Service Provider Hero

Technology, services & strategy behind the rapidly evolving service provider ecosystem

In a 5G-defined economy and society, CSPs are collectively creating the infrastructure platform, which will support a $13.2tn economic output. Will CSPS be able to retain some of the macro-economic gains and yield enough returns from its investments? Juggling consumer, enterprise, and industrial requirements, CSPs are in the process of carving a role (and a profit) in every possible 5G-supported industry: can they invest and specialize in every sector, and if not, what role will they take in the ecosystem?

“5G will reach mass market readiness in 2021”
 In a post-pandemic world, 5G is set to reach mass-market readiness and develop into hyperscale-friendly intelligent networks. Globally, 5G will reach 553m subscriptions in 2021. CSPS should monetize the first wave of large scale 5G consumer adoption by creating a compelling upselling strategy.

Consumer Services

CSPs have learned to co-operate with Tech consumer giants. But what fair share of the $1tn revenues generated by the top 10 consumer tech will they expect to share? And what is the commercial and technological contribution of CSPs to such a growing mobile and cloud-based, AI-powered growing segment?

Enterprise Network Services
"Enterprise network services revenue was estimated at $148 billion in 2020 and is forecasted to dip to $143 billion by 2026."
Network providers will continue to face tightening markets with margins under pressure. Cost compression of core network services will remain, but there are still growth opportunities in managed network services, from increase outsourcing and new, more complex projects.
Network Infrastructure
"The mobile infrastructure market alone is set to reach $44bn in 2022"
Due to rapid digitalisation, today’s communication service providers are required to manage and operate increasingly complex telecommunications infrastructures. Telco’s are also seeking to increase their footprint across mobile media delivery, edge computing and IoT.
