Cost Reduction in the Telecom Industry

Why operators need to act now to escape from the low-profit spiral

The telecoms industry in Europe and the US is at risk of becoming a low profit business. If the current trend cannot be reversed, industry margins are at risk of dropping from the current figure of 35 - 40 per cent to 15 per cent within 5 years. Cost management has to become an inherent core competence for wireless and wireline operators. Significant cost reductions are only possible with substantial changes in the business/operating model. New pressures will mean a change in mind-set and the ability to ‘think outside the box’. Arthur D. Little has successfully managed this process with many operators. [...]

Open Standards for IPTV Set-Top Boxes

What an Open Standard Could Do for the Success of IPTV

The global IPTV industry has experienced impressive growth, but penetration levels are still modest. To spur further development and to avoid sub-optimisation based on multiple proprietary systems, a common standard will be increasingly important. Since no single proprietary standard for IPTV STBs is likely to emerge, influential players should cooperate to establish a widely supported open standard. [...]

Global M-Payment Report Update – 2009

M-payments surging ahead: distinct opportunities in developed and emerging markets

In the last five years, markets with mobile payment offers have matured with a variety of players entering the industry value chain and new services being launched. Initially, there was a race to enter the market and a strong rivalry between different technological propositions that would facilitate mobile transaction channels. Today, we observe that, in many national markets, only one or two dominant mobile payment platforms have prevailed, and key issues now being addressed include cross border interoperability and standardisation. Despite the financial crisis, Arthur D. Little expects m-payments to grow globally at 68% p.a. and to reach a transaction volume of almost USD 250 billion by 2012, while there will be distinct growth opportunities in developed and emerging markets. Arthur D. Little’s new global m-payment report provides insights into the current stages of the m-payment market development in different countries and regions, and draws conclusions for relevant value chain players. If you are interested in the full report, please contact Dr. Karim Taga or Gregory Oswald [...]
