Net Neutrality: http://blogs.ec.europa.eu/neelie-kroes/netneutrality/
Century-old assumptions of telephony are challenged and voice will be reinvented as new applications that are no longer recognizable as phone callsIt can no longer be improved in a way that is meaningful to customers - the basis of competition will shift from quality and reliability to flexibility of communication in multitude of use cases beyond telephony. Users will evaluate services based on the breadth of use cases available, not on traditional quality metrics. The post-disruption value system will unbundle voice from the network on which it travels to unleash innovation of voice use cases and applicationsTogetherwithVoLTE, for the firsttime in wholetelcohistory, mobile willhave the opportunitytohavebetter voice qualitythan fix line. Fix sound is 3,5 kilohertzVoLTE sound is 7 kilohertzWhere previous cell phone voice codecs only supported frequencies up to 3.5 kHz and upcoming wideband audio services branded as HD Voice up to 7 kHz, Full-HD Voice supports the entire bandwidth range from 20 Hz to 20 kHz. For end-to-end Full-HD Voice calls to succeed however, both the caller and recipient's handsets as well as networks have to support the feature.
Twilio has one of the most robust APIs in the technology industry. The API helps connect users via voice or messages from any client they are using. That includes adding voice and messaging functionality to the browser or within a mobile app. Twilio is taking the notion of communication, bringing it to Web technology and unleashing it to a new class of developers. Twilio’s business model is to enable millions of developers to use their free APIs and developed apps so that Twilio can charge a margin for the calls and messaging that comes from those apps.

Operators invest large amounts of money in technology and marketing to develop and promote mobile data services, hoping to compensate for the loss of voice revenue. It is however expected that the compensating effect of data revenue will wear out by 2013. By then, mobile data will have become a commodity just like mobile voice today and the usual price battle between operators will continue. · Some mobile operators try to bring added value to their network by adding Centrex services inside their networks, hereby ignoring that Centrex solutions are not meeting the requirements of most midsize and large enterprises. These enterprises are investing in very advanced PBX and UC eco-systems, deeply integrated inside their IT environmentand are not willing to outsource this critical and demanding part of their business to a Centrex platform. Ignoring this fact means accepting the downward spiral of enterprise mobile voice revenue. Some mobile operators invest in a Voice VPN solution that is only partially answering the needs of enterprises to integrate their mobile fleet into their infrastructure.
- 90% of data stored in the internet produced in last 2 years. This trend will just continue. So there will be a huge amount of data that needs to be stored somewhere - The amount of data in our world has been exploding, and analyzing large data sets—so-called big data—will become a key basis of competition, underpinning new waves of productivity growth, innovation, and consumer surplus, according to research by MGI and McKinsey's Business Technology Office. Leaders in every sector will have to grapple with the implications of big data, not just a few data-oriented managers. The increasing volume and detail of information captured by enterprises, the rise of multimedia, social media, and the Internet of Things will fuel exponential growth in data for the foreseeable future
