Challenges faced by the IT and Telecom Sector and Solution proposed by CenterServ

As with every other industry, telecommunications is facing multiple challenges. The innovation in technology has revolutionized every industry. And, the telecom industry is expected to quickly adapt these changes to provide the required innovation to that industry. A notable example is OTT or over-the-top services. For the extra bandwidth provided for these OTT services, telecom operators are not earning any extra income. Transforming the technology from voice-centric solutions to data-driven solutions is a challenge.

To compete with OTT players, telecom operators are offering value added services such as HD video conferencing and mobile office solutions. Faster time to market these solutions is a key requirement. With data-driven solutions in great demand, telco providers have to deliver highly scalable resources that can handle data-hungry applications. With innovation happening at a rapid pace, telecom organizations have to adapt to these changes quickly. At the same time, they have to optimize resources to give space for all the innovation.

To optimize costs, telecom operations are moving towards new technologies such as Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). The cloud compliments this transformation with the software defined network solutions. By virtualizing proprietary solutions on the hardware stack, telecom companies eliminate the need to purchase individual pieces of hardware.

Tap new opportunities

The cloud brings new opportunities to every industry. Telecommunications is not excluded. For instance, cloud-based managed services market is in great demand in recent times. Being uniquely positioned, telecom providers can quickly capitalize on this opportunity. Another chance is to provide end-to-end solutions in the cloud value chain.
