With the days of double-digit revenue growth long gone, Tier 1 network equipment providers (NEPs) are scrambling to deliver new software, services and IT solutions to maintain at least low-single-digit revenue growth. Growth in core telecom network equipment businesses slowed to a 3.2% CAGR over the last four years and is unlikely to rebound. The key reason is that NEPs’ chief customers — communication service providers — are shifting spending to lower overall spend on capex and opex and migrating capex spend from hardware to software and services.
On Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2014, TBR’s Networking & Mobility Practice will present a webinar discussing how Tier 1 NEPs’ positioning will evolve over the next five years. The webinar will assess how diversification into IT and the introduction of SDN and NFV will impact business models and revenues and how NEPs plan to adjust to stay relevant as their industry undergoes transformational changes.
Analyst Chris Antlitz will share his perspective on the latest trends and provide webinar attendees with additional insight into vendor performance and the future of NEPs. An audience Q&A will follow the presentation.
