Triple-play, Quad-play and now Penta-Play?


We know that Triple-play consists of:
  • Phone/Voice (based on VoIP),
  • Internet and
  • Television (generally IPTV)

and Quad-play also includes:

  • Mobile

So now when i hear people mentioning Penta-play, i cant think of what is this 5th thing in Penta-play? They dont seem to mention anything. Does anyone know?

The fifth component is security and is also commonly referred to as Quintuple-Play
