This week we look at Ethernet, illegal networks in AME, fixed vs. mobile in Latin America, Romania's telecom future, management trends and IPsec. It's all in this edition of Research Rewind.
- Heavy Reading published a new report, "Carrier Ethernet Service & Technology Trends & Issues: Europe." It highlights key themes emerging from service provider perspectives shared at Ethernet Europe, which took place in April.
- In AME, illegal sharing of Internet connections is cutting into operator profits. But what can be done? Pyramid Research Senior Analyst Hussam Barhoush dissects the problem and offers solutions in his new Insider report, "Illegal Networks Cut Operator Revenue Streams by up to 50%."
- Fixed or mobile? According to Pyramid Research Latin American Analyst Vinicius Caetano, both technologies play well together in Latin America. For more, see his new Insider report, "Why a Fixed/Mobile Fight to the Death Does Not Make Sense for Latin American Operators."
- Pyramid Research published a new Country Intelligence Report, "Romania: Intense Competition and Consolidation Continue to Drive the Market." This is a five-year telco market forecast, including a focus on new business opportunities for operators, handset manufacturers and others. You can download free excerpts of all 60 CIRs (one for each country we cover) here.
- Want to know what managers are thinking about these days? Heavy Reading Senior Analyst Ari Banerjee has some answers in his new Heavy Lifting blog post, "Innovation Osmosis & the Return of D&R."
- Got a sec? Heavy Reading Senior Analyst Patrick Donegan notes that mobile operator sentiment worldwide seems to be shifting toward using IPsec encryption and authentication from LTE cell sites. Read more in his Heavy Lifting blog post, "Mobile Sentiment Begins to Favor IPsec."
- Finally, just a reminder that this is your last chance to register for the upcoming "Making Money on Mobile Broadband" conference in Brazil in next week.
