Frost & Sullivan: Colombian and Peruvian Contact Center Outsourcers Focus on the Americas

-- Spain's dwindling contribution to the offshoring segment has compelled market participants to alter their geographical strategy

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, Aug. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A mix of quality and competitive costs ensured that the contact center outsourcing services markets in Colombia and Peru were among the most dynamic markets in Latin America up until last year. Since 2013, the market has lost some of its pace as competitive pressures have intensified with the entry of many participants. To navigate the transformed landscape, contact center outsourcing service providers will have to keep up with new entrants' world-class practices, which have elevated quality standards in both countries.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Colombia and Peru Contact Center Outsourcing Services Markets 2014, finds that the Colombian market earned $1,045.6 million in 2013 and estimates this to reach $2,206.2 million in 2020. Peru's market revenues stood at $385.4 million in 2013 and this is projected to go up to $647.3 million in 2020.

"In the Colombian contact center outsourcing services market, domestic business still accounts for more than 70 percent of the revenues. However, revenues from the offshoring segment are growing at a faster rate than those from domestic business as a result of multiple deals with the United States," said Frost & Sullivan Information & Communication Technologies Industry Analyst Sebastian Menutti. "Meanwhile, in the Peruvian market, nearshoring from South American countries such as Argentina and Chile is bringing in new business."

In 2013, Spain once again emerged as the main destination that offshored work to contact center outsourcing service providers in Colombia and Peru. Nevertheless, offshoring revenues generated from Spain in 2013 decreased in Peru and suffered from a growth slowdown in Colombia, owing to the recent Spanish economic crisis. 

"Consequently, several Colombian and Peruvian contact center outsourcers were forced to refocus their business models and direct their commercial efforts either to domestic businesses in the high-performing local economies or businesses in other countries likely to avail offshoring services," noted Menutti. "Prime targets for developing the offshoring segment have been South and North America, which are expected to become the dominant regions driving this segment by 2020."

GlocalMe Mobile Wi-Fi Hotspot Rental, An Opportunity to be a Millionaire

GlocalMe -- Stay Connected, No Matter Where You Are

SHENZHEN, China, Aug. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hong Kong uCloudlink Network Technology Ltd., manufacturer of the revolutionary GlocalMe pocket Wi-Fi hotspot is proud to announce that GlocalMe service is currently available in over 60 countries and will be available in 100 countries by the end of 2014.

GlocalMe is a global mobile internet access service that offers the GlocalMe G1, a mobile hotspot device which charges local 3G rates and is available with both PAYG and data packages. It also provides capped daily rental plans for rental businesses.

"GlocalMe G1 is a cheap international roaming mobile hotspot which transfers 3G signals to Wi-Fi networks," said Kim Lee, Director of Marketing from uCloudlink. "Allowing for global roaming at local rates, GlocalMe can help international travelers save a lot on data roaming charges. During the design stage, uCloudlink considered the needs of both individual customers and rental customers. It is very simple for rental agencies to operate a GlocalMe mobile hotspot rental business."

Yoyo's Journey – From University Student to millionaire

Yoyo, a university sophomore, discovered the beauty of the GlocalMe while going on a trip to Hong Kong. Renting GlocalMe G1, she found that it offered ample coverage and was inexpensive and easy to use. Because of this, she decided to purchase ten GlocalMe devices and rent them out to her classmates. People were blown away by how the GlocalMe did not require the insertion of a SIM card and provides Internet access in over 60 countries. There is no cost if the device is not used, so there is no pressure for those operating rental businesses. Naturally, the endeavor was quite a success and before long she teamed up with a few friends to open an online rental store. Business was brisk and within months the online store was visited by over 800 people a day. More coverage and being 20% cheaper to rent than other pocket Wi-Fi devices, the GlocalMe is a world apart from similar competing products. 

After three months, Yoyo opened another two online rental stores and now makes 100,000RMB a month. She is looking forward to opening another store and has also begun working with travel agencies in an effort to begin offline sales while also helping to better serve international travelers. The international travel market is growing and over 100 million people have traveled abroad in 2014. "GlocalMe Wi-Fi rental will make my millionaire dream come true and my advice to others is to seize every opportunity they can," she said. Her Taobao store is located at http://shop109917650.taobao.com.

ProTek Devices’ Newest TVS Array Provides Overvoltage Protection in High Speed Applications

TEMPE, Ariz., Aug. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ProTek Devices has introduced a new transient voltage suppressor array (TVS array) for overvoltage circuit protection in a variety of high speed applications such as Gigabit Ethernet, LAN / WAN equipment, notebooks and desktop computers, and more. The new PLR2512 is an ultra-low capacitance (3pF typical) TVS array with 100 watts peak pulse power per line (typical = 8/20 micro seconds).

The PLR2512 is also ideal for integrated magnetics / RJ-45 connectors, security cameras, and industrial controls applications. The device meets IEC standards requirements for 61000-4-2 covering electrostatic discharge (ESD) and 61000-4-4 covering electrical fast transients (EFT). ESD protection is > 25 kilovolts. The PLR2512 protects two line pairs and delivers low leakage current (10nA) and a low stand-off voltage of 2.5 volts. The minimum and maximum breakdown voltages are 2.7 and 3.6 volts, respectively. The maximum snapback voltage is 2.8 volts. The component is RoHS and REACH compliant. Operating and storage temperatures are -55 to 150 degrees Celsius.

This device is available in the space-saving molded DFN-8 package configuration. The package minimizes lead inductance to prevent overshoot voltages during high ESD current events. It has an approximate weight of just seven milligrams. It features lead-free nickel palladium gold plating and a solder reflow temperature of 260 – 270 degrees Celsius. The PLR2512 has a flammability rating of UL 94V-0.

Pricing and Availability
ProTek Devices' PLR2512 TVS array series is now available in mass quantities. Pricing varies by the number of units per order. The TVS array is available in eight millimeter tape and reel, per EIA standard 481. A data sheet for the PLR2512 can be download from the ProTek Devices website.
