  3. > Video Streaming-Wireless Local Distribution: Technologies and Markets

Research Methodology

Considerable research was performed using the Internet. Information from various Web sites was studied and analyzed; evaluation of publicly available marketing and technical publications was also conducted. Telephone conversations and interviews were held with industry analysts, technical experts and executives. In addition to these interviews and primary research, secondary sources were used to develop a more complete mosaic of the market landscape, including industry and trade publications, conferences and seminars.

The overriding objective throughout the work has been to provide valid and relevant information. This has led to a continual review and update of the information content.

Target Audience

The report has been developed for service providers, vendors, network operators and managers, Enterprise IT staff, investors and end users seeking to gain a deeper understanding of streaming video distribution opportunities and barriers.

The end users can gain thorough understanding of product’s market and capabilities as well as the economics of using these technologies products to improve cost efficiency.
