Future Convergence of the Telecommunication Industry

The Internet also is transmitted through the wire but it uses more advanced technology, communications and data transfer protocols and dominant of these is the IP protocol. In turn, TV broadcasting at the moment is in transition from analog to digital television.

From the above it can be summarized that they are developing in different directions, which increase in CAPEX and OPEX for the telecom market and inconvenience to users when using these technologies.

In this study, we propose the concept of integrated services through the convergence of all four sectors of the telecommunications industry based on the IP protocol.

The concept is comparatively simple. In Norway, for example, it is called "hamburger model" - all in one. For the consumer, it allows for a unified access to all...
