Amdocs released results of a survey looking at the communications industry trends in the U.S. and U.K. in 2007. Based on the responses of 200 industry decision makers in the telecom, cable and satellite industries, Amdocs forecasts service providers will significantly increase investment in customer service, network infrastructure and IP-based services, as well as build their digital content offerings.
According to the survey, IPTV, digital TV, video content and VoIP (voice over IP) are expected to
be the top products and services for 2007, with spending in network
infrastructure for these three areas projected to increase significantly
-- by 77 percent, 81 percent, 71 percent and 76 percent, respectively.
