Explore the new value chain


Communication service providers (CSPs) are going digital. As they shift from CSP to Digital Service Provider and seek to become more agile their approach to sourcing and relationship with traditional vendors is changing. Their priority is to deliver faster, all-IP, cloud-driven services with vendor and hardware agnostic infrastructure.

The challenge for network vendors is navigating a new and rapidly evolving value chain as new competitors enter the previously walled garden of the telecoms market. At the same time technologies such as 5G, FFTs, GPON, G.Fast, and Mobile Edge Computing present new opportunities.
