Las telecomunicaciones en México crecerán 10% durante 2011

Afirma Select que telefonía móvil e internet serán los sectores más dinámicos


Los ingresos en el sector de telecomunicaciones en México alcanzarán un total de 26 mil 694 millones de dólares para 2011, lo cual representa un crecimiento de 10.2% en comparación con el año anterior, afirmó la consultora Select.

El segmento de telefonía móvil será uno de los más dinámicos, con un crecimiento cercano al 12%, debido especialmente a una mayor oferta de servicios de Tercera Generación (3G).

Por otra parte, Select afirmó que la telefonía fija seguirá decreciendo ligeramente, y se ofrecerán cada vez más servicios en paquete. Los servicios de telefonía IP mantendrán su expansión, sobre todo dentro del sector empresarial.

La consultora prevé que la larga distancia sufra una reducción cercana al 17%, impactando así a todo el segmento de telefonía.

Select también espera que continúe el crecimiento de internet, lo cual debería reflejarse en una disminución de precios y aumento de velocidades.

México, entre los 30 países para servicios offshore de TI

Países emergentes desplazan a desarrollados en este rubro


México está dentro de la lista de los 30 países para servicios conocidos como offshore, de tecnologías de la información (TI), publicada por la consultora Gartner para 2011, en la que naciones desarrolladas quedaron fuera desplazados por los emergentes.

Cada vez más las corporaciones optan por mover sus centros de servicios de TI a otros países en busca de beneficios que van más allá de bajar costos, como el conformar un portafolios y complementar sus soluciones.

En la lista de 30 países top de América para el offshore de servicios de Gartner aparecen Brasil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, México, Panamá y Perú, atractivos para el mayor comprador de este mercado, que es Estados Unidos. El reporte explica que anteriormente el débil soporte de los gobiernos para estas iniciativas había limitado su desarrollo en América.

Entre los diez criterios evaluados, México obtuvo un "muy bueno" en soporte gubernamental, junto con Chile. El rating más alto en fuerza laboral con especialización y en sistema educativo; en costos, fue el único en la región que alcanzó un "muy bueno" y en el tema de seguridad de datos, propiedad intelectual y privacidad, el único con nivel "aceptable".

Amazon’s third-generation Kindle is the best-selling product of all time on Amazon.com

Amazon’s third-generation Kindle is the best-selling item on Amazon.com, ever.

Kindle-Angle-graphiteThe retail-giant declined to disclose official sales numbers for the latest version of its Kindle, but did say Monday that its e-reader had sold in the millions and surpassed its previous all-time best seller: "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," the seventh and final book in the Harry Potter series.

Amazon also said that many consumers were buying Kindles alongside tablet computers.

"Customers report using their LCD tablets for games, movies and Web browsing and their Kindles for reading sessions," Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com founder and chief executive, said in a statement.

"They report preferring Kindle for reading because it weighs less, eliminates battery anxiety with its month-long battery life, and has the advanced paper-like Pearl e-ink display that reduces eye-strain, doesn’t interfere with sleep patterns at bedtime, and works outside in direct sunlight," the statement said.

The Kindle’s $139 price point is another key reason tablet owners aren’t shying away from the e-reader, Amazon said.

The company also announced — again without disclosing specific numbers — that on Saturday, Christmas Day, more people turned on new Kindles for the first time, downloaded more Kindle apps, and purchased more Kindle books than on any other day in history.

On Amazon.com’s busiest day this year, Nov. 29, it sold products at a pace of 158 items per second — a new company record — ending in more than 13.7 million items to customers in 178 different countries.

Global Climate Change Talks Begin in Cancún

WASHINGTON — Global talks on climate change opened in Cancún, Mexico, on Monday with the toughest issues unresolved and little expectation of a breakthrough on shaping an international treaty to curb emissions of the heat-trapping gases linked to global warming.

But some who attended the meetings, sponsored by the United Nations, expressed muted hope that small steps could be made on a decades-long journey to reduce the planetary threat of rising global temperatures.

The United States entered the talks in a weak position because of a lack of action on domestic climate and energy legislation and continuing disputes with China and other major developing nations over verification of emissions reductions. The United Nations negotiating process itself is on the line, with many saying that the 190-nation talks cannot survive another debacle like that at Copenhagen last December.

This year’s talks come at a low point for global climate diplomacy. Last year, more than 100 heads of state gathered with hopes of fashioning a binding treaty to address global warming. A year later, midlevel envoys are trickling into a Mexican resort with hopes, at best, of averting disaster.

Last year, President Obama had large majorities in Congress and hopes of passing a comprehensive climate and energy bill. Next year, he faces a new Congress much more dubious about the reality of climate change and considerably more hostile to international efforts to deal with it.

Still, leaders expressed belief that the United Nations remained the best, if not the only, place to address a problem that will require a global solution.

“We’re not going to solve the whole problem this year, but we can lock in bigger and better agreements every year,” said Christiana Figueres, the Costa Rican diplomat who took over this year as executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the body that convenes the talks. “Multilateral negotiations such as this one involve not just solving an environmental problem but actually involve the transformation of economic patterns and the economic structure we have lived with for decades.”

The annual climate change conference combines the technical complexity of arms control negotiations with the leaden pace of global trade talks. It attracts thousands of journalists, environmental campaigners and corporate executives, each looking for a story or selling a product.

The actual negotiations tend to take place behind closed doors, where progress is measured in verb tenses and punctuation changes. And nothing of significance seems to happen until the 11th hour of the final day.

This year’s conference opened with the same set of issues that the participants left on the table when the meeting in Copenhagen broke up a year ago and the same flawed document — the Copenhagen Accord — before them.

At the end of the chaotic talks in Copenhagen, participants failed to adopt the accord, a nonbinding statement of good intentions, but only “took note” of the three-page document. About half the participating countries have since agreed to “associate” themselves with the accord.

But even if all the promised emissions reductions in the accord were achieved, the world would still fall short of the action needed to meet the goal of keeping global average temperatures within two degrees Celsius of preindustrial times.

Despite a year of preliminary meetings, delegates remain far apart on the two biggest questions: how much and how quickly nations will reduce their emissions of climate-altering gases and what sort of international monitoring can be established to ensure that countries are meeting their targets. No one expects that the gaps on those issues will be significantly closed over the next two weeks in Cancún.

There has, however, been some progress on the other four major points of discussion at the talks. Those involve slowing the destruction of forests, sharing technology to produce energy in less-destructive ways, helping poorer countries adapt to the inevitable changes to the climate and building a multibillion-dollar fund to further these goals.

The goal at Cancún, according to negotiators and observers, would be a “balanced package” of progress on each of those issues and an agreement by the wealthier countries to make good on their promise to come up with $30 billion in short-term financing to help developing nations adjust to global climate disruption.

Jonathan Pershing, the deputy United States climate envoy, said Monday in Cancún that while preliminary talks this year had been hung up by disputes over substance and procedure, “We are optimistic we can work through many, if not all of these.”

He also said that the United States and China had made progress on some issues dividing them and that the United States was prepared to contribute $1.7 billion to the short-term adaptation fund, most of it new money appropriated by Congress.

What remains really difficult, and what most likely will not be resolved at Cancún, is the fate of the 13-year-old Kyoto Protocol, the global warming agreement largely set to expire at the end of 2012. The protocol — never accepted by the United States — sets different requirements for developed and developing countries. It has been used as a cudgel by large developing countries like China, India and Brazil to demand more emissions reductions by the United States and other advanced economies as a price for their own participation in any global climate regime.

China has passed the United States as the world’s largest emitter of greenhouse pollutants and has voluntarily taken large strides toward slowing the growth of its emission. But it refuses to be bound to an international agreement that does not require larger, verifiable reductions from the United States and other wealthy countries.

The United States is demanding that the protocol’s distinctions among countries be scrapped and that all nations move forward together to attack the problem of global climate change. Until that fundamental dispute is resolved, the prospects for progress are slim.

“Success here will mean finally discarding Kyoto and beginning the process of requiring major developing countries to cut emissions along with developed countries,” said Paul W. Bledsoe of the Bipartisan Policy Center in Washington, who is in Cancún and has followed climate deliberations for years. “Both substantive and political progress demand that the Kyoto stalking horse be let loose.”
