Convergence as sustainable competitive advantage in the telecommunications sector: a case of the Telkom South Africa

Rajcoomar, Amendra. January 2012 (has links)
M.Tech. Business Administration. Business School. / Telkom's revenue started to decline due to the high churn rate of fixed line customers. Telkom's deployment of the fixed mobile technology was intended to be a solution to the revenue decline. The development of unique products using Fixed Mobile Convergence remains a major challenge for Telkom. The study was undertaken as a case study with the intention of determining whether Telkom had the ability to converge the fixed line and mobile technologies respectively in order to boost its revenues by gaining competitive advantage. Primary data was collected through questionnaires that were completed by ten managers employed at Telkom SA within the fixed mobile division. Secondary data was collected from sources such as relevant literature, business and academic journals, books, the media, and the internet.

ICT convergence : impact on Namibian ICT operators

Coetzee, Coenraad J. W. 12 1900 (has links)
Thesis (MBA) -- Stellenbosch University, 2007. / Today we face a reality where existing power relations concerning economical, political and cultural institutions and forces are changing. It is about more than just the right to use a technology in itself; it is a matter of having, or not having, access to infonnation and knowledge. The use of information and communications technology (lCT) is an important and powerful tool when it comes to distributing and sharing these resources (Bridges.arg, 2006). The unequal distribution of and the differences in the possibility to use rer effectively are often referred to by the term digital divide (DDN, 2006). Does this sound quite pessimistic? However, a change is taking place since all countries on earth from the richest to the poorest are actually increasing their Ier usage. The problem is that the developed countries are using convergence (three separate communication sectors: information technology, telecommunications and broadcasting merging to become a single communication service sector) to escalate their access to and use of ICf at a much higher speed, which in fact widens the digi tal divide instead of shrinking it (Bridges.org, 2006). Today no country can afford to neglect investments in ICf if it wishes to raise its living standards or to prevent it from being left behind as other countries exploits the possibilities of ICf. Why is ICf considered to be an effective tool for bridging the international digita1 divide? On the United Nations Development Programme's website one can read: " .. .ICf is an increasi ngly powerful tool for participating in global markets; promoting political accountability; improving the delivery of basic services; and enhancing local development opportunities" (UNOP, 2003). These aspects can be of great importance for developing countries in their effort to gain economic development and improvements. Furthermore, it is also a question about every human's right to have access to infonnation (Sida, 2004). According to Steve Case (AOL Time Warner, Chainnan of the Board) every decade has some word associated with it. In the 'SOs, it was the PC. In the '90s, it was the Internet. For the rest of this decade, the key word is going to be convergence (Thompson, 2003). In Namibia a digital divide exists between income groups as well as between the country's rural and urban population. Namibia is sti ll far from providing equal access to information, but Namibia is well positioned to deploy ICf to its advantage. Namibia has a functional telecommunication infrastructure, political stability and an attractive economic environment for investors. However. the geographic and social challenges of Namibia require innovative approaches and considerable effort. Competition and convergence will improve the situation. recommended to expand the set of potential drivers and specifically focus on the relation between convergence and economic growth.

An efficient and scalable core allocation strategy for multicore systems

Unknown Date (has links)
Multiple threads can run concurrently on multiple cores in a multicore system and improve performance/power ratio. However, effective core allocation in multicore and manycore systems is very challenging. In this thesis, we propose an effective and scalable core allocation strategy for multicore systems to achieve optimal core utilization by reducing both internal and external fragmentations. Our proposed strategy helps evenly spreading the servicing cores on the chip to facilitate better heat dissipation. We introduce a multi-stage power management scheme to reduce the total power consumption by managing the power states of the cores. We simulate three multicore systems, with 16, 32, and 64 cores, respectively, using synthetic workload. Experimental results show that our proposed strategy performs better than Square-shaped, Rectangle-shaped, L-Shaped, and Hybrid (contiguous and non-contiguous) schemes in multicore systems in terms of fragmentation and completion time. Among these strategies, our strategy provides a better heat dissipation mechanism. / by Manira S.

Understanding a large-scale IPTV network via system logs

Qiu, Tongqing 08 July 2011 (has links)
Recently, there has been a global trend among the telecommunication industry on the rapid deployment of IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) infrastructure and services. While the industry rushes into the IPTV era, the comprehensive understanding of the status and dynamics of IPTV network lags behind. Filling this gap requires in-depth analysis of large amounts of measurement data across the IPTV network. One type of the data of particular interest is device or system log, which has not been systematically studied before. In this dissertation, we will explore the possibility of utilizing system logs to serve a wide range of IPTV network management purposes including health monitoring, troubleshooting and performance evaluation, etc. In particular, we develop a tool to convert raw router syslogs to meaningful network events. In addition, by analyzing set-top box (STB) logs, we propose a series of models to capture both channel popularity and dynamics, and users' activity on the IPTV network.

Mediakonvergensie as internasionale fenomeen – drie Afrikaanse dagblaaie en werknemerspersepsie

De Beer, Linda 03 1900 (has links)
Thesis (MPhil (Journalism))--University of Stellenbosch, 2006. / The arrival of the Internet and digital technology the past decade has revolutionised the media industry worldwide. Newspapers cannot exist separately from other media forms any longer. Newspaper companies have increasingly started to experiment with the incorporation of the electronic media, such as the Internet, in their newsrooms. The term media convergence originated in an attempt to give meaning to the phenomenon whereby different media forms come together or exist in synergy with each other. The purpose of this study is to investigate the phenomenon of media convergence from a newspaper perspective. The focus is firstly on developments on the international media front, whereafter the emphasis is on South Africa. A Research/field study is aimed at determining the knowledge and perceptions of media convergence of the editorial teams of Media24’s three Afrikaans sister newspapers – Beeld, Die Burger and Volksblad. Different definitions of media convergence were considered in an effort to formulate an appropriate definition for the purpose of this study. In terms of this definition media convergence entails the coming together or synergy between different media entities within the same company. A technologically advanced environment with digital multimedia content management systems is conducive to successful convergence. The characteristics of the digital and multimedia newsroom are discussed in a separate chapter. A literature study was undertaken to give an overview of international media convergence practices and existing research on the topic. The focus is not only on how media convergence manifests itself in different parts of the world, but also on the attitudes toward and perceptions of the phenomenon by journalists. The South African media landscape and examples of convergence is discussed, with specific reference to Media24, owner of Beeld, Die Burger and Volksblad. Non-empirical research by means of a survey amongst 60 respondents was conducted to test the knowledge and perceptions of the editorial teams of these three newspapers on media convergence. Multimedia newsrooms operated with the assistance of digital technology is a common phenomenon in many countries. Cooperation across media also exist in the majority of newsrooms in South Africa, but the phenomenon is not as conceptualised locally as in the rest of the world. Differences in the structures of media companies, as well as divergent legislation, have a significant effect on how media convergence manifests itself in a specific country or newsroom.
