This update to our ‘NFV Deployment Tracker’ series focuses on North America, alongside additional European data. 2016/7 has seen the rise of SD-WAN, enabling smaller operators to compete in the WAN market with NFV leaders AT&T, Verizon, Masergy, CenturyLink, etc. By contrast, fewer consumer use cases for NFV have yet been established.
STL Partners are undertaking research with telecoms operators worldwide to understand the value opportunity for AI across their businesses. Let us know how your organisation is approaching AI and where you think the real value lies. In return, we’ll show you how you compare with others in the industry.
NFV/SDN is one factor driving radical change in telco business models. This report explores the three archetypal telco NFV/SDN implementation strategies that we’ve found in the market, and the different telco business models each will result in.
Many telecoms operators see network function virtualisation (NFV) as a core driver of their transformation into more agile and flexible organisations. However, there is less consensus across the industry on the best way to structure virtualisation programmes to achieve this goal.
Telcos have a business imperative to reduce costs and improve customer experience in order to survive, and they believe AI will be instrumental in achieving this. This is a sample report from the presentations at our Singapore Senior Executive Strategy Seminar, looking at how telcos are prioritising AI investments and including two case studies from Telenor and Vodafone.
Telcos have three options in dealing with the disruptive business models of the Internet giants: protect their core business (piper), compete head-on, or co-opetition. All options require operators to digitalise their operations. This sample report looks at how Telkom Indonesia is managing the transformation of its business to become more agile and deliver best-in-class customer experience.
Most telecoms operators agree on the need to secure new value from IoT, but they don’t all agree on how. This sample report gives a snapshot of presentations from our Singapore Senior Executive Strategy Seminar, and discussions among attendees from 12 major regional operators and industry organisations on how to move beyond connectivity in IoT.
Multinational operators have not been effectively harnessing their size and cross-country footprint. To create attractive economies of scale, they need to adopt a Telco Cloud model. Through a more common infrastructure and an innovation model which is sensibly calibrated across OpCos, large telcos will become more efficient and innovative.
