From the fantastical and imaginative to the conservatively realistic, predictions about the telecom forecast for 2014 vary as widely as tomorrow’s weather. But unlike the weather, certain trends have emerged as constants for this year’s telecom landscape. From an upsurge in big data spending to an embrace of cloud-as-a-service solutions, the 2014 telecom landscape holds promise for a new level of engagement and security that will usher in the era of the Internet of Everything.

The Most Disruptive Era? The 2014 Telecom Forecast

  1. 1. Voice | Internet | Television | Network Services | Cloud Services The Most Disruptive Era? The 2014 Telecom Forecast
  2. 2. What does 2014 have in store for the telecom industry?
  3. 3. Predictions range from the fantastic… “New systems that begin to fulfill some of the earliest visions for what information technologies might accomplish — doing what we thought only people could do and machines could not — are now finally emerging.” –Gartner
  4. 4. …to the conservative. “All big industry shifts have been driven by new computing platforms,” InfoWorld says. This year, that platform is the cloud.
  5. 5. But there are a few predictions for 2014 on which experts can agree. Here are our top
  6. 6. #1: Big data will be even more of a big deal. Big data “goes way beyond optimizing e-commerce to embrace all kinds of verticals, from manufacturing to transportation to the electrical grid.” –Eric Knorr Big data spending is expected to hit $114 billion by 2018. Companies poised to utilize big data are in prime position to discover, analyze, and predict new trends, and develop insights in product development, financial planning, and much more.
  7. 7. #2: Cloud as a service—and it’s personal. Public clouds, private clouds, and hybrid clouds—the cloud will become “another delivery model for a range of ‘as-a-service’ offerings,” says BuddeComm. And the personal cloud will join the ranks. In 2014, individuals “will use a collection of devices [to access the cloud], with the PC remaining one of many options, but no one device will be the primary hub. Rather, the personal cloud will take on that role.” –Gartner Scalable, redundant networks that make the cloud accessible from anywhere at any time will be in high demand.
  8. 8. #3: Security, security, security. Especially when accessing the cloud, security will remain a central concern among businesses and individuals alike. Expect “military-grade encryption technology”—like that offered by Time Warner Cable Business Class (TWCBC)—to hold the spotlight.
  9. 9. #4: Systems of engagement will lead the pack. The cloud’s simple scalability allows for individual-focused web interactions in a way never before seen. Expect more experiences like these: • A family doctor in Maine uses Time Warner Cable Business Class telemedicine video conferencing to treat patients in rural areas. • A financially strapped public school district in southern California uses TWCBC’s newly upgraded network to differentiate learning for their diverse student population.
  10. 10. #5: IoT is subsumed by IoE. In 2009, Kevin Ashton famously declared, “The Internet of Things has the potential to change the world, just as the Internet did.” In 2014, The Internet of Everything (IoE) holds that potential. Projected to generate a market worth $19 trillion by 2020, the IoE is worth our attention. “The problem is that most enterprises and technology vendors have yet to explore the possibilities of an expanded internet and are not operationally or organizationally ready.” –Gartner Cablecos like TWCBC are the exception to that rule. From metro Ethernet to telemedicine, TWCBC is ahead of the pack.
