This week: Why cablecos like IPTV, why telcos prefer hybrid IPTV, and a new showcase for Pyramid's custom research and consulting services
September 2, 2011
This week we look at why cable companies like IPTV, why telecom operators prefer hybrid IPTV, a new online showcase for Pyramid's custom research and consulting services, an upcoming telecom newsletter and more. It's all in this week's edition of Research Rewind.
Heavy Reading's newest Cable Industry Insider, "The Superbox Arrives: Hybrid Gateways to Unify TV & IP," explores the prospects for hybrid gateways, including the market drivers, key technologies, MSO roadmaps, benefits and challenges. It also profiles six suppliers that showed hybrid gateways at the 2011 Cable Show. Read more the report in contributing analyst Craig Leddy's Heavy Lifting blog post, "Set-Tops, Modems Join in Royal Wedding."
On a related note, next week Pyramid Research will publish a Europe Telecom Insider, "The Multiscreen Opportunity Makes for Great Viewing for Traditional Telcos in Europe," which points out that hybrid IPTV seems to be an answer for some telcos that don't want to rely solely on IPTV and who are latecomers to the pay-TV market. Check Pyramid's website next week for more details.
Did you know that Pyramid Research also does custom research and consulting? We just updated the custom research and consulting pages on our website to showcase the services and value our analyst team provides in four main areas: Mobile Devices, Broadband & Media, Mobile Payments/Mobile Banking, and Regulation & Policy.
Coming soon: Matt's Mentions, a regular email newsletter with the top telecom news from around the Web, curated by yours truly and organized by region. Watch this space for news about how you can get the same telecom newsletter Pyramid and Heavy Reading analysts have come to rely on in their own work.
That's Research Rewind for this week. Until next Friday, we'll see you online at Pyramid Research and Heavy Reading. May the telecom be with you!
