Researchmoz presents this most up-to-date research on "Australia - Broadband Market - Insights, Statistics and Forecasts". The report focuses primarily on quantitative market metrics in order to characterize the growth and evolution of the Market.
The National Broadband Network continuing evolution
Since being implemented in 2012, Australia's NBN has undergone significant changes. The late-2013 strategic review of the NBN, commissioned by a newly elected government, established a very different framework. Instead of 93% of the population being covered by FttP, the new architecture has called for a hybrid network incorporating FttP and FttN, and utilising existing DSL and HFC plant.
Overall, the initial development of the NBN reflected a serious response to the relatively poor quality of Australia's broadband infrastructure. It was also a response to the intransigence of the dominant telco, Telstra. The government was minded to change its broadband infrastructure plan from a regional to a national focus, which to a degree has been linked to the development of the digital economy supporting policies relating to e-commerce, e-health, e-education and smart grid infrastructure. These are all aimed at utilising the NBN for a myriad of purposes beyond broadband.

High Performance Computing Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019, http://www.researchmoz.us/high-performance-computing-market-global-industry-analysis-size-share-growth-trends-and-forecast-2013-2019-report.html
High Performance computing is defined as aggregation of processes for delivering higher and efficient performance as compared to other desktop workstation or computer helping the companies to solve problems related to engineering, business, or science. High performance computers are clusters of more than one processor with node size range from 16 to 64 nodes. High performance computers help to solve problems of recurring and complex operations as individual nodes work together and hence can solve problem more efficiently than one computer. High performance computing has wide applications in various fields such as weather forecasting, molecular modeling, physical simulations, and quantum mechanics. Factors such as economic competitiveness and new product innovations are driving the demand for high performance computing market currently. Moreover recent developments such as cloud based approach in high performance computing market are captivating SMEs (small to medium-sized enterprises) in the market. SMEs using high performance computers would minimize the initial investments for building infrastructure, hardware implementation and thus the high performance computing market is expected to grow exponentially in near future. Globally high performance computing market is experiencing a strong adoption as increase in data centers and huge investment by government is increasing rapidly among the users.
LED Display Driver And Lighting IC Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019, http://www.researchmoz.us/led-display-driver-and-lighting-ic-market-global-industry-analysis-size-share-growth-trends-and-forecast-2013-2019-report.html
This market research report analyses the LED display driver and lighting IC market on the basis of its types, applications and geographies. There are different types of LED display drivers such as supply voltage, display mode, output current, number of digits, multiplexed display capability and packaging type. LED display drivers are found in a wide range of applications such as Industrial control indicators, Relay drivers, Digital clocks, Instrument panel meters, LED matrix displays, Professional audio equipment, Bar-graph displays, Medical equipment, Dot matrix displays and LED light supplies for smart phones among others.An LED display driver is an IC (integrated circuit) offers the circuitry essential in order to interface common microprocessors or digital systems to LED display. Included on an LED display driver may be a multiplex scan circuitry, static display memory and high current segment and digit drivers for displays. Among these two applications, LED Display Driver and IC Market for the lighting applications are estimated to grow with a high CAGR during forecasted period. Display application holds for the largest share of overall LED driver IC market.The market for LED display driver and lighting IC market is driven by the rising demand for energy efficient displays and lighting solutions used in applications such as Liquid Crystal Display TV backlights and hybrid cars. Several initiatives are taken by government to phase out demand for radiant bulbs in lieu of power efficient lighting and high quality picture images, provided by LED have increased the usage of LED driver IC in a wide range of applications such as lighting and displays.
Residential and business broadband markets: growing adoption of faster services
Although the business market in Australia was quick to embrace broadband, mainly to access faster data speeds, a significant proportion of smaller operators has yet to establish an online presence, and by early 2014 only about 38% had a business website.
The government's 'Broadband Availability and Quality' report, published in December 2013, showed that 1.4 million premises (13% of the total) across many areas of the country had no adequate broadband infrastructure. These areas include regional and remote regions but also pockets within urban communities. Given the state of broadband availability and speeds, many businesses still depend on mobile rather than fixed-line broadband. A growing number in areas where access to the NBN has been made available have switched to fibre broadband services, which enable these companies to compete in the global economy more effectively. The faster speeds of fibre infrastructure will see the rapid adoption by businesses of services such cloud computing, online interaction, and media conferencing. Business broadband has also allowed greater choices in working environments, with the ability for employees to tele-work, either from home or on the road while making use of improved mobile broadband. As such, smartphones and tablets form an increasing part of the business ICT environment.
DSL and HFC markets: stable growth as copper plant survives within the NBN
The DSL sector continues to show resilience in the marketplace, bolstered in recent years by operators adopting new technologies which can deliver greater data capacity on legacy copper infrastructure. In conjunction with Telstra's unbundled local loop service, which provides a platform for competitors to offer broadband services, the slow-down in the rollout of the NBN has also meant that the number of customers expected to migrate from copper to fibre-based services is far lower than initial NBN Co forecasts. Many telcos have installed their own DSLAM infrastructure, enabling them to provide fairly high-speed internet services via ADSL2+.
Following the strategic review of the NBN, which emphasised a combination of FttN and HFC architecture, the transition from DSL to fibre-based infrastructure is likely to be on a far smaller scale than formerly envisaged.
The cable sector has been stable in recent years, and though Telstra and Optus have upgraded parts of their cable networks with DOCSIS3.0 technology, there has been little investment in expanding network footprint given that operators expected these networks to be incorporated within the NBN and then superseded by FttP. The new NBN has placed a greater emphasis on existing hybrid fibre coax plant being part of the national broadband plan. As such, many cable customers in NBN areas will not be migrated to the new fibre network.
