That “the world is shifting to all digital” is today rather stating the obvious. Gone are the days when I could
wander to the video/dvd shop and rent myself the latest big movie and buy a big bag of popcorn. While I
watched with a certain sadness as the local Video/DVD rental guys closed their doors I had no choice, if I
wanted to continue watching films, I had to subscribe to the online providers. Now of course, it’s second nature and I expect to choose from a number of providers on my Smart TV, depending on who bought the rights to the new series of Game of Thrones first. I expect to be able watch a trailer, I expect to be able to rent SD or HD , I might want to purchase it, I might want to rent for 3 x days , hell, I may not want to pay a monthly subscription at all – I only want to pay for what I have watched – see BlinkBox etal.
Enough of the analogies. We know that the march of new technology is virtually unstoppable. In the Telecoms space we have all read a gazillion articles on what the Next Generation Networks (NGN), for example, VoIP/4G will bring; flexibility, costs savings and ease of application development.
The point is the march of all IP networks in the Telco
world is now a reality.
