Virtualization & LTE Will Drive Telecom Changes in 2015, Heavy Reading Finds
NEW YORK -- This year is expected to be a year of great market evolution across most telecom sectors, specifically in virtualization and Long Term Evolution (LTE), opening up new roads to profitability, increased revenues and reduced costs, according to the latest report from Heavy Reading Insider (www.heavyreading.com/insider), a subscription research service from Heavy Reading (www.heavyreading.com).
Hot Market Sectors to Watch in 2015 identifies 10 "hot areas" for 2015, highlights interesting things that happened in 2014, explains why we think the market sector is likely to sizzle this year, how warm the temperature will get and (in chart form) how the sector can be expected to impact on carriers, service providers and vendors. Each section also provides some pointers for specific things to look out for in 2015.
"2014 was in fact a highly creative and disruptive year for telecom," says Danny Dicks, contributing analyst with Heavy Reading Insider and author of the report. "Big changes are being seen in nearly every aspect of the telecom technology supply chain; these changes will continue into 2015, and we expect a year of significant market evolution."
It could be argued that the industry is at a turning point – it has been struggling to find a way forward for some time, with service revenue growth slowing and operating costs rising, Dicks says. "The market might just be on the cusp of finding a set of solutions that will enable communications service providers to plot a profitable path well into the future," he continues. "This coming year may be pivotal in that journey."
