Recently however, it has been characterised by fierce competition in the mobile and broadband sectors, and by an innovative broadcast sector which has pioneered new models for distributing digital content.
The explosion of data has also presented significant technological challenges to both service providers and equipment manufacturers. They need to continuously evolve the operators’ networks through development and convergence of technology in order to handle continuously rising volumes of voice, video and data traffic on unified network infrastructures.
Faced with these challenges, which are largely consumer driven, telecom companies including mobile and landline operations, OEMs making the equipment for them as well as the manufacturers of the mobile handsets have all been increasing their R&D investment in Ireland and looking ahead to research and implement emerging trends.
