Market research firm Infonetics
Research released excerpts from its 1st quarter 2014
Boxes and Pay TV Subscribers report, which tracks IP, cable,
satellite, and digital terrestrial (DTT) set-top boxes (STBs), and
over-the-top (OTT) media servers.
“There was a pocket of strength in the set-top box (STB) market in the
seasonally weak first quarter. North American cable operators stepped up
spending again on top of successive sequential revenue increases as they
transitioned higher-end multiplay subscribers to headed and headless
video gateways and replaced aging, power-hungry standard-definition
boxes with more efficient high-definition boxes,” says Jeff
Heynen, principal analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics
adds: “A boost in overall STB unit shipments this year will come from an
increase in over-the-top (OTT) media servers as service providers in
China and other emerging markets use these devices to deliver live
SET-TOP BOX MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
Worldwide set-top box (STB) revenue totaled $4.8 billion in 1Q14, a
decline of 3% from 4Q13
Cable STBs were the only segment to see unit and revenue growth in
1Q14, each up 5%
Arris finished 1Q14 as the STB market share leader for the 3rd
consecutive quarter, benefitting from the high-definition (HD) cable
STB refresh cycle underway at North American cable operators
North America today commands the largest portion of STB revenue, but
Asia Pacific is projected to close to within 3 percentage points by
2018, driven by a penetration of advanced services such as HD and OTT,
which will set in motion an upgrade cycle
Infonetics forecasts the OTT media server segment to grow from 6% of
global STB revenue in 1Q14 to 14% by 2018

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
