This week we look at IP Multimedia Subsystem, opportunities for service providers in financial services and some coming attractions from Pyramid Research. It's all this week in a "heavy" edition of Research Rewind.
- In his Heavy Lifting blog post IMS: Revival or Last Stand?, Jim Hodges, Heavy Reading Senior Analyst, asks whether developments such as RCS and VoLTE are evidence of a comeback for IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS), or just a last gasp. (Spoiler alert: He leans toward the former.)
- In the latest Heavy Reading IP Services Insider, "Service Providers Hit Pay Dirt In Financial Services Sector," Heavy Reading Research Analyst Denise Culver addresses the opportunities and challenges of network security in the financial services vertical. She writes more about it in her Heavy Lifting blog post.
- Coming soon from Pyramid Research: Mobile finance in developed and developing markets in Asia; and how operators and vendors around the globe can capitalize on the growth of mobile social networks .
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!
— Matt Donnelly, Managing Editor, Pyramid Research
