Ericsson: Latam Insights, June 2015 - Leading the way in the Networked Society

  1. 1. JUNE 2015 Leading the way in the Networked Society LATAM INSIGHTS
  2. 2. 2 INSIGHTS: REGION LATIN AMERICA AND CARIBBEAN JUNE 2015 All industries are facing transformation, with the digitization of services and the shift from physical consumption to virtual products. In the modern, disruptive environment, businesses are turning to smarter ways of working and new collaborative models, all of which are driving demand for greater levels of connectivity and mobility. The introduction of 5G will not happen in a single, clearly visible step. 5G will, just as the generations of mobile technologies before it, evolve gradually over time, and become an essential component in realizing the Networked Society. We expect that fully commercial 5G systems will enter the market sometime around the year 2020 and that today’s LTE technology will evolve to become part of 5G. We believe that in the 5G era, operators will have one physical network infrastructure and one pool of frequency bands, supporting many separate virtualized networks (slices), each with unique characteristics for meeting the specific requirements of the 5G application it serves – for example in a utility or transport context. 5G will put substantial requirements on the radio interface, the core network, support solutions and the devices. It will require enormous technological advances. In many machine-to-machine applications, for example, 5G will require enhanced air interfaces, enhancements to the core network, as well as strengthened support systems. 5G will need to meet new performance levels. It will enable the Networked Society to realize its full potential, where everything is not only connected, but connected for a purpose.

  3. 3. 33INSIGHTS: REGION LATIN AMERICA AND CARIBBEAN JUNE 2015 ICT unlocks value and changes rules of business across industries As the Networked Society becomes a reality, ICT solutions enable cross sector collaborations, bringing value to society, industries and citizens. The digital lifestyle of urban citizens will impact energy management, travel patterns, transport modes and purchasing behaviors. The energy sector is experiencing increasing requirements for renewable energy, and changing regulations for smart grids, real time data collection and analytics. Key points > Over 70 percent of consumers believe that traffic volume maps, energy use comparison apps and water quality checkers will be mainstream by 2020 > Rapid uptake of smart meters, for example, in 2016 Estonia will be the world’s first country with 100 percent coverage > 50 percent of drivers worldwide would switch to a comparable brand to get Connected Car services > Solar energy used for the grid is expected to increase by 20 percent This year: > More people will watch streamed on-demand video than broadcastTV on a weekly basis > Video will generate half of mobile data traffic > LTE subscriptions growth will exceed 80 percent, exceeding 800 million > World mobile broadband coverage will be above 70 percent KEY market TRENDS 2015 ANSFORMING INDUSTRIES TR New media services enable digital lifestyles and personalization On-demand video consumption will continue to grow rapidly in 2015, driven by the increasing availability of IP-delivered TV services. New and personalized TV services will expand due to consumers’ willingness to pay and the availability of smart recognition capabilities. Communication over video is growing primarily in the younger segments as well as in the enterprise segments for professional use. Key points > In 2015, 50 percent will agree it is very important to have personalized on-demand content > Smartphone video viewing will increase by >30 percent, comparable to 2012 figures, reaching 6 hours per week > More than 50 percent of allYouTube consumption will occur on mobile devices PERSONALIZED MEDIA LIFESTYLE Security top-of-mind as efficiency and new services drive cloud deployment Cloud and network functions virtualization (NFV) adoption is rising; however concerns about security and governance are limiting factors to fully embracing cloud technology. IT systems continue to increase in complexity. Operators and enterprises are exploring technologies that ease complexity while ensuring security. Increasingly, organizations are beginning to build infrastructure and applications that are cloud-optimized and software-defined. Key points > Over 50 percent of operators expect to have their first virtualized network functions deployed in a live commercial network in the next 12-24 months > 74 percent of enterprises are concerned about cloud security and governance > By 2015, the spending on cloud services is expected to grow by 20 percent and large data centers will account for more than 25 percent of all data hardware CLOUD EVOLUTION DATA MONETIZATION Successful data monetization driven by innovative strategies An increasing set of operators, known as ‘Frontrunners’*, are successfully converting strong global data growth into profitable revenue growth. Frontrunners achieve continued success by securing innovation, tailoring data offerings and focusing on user experience and superior network performance. Financially, these Frontrunners grew their revenues faster than competition at an average rate of 13 percent compared to 3 percent (2009-2014). Key points > Data traffic will grow up to 8 times by 2020, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 40 percent > In 2015, data traffic for smartphones, tables and laptops will increase by 50-60 percent from 2014 > The number of Frontrunners is predicted to increase in 2015 from 20 to 30 operators > Frontrunners are projected to continue to have service revenue growth – reaching more than 10 percent expected 2015 year-on-year for the group *Frontrunners are defined as (equal or more than): 40% smartphone penetration, 4% revenue growth YoY, 10% market share > One-third of all Frontrunners are in the Americas Data consumption redefines need for app coverage and performance In 2015, half of all subscribers will have a smartphone and expect access to content, services and data-intensive apps anywhere, anytime. Enterprises are rapidly adopting cloud-based solutions and services, thus increasing the demand for bandwidth and app coverage.The need for bandwidth-intensive apps in urban areas makes indoor and small cell coverage a vital high growth area this year. Key points > Mobile data traffic will grow by more than 50 percent during 2015. Video will account for half of total traffic > For good quality performance, 2 Mbps speed is required while 1 Mbps is sufficient. In 2015, the probability of experiencing a mobile network throughput of at least 1 Mbps will reach 80 percent globally > LTE subscriptions worldwide expected to grow >80 percent, with rapid uptake in emerging markets SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE > Network quality is a key differentiator that operators can explore in Latin America as many users are dissatisfied and investments in the network improve financial returns, as shown by our Value of Performance study

  5. 5. INSIGHTS: REGION LATIN AMERICA AND CARIBBEAN JUNE 2015 5 liberation from location A report from Ericsson ConsumerLab shows that the boundaries between work and personal life, and between being at home and outdoors are blurring in the way consumers use their mobile devices. People tend to switch screens (devices) to access services and content across different locations, regardless of time and place. Communication is a quintessential need. We meet it by being accessible to our friends, family and extended community in person and more often nowadays, online. Being able to make decisions on-the-go using relevant content that is accessible anytime, anywhere has assumed paramount importance among consumers. This Ericsson ConsumerLab Latin America study highlights the connectivity expectations of consumers as they go In general, smartphones are becoming as popular as PCs in frequency of internet usage, although there is preference for smartphones in Mexico and PCs in Uruguay: about their lives. The data presented in this report was gathered from a total of 9,812 face-to-face interviews and 1,027 online interviews conducted in 2014 across six countries in Latin America: Argentina, Bolivia, Uruguay, Brazil, El Salvador and Mexico. Interviews were conducted with consumers aged 15–69 years old. Overall, the data represents 189 million people living in Latin America. Calls, messages and music are the most popular activities on mobile phones/smartphones, while social networking, internet browsing and on-line shopping are the top activities on PCs. Tablets are yet to pick up, but they are widely used for watching video content.

The Internet of Things (IoT) will not only raise our quality of life, but above all, is a great business opportunity. IoT will revolutionize our lives and business models. When smart products are connected, we can have a connected life that opens doors to new business opportunities and disruptive ideas involving things yet to be named, and markets yet to be discovered. IoT will bring increased automation to everything that is connected through the internet. We are going from stovepipe solutions to a connected life. For instance, cars that communicate with each other and with other elements on the road can save lives and solve traffic congestion problems; a coffee machine and a car heater connected to your morning alarm can make life smoother. To capture evolving business opportunities, it’s important to understand all the dimensions. And this is happening right now. In a few years, we will look back on all this and say, “that was when it all started.” Ericsson has brought together thought leaders to weigh in the Internet of Things ecosystem. So take a look into the future – a future that is already here! internet of things Scan the QR code to learn more about business opportunities in the Internet of Things Growth Codes 2.0 Scan the QR code to learn more about successful operator strategies With voice revenues under pressure and mobile data use soaring, operators have been forced to evolve both their networks and their business models. Some have been more successful than others—we call these operators “Frontrunners.” Between 2010 and 2014, Frontrunners enjoyed a 9.6% CAGR, while competitors in their markets achieved only 2.7%. To understand how these Frontrunners have consistently outpaced the competition, Ericsson, in collaboration with EY, embarked on an study where six common traits—which we call the Growth Codes—were defined: Gap Minding, Streetwise Metrics, Showcasing, Unboxing, Ecosystematic and Co-Partnering. While the Frontrunners make use of all the Growth Codes, they tend to place a larger focus on a subset of these depending on the growth strategy they apply. In Growth Codes 2.0, we have investigated Frontrunners’ differentiation, customer, market and product scope, as well as their approaches to technology and operations, going deeper into their own competitive strategies to uncover three different paths to achieve profitable growth: Three strategies to profitable growth Differentiate on high-performing networks and strong brand preference Differentiate on quick adaptation to market conditions Differentiate on being first to market with uniquely designed offerings Quality-led progression Market-led adaptation Offering-led transformation EricssonLatinAmerica EricssonBR EricssonLatam EricssonBrazil @EricssonLatam @EricssonBR @EricssonCarib EricssonLatinAmerica EricssonLatinAmerica EricssonLatinAmerica
