Top 10 telecom trends for 2009 — more of the same!

August 14, 2009

Friends, I had written a post on TelecomYou way back on December 30, 2008. Interestingly, nothing really has changed as far as these top 10 telecom trends are concerned.…

I’ve been thoroughly bored with developments in telecom… and 2009 promises to be boring — actually, steady, with more of the same!

Don’t look around for too much of innovations though!

1. WiMAX vs. LTE — when will this debate get over and done with?

2. Growth of 3G services in places where it hasn’t taken off or started!

3. IPTV — well, it needs to catch up and grow substantially.

4. More of GPS enabled devices as mobile navigation attempts to grow stronger.

5. Near field communications. A report elsewhere on the web talks also about NFC phones starting to roll out in Taiwan.

6. Further adoption of femtocells… hope the Forum does much, much more in 2009.

7. Embedded Internet devices.

8. Carrier Ethernet should gain steam.

9. More of mobile VAS and mobile Web

10. More of mobile OS wars.

Now, I wonder, what happened to the following, or what’s the status! These were supposed to be hot not so long back!

1. OFDM
2. VCSELs
3. TD-SCDMA
4. MIMO

Well, do any of you, my friends, see anything different happen? Would be glad to hear about those!
