Synopsis For Monthly Features

December 2014 issue of Comms Business

December – Preview of 2015

Comms Business takes a look over the horizon at what we can expect to see in the channel next year. We seek to hear from key players on their views on how markets will fare and what applications are likely to be hot in the next 12 months. We are not seeking product mentions – just opinions on markets and likely trends.

December – Co-location

The role of the data centre within the overall communications mix is growing and becoming much more strategic for the channel. As the need for differentiation increases for all channel players up and down the entire supply cycle, we examine the co-location market to see where resellers can ‘join the game’.
We seek comment from;

- Data Centre operators on their channel offering for co-location services
- Application developers on how they make their products and services available for the channel and the role of the co-location deployment

Case Studies and reseller comment welcome.

December – Future Trends (IT)

The IT market moves at a frenetic pace in terms of technological development. Here editor Ian Hunter offers his own personal view on what we are likely to see in the next 12 months.

December – Fixed Mobile Convergence

Fixed mobile convergence has gained considerable traction as the mobile phone is now, unofficially, the preferred weapon of choice for business calls in and around the office. Comms Business Magazine will look at some of the players trying to carve out a channel niche for their products and assess where they are at in terms of being ‘ready to go’ for resellers wanting to enter this market. We ask the industry some fundamental questions:-

- Where are the major challenges in the FMC market at present?
- Are the Channel seizing the FMC opportunity? How can they capitalise in this market?
- Mobile solutions are everywhere at present, what is the level of demand for FMC?
- What does the future of FMC look like, how does the Channel fit in with that view?

Case Studies Welcome
