Subject:

 

Industry Convergence, Interconnection, Markets, Services, Technology

 

Full Paper          Executive Summary

 

Overview:

Part of a series on policies associated with industry convergence, The Information Studio provides a long-term framework to shift policy focus toward how to deliver services to customers in simple, easy to use packages.  This framework shifts from traditional industries with separate services toward industry and network convergence.  The metaphor of an information studio allows a company to provide one or more of four components: content, platforms, networks and customer appliances.  The Information Studio  indicates four basic types of interconnection that occur between these components.  This framework allows for a competitive market with both large and small companies.
