The role of innovation and research for the European ICT Industry

Manuel Kohnstamm, ECCA

The regulatory framework for electronic communications: The current state of implementation and steps towards a possible review

Brussels, European Parliament, 30 May 2005


The triple play gloves are off

‘The Triple Play Gloves are off’

  • Border crossing competition emerging between Europe’s communications networks on triple play of video, data en telephony on fixed DSL, Cable, Satellite, DTT, Mobile, WiFi

  • Europe will see more infrastructure competition than many other areas in the world

  • Markets fragment in smaller niches, intense competition for eye-balls, bundling becomes vital

  • Triple play services become independent of infrastructure and of time and place in daily life

  • Only those infrastructures that continue to innovate and invest will survive


Network competition

Network Competition

  • Infrastructure competition delivers tangible real additional benefits

    • Erkki Liikanen, 26th January 2004

18%

  • Competitive network investment has helped drive broadband adoption across Europe

  • Where the broadband market is served by competing platforms, penetration tends to be higher where DSL and non-DSL platforms have similar market shares. Where market shares are skewed towards one particular platform [usually DSL], penetration tends to be lower.

No state support for new generation networks

  • Competitive markets deliver the widest range of technologies and services to customers

  • Private investments continue to deliver solutions to the needs of European consumers

  • European cable operators launched 20 Mbp/s commercial services launched and are trialling 30 to 50 Mbp/s

  • Unlike the first days of analogue tv, DTT today competes with private investments in digital satellite, cable and dsl

  • State investments in FTTH or DTT run the risk of causing market distortions and lessening total investment appetite

  • Aid for particular technologies or in competitive urban areas is dangerous

  • Targeted, well-structured aid such as that recently approved in Spain and the UK will deliver the best outcomes

ECCA Innovation - EuroCableLabs

  • ECL supports the industry by providing professional technical services such as

  • Emerging Technology Research:

    • focus on upcoming technologies such as new generation broadband cable networks, advanced broadband access systems, enhancement of cable communication techniques (Euro-DOCSIS, Euro-PacketCable, etc.) enrichment of TV systems by incorporation of new capabilities such as personal recording and protocols for TV over IP.

  • Technology Standards Development:

    • Cooperation with all major European and international standardisation bodies such as ETSI, CENELEC, ITU, IEC as well as organisations such as DVB, CableLabs, and tComLabs.

  • Vendor Certification:

    • Enabling a broad market of reliable, interoperable cable products applies to techniques such as Euro-DOCSIS, and Euro-PacketCable and is being extended to other technologies like set-top boxes in the coming years.


Ecca innovation future technology trends

ECCA Innovation – Future Technology Trends

  • Future Technology Trends in Cable

  • TV over IP

    • Personalized TV services via IP

    • Integration of TV in IP platform

    • VOD encapsulated in IP

    • Support of interactive TV systems based on broadcasting techniques

    • IP only STBs based on eDOCSIS

  • Home networking

    • CableHome: Management of customers’ in-home network components

  • Cable wireless convergence

    • Wireless services acceptance is growing: PDA, phones, hot spots,etc.

    • Wireless cable extension to bridge regions being unattractive for cables

    • WiMAX as a complement to broadband cable


Conclusions

Conclusions

  • Infrastructure competition guarantees innovation and consumer benefit.

  • Services become platform independent, new bundling will be needed to structure fragmenting markets

  • We will see major inroads by the telco incumbents into new areas such as content and broadcasting

  • State financing can do more harm than good unless targeted at truly remote regions

  • Cable is one of Europe’s leading innovative forces in communications, and is determined to be the preferred quality provider of choice for triple play services to our customers

  • In order to stay competitive, you will see the cable industry accelerating its deployment of digital interactive television, high definition television, high speed data, in-home networking and fixed to mobile convergence
