Communications Service Providers (CSPs) and enterprises, across the globe, are fast realizing that established methodologies to deploy and manage networks are inadequate to meet the demands of the new-age customer.
This “awakening” is driven by several factors, including the emergence of new technologies such as 5G, which demand an extremely agile, flexible, and programmable network. The upcoming 5G technology is also driving the convergence of fixed and wireless networks, which is leading to an emergence of multipurpose network core and backhaul technologies.
Besides, CSPs are looking to evolve into Digital Service Providers (DSPs) to be better positioned to address customer demands. Further, CSPs are under pressure to bring down the cost of network management while enhancing efficiency.
These changing business dynamics imply a strong need to rethink conventional network deployment and management strategies.
Outsourcing Network Management
Redesigning network architecture also implies that there is an increased demand to outsource network management processes to specialists who can enable CSPs and enterprises to align the network performance with their business objectives.
Instead of outsourcing to multiple vendors, experts recommend outsourcing to a single, large partner for better management of the network and also of smaller vendors. Long-term contracts to such a partner will also help in enhancing the cost-efficiency of network management.
Outsourcing also helps the CSPs in managing rapid technology changes which usually require investment in design, engineering, management, and transformation of the networks. Strategic outsourcing can go a long way in enabling CSPs to leverage the latest technologies and maintain a competitive edge.
Typically, such a partner comes with years of experience in managing the entire chain from network concept to manufacturing, planning, engineering, and management to meet this demand.
