More than ever before, network operators are being forced to focus on maximising profits and reducing costs. Facing pressure from rising competition levels in a recently liberalised market, it is crucial to accelerate the time to market of new technologies and services, and attract new customers. As operators investigate ways to reduce both opex and capex, and speed-up time to market, managed services and outsourcing are becoming more and more popular.

Operators are beginning to identify their core business activities and select the operations they can comfortably hand-over to third parties. By doing this operators will not only realise cost savings but also benefit from the technical expertise of their managed services provider, reduce time to market of new services and create a more efficient business operation.

By taking a more customer-centric approach, focussing on combating churn and ensuring they can attract higher-paying subscribers, the modern telecoms operator will succeed in today’s highly competitive market. With the operator free to focus on the brand, not the technology, a managed services approach will increase revenues as well as reduce costs.

However, identifying the correct functions to outsource, selecting the optimum partners and managing the partnerships will raise their own challenges. Managed Services for Developing Markets will guide operators through every aspect of the managed services process focussing on the more challenging and uncertain areas.
