The telecoms sector is undergoing a quiet revolution from narrowband to broadband communications, from fixed to wireless connectivity and with the emergence of new smart devices to connect people and objects to the Internet.
Tracking these changing industry dynamics can be challenging. New players are emerging, established companies are transitioning and new ecosystems are emerging. Mature markets are the first to witness this shift from old telecoms business models to new Internet-based economics, but many of the lessons that can be learned about the transformational power of telecoms are being learned in growth markets in the southern hemisphere.
The challenge for governments and regulators is to adopt policies and strategies flexible enough to enable their economies to benefit from these new services while at the same time ensuring the widespread deployment of infrastructure to support them. Meanwhile, financial institutions need robust data, forecasts and strategic insight to ensure that they understand what impact these profound changes will have on the companies and markets that they serve.
We help banks, regulators and government to:
- Gain access to detailed operational and financial metrics of operators, service providers and vendors in every country worldwide in an interactive, flexible database
- Learn from best practice in technology deployment, new service launches, business models, efficiency gains and marketing and retail strategies through case studies and strategic analysis
- Secure detailed insight and understanding into next-generation network technologies
- Benchmark the performance of their companies and countries with others in every other part of the world
- Understand when new devices and services will become available, what their impact will be and what policies are needed to foster their growth
- Gain an understanding of new services that are becoming available over the Internet and what impact they will have on existing firms and business models
- Forecast the growth in terms of the usage and revenues of different telecommunications and entertainment services.
