“Consumer demand for mobile content is driving enormous change in the underlying network architectures,” said RCR Wireless News Technology Reporter Kelly Hill. “Software-defined networking, cloud access and faster networks are speeding up the shift toward a content-anywhere world. Operators are working on new content delivery methods, such as LTE broadcast, and meanwhile you also have connected cars joining the network and advances in Wi-Fi. All of these things are happening simultaneously, which means there is a lot of juggling as operators try to figure out how to monetize the content flowing across their networks.”
RCR garnered insight from experts across the content delivery ecosystem on the state of the industry, from content delivery network providers, data center operators, and companies that are developing and testing both new and refined content delivery techniques. The report explores a broad range of developments and trends in customer usage as well as new and existing technologies, and the partnerships that are changing the question of who owns the customer.
“Any user can access any content – that doesn’t mean there aren’t opportunities for symbiotic relations with content providers and operators,” said Cam Cullen, VP of global marketing at Procera Networks.
