Research and Markets: IPTV Market Leader Report - Year-end 2013: ZTE Wins Big in the IPTV Market Leader Report

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/bmrqkk/iptv_market) has announced the addition of the "IPTV Market Leader Report - Year-end 2013" report to their offering.

The IPTV Market Leader Reports (MLR) identify which IPTV systems and software companies are leading each of the six IPTV market segments: access systems, video headend systems (VHE), video-on-demand server software (VOD), set-top boxes (STB), middleware (MW), and content protection/digital rights management (CP/DRM). The data is further segmented by geographic region as follows: North America, Latin America/Caribbean, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific and the Middle East/Africa.

Among the global leaders, the big winner was ZTE taking the top position in VOD, STB and middleware. Alcatel-Lucent continues to lead in access, while Verimatrix continues to lead in the CP/DRM segment and Harmonic leads in video headends. ZTE has been successful in working with many Asian IPTV operators.

Among the major changes in this report are acquisitions that have closed recently. Ericsson acquired the assets of Microsoft's Mediaroom technology so all Mediaroom customers are now under Ericsson in this report. In addition, ARRIS completed its acquisition of Motorola's assets from Google so ARRIS now appears in new product categories. Interestingly, ZTE has taken the lead in middleware in this report, replacing Microsoft's Mediaroom (now Ericsson) which led for about five years in a row.

The report features complete IPTV vendor rankings for each product category with totals for each region, as well as globally. The report also breaks down service providers by tier (1 - 5) and identifies how many service providers are in each tier where each vendor has products deployed. In addition, vendors that are working with the top 25 global service providers (as measured by total IPTV subscribers) are highlighted in order to better gauge future growth prospects.

More than 80 vendors and 955 IPTV service providers are tracked in this report.

Market leaders are determined by the number of deployed IPTV subscribers using a given vendor's products, except for the IPTV video headend segment which is calculated on input channels.

The author is the only company to track and rank IPTV vendors for each of the six product categories, and has been doing so for many years.

The deliverable is comprised of a 62-page Word document and an accompanying Excel file.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when. The cloud environment has proved to be a major force in transitioning to an agile business model that enables quick decisions and fast implementation that solidify customer relationships.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
