Japan - Telecoms, Mobile, Broadband and Forecasts. Updated 2012 Report

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dublin - Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/m4nmcx/japan_telecoms) has announced the addition of the "Japan - Telecoms, Mobile, Broadband and Forecasts" report to their offering.


Telecommunications Operators Face A Coming Of Age, Ramp Up Initiatives To Counter Threats By Ott Competitors / Allies In its home market, Japan has an aging and decreasing population base that requires the creation of services and social systems for support. The market has also seen a change in values and the behaviour of people wanting quality instead of mass consumption, and a move from ownership to efficient resource use and sharing. Japan's sophisticated IT infrastructure and high broadband penetration sets the scene for improved productivity, convergence of industries and a more flexible industrial structure.

Japan has assumed a dynamic leadership role in many aspects of global and regional telecommunications. The government has been active in regulating its telecommunication industry to introduce more effective competition. This competitive market is challenged to develop the most effective business structures to achieve commercial success.

Market Highlights: - Over 98% of Japan's 120 million mobile subscribers use 3G services after 10 years in operation. Japan became the fourth country in the world to deploy Long-term Evolution (LTE) technology in 2010 with DoCoMo's competitors to launch their own LTE networks into 2013; - Mobile operator eMobile launched its LTE network in February 2012 and was acquired by Softbank in October 2012; - Over 100 million mobile internet subscribers embraced iPhones, smart phones and tablets and drove data usage to new levels as the society continued to move from connecting places, to connecting people and devices; - New operator UQ Communications, in which KDDI is the largest shareholder, continued its WiMAX rollout and had over 3 million subscribers by mid 2012; - FttX continues to make impressive strides taking 60% market share in 2012 and over 22 million subscribers. Japan has established the second largest FttX subscriber base at around 30% of the world market after China at about 40%; - Cloud-based services with virtual hosting and online storage started to take hold as companies sought to reduce system-operating costs as the financial downturn continued to depress the economy; - Analogue to digital switchover also took place during 2011 except in tsunami affected areas, presenting opportunities for all in the value chain.
