The 'state of the possible' in telecoms is a long way ahead the 'state of the art'. The new science of network performance enables a large leap in customer experience and cost. However, the perception among operators is that only relatively small, incremental improvements are possible.
This presentation explores the reasons for this 'perception gap' between what is seen to be possible, and what actually is. It draws on our work at senior levels for tier 1 operators, as well as examples from outside the telecoms industry.
Overcoming this gap opens the possibility to disruptive innovation. Who will seize the opportunity? Incumbents, challengers or new entrants?
