Mind Commerce publications cover a wide variety of telecommunications and related areas including:
Location includes everything required to support presence and Location-based Service (LBS) applications and content including Geographic Information Systems (GIS), application middleware, application software, and support infrastructure. Mind Commerce covers all of these important aspects of LBS in a serious of publications, training, and consulting. In addition, Mind Commerce provides the same for the related areas of presence detection, presence related applications, public safety, and homeland security (HLS).
We have the most comprehensive research available that evaluates the market place, business drivers, and competition between the four major broadband wireless technologies including WiMAX, WiFi, LTE, 5G and beyond. Broadband wireless also includes next generation applications, emerging business models, and more.
Virtual Network Operator (VNO) is a network operator that does not own its own network infrastructure. Instead, VNO’s have business arrangements with incumbent operators to offer services to their own customers. Through convergence and new business models, we are talking about a lot more than a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) model as the lines between fixed, wireless/mobile, and next generation networks breakdown. It becomes all about applications, branding and customer relationships.
Next Generation Networks (NGN)
NGN networks represent emerging architectures, frameworks, applications, applications, services, and business models. The challenges and opportunities of NGN’s are many and varied. NGN infrastructure includes Service Delivery Platforms (SDP), IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS), and next generation OSS/BSS solutions. NGN also includes next generation emerging business models that will transform the ecosystem and value chain of many industries beyond telecommunications.
Radio Frequency Identification
Radio frequency identification (RFID) is a general term that is used to describe a system that transmits the identity (in the form of a unique serial number) of an object wirelessly, using radio waves. RFID is just one aspect of unlicensed spectrum that we cover along with other key areas such as Bluetooth, Personal Area Networks (PAN), wireless sensor networks, Ultrawide Band (UWB), and more.
The term “mobile commerce” is often used only to refer to mobile payments, which is only a subset of the overall industry subset. Our research is comprehensive, covering everything from payments, advertising, emerging technologies and business models, convergence with social and location, and more.
