Research and Markets: Telstra - Analyses 2012
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/nsdrpt/telstra_analyses)
has announced the addition of the "Telstra
- Analyses 2012" company profile to their offering.
Ever since David Thodey took over the reins at Australia's largest telco
Telstra (News - Alert) has embraced the new direction being taken by the telecoms
industry, based on a ubiquitous, robust, affordable infrastructure that
can be used to lift telecommunications into the next stage, where the

maintain their traditional products for as long as possible and mainly
for that reason most have continued to defend their monopolistic

media companies; and they made a similar mistake in relation to mobile
broadband, where they lost the battle to the smartphone companies.
The question now is whether Telstra as well as the other telcos will be
able to embrace the developments around the digital economy.
Trans-sector services such as e-health, tele-education, e-government,
smart grids, IoT (M2M), all require a utilities-based wholesale
infrastructure that is separated from the retail services that will be
carried over them.
We are also very critical of the strategy of Telstra Media and we
believe that in its current format is heading for more disastrous
