Successful deals in infrastructure partnership in many markets are evidence of a new business reality. Market players see significant economic benefits from radio access network sharing.

FTTH: Double Squeeze of Incumbents - Forced to Partner?

High-Speed Cable and FTTB/H Networks Deployed by Alt-nets and Utilities Put EU Incumbents Into a Double Squeeze

This paper should be a wakeup call to EU governments and regulators. For ten years, discussions about how to regulate NGA (next generation access) have been ongoing.

How Telecom Operators Can Extract More Value from Their Customer Goldmine

Operators now need to implement new techniques and transform their business models around customer value. By doing so, they can generate two to five points of incremental margin and create long-term competitive advantage. [...]

New business models in the electricity market of the future for telcos

Existing electricity grids are not capable of satisfying the increasing demand for a reliable electricity supply in the long run. The growing proportion of decentralised electricity generation based on renewables is making electricity transport and distribution significantly more complex, yet the existing electricity network is reaching its capacity and capability limits. A “smart grid” will deliver intelligent and highly automated grid maintenance and management. New business models and emerging players will change the rules of the game! [...]

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. [...]
