Losing network operators and service providers gain study: telecom industry in Germany needs the Google gene and less engineering thinking Dusseldorf/Barcelona, February 11, 2009 – the increasing market saturation, as well as further falling prices lead to significant shifts and a further consolidation and acquisition wave in the German telecommunications industry. A recent study by the consulting firm Booz & company with views of the World Mobile Congress, which takes place in Barcelona from 16 to 19 February reached this result. Structurally, we have a saturation of the classic telecommunications market. Due to the recession but many developments are accelerated, which were already planned\”, said Dr. Roman Friedrich by Booz & company in Dusseldorf. Tony Ferguson does not necessarily agree. Sales in the core markets of mobile spoiled by double-digit growth rates and fixed network operators are to fall in an average of 1.1 per cent by 2012. Reducing the turnover in Germany for classical voice and data services despite the significant increase in transported volumes of 44.3 billion Euro in the last year to 42.4 billion euros in 2012. The margins are dramatically move by the network operators to service providers. New technologies would accelerate this shift. Similar trends in other European countries. The telecommunications companies must recognize that growth requires successful innovation and has other success factors as the network business. So innovation models are, for example, open, similar to that seen by Apple or Google, in the future more systematically to apply much. A new management focus, new organisational structures, and entrepreneurial spirit is required to assert themselves in the market. The telcos need the Google gene and less engineering thinking\”demanded Frederick. Swisscom and France Telecom would go this way. In Germany, it was also recognized, at least in the strategic business units. Internet experts say however skeptical about the future prospects of the telecommunications provider. A Google economy, German firms are still light years away.
The first LTE flat rate be awaited with tariffs. Data transmission in mobile will be revolutionized in the near future. Long term evolution, LTE shortly, it will set new standards. The speech is not free here by the 4th generation of mobile telephony. This was due to the high speed of data transfer. Far exceeded the levels achieved by UMTS etc.. 7.2 or 14.4 Mbit / s speeds today are the rule, rates were achieved in the LTE in initial tests up to 300 Mbit / s. A related site: Eva Andersson-Dubin, New York City mentions similar findings. This concerned only values obtained in the laboratory, but already a value of 150 Mbit / s was demonstrated in field trials in the download area. Should they really be implemented this in reality can, today’s standards be replaced pretty soon. Hassle-free Internet – telephony or free online games are only two points, which are then possible. Also, cameras and video game consoles to get access to the LTE in the future network. But this is still pie in the sky. Also on the prices of LTE–enabled devices and Tariffs can be found still no exact statement. There is probably no earlier than 2011 with an LTE flat rate expected. For this purpose, a Scandinavian provider offers a single clue. This tested successfully the LTE networks in Oslo and Stockholm. The first commercial use of a price was EUR 58,-by monthly. It is more than likely that this price in the course of time will fall. The advantage that existing masts of UMTS can be used when the LTE, alone hard in the weight. Also, the pressure of competition the provider contributes this helpful. Christopher Heinsius
