the convergence of telecommunications and IT.
our analyses we concentrate on strategic planning
and investment issues:
are the new business opportunities for the various
industry groups involved in the market?
Where are the pitfalls?
Where will the next mergers and acquisitions take
In our 170 country reports we provide 3 to 5 year
scenario forecasting for the various key markets,

to the telecoms industry, as there are too many
variables in play, associated with politics, the
regulatory environment and technology.
