Telecom trends in next 10 years (2)

Let’s get into the details of one of these four trends—digital home

Iphone has leaded the innovative breakthrough in handset and drive the mobile internet a big step. Everyone to be connected to internet anytime anywhere isn’t just a fairy tale. But what’s next?

It’s digital home. In the last ten years, people are having analog TV to LED TV, a tape recorder to DVD or even hard driver recorder. However telecom hasn’t changed the home scenario very much in term of interaction between different devices.

Imagine this: all the electronic devices (such as TV, set-top box, recorder, PC, media phone) at home can “talk to each other” and be controlled by a core device ”smart kit’. All the devices are connected by wifi and all the contents at different devices can be shared seamless. Just by one flick, the contents you are reading at your phone can synchronized to TV simultaneously. Furthermore, with home Gateway, all your devices at home can access internet through fix or wireless. And vice verse be accessed by the devices outside of home. Basically you can take all your contents at home with you and control most of devises remotely through digital home solution.

So what are the benefits for our life? First, it brings us convenience. Easy sharing contents through wifi free us from copying from one device to another. Easy access allows us to retreat what we want remotely. Second, it provides us fantastic user experience. Almost everything can be done by one flick.

And how about telecom operators? The convenience of accessing the content seamless and without the limitation of time and distance will drive users to consume more bandwidth. While the growth of speed/bandwidth is the growth of the whole telecom industry. So the digital may become an application to sustain and consume the growing speed/bandwidth capacity.

What makes above happen is the key technology name “dlna’. Google it!
