With the world getting smaller and flatter day by day, Telecommunications has emerged as one of the strongest driving forces and a rapidly growing industry across the world, with a unique set of business requirements and challenges much larger in scale and complexity as compared to traditional businesses.
Some of the key characteristics marking the Telecom industry of today across the world are:
- Ever-increasing demand leading to astronomical growth in customer base in short time spans and across large geographical spreads
- Fast maturing customer demands and needs, thereby rapidly maturing product life cycles
- Rapid product and service launches in order to outdo competition
- Minimal and easy-to-break entry barriers for new products and services within the industry
- High reliance on infrastructure, network resources and capital expenditure for expansion and for fuelling growth
- High customer churn, leading to reduced revenue potential per customer
