Look at the bus.structure of Samsung, Huawei these are or becoming(Hua)marketleaders in the most Telecom segments,where stands Apple in this..only leader (how long til) in Phones.
Now look at Alcatel,they have the opposite,they have leadership in technology for Telco's for the coming years,so in order for Apple not only winning the Game but losing the war,it would be a good deal,think about it.....
and my Cristal Bal says: Alcayrl will be the Winner,
Next year will see demonstrable evidence of the Internet of Things, real-time communications on the Web, and SDN-enabled platforms with killer applications for them.
So says Cisco, which this week offered its own predictions on technology trends for 2014. They understandably include markets Cisco is focusing on and looking to drive in order to grow revenue.
The first is the Internet of Things, a market that includes IP-enabled sensors embedded in machines to allow them to connect share information with people and other machines across the Internet. This market will see 50 billion devices connected by 2020 and a value of $14.4 trillion, Cisco has said and repeated this week.
Three examples of the Internet of Things in action that will emerge in the next 12 months include real-time information, scale and analytics, says Maciej Kranz, vice president of the Cisco's corporate technology group. An example of real-time information in the Internet of Things is data collected centrally from global production locations, and then readily acted upon by product managers or developers.
An example of scale might be a logistics company needing predictive maintenance information on the shipment of packages. If one tracking site is getting "hot," Kranz says, perhaps package trackers can take action to alleviate shipment bottlenecks.
For analytics, perhaps a vending machine that can notify a supplier when its inventory is getting low instead of that supplier manually visiting each and every vending location to check on inventory. Or an oil rig in the middle of the ocean able to proactively share data on its status with a central monitoring facility.
Another expectation for next year is the use of real-time communications on the Web, such as that enabled by WebRTC. This technology enables browser-to-browser audio and video conferencing, and Cisco is looking to have an H.264 codec added to WebRTC.
Such a capability might be helpful in "high-end" travel where flight arrangements could be quickly changed in the event of inclement weather, says Susie Wee, Cisco vice president and chief technology officer for networked experiences. It could also be helpful in call centers to improve business-to-consumer interactions, she says.
Another trend Wee sees emerging next year is the integration of Internet of Things data from sensors with collaboration tools used by decision making personnel. Such "contextual collaboration" could speed decision making and help enterprises such as retailers better engage with customers.
And with 50 billion devices coming online in just six or so years, Cisco predicts the Internet will ramp up usage of IPv6 addresses next year to prepare for it.
"There are more addresses than atoms on the Earth" with IPv6, says Dave Ward, Cisco chief technology officer of engineering and chief architect.
Ward also expects the hype curve associated with software-defined networking to trend downward next year, replaced instead by actual SDN-enabled platforms offering networking-as-a-service. Such NaaS platforms will employ SDN to integrate networking, servers, storage and applications, he says, presumably as IT cloud services for enterprises.
But what will drive enterprises towards that model will be killer apps, such as virtualized services on top of these SDN-based networks, says Lauren Cooney, Cisco senior director of strategy and planning. Such applications expected in 2014 include security automation tools, analytics and mobility enablers, she says

Valve has joined the Linux Foundation – a move that shows the company’s ever increasing love the Linux and one which will help it to take gaming on Linux to the next level alongside the HSA Foundation and Cloudius System.
Valve already has 65 million active users on its Steam platform and has plans of expanding gaming on Linux with Steam Machines project – a living room device which will be powered by its Linux-based operating system.
The Linux Foundation hopes to contribute the tools while also compelling hardware manufacturers to prioritize support for Linux. Mike Sartain at Valve wrote “Joining the Linux Foundation is one of many ways Valve is investing in the advancement of Linux gaming. Through these efforts, we hope to contribute tools for developers building new experiences on Linux, compel hardware manufacturers to prioritize support for Linux, and ultimately deliver an elegant and open platform for Linux users.”
Another company joining the non-profit organization is Cloudius Systems, which is a startup headed by KVM hypervisor originators. The company is developing a new open source operating system capable of handling virtualized cloud workloads. Dor Laor, CEO Cloudius Systems, said “As Linux Foundation members, we’ll be able to take advantage of both Linux’s large presence plus the Foundation’s open cloud network and events.”
HSA Foundation, a non-profit backed by the likes of AMD, ARM, Qualcomm and Samsung, develops open-standard architecture specifications for heterogeneous parallel computing. Gregory Stoner, vice president and managing director of the HSA Foundation said, “Joining The Linux Foundation is a natural fit for the HSA Foundation as we strongly believe in supporting an open ecosystem, and the HSA Foundation is focused on bringing richer heterogeneous computing into mobile, cloud-based and big data computing where Linux dominate.”

AMD reports resurgence in system builder market
The system builder market is re-emerging after years of taking a hammering as customers turn to local players to help them build and install PCs quicker than rivals shipping them from overseas can manage
The growth in the local system builder market has been noted by AMD, which has seen numbers swell in those channel players that are able to customise an order and deliver it fairly quickly to customers.
Andrew Buxton, EMEA channel director at AMD, said that the system builder market traditionally had been fairly strong but had then imploded with high-profile failures such as Evesham and Mesh and for a while things had gone quiet, but that was now changing.
"Local system builders are holding up really well because they are very responsive and are growing with build to order," he added "A lot of these guys [who were in the market a few years ago] are coming back and it is encouraging."
He said that AMD was determined to engage with more of the system builders and the reseller base that was targeting local small businesses in the year ahead and believed it had a decent proposition that provided partners with high performance products and good margins.
He countered the gloom and doom in the market commenting that the desktop market was holding up well and pointed out that the growth of tablets could help desktop sales, as users started to store more data generated with mobile devices on their PCs.
Buxton identified the end of Windows XP support as one of the reasons why 2014 could be a decent one for hardware specialists as well as a general feeling that there are many customers that need to refresh their desktop estates: "There are lots of loyal desktops out there that are seven or eight years old that are ready for a rest."

psst,why do you think they receive that Government contract..
Advanced Micro Devices on Wednesday said it had been awarded $12.6 million for two research projects associated with the U.S. department of energy’s (DOE) extreme-scale computing research and development program, known as “FastForward”. The DOE award provides up to $9.6 million to AMD for processor-related research and up to $3 million for memory-related research
it's all been written in the Stars......

China Telecom, the largest provider of fixed-line broadband access to the Internet in China, is likely to reduce its 2014 capex budget for fixed-line broadband Internet-access infrastructure by 50% due to urgent demand for setting up initial LTE (4G) networks, according to industry sources.
In comparison with China Mobile which has been actively establishing TD-LTE as its 4G network in China, China Telecom has lagged behind in developing 4G infrastructure, the sources said. Therefore, China Telecom has to speed up establishment of it 4G network and consequently should allocate a large portion of available capex to 4G, the sources explained.
China Unicom has the same problem, the sources noted
if the need is high,alcatel is nearby.......:)
