Total Telecom magazine has just gone to press with its September issue following the summer lull, so watch out for your copy in your post/inboxes in the coming weeks. It includes an extremely fascinating analysis of the fibre network funding debate by Joanne Taaffe (cover story), while our "Focus on Asia" section covers 3G in China, mobile in Japan and IPTV in India, as well as an assessment of current investment opportunities in the region.
Elsewhere our technology guru Roy Rubenstein takes a close and critical look at the issues surrounding subscriber data management systems, and the privacy issues that operators face when they look to upgrade their SDM systems. I tackle mobile TV business cases in Media & Entertainment, a very interesting and timely subject as increasingly more TV services are launched, while services remain difficult to monetise. Our news analysis section tackles network vendor strategies in the face of the increased dominance of Ericsson and Huawei, mobile broadband services, content delivery services and the increased traction with m2m services. Roy also provides a close and personal look at the challenges now being faced by the traditionally innovative vendors in Israel.
Hope you enjoy the read!
