Innovation Quest for Telecom Operators

The heat is on!

The topic of innovation is not new to telecom companies per se. They have been among the first to introduce corporate accelerators, launch corporate venture capital arms, and introduce a variety of corresponding managerial roles. However, realizing value from these innovation efforts have proved elusive. Today, professional investors shy away from start-ups whose business models build on telco collaboration, focusing instead on those disrupting the slow-moving giants. [...]

Premium Sports Broadcasting

The silver bullet to win the broadband game?

Traditional pay-TV operators across Europe compete fiercely for exclusivity of premium sports broadcasting rights.

Content is gaining weight in the consumer buying decision for bundles and operators cannot ignore this in order to maximize the share of connected households of new built super-fast broadband networks. However, the acquisition of sport broadcasting rights has become very expensive, resulting in squeezed margins and in potential arbitrage versus network investments. Is the acquisition of sport broadcasting rights a sound long-term strategy for telecom operators? [...]

The OTT conundrum for MENA telecoms

In this Arthur D. Little regional telecom report we aim to provide a nuanced view of the growth patterns within the MENA region, as well as deconstruct the growth to its underlying reasons in four key markets. An important focus area is the threat of core revenue disruption by over-the top (OTT) players in messaging, voice and video. On the surface, there exists a deceptive view of homogeneity for the South Asia, Middle East and North Africa region, and for especially the subregions of Middle East and North Africa (MENA), such that these markets appear very similar. In reality, the local information and communication technology (ICT) markets are quite varied. Our analysis and discussions with local decision-makers present several interrelated conclusions. [...]
