Stratecast Partners, a division of Frost & Sullivan, is pleased to announce its Exclusive 2006 Quarterly Webinar on Tuesday, April 4, 2006 at 12:00 p.m. CST / 1:00 p.m. EST.
Small telephone companies, as well as Tier 3 telephone companies were the first to build IPTV networks and capabilities in the U.S. Tier 1 U.S. Telcos have been more focused on building their triple play networks on a much larger scale and debating the merits of when and where fiber should be deployed in support of video services. The rest of the world has differing standards and issues and may be as focused on mobile TV.
This analyst briefing will provide fact-based observations, and both specific and general professional services trends that suggest likely vendor segments’ success in supporting telephone companies around the world in deploying IPTV in competition with cable and satellite TV operators.
“Telephone companies around the world have placed an IPTV stake in the ground, believing they cannot compete against cable operators in particular in winning and keeping residential customers without triple and quad play services,” notes Program Manager, Robert Clark. “Yet most telephone companies and their personnel are woefully uneducated where video is concerned and need not only network build-out support, but also business planning and modeling, content negotiating and management support. IPTV professional services can be a welcome addition to traditional network equipment decision-making.”
Those interested in participating in the interactive webinar should send an email to Mireya Castilla – Corporate Communications at mireya.castilla[.]frost.com with the following information: your full name, company name, title, telephone number, e-mail address, city, state and country. She will send the registration details via email upon receipt of the above information.
This briefing will be especially beneficial for telephone companies, Tier 1 and 2 network infrastructure equipment manufacturers, solution integrators, IPTV “point solution” providers and other professional and specialized services companies.
