Generating money in a mobile TV world - December 2006

Initial commercial broadcast TV-to-mobile (BTTM) services are expected to launch in the UK this summer while streaming and download 3G video services have been available since 2003. Media companies should now be evaluating their opportunities in the mobile video market because 3G penetration is growing and broadcast TV handsets will be arriving soon. The following four factors will be crucial building blocks for the successful development of this market:

  • Technology
  • Partnerships
  • Content
  • Mobility

Next Generation Gap - The impact of new technology on the European Telecoms Industry - December 2006

The findings of this report are based on in-depth interviews with business leaders and influential stakeholders in European telecoms and technology.

The European telecoms industry is at a defining moment in its development. As broadband IP becomes increasingly pervasive, telecoms companies are facing four critical challenges: intensifying competition, increasingly empowered customers, a process of polarization between "commoditised" and "value-added" business models, and a rapid technological development. As the industry seeks ways to tackle these issues, there is widespread uncertainly across the telecoms landscape. Ti date, the response from operators has largely been focused on M&A, and to pursue investment in their networks at a patchy and uneven pace.

West Midlands Priority Clusters Internationalisation Programme - Business Plan for 2006/7 ICT Cluster - December 2006

In the spirit of what has now become the formally agreed dual key approach to the provision of international trade and investment services, UKTI agreed with AWM a 4.5 million, three year programme to add an international dimension to the work being undertaken in the ten priority clusters.

The programme allowed strengthening of the six sub -regional UKTI international trade teams based at Chamber/Business Links with the balance of the monies being devoted to programmes to help the companies in the clusters to improve their international trading performance through direct exports or through some form of overseas investment, including everything from technology licensing to new plants.
