New Opportunities for Operators in the Blended Reality Era

- Ensuring Relevance in a Mobile, Quantified, and Augmented World

LONDON, Aug. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Frost & Sullivan will share insights on the most important trends in the European mobile industry and how they will affect existing value chains and business models. We highlight important developments and what they mean for your business.

The conference will be followed by a live question-and-answer session that will take place on Tuesday, 9 September 2014 at 3 p.m. BST

Frost & Sullivan's Information and Communication Technologies experts Senior Analyst Sheridan Nye and Consultant Lawrence Lundy will highlight the critical developments, the changing value, and growth in the Europe's mobile industry. This online conference will:

  • Explore advancements in mobile devices, including health monitoring and wireless transactions
  • Identify the disruptive threats and opportunities
  • Recommend strategies on how operators can adapt and remain relevant 

"Mobile operators face multiple challenges in an intensely competitive environment where once-reliable sources of profit are fast evaporating. One way to fend off the threats is to emulate their fiercest competitors. This means looking 'inside-out' to become more agile digital businesses," explains Sheridan Nye

Mobile ecosystem participants need to prepare for the quantified and automated world. "When data is the currency of the future, the only sustainable competitive advantage is trust," emphasizes Lawrence Lundy.

PT/EXPO COMM CHINA 2014 Dominating Future Trends Coming in September

Beijing, Aug. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In the era of mobile Internet, our way of life is undergoing dramatic changes. Do you want to set up a home entertainment center in the cloud? Do you want secure on-line finance anytime anywhere? Do you want to protect the safety of your house via Internet of Things? Do you want to manage your health with wearables? If the answers are "Yes", you cannot miss PT/EXPO COMM CHINA 2014.

On September 23rd, PT/EXPO COMM CHINA 2014 will unveil itself in Beijing China International Exhibition Center. With a big stage of 45,000 m2, more than 500 global giants will lead you "into the future" such as China Telecom, China Mobile, China Unicom, Potevio, Datang Telecom, FiberHome Technologies, ZTE, Huawei, NEC, NOKIA, Changfei, Hengtong, UNION VOOLE, Samsung, Sony, CNTV, Tencent, Sina, Netease, Ali Telecom, FunTalk, Telling, Soshare Mobile, Suning Mobile, Gome.com.cn and 35.com.

New themes getting closer to you

Science and technology are developing by leaps and bounds. The Expo abandons out-of-date ideas and absorbs new concepts. It will launch two thematic areas, i.e. "Smart Life Pavilion" and "Virtual Operator Pavilion", which will push new concepts closer to you.

Recently, China Telecom partnered with FiberHome to form the smart home industrial alliance, while Huawei and other companies initiated the smart home entertainment alliance. Although they have different priorities, both focus on establishing a "One Cloud and Multiple Screens" smart entertainment ecosystem, which will enable users to pay for water and electricity bills, check traffic violation, and enjoy cloud video, cloud games and cloud education at home.

Under the evolution of 4G, cloud computing and big data technologies, ZTE thinks SMART2.0 has come. Smart phones, home appliances and smart wearables will understand human demands gradually, which will bring about values beyond our expectation. China Mobile launched In-Sim card targeting at the Internet of Things, so that consumers could easily enjoy smart healthcare, Internet of Vehicles and NFC payment.

We all have a vision for smart life. Virtual operators are also trying to have a share of the pie. The Expo especially creates "170 Virtual Operator Pavilion" with the theme of "Debut, Convergence and Win-win Cooperation -- Virtual Operators at your Side". The pavilion covers 5,000 m2. Brands will no longer compete on price, but rather on differentiation. Various value-added services such as "Smart Mobile Health", "Smart Transportation" and "Smart Community" are launched for the practical benefits of consumers.

Incumbents revitalize on their accumulated strengths

2014 marks the very first year for 4G. The reform in the telecom sector is speeding up. While basic telecom services are reaching the ceiling, incumbents in the market are actively exploring new industries such as mobile Internet, Internet of Things, optical communications and information security, which are taking effect.

Take time-honored Potevio for example, with innovation, it has transformed itself from a traditional manufacturer to an integrated information service provider. To our knowledge, Potevio's self-developed TD-LTE4G system has integrated functions such as communications, broadcasting and visualized emergency command and control, which  has laid out its smart city blueprint for regions like Yinchuan.

Hall 4 is "Special Pavilion for Optical Communications and Tests". Here we could experience the optical network cities strategies designed by the three operators and learn more about the latest progress of Broadband China. Secure and fast optical communications could eliminate blind areas for mines and airplanes, and prevent the information leakage in areas like military affairs, national security and smart home. With the further enhancements of skills, we would be capable of embracing more possibilities in our life.

Industry insiders have pointed out that PT/EXPO COMM CHINA co-organized by MIIT and CCPIT is a leading Gala Event in APAC. It has attracted outstanding companies from more than ten countries and regions including the mainland, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Canada, UK, Finland, Germany, Israel, Japan, Korea, Sweden and US, whose new releases will define the trends of the industry to a large extent.

Pre-registration, New experience

The theme of "Getting New Concepts Closer to You" has attracted huge visitor to the events, especially industry outsiders. They have shown tremendous interests in new themes such as "Smart Life Pavilion", and just could not wait to experience cutting-edge technologies yet to be launched.

According to the events manager, people can now log on to the official website for pre-registration to secure free access and opportunity to become VIP audience for "ICT China -- High-level Forum 2014" (including badge with a value of 2000 RMB and a full package of documents). In addition, pre-registered visitor also has opportunity to participate in the lucky draw for Huawei, Phicomm and Sony smart phones. The five-day expo is expected to receive 200,000 people from both China and overseas countries, creating another historical high.

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."

SEA-US: Global Consortium to Build Cable System Connecting Indonesia, the Philippines, and the United States

MANILA, Philippines, Aug. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A consortium of seven global telecommunications companies agreed today to cooperate in the construction and operation of a new submarine cable system that directly connects Southeast Asia and the United States with NEC Corporation as the system supplier. The Southeast Asia - United States "SEA-US" consortium consists of PT. Telekomunikasi Indonesia International (Telin), Globe Telecom, RAM Telecom International (RTI), Hawaiian Telcom, Teleguam Holdings (GTA), GTI Corporation (a member of the Globe Telecom group of companies) and Telkom USA.

"The SEA-US project is connected seamlessly with Telkom's Domestic Backbone, and the cable will provide unmatched latency from Indonesia to the United States," said Syarif Syarial Ahmad, President Director of Telin. "The project will also support Indonesia's strong economic growth and its government's Master Plan for Acceleration and Expansion of Indonesia's Economic Development (MP3EI). We began pursuing SEA-US in 2013 and are very proud to be a part of this historic project that marks the first gateway from the east part of Indonesia to the world."

In addition, Gil Genio, Chief Operating Officer for International and Business Markets of Globe Telecom, stated, "Our country has become the preferred destination for the outsourcing and offshoring industry, including major call centers, business process outsourcing providers, global financial institutions and a host of other multinationals that require very large bandwidth. We have also seen the explosion of the mobile Internet, enabling a new lifestyle for our mobile customers and businesses. The SEA-US project will enable Globe to meet tomorrow's bandwidth needs, and is part of our effort to provide a great customer experience on their mobile and other devices, as well as add even more diverse options for companies to connect to the U.S."

Russ Matulich, Chief Executive Officer of RTI, continued, "The SEA-US Cable will provide much needed Asia-US connectivity and will be the fastest cable connecting Southeast Asia with the United States. It provides essential route diversity from the North Pacific and taps into to the strong economic growth of more than 1.5 billion businesses and consumers who are internet savvy and data hungry."

"Guam is a strategic location in the Pacific which allows GTA to successfully connect the Asia Pacific region to the United States. GTA's expansive and redundant network enables secure interconnectivity to other cables, increasing Guam's importance to future cable builds," said Robert Haulbrook, CEO and President of GTA.

Eric Yeaman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hawaiian Telcom, said that "Hawaiian Telcom's participation in the SEA-US project strengthens Hawaii's role as a key strategic hub for traffic diversity and redundancy between the US and Asia. Additionally, investing in the SEA-US system will allow Hawaiian Telcom to efficiently meet its internal long-term Trans-Pacific capacity needs, as our customers increasing demand for bandwidth continues to grow."

The SEA-US submarine cable system links the five areas and territories of Manado (Indonesia), Davao (Philippines), Piti (Guam), Oahu (Hawaii, United States) and Los Angeles (California, United States). The system will be approximately 15,000 kilometers in length, avoiding earthquake prone areas in East Asia, and thereby helping to ensure stable connectivity.

When completed in the fourth quarter of 2016 at an approximate cost of US $250 million, the cable system will provide an additional 20Tb/s capacity, connecting Indonesia and the Philippines to the United States with state-of-the-art 100G technology. This capacity will cater to the exponential growth of bandwidth demand between both continents.

"Backed by more than 40 years of experience in constructing over 200,000 kilometers of submarine cable infrastructure, NEC is one of the world's top vendors of submarine cable systems," said Mr. Naoki Yoshida, General Manager at NEC's Submarine Network Division. "The construction of this advanced system enables NEC to capitalize on its experience and contribute to worldwide communications by expanding connectivity and capacity to this increasingly important Trans-Pacific route."
