Today’s telecommunications landscape looks radically different from that of 10 years ago – yet many CSPs are still using the same hardware-based network architecture that they have always had in place. Meantime, OTTs are racing ahead in a fiercely competitive market. It’s time, then, for telcos to reach for the cloud and make a digital transformation.
The proliferation of Internet of Things devices, the coming launch of 5G, virtual technologies and artificial intelligence all signal a new era in digital telecommunications. These innovations can mean only one thing – it’s time for industry players to reinvent telecoms.
Slow and cumbersome, “waterfall” methodology for telecom solution development is on the way out. It is being replaced by a combination of DevOps with microservices, which will drive telecoms companies in a world rapidly becoming defined by automation and ever higher speeds. The theory is simple, and the practical application requires only an open mind…
The challenges and opportunities of the Internet of Things mean that CSPs need to evolve swiftly into next generation operators. Only by embracing new ways of thinking about infrastructure, service and digitization can telecoms companies hope to compete and expand in the B2B sector in this new era.
The future of telecoms belongs to those organizations which can provide digital services. But the transition from CSP to DSP is a path strewn with hurdles that you can best overcome if you know about them in advance.
Digital revolution is already influencing the way that telecoms operators think about business, networks and IT, and this evolution is set to gather pace in the near future. Find out where your focus needs to be to keep up with customer demands and become a force to be reckoned with on the market.
