“Triple Play”is a combination of Internetaccess, voice communication (telephony), and entertainment servicessuch as IP television and video on demand.

The erosion of the traditional voice service, together with theever-increasing competition between companies, is pushing thetelecommunications industry towards a major shift in its businessmodels. Customers want more services in a more flexible way. Today,this shift can only be carried out by offering converged servicesbuilt around the Internet Protocol (IP). Triple Play, a bundle ofvoice, video, and data services for residential customers, is thebasis of this new strategy.

Hens and Caballero explain how and why the telecommunicationsindustry is facing this change, how to define, implement and offerthese new services, and describes the technology behind theconverged network. Triple Play analyses a number of businessstrategies to minimise costs, while migrating infrastructures andoffering new services.

Triple Play:

  • Describes the elementary concepts of triple play serviceprovision and gives detailed technical information to highlight keyaspects.
  • Discussed access networks, transport, signaling, servicedefinition and business models.
  • Covers the latest innovations in Triple Play services such asEthernet in the First Mile (EFM), VDSL2 (Very High Speed atitle="Digital Subscriber Line"href=""DSL/asecond generation), pseudowires andMultiprotocol Label Switching(MPLS).
  • Explores video solutions (encoding, IPTV, VoD) alongsidetransmission and switching technologies (Ethernet, DSL, PON,NG-SDH).
  • Includes a chapter on IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) and onfixed/mobile convergence. 

Triple Play: Building the Converged Network for IP, VoIP andIPTV provides decision makers, engineers, telecommunicationsoperators, network equipment manufacturers, installers and ITmanagers with a thorough understanding of the changes oftraditional voice service and its impact upon thetelecommunications industry.

An eye-opening account of how the hidden rise of personalization on the Internet is controlling-and limiting-the information we consume.

In December 2009, Google began customizing its search results for each user. Instead of giving you the most broadly popular result, Google now tries to predict what you are most likely to click on. According to board president Eli Pariser, Google's change in policy is symptomatic of the most significant shift to take place on the Web in recent years-the rise of personalization. In this groundbreaking investigation of the new hidden Web, Pariser uncovers how this growing trend threatens to control how we consume and share information as a society-and reveals what we can do about it.

Though the phenomenon has gone largely undetected until now, personalized filters are sweeping the Web, creating individual universes of information for each of us. Facebook-the primary news source for an increasing number of Americans-prioritizes the links it believes will appeal to you so that if you are a liberal, you can expect to see only progressive links. Even an old-media bastion like The Washington Post devotes the top of its home page to a news feed with the links your Facebook friends are sharing. Behind the scenes a burgeoning industry of data companies is tracking your personal information to sell to advertisers, from your political leanings to the color you painted your living room to the hiking boots you just browsed on Zappos.

In a personalized world, we will increasingly be typed and fed only news that is pleasant, familiar, and confirms our beliefs-and because these filters are invisible, we won't know what is being hidden from us. Our past interests will determine what we are exposed to in the future, leaving less room for the unexpected encounters that spark creativity, innovation, and the democratic exchange of ideas.

While we all worry that the Internet is eroding privacy or shrinking our attention spans, Pariser uncovers a more pernicious and far- reaching trend on the Internet and shows how we can- and must-change course. With vivid detail and remarkable scope, The Filter Bubble reveals how personalization undermines the Internet's original purpose as an open platform for the spread of ideas and could leave us all in an isolated, echoing world.
