New age, new needs, new approaches
As the calendar turns to the second decade of the 21st century we outline a new purpose, strategy and business models for the telecoms industry. We first described ‘The Coordination Age’, our vision of the market context, in our report The Coordination Age: A third age of telecoms in 2018.
The Coordination Age arises from the convergence of:
- Global and near universal demands from businesses, governments and consumers for greater resource efficiency, availability and conservation, and
- Technological advances that will allow near their real-time management.
