Article abstract:
The economic development of Indonesia, with its 17,000 islands and 230 million people, will depend heavily upon information and communication technology. The Government of Indonesia has been working to establish an appropriate regulatory framework, to build an encompassing network infrastructure and to develop a sustainable ICT platform for national development. The population’s lack of ICT awareness, including within the government, the lack of a mature ICT industry and local language content and complex questions of individual accessibility present significant challenges.

Article abstract:
Dealing with the growth of anytime/anywhere communications access and workforce mobility is a key challenge. Efficient communications and collaboration - locating and reaching the right people, at the right time - is critical to business success. Unified messaging solutions break down the boundaries between e-mail, instant messaging, mobile, VoIP telephony and conferencing. Next-generation messaging platforms will let workers access voicemail and fax data alongside their e-mail, calendar, contact and task data, and manage it - even by telephone.

Article abstract:
The rise of bandwidth-intensive communication by individuals and businesses alike is rapidly absorbing capacity of both wired and wireless systems. Just six per cent of 3G subscribers viewing video can exhaust network capacity in many areas. In addition, the introduction of software-based telephony systems has facilitated the introduction of communications-intensive business applications. New technologies such as the ultra-high-speed Metro Ethernet Network for optical connectivity and 4G wireless solutions such as WiMAX, LTE and EV-DO Rev C are coming to the rescue.

Article abstract:
The Internet and the Internet Protocol, IP, caused an ongoing revolution in the telecommunications sector. The traditional rules and business models of the sector no longer apply. IP makes it possible to transmit all types of traffic - data, voice, video, etc - on a single network and to offer many new services. This is redefining the traditional roles of carriers, mobile and fixed operators alike as each of them tries to occupy a space in the new market environment.

Article abstract:
Internet protocol, IP, networks are destroying the traditional telephone service operating company business models. IP networks are cheaper to build and run. They allow operators to consolidate voice, data and video traffic on the same network and provide a broad range of new applications and services. Operating companies have watched cable companies, which they felt would be their chief competition, but have let Internet service providers - such as Skype, Google and Yahoo - establish themselves as communication providers and become dangerous competitors.

Article abstract:
The Internet has brought many changes, but few as interesting as the rapidly growing phenomenon of social networking. MySpace, YouTube, Skype, Cyworld, Wikipedia, videogaming, blogging and many other communal activities have grown, literally, from nothing a few years ago to tens of millions of users. Equally surprising is the growth of mobile social networking, particularly among younger users. Mobile’s anytime anyplace availability, compared to the more limited availability of desktop or laptop Internet access, has helped propel its strong growth.

Article abstract:
IPTV - its technology, quality and functionality - is finally ready to take on the competition. The one-to-one, interactive nature of IPTV lets operators personalise service, offering an extensive list of options without overloading the infrastructure. The interactive nature of IPTV makes it easy to gather data from the set-top box about individual viewer preferences and lets users schedule recordings or send messages to their friends while watching. Data collected by operators also lets advertisers target their messages to specific groups precisely.

Article abstract:
IPTV plays a pivotal role in the strategy of any operator that wishes to be more than a communications pipe. Value-added services, such as IPTV, guarantee vital revenues, help maintain the customer relationship and provide a base for additional services - such as on-line shopping, interactive gaming, video-on-demand - and the revenue they bring. IPTV is, above all, a way to build a two-way service, interact with the subscriber and personalise the service offering in an increasingly fragmented market.

Article abstract:
Portable TV, television on the move, has never been popular. The sets were too big and heavy, the antenna was awkward and the battery life was bad. New technology, the cell phone, 3G mobile networks and handsets, and a number of new standards for mobile TV including DVB-H, have finally made mobile TV a viable proposition. Earning a reasonable return on investment, however, requires a relatively low cost, high-performance, infrastructure solution such as that provided by a flexible direct-to-transmitter architecture.

Article abstract:
The mobile content sector is in a state of flux and uncertainty. Both content providers and operators want to ‘own’ the market. Content providers would like a Web-type model with free content, but operators want to charge for the content and not become mere re-transmitters. Whatever the model, the success of mobile content will depend upon the quality of the user experience, ubiquitous and seamless network availability, and pricing schemes that reflect the user’s perception of the value of mobility.

Article abstract:
Mobile telephony, a novelty and luxury until recently, now outpaces traditional telephony throughout the world. In developing nations, where the cost of wired infrastructure was always prohibitively expensive, mobile is the communications system and a social and economic lifeline for those that use it. It drives economic development and brings better health, educational, social and government services. In India, even the teawallah, the dhobi and the sabziwallah’s (tea vendor, launderer and vegetable seller) use mobile phones for their businesses.

Article abstract:
Digital television is changing dramatically due to the growing availability of Video-on-Demand and interactivity, and service providers are excited by the revenue streams this will bring. Technology for interactive and on-demand services is here. Service providers, however, cannot let what happened in the music industry - when they ignored MP3 and let smart, motivated entrepreneurs take over the market - happen to them. Interactive games, interaction with popular TV quizzes and other novelties can increase customer satisfaction and reduce churn.

Article abstract:
Planning your TV viewing according to broadcaster schedules will soon end. On-demand TV that lets you watch what you want when you want is arriving. Over time, quality has improved and the selection grown, but untying the viewer from the broadcaster’s schedule is the greatest change in the service model since the introduction of TV. The demand for ‘personalisation’ of TV programmeming and modern equipment that lowers the cost of content production are broadening the range and availability of commercial content.

Article abstract:
Satellite services play an important role in the growth of communications and entertainment services in the Asia-Pacific region. Satellites are facilitating the spread of high-definition television and direct-to-home programmeming, IPTV and mobile TV services. Satellite transmits special events throughout the region using multi-casting to provide local language coverage in each country. Although Asia, historically, has imported much content, satellite distribution now lets Asian providers distribute their content throughout the region and to Asian communities around the globe.

Article abstract:
Asia-Pacific satellite communications is facing numerous challenges. The fleet will soon need replacement, but unless new sources of capital are found - such as condo-sat, where partners share transponder capacity and capital investment on larger satellites - it will be hard to sustain the traditional business model. Mergers and acquisitions are not considered practical, but partnerships between multiple operators to plan, finance, procure and market capacity might work. Two new markets, however, are growing - satellite mobile telephony and military communications.
