Video services delivered over mobile broadband data networks are both a dream and a nightmare for network builders. Mobile video is in high demand, and consumers are willing to pay for it. However, poor design and high usage can lead to network congestion, negative user experiences and, ultimately, customer churn. While video is often viewed as a killer application for mobile broadband access, it lacks the requisite linear revenue-to-usage business case that has characterized killer applications such as voice and SMS in the past.
In this webinar, Yankee Group Distinguished Research Fellow Chris Nicoll and Analyst Terry Cudmore investigate the pressing issues of mobile video delivery and provide recommendations to ensure that video becomes a killer application, not a network-killing service.
