KEY MARKET DYNAMICS
• The time of 5G has arrived: We can expect the launch of 5G services in most developed countries by 2020. 5G will enable high-speed internet services that will be instrumental for IoT, content delivery, and other data transfers. Verizon has already started 5G commercial services in four US cities.
• Cost optimization is the new priority: Across the globe, telecom operators are bleeding out due to falling revenue and climbing investment costs required to build next-generation infrastructure. They are seeking cost optimizations by automating some of the core telecom processes.
• Content is the new king: In the world of Amazon and Netflix, content providers are snagging cable customers at a fast clip. Telecom service providers are also trying to enter this lucrative space. We have observed several recent acquisitions; two notable ones are Comcast’s acquisition of NBC and AT&T’s purchase of DirecTV. We expect this trend to continue and we will see more partnerships in this area.
• Influence of digital technologies on telecom engineering: Emerging areas, particularly digital technologies, are major influential factors for telecom engineering services. The application of artificial intelligence, cloud, analytics, automation, and IoT is increasing in different areas of the telecom engineering value chain.
• Change in solution offerings: The application of software engineering is increasing steadily for telecom engineering offerings. Telecom clients are moving from customer product development to open source projects, SDx, and XaaS models. This has triggered a major shift in solution offerings for telecom engineering service providers.
