2015 is almost a wrap. With the year coming to a quick conclusion, we are looking back at the best resources of 2015. Here is our top five of 2015:
1. What Every Telecom Operator Should Know about the Cloud
Declining revenues, economic challenges, technology transformation and price competition are all contributors to the rapidly changing telecom industry alongside the evolving requirements of customers. As telecom operators look to transform to overcome these challenges, the cloud has become ever more important.
If you are a telco in the cloud space or trying to get in it and make a big difference quick, here are three tools you need in your arsenal.
Just last week, Vodafone Ireland announced its €7M investment in the development of new datacenter services for enterprise and public sector customers according to the Irish Times. The group plans to offer new services including co-location, managed hosting, private cloud and infrastructure as a service (IaaS).
Orchestration is key for telcos to quickly and easily increase the variety and number of products they offer. It also keeps them focused on what they do best: selling solutions wrapped with value-added services instead of commodity infrastructure.
“We have seen a lot of telcos rush into cloud, but the infrastructure space is still being dominated by commodity players,” such as Amazon Web Services LLC says GoGrid CEO John Keagy in a LightReading article. After investing tens of millions of dollars creating cloud service platforms, telecom operators need to be able to give their sales teams solid products to sell and “that has been a problem for most of the telcos,” he adds.
