Telecoms are Launching Massive Programs to Transform Network Infrastructure for an On-Demand World

Change or die. Major telecoms face growing pressure from both consumers and competitors to transform the backbone of their networks. Data consumption is skyrocketing thanks to ubiquitous mobile devices, video streaming and the onset of the internet of things (IoT), while at the same time new low-cost wireless startups are challenging the viability of the sector's long-dominant business models. Competition is fierce—and customers expect affordable, unlimited data plans. In response, telecoms like AT&T, Vodafone and SK Telecom are embracing the cloud and automation. They're launching massive multiyear transformation programs to jettison legacy, hardware-based network infrastructure and migrate to software- and cloud-based systems.
