Study: Satellite Multicast Could Reach $403 Million by 2007Report by Frost & Sullivan Examines Content Delivery Via Satellite (July 24, 2001)
"Partnership, acquisition and failure will be the main theme of Content Delivery Service's market for the next 12 months due to the state of the economy," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Patrick French. "However, a return to 'old economy' measures leads to a better understanding of this market's true potential."
Content Delivery Services are undeniably a new and important market sector. As long as the Internet has bottlenecks and congestion problems, there will be a need for these services.
"Content Delivery Services via Satellite are fundamentally an important market segment, yet remain relegated to certain niches that can benefit from the economics of satellite multicasting. This segment will grow in the future as broadband Internet access grows worldwide," says French.
Content Delivery Service providers emphasizing the use of satellites must focus on the restricted number of areas where their value proposition beats the terrestrial alternative and build a core competence that can be capitalized upon when the market for their services grows.
Zero latency was a concept once thought unattainable. But the gap is closing as technologies are being developed and implemented. Content Delivery Services will help bridge the gap and bring latency closer to zero and maximize performance. One day content will be delivered to the "ultimate edge" of the internet...the computer sitting on your desk.
