Infonetics: Europe’s Big 5 Push for Consolidation as Mobile Service Revenue Drags on the Global Market

Telecom market research firm Infonetics
Research released excerpts from its latest 2G,
3G, LTE Mobile Services and Subscribers market size and
forecast report, which tracks mobile service revenue, mobile voice and
data average revenue per user (ARPU), and mobile voice and broadband
The report shows that in 2013, mobile operators around the world took in
$800 billion from mobile services—including mobile voice, SMS/MMS, and
broadband—an increase of just 1% from the year before. When the growth
rates of the world’s main regions are parsed individually, though, a
clearer story emerges, as Asia Pacific (+5%), the Caribbean and Latin
America (+4%), and North America (+3%) together offset a high
single-digit decline in EMEA.
“Europe dragged global mobile service revenue again in 2013, plagued by
mobile saturation and weak consumer spending across the board—even in
Germany, the euro zone’s largest economy—and fierce price-based
competition in markets including Belgium, France, Italy, Spain, and The
Netherlands,” notes Stéphane
Téral, principal analyst for mobile infrastructure and carrier
economics at Infonetics
adds: “At this point, the CEOs of Europe’s BIG 5—Deutsche
Telekom, Orange, Telecom Italia, Telefónica, Vodafone—are
pushing the European Commission for more consolidation to reduce the
number of operators in each country, from four or five to just three.
The hope is this will restore operators’ revenue growth and margins,
similar to what we saw in Austria.”
MOBILE SERVICES MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
Mobile broadband fueled overall mobile service revenue growth in 2013,
offsetting year-over-year decreases in voice and SMS revenue
Despite the rise of mobile data, blended ARPU
continues to fall or, at best, stay flat in every region except
developing Asia Pacific, where it rose slightly in China
Infonetics anticipates that mobile broadband subscribers will pass
postpaid voice subscribers by the end of 2014
Voice services are expected to stay above 50% of total mobile service
revenue through 2016
Mobile broadband revenue is forecast by Infonetics to grow at an 11.8%
compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2013 to 2018
LTE services are expected to account for half of total mobile
broadband service revenue in 2018, with North America making up the

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years?
This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Qosmos has announced new milestones in the detection of encrypted traffic and in protocol signature coverage.
Qosmos latest software can accurately classify traffic encrypted with SSL/TLS (e.g., Google, Facebook, WhatsApp), P2P traffic (e.g., BitTorrent, MuTorrent, Vuze), and Skype, while preserving the privacy of communication content. These new classification techniques mean that traffic optimization, policy enforcement, and user experience are largely unaffected by encryption. In respect wit...

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time.
