BOSTON -- Developments in fixed infrastructure in the UAE will be a boon to broadband Internet and return pay-TV services to growth, according to a new report from Pyramid Research. UAE: Infrastructure Sharing Makes Fixed Broadband Segment More Competitive offers a precise profile of the country's telecommunications, media and technology sectors based on proprietary data from Pyramid's research in the market. It provides a detailed competitive analysis of both the fixed and mobile sectors, tracks the market shares of technologies and services and monitors the introduction and spread of new technologies.

"Narrowband Internet revenue will vanish from the market altogether, while broadband services will be a significant source of growth over the next five years, thanks to being bundled in attractive pay-TV packages," says Kerem Arsal, Senior Analyst at Pyramid Research. In five years, fixed broadband will grow at a CAGR of 5 percent between 2013 and 2017 to its maturity, while generating a cumulative revenue opportunity of $6.6 billion in the same period. Etisalat undoubtedly has an advantage in this revenue segment because it has a more extensive fixed network infrastructure than du, and it is nearing completion on its nationwide fiber rollout. Still, the effects of a planned fixed network sharing agreement remain to be seen, he notes. UAE: Infrastructure Sharing Makes Fixed Broadband Segment More Competitive is part of Pyramid Research's Africa and the Middle East Intelligence Report Series and is priced at $990.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
