Telecom Operators are gearing up investments to upgrade the core network and in IMS and VNF technologies, to ensure they are fit for purpose in an increasingly data rich world.
We interviewed over 40 heads of technology and engineering at a diverse range of telecoms service providers across the globe to see how they are using IP Multimedia Sub-systems (IMS) and Virtualised Network Functions (VNF) to drive higher revenues and become more efficient in a market being squeezed by increasing demand and falling prices.
Major capital investment in preparation for 5G roll-out is expected to take off in 2019/2020. For many telecoms companies capex spend will tail off ahead of this, giving them the perfect opportunity to refocus their investment to ensure they can take advantage of next generation network technology.
Telecoms companies are using IMS and VNF together to reduce costs and increase revenues but operators across the globe are at different levels of transition
What is holding them back from implementing both solutions right now?
By 2020, Telecom networks will be completely different from today. Operators will have entered in a new infrastructure era centred on software-defined networks. This will affect the types of suppliers you engage and the staff you hire.
