What Every Telecom Operator Should Know about the Cloud  

To be successful in the cloud, telecom operations must compete with established cloud service providers – both giants like AWS, Google and Microsoft and smaller regional vendors already in the market. And because telecom operators historically do not move as fast as service providers while they maintain their legacy business and customer-base, they are losing cloud customers hand over fist.

Cloud service providers are using this checklist, so you should too!
