1G to 5G Wireless Technology Evolution in Term of Services and Performance

As you know, the big three telco operators in Indonesia have already implemented 4G services last year in some big cities, but last Thursday I received CommunicAsia 2015 invitation and one of interesting topics which will be presented in there is 5G Technology. What is 5G Technology?

According to white paper "Understanding 5G: Perspectives on future technological advancements in mobile" by GSM Intelligence which has released on December 2014 stated that discussion around 5G falls broadly into two schools of thought: a service-led view which sees 5G as a consolidation of 2G, 3G, 4G, Wi-fi and other innovations providing far greater coverage and always-on reliability; and a second view driven by a step change in data speed and order of magnitude reduction in end-to-end latency.

YouTube Subscriptions - New Revenue Stream for YouTube Partners

As a YouTube Partner, I got notification from Google that YouTube will release the new revenue stream "Subscriptions" beside "Advertising" business model. It's mean that YouTube will offer consumers the choice to pay for an “ads-free” version of YouTube for a monthly fee. It will be started in June 15, 2015.

Here is part of new YouTube Partner Program Terms: "YouTube will pay you 55% of the total net revenues recognized by YouTube from subscription fees that are attributable to the monthly views or watchtime of your Content as a percentage of the monthly views or watchtime of all or a subset of participating content in the relevant subscription offering (as determined by YouTube). If your Content is included in and viewed by a user in multiple subscription offerings, YouTube will pay you based on the subscription offering with the highest amount of net revenues recognized by YouTube, as calculated by YouTube."

UPoint Menguasai Market DCB Direct Carrier Billing di Indonesia

Seperti yang telah saya posting sebelumnya, bahwa bisnis content digital terutama games sangat menjanjikan, berdasarkan data dari newzoo, market game di Indonesia mencapai 146 juta USD atau dengan kurs saat ini sekitar 1,9 trilyun rupiah. Content Games sendiri menyumbang sekitar 80% dari market digital content. Serta dengan CAGR mencapai 39%, membuat bisnis ini sangat menarik.

Payment dari digital content dapat menggunakan voucher, kartu kredit dan potong pulsa. Berdasarkan data benchmark di berbagai negara, pembayaran menggunakan potong pulsa atau lebih dikenal dengan sebutan Direct Carrier Billing (DCB) sangat diminati oleh pengguna, karena lebih simple dan aman, serta didukung oleh penetration pengguna telco yang sangat tinggi, di Indonesia saja penetrationnya sudah lebih dari 100 persen.
