Service provisioning and customer service are extremely important. So is storage and management of digital content, and developing true, end-to-end quality of service in a complex network. Moving away from the traditional push based advertising; IPTV, Mobile – and Online providers are now able to generate a greater accuracy in their statistics. But with the wide variety of technology for such services, the choice becomes difficult; add to the wide variety of vendors quoting for such services, the solution as a whole looses credibility.
