Research and Markets: Communications Markets in Brazil - 2009 Edition

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/0cdd01/communications_mar) has announced the addition of the "Communications Markets in Brazil - 2009 Edition" report to their offering.

Despite challenging economic conditions in 2009, expansion in mobile data services and broadband Internet access will fuel the growth of the Brazilian telecom market, helping it retain the position of the largest telecom market in Latin America, according to this latest report.

Communications Markets in Brazil offers a precise, incisive profile of the converged telecommunications, media, and technology sectors in Brazil based on exclusive market and economic data collected by the author. The 30-page report provides detailed competitive analysis of the fixed and mobile sectors, tracks the market shares of technologies and services, and monitors the introduction and spread of new technologies such as WiMax, IPTV, and VoIP.

"We estimate that total telecom revenue in Brazil in 2008 reached $55.8 billion, up $7.4 billion from 2007," comments Fernando Faria, senior analyst at Pyramid Research and author of the report. "This growth has been fueled due to a jump in mobile penetration and data services per subscriber," he continues, adding that mobile subscriptions as a proportion of population jumped from 65 percent in 2007 to 79 percent in 2008. Pyramid expects the subscription base to grow at a 7.9 percent CAGR between 2008 and 2013, reaching 222 million mobile phone lines and 109 percent penetration by year-end 2013.

"This would place Brazil's penetration rate above markets such as Mexico and Colombia," adds Faria. Following the 50 percent growth in mobile data ARPS from 2007 to 2008, Pyramid expects data to continue increasing its relevance in the Brazilian mobile market, where ample room for growth is anticipated. Due to these increases, Pyramid revised its market size estimates going forward and anticipates data services, fixed and mobile, will boost the total market size despite the decrease in fixed and mobile voice revenue to reach nearly $64 billion in 2013, equating to CAGR of 2.9 percent in the next five years.

Government involvement in the sector is promoted by Brazil's telecom regulator, Agência Nacional de Telecomunicações (Anatel), whose 2009-2010 agenda will focus on a thorough revision of the basic telecommunications law (Lei Geral das Telecomunicações, LGT), triggered by Oi's acquisition of Brasil Telecom. Anatel's agenda also includes overseeing M&A activity, number portability, and WiMax spectrum licensing.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
