The Symphony Teleca take on emerging industry issues, technologies and business strategies.
A new year brings new opportunities, and for me this is best reflected by STC’s acquisition of Aditi Technologies.
In Part I of this blog post we talked extensively about what is cable RDK and how it works. In this follow-up blog post, I will explore how broadcasters can leverage this new platform to enhance viewer experiences. Let’s beginning by examining the challenges first.
If you had read my CEO Sanjay Dhawan’s recent blog post, Unlock the Set-top Box, you’d recall that Comcast and Time Warner Cable had formed a joint entity, RDK Management, LLC, to promote a standard, open platform RDK or Reference Design Kit, for video and application services support on set-top boxes and TVs within their subscribers’ homes. Since then, over 2 million US homes had gotten RDK enabled set-top boxes that provide them with both traditional cable services and new IP and cloud-based services. With these enhanced capabilities, this new platform presents a great opportunity for broadcasters and producers looking to refresh today’s viewer experiences. But exactly how can broadcasters take advantage of this new technology?
Now that Mobile World Congress is behind us and we've left the sunny Barcelona to go back to our rainy or snowy sanctuaries, it's time to reflect on the show that was.
The retail industry has been undergoing a massive transformation for some time now. It all started with a simple online presence for the brick and mortar stores over a decade ago that evolved into full-blown e-commerce websites. This eventually led to today’s various complex online marketplaces that continue to change the way customers shop. The integration of So-Mo-Lo (social, mobile and local) has also redefined the way retailers interact with their customers.
Hard to believe it's only day 3 of Mobile World Congress, which already feels like it's been going on for months. The Symphony Teleca team is now fluent in Catalan ;), and can name every single tapas you’ll find in Barcelona.
Get ready for the mobile industry’s biggest, most exciting event of the year! From 24-27 February, Mobile World Congress will be taking over Barcelona.
As a self proclaimed “auto man”, for me, the International CES is a must attend annual industry event and year after year, it continues to grow from an automotive perspective.
As 2014 began, Symphony Teleca has identified the hottest mobile trends for the year and beyond.
