An emerging new ecosystem

Digitalisation and digital transformation is reshaping the telecom industry landscape. Virtualisation and the advent of cloud-based technologies has led to a paradigm shift in the way telecom services and networks are being deployed. Increasing pressure is being placed on existing infrastructure as a result of the demand for cloud and the proliferation of new services and disruptive technologies. Competitive boundaries are shifting with increasing pressure from OTT, cloud and content providers. The continuing need to invest and innovate to upgrade existing networks for the future and build new networks in under-connected regions is essential if the ultimate goal of achieving global connectivity and enabling high quality internet access for all is to be realised.

This cannot be achieved by one type of organisation alone. A new telco ecosystem has emerged:

  • web-scale and cloud providers have specific requirements based on scale and service delivery;
  • the subsea and backbone network market is changing and new financing and infrastructure models emerging with new forms of investment models
  • data centre requirements continue to grow with an increased focus on edge computing to meet the anticipated proliferation of IoT devices
  • the future of content delivery is at the forefront of the agenda and content and OTT providers are looking for new partnership opportunities to deliver services
  • how the industry can leverage new technologies such as blockchain, automation and AI is critical
  • carriers and service providers need to redefine their market positions, evaluate their business processes and systems, transform and rebuild their business models and create new revenue streams if they are to play a significant role within this new ecosystem.
