DSL Chips: Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2013 to 2018

LEXINGTON, Massachusetts (February 6, 2013) – WinterGreen Research announces that it has published a new study DSL Chips: Market Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2013 to 2018. The 2013 study has 232 pages, 72 tables and figures. Worldwide DSL chip markets continue to achieve significant growth in spite of the dire predictions of market demise.

According to Susan Eustis, lead author of the study, “Deutsche Telekom, British Telecom, AT&T, Bell Canada, Century/Qwest and many other carriers have made clear they will use DSL, not fiber, for the majority of lines because it’s cheaper. Increasingly, that’s DSL from a neighborhood DSLAM (FTTN) with short loops that will soon be capable of 100 megabits through bonding and vectoring. There is plenty of copper wire in the telecommunications networks that can be used to provide broadband connectivity from fiber in the neighborhood, DSLAM connectivity to copper wires running into the home.”

The rapid advance of end to end optical broadband networks continues to threaten to make xDSL obsolete, but copper will never go away, fiber is too expensive to use it to replace all the copper and the copper works in many cases and does not need to be replaced. xDSL markets will be strong for some long time to come as copper remains a transport line.

Copper is everywhere in the telecommunications network. It is still the primary wireless backbone transport means, meaning it continues to be vital as new wireless systems continue to expand their markets. It predominates in the local loop, creating demand for systems that are able to support high speed signal transport over copper wire.

Both smart phones and tablet devices depend on wire line backhaul, much of which is copper. As copper goes away, xDSL goes away, but this is certainly not happening within the forecast period. The development and growth of the broadband digital subscriber line (DSL) and communications processing markets is assured as carriers seek to leverage their investment in copper wire infrastructure. DSL is the way to do that with its support for high speed communications and video signal transport.

Vendors consider companies that have access to broadband or communications processing technology as potential competitors. Established competitors, suppliers of products based on new or emerging technologies, and customers who choose to develop their own technology.

Deutsche Telekom, British Telecom, AT&T, Bell Canada, Century/Qwest and many other carriers have made clear they will use DSL, not fiber, for the majority of lines because it’s cheaper. Increasingly, that’s DSL from a neighborhood DSLAM (FTTN) with short loops that will soon be capable of 100 megabits through bonding and vectoring.

Even the DSL customers have a hybrid fiber / copper connection; it is just the last mile that is copper, hence requiring DSL.

The communications consumer end points worldwide are moving to 100% wireless smart phones that can connect to the Internet. The communications infrastructure worldwide will remain wire based to connect the central office to the base stations, and to provide Internet / IP based connectivity to the home. The wire based communications infrastructure worldwide is all moving to fiber so as to handle the increased demand for bandwidth.

The copper is not efficient for the cable companies because of the demand for bandwidth to the home that the cable companies are providing. The copper is not efficient in the wireless backbone connectivity of the central office to the wireless base stations, and hence there is a priority on replacing the copper that is there first. The copper from the curb or from the neighborhood to toe home is efficient; therefore the need for DSL persists.

Worldwide tablet market revenues at $799 million in 2011 are anticipated to reach $1.7 billion by 2018. DSL chip markets are forecast to grow year-over-year throughout the forecast period. This is in the context of a world communications infrastructure that is changing and seeking to leverage the existing plant to hold down costs. Technology is enabling interaction, innovation, and sharing of knowledge in new ways. DSL chips promise to bring significant new broadband for Internet access capability making the Internet available for increasingly productive, efficient use.

Cardiac Event Ambulatory Monitors and Recorders: Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2013 to 2018

LEXINGTON, Massachusetts (February 1, 2013) – WinterGreen Research announces that it has published a new study Cardiac Event Ambulatory Monitors and Recorders: Market Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2013 to 2018. The 2013 study has 316 pages, 101 tables and figures. Worldwide markets are poised to achieve significant growth as event recorders find ways to support lowering the cost of care delivery by supporting shorter hospital stays and more home based services.

New markets in clinical diagnoses and clinical studies are emerging as prices decrease and technology creates more advanced devices. Smart phones include the technology to implement a core device used for m-health implementations. Unit functions are being extended from direct arrhythmia symptom analysis to sleep studies and clinical drug efficacy studies creating significant growth opportunity.

According to Susan Eustis, lead author of the WinterGreen Research team that prepared the cardiac event ambulatory monitors and recorders market research study, “Shortness of breath is a common symptom of cardiac disease. It is frequently misdiagnosed as a respiratory symptom or ignored by patients and is not even considered a cardiac symptom when the clinician is making a diagnosis. Cardiac event ambulatory monitors can detect arrhythmias and get people to treatment faster before it is too late to correct congestive heart failure.”

Early treatment is essential and the technology is a vital aid in providing that treatment. Hospitals and clinicians will have increased access to devices as insurers realize the value of detecting and treating cardiac disease early. Sleep studies and clinical drug efficacy study opportunities are creating significant growth opportunity.

Cardiac Event Recording and monitors are evolving as a services industry. Patients do not pay directly for units, they are provided by a clinician and the clinician is reimbursed by CMS in the US as a fee for service. In this manner the vendors participate in the services market. The cardiac event recording services industry is fragmented and characterized by a large number of smaller regional hospital and home care service providers.

Consideration of Cardiac Event Recorder Market Forecasts indicates that markets at $197.8 million in 2012 will reach $862.7 million by 2018. Growth comes as more emphasis is put on early diagnosis and prevention of disease. Heart failure patients participating in home based programs get called back from nurse within 20 minutes of transmitting readings. This is similar to the response time available in a hospital and positions products in the large and growing telemedicine market space.

For a patient that has arrhythmia and a device detects symptoms, there is the ability to take life saving action. Quick response brings the matter to the attention of the clinician often without patient involvement, helping better serve the patient. Advice can be rendered as to how and why weight fluctuation is a issue and how control of disease is based on lifestyle and diet. Rapid weight gain can indicate fluid retention and a worsening of cardiac function.

This study illustrates the cardiac event recording market driving forces and provides the market shares and consideration of market size and number of recorders prescribed or used. It describes monitoring services used and services provided to subscribers, reimbursement by insurance carriers. The principal competitive factors that impact the success of cardiac monitoring solutions are addressed in the comprehensive market study

Digital Enterprise 2020
Consumerization of IT & Enterprise IT
CES 2013 Las Vegas
A prospective brief and worldwide event report by Bernard Dubs
Bernard Dubs attended the event by ‘Business Influencer & IT Industry Analyst’ invitation.
Digital Enterprise 2020, a board vision: From the (Silo) Industrial Model to the (Cellular) Digital Enterprise in
the emerging Digital Economy & Knowledge Society of the 21st Century.
Executive Summary
One result of the on-going consumerization of
IT, including mobility (smartphones, tablets) &
BYOD, Social Media and Cloud is that the CES
Las Vegas is often an indicator of upcoming
disruptions or improvements in IT. At CES 2013,
the majority of announcements and
demonstrations were ‘marginal’ or ‘incremental’
rather than game-changing or even gameinfluencing.
Consolidation, maturation, and
stabilization of digital technologies, devices
(especially true for tablets) and services were
the norm that could be observed. The fact of the
matter is that this year ‘CES pillars’ companies
such as Ford, Coca Cola or Unilever were
represented more by their marketing or
innovation managers rather than their CEOs.
The above is ‘good news’ for enterprise IT as it indicates a plateau, a respite or a breathing period and
this should be nice in helping IT professionals to learn, organize and improve their ability to manage the
‘Babel Tower’ of user-led IT devices, services and other innovations that have proliferated over the past
few years. Our point of view is that gives 12 to 24 months to optimize the business value of what’s
already been unleashed. Indeed, it takes time to go from early stages of adoption into maturity: when
change and innovation are the norm, adaptation – not speed is the standard.
BIT Analyst Group advises to follow the following consumer-world imported technologies that will have an
impact on Enterprise IT in the near or medium term:
· Mobility : Smart Phones, Laptops & tablets
· Augmented Reality
· Gamification
· (External) Social Media & Media Command Centers
· Public Cloud
· Gesture-based Computer Control
This Bitradar is reporting on the developments of these technologies as showcased at CES 2013.
