A Market Insights report on teleport operators bringing broadcast capabilities and expertise to profitable applications in other markets, from government and military to enterprise and maritime.
Broadcasting is a mature industry in much of the world. It is also an industry facing major change as Internet streaming challenges traditional linear program delivery, new distribution channels further fragment audiences, and the industry consolidates as a result. Strong growth prospects remain in the emerging markets of the Middle East, the Asia-Pacific and Latin America. But the teleport industry – service providers, systems integrators, technology vendors and satellite operators – cannot help looking at the broadcast business and wondering if the market as they know it has a future.
As they adapt to the changing demands of broadcast, innovative companies are also on the hunt for non-broadcast and non-traditional markets to which they can apply their well-established technology, facilities, processes and skills. Examples include IP-based video distribution networks for government, worship, and enterprise systems, as well as "digital signage” and "out of home” networks. The trend is still new, but the experience of pioneers can point the way for others.
