural and urban operators. Though Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) was launched as an economical way to facilitate voice services in the rural areas, its scope has widened considerably. BFWA's ability to deliver rapid Internet access to remote areas that are not reachable by cable and xDSL operators is a major driving force, and is hence considered ideal for developing countries with inadequate wireless infrastructure. On the other hand, use of FWA is expanding rapidly owing to the vendors' offer of reliable and cost-effective voice service solutions along with data capabilities. Several wireline technology operators are utilizing FWA technologies to offer services to users in areas, wherein services are constrained by geographic and economic factors.
