Telecom Convergence - Thematic Research
|出版日||ページ情報||英文 38 Pages
In an age of increasingly connected living, working and playing, telecom operators are re-positioning themselves from commoditized conduits of connectivity to all-round, end-to-end and value-added digital service providers. Telecom convergence is the combination of a variety of different carrier-provisioned services within integrated solutions and portfolios, facilitated by a variety of interconnected underlying access methods. These integrated telco propositions, both established and emerging, span the six categories represented in the telecom convergence services stack: fixed-mobile bundles; TV and content; smart home; smart mobility; health and wellness; and digital commerce. Embracing, or at the very least bracing for, convergence is absolutely critical to carrier business survival in the longer term, and the operators that are choosing to act decisively now will be the ones shaping the market, and the ones most likely to thrive.
The carriers best placed to take advantage of the telecom convergence opportunity are those that own and operate their own assets supporting both fixed and mobile connectivity and associated services. More importantly, those that are already delving into multiple segments of the services stack, and combining divergent products and services into integrated portfolio propositions, are those that are poised to leverage their telecom convergence capabilities and gain traction earlier than their peers.
