leave a comment »

By J Arnold & Associates

For many, “Telecom 2.0” embodies the future of telephony, and with that comes a new world of opportunity for service providers who are both willing and able to adapt. In fact, we see the opportunity is far greater than traditional telephony, as Telecom 2.0 extends to the broader sphere of IP communications and Web-based services. Service providers are currently well positioned for success by virtue of having large scale, efficient networks as well as established subscriber bases, but need to broaden their core competencies to become leaders in the Telecom 2.0 arena. This position paper seeks to define Telecom 2.0 in this wider context, and to analyze the underlying trends that are setting the stage for this opportunity. These t rends and their implications are analyzed from the service provider perspective, resulting in the high light of a core set of competencies that will differentiate operators from other players in the ecosystem. We see these competencies as the fundamental building blocks that operators can use to leverage their existing network infrastructure successfully into the emerging world of Telecom 2.0 services and applications. To highl ight this advantage, a review of Telecom 2.0 strateg ies is presented, along with how they can be supported by these competencies.
