(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dublin - Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5ndc5g/germany_digital) has announced the addition of the "Germany - Digital Economy and Digital TV - Insights, Statistics and Analysis" report to their offering.

Germany's market for digital TV and bundled services has grown strongly on the back of excellent DSL and cable infrastructure. The capacity for consumers to make use of VoD and IPTV services will increase considerably during the next three years as cabled 120Mb/s networks increase their footprint and Telekom Deutschland's FttH network expands to reach four million homes, complementing its existing VDSL infrastructure.

Digital TV has undergone regulatory and licensing processes, and successful rollouts will have extended the service to more than 90% of the population. Digital dividend spectrum, released from analogue switch-off and partly auctioned in 2010, promises bandwidth which can be used for advanced wireless services extending and enhancing the reach of converging media. In this report we provide an overview of convergence in Germany, including recent developments in VoD, bundled offerings and VoIP services, together with an overview of the digital and satellite TV markets.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
