“Telco cloud will be characterised by ecosystems and partnerships.”

In a previous report, we looked at how CSPs have an opportunity from distributed cloud-native networks, where the edge is everywhere. We explored what the new telco edge looks like and what the future cloud network needs to look like to drive revenue for telcos.

In this follow-on report, we look at the key characteristics that vendors and suppliers must deliver for a successful Telco Cloud. We look at what needs to be in place to allow all types of CSP to benefit from cloud-native networks and the key characteristics of vendor solutions that are needed to meet this.

This report is part of a set – with a separate blueprint for operators detailed here.

This Research Note is published within our Distributed Cloud Infrastructure Management and Operator Strategy & Vision research modules, and is available free to subscribers of those modules, via their Appledore Digital Locker.
