Mobile Wallets in India
The average Indian is so steeped in conventional business and finance practices that it is quite an effort to lure him into the world of electronic or mobile payments, leave alone the use of ATM and credit cards; No this is not the educated urban Indian that I am referring to here, but then a few of us still shy away from virtual purchases and payments.

| |LTE spectrum auction: Will India liberalize telecom investment policy?
Though India is the second largest telecom market based on mobile user base, the country could not attract investments in mobile ventures from companies such as China Mobile, Qtel, MTN, Verizon, Telefonica, Orange, Teliasonera, T-Mobile, and others. The forthcoming LTE 4G spectrum auctions will be a big opportunity for Indian telecom ministry to attract big telecom operators in the world. However, India needs to liberalize its investment policies and guarantee hassle-free investments. Allowing foreign companies with 100 percent stake will attract major investments.

| |Karnataka's mobile users are country's most dissatisfied
Daily News & Analysis
Soaring bills, network failure, unkept promises on sops, have prompted millions of dissatisfied consumers in Karnataka to opt for another service provider in the last one year. The state has received the maximum number of mobile number portability (MNP) requests in the country, according to a recent report of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI). As of January 2012, 34 lakh consumers in Karnataka have made MNP requests. Though Delhi has the highest teledensity at about 23.8 crore, the number of MNP requests registered there (about 15 lakh) is far less than Karnataka, which has a teledensity of about 9.6 crore. Andhra Pradesh comes second in MNP requests with 30 lakh, followed by Gujarat. Reliance, Tata Docomo, and BSNL have been the big losers from MNP in the state.

| |The Telecom Cloud OpportunityEricsson
Cloud computing, along with mobility and ubiquitous broadband, is underpinning the creation of the Networked Society. As we move towards a connected world, telecom operators have a unique opportunity to position themselves to capitalise on the growth of cloud services - both as providers and adopters of the technology
This white paper talks about how you can optimise customer experience with end-to-end services assurance
This white paper describes the connected world; a technology vision for the next decade where mobile digital technologies have the potential to empower everyone regardless of who they are or wherever they may be located. In a world increasingly characterized by migration and mobility, it is paramount that nobody is left behind. Digital nomads and remote workers currently attract much of the attention but the connected world will only become a reality when our industry digitally empowers new arrivals in a 20 million megapolis like Mumbai or small farmers and artisans in peripheral rural regions. These will be the tipping points. To support the connected world, technologies will have to be multi-purpose, multi-standard and inclusive. A vast web of virtual relationships and digital interactions between people and things will require flexible, distributed broadband technologies as a backbone and cloud infrastructure, intelligent networks and multiple layers of IT and support systems binding everything together.
With the telecom industry under greater competition than ever before from cross-industry players and content providers, many operators today realize that transformation in the VAS space is important for business growth. And for this, a change in mindset is key.
|Are you Ready to Transition to IPv6 (Premium) - View Free Sample
What is IPv6, what if you don't transit to it and how to do it best--find out
Internet protocol (IP) is a system of rules by which data is sent digitally across a network. It sends data as packets, called datagrams, over the network. Each of these data packets consists of a header and a payload.
The header contains data such as the sender's and receiver's addresses, while payload contains the actual information. IPv4 is the fourth and also the most widely deployed version of IP. It is this popularity that has ultimately
led to the need for an updated IPv6 protocol. Before you take the jump, be aware that transitioning to IPv6 is not as easy as toggling a switch. It will require running both protocols simultaneously- unless, of course, one decides to alienate all IPv4 customers. The time when IPv4 is not needed at all lies years away. But the security and performance implications of not switching to the new protocol are serious as well.
|Security- Why WiMAX will not Fail (Premium) - View Free Sample
WiMAX provides robust access control, data privacy and data integrity using sophisticated authentication and encryption technologies. This article investigates the architecture enabling the high-level security In today's fast-paced lifestyle, consumers want communication at faster speed and lower cost, more broadband capabilities as well as nomadic and mobility support. Keeping these demands in mind, IEEE 802.16 working group has come up with a new wireless communications standard called the broadband wireless access (BWA). Commonly known as WiMAX (worldwide interoperability for microwave access), this is a fast evolving technology used to form wide-range wireless networks with high data rate of information transfer. We live in a variety of networking environments for using Internet-based services and applications. Data security becomes an important issue in such interconnected networks in order to safely transmit or receive information. Due to this, different security protocols are designed and deployed with network standards.
