Research and Markets: Qatar - Telecoms, Mobile, Broadband and Forecasts - 2012

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5j8wfd/qatar_telecoms) has announced the addition of the "Qatar - Telecoms, Mobile, Broadband and Forecasts" report to their offering.

LTE and Qatar's National Broadband Network (Nbn) To Underpin Broadband Growth

Qatar possesses a well developed telecoms market, financed in part from wealth generated by natural resources. The last country in the region to introduce competition to its telecoms market, Qatar is improving market conditions, with number portability to be introduced by 2013 and a National Broadband Network (NBN) in deployment.

Broadband penetration is among the highest in the region, with services available via ADSL, Fibre-to-the-Home (FttH), wireless and mobile. Recognising the inherent opportunities in faster communications, Qatar has embarked on developing a national fibre-based access network, known as QNBN. Services are offered on a wholesale basis, with Vodafone already launching services. QNBN plans to extend coverage to 95% of homes by 2015, with speeds of up to 100Mb/s offered.

Qatar has taken advantage of its geographical location to improve international Internet bandwidth and redundancy, with two new international submarine cables entering service in 2012, just in time to cater to increased bandwidth demand due to QNBN and LTE.

Recognising the potential of applying ICT to improve both social and economic development, Qatar has taken steps to develop an Internet economy, with significant government funded initiatives launched in the areas of public administration (e-government), e-health and e-learning.

Mobile services are offered by a duopoly comprised of Qtel and Vodafone Qatar. Since launching services Vodafone Qatar has managed to grab approximately a third of the market, with its share likely to increase once mobile number portability is introduced.

Both Qtel and Vodafone Qatar have also launched mobile broadband services underpinned by 3G or LTE networks. Adoption of such services provides a new revenue growth opportunity as the mobile voice market comes under increased competition.

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...
Everyone talks about continuous integration and continuous delivery but those are just two ends of the pipeline. In the middle of DevOps is continuous testing (CT), and many organizations are struggling to implement continuous testing effectively. After all, without continuous testing there is no delivery.
