Telco Investment Challenges
more As the need to deploy superfast systems becomes apparent, telcos are signing more and more cooperation agreements (sharing, pooling, outsourcing) and seeking out new financing models.

Based on an analysis of the global marketplace and its players (23 countries, 22 telcos profiled), this report examines fixed and mobile network CAPEX from 2008 to 2013, and analyses why the pace of investment picked up in 2013.
Telco Cloud
Market report
more This report provides an in-depth exploration of telecom carriers' positioning and strategies in the enterprise cloud computing market. It identifies the impediments and assets that telcos have in establishing a solid and lasting foothold in the different cloud segments: IaaS, PaaS and SaaS.
The report also delivers an analysis of how telcos and the market's dominant players are positioned in each cloud segment and supplies estimates of telcos' share of the cloud computing market, along with revenue projections for the next five years.
SDN and NFV in a telco world
Market report
more This report addresses the standardisation efforts, it explores telco and equipment suppliers' positioning on new networking architecture concepts.

It analyses the strategies and degree of involvement of the ecosystem's various stakeholders and provides SDN/NFV market figures, particularly from the telco perspective
Telco CDN
Market report
more This report explores telecom carriers' strategies with respect to content delivery networks (CDN). It analyses the impact of telcos' arrival into the CDN value chain, especially with respect to pure-player CDN companies and equipment suppliers. It concludes with an analysis of the market that telcos can expect to capture over the long term, especially in the realm of mobile solutions which today are few and far between.
Big Data for Telcos
Market report
more This report is dedicated to the analysis of Big Data opportunities for telecom operators: - What applications can be developed with telcos data? - What kind of new revenues can be generated? - What cost savings can be done thanks to Big Data techniques? Our study provides business cases for each application of analytics that can be done by telcos, for internal and external purposes. Specific figures are provided to estimate the financial benefits of each big data application on the global telecom services market and the report especially ranks the most valuable opportunities for telcos.
Future Network Architecture
