  2. 2. WCIR Series: HIGHLIGHTS: As the Bar Rises for Telecom Equipment Innovation, New Approaches Emerge The huge demand for telecom services worldwide has galvanized innovators, while also raising the bar on several fronts As innovation in wireless and broadband technologies aims to increase capacity and service efficiencies, telecom equipment vendors — like makers of network infrastructure equipment and mobile devices — must also deliver higher-end smartphones and spectral efficiency 2 © 2013 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM
  3. 3. Innovation beyond Technology Boost co-creation and distributed partnership models to share risks and cut time to market, says Jeffrey Heenan-Jalil, Vice President and Global Head for Advanced Technologies at Wipro Limited  Telecom Equipment Vendor’s (TEV’s) must expand their focus to business innovation, which would then extend to exploring new markets, processes and business models.  New processes, such as outsourcing non-core activities, could help TEVs better understand ways to optimize their operations.  Innovation around business models might entail “leveraging partner ecosystems to share uncertainty risks and innovation costs, create relevant talent pools, and reduce time to market  Several new entrants are driving growth. These new and smaller firms are producing a fair amount of innovation around telecom equipment Innovate or perish, says Gerald R.Faulhaber, Wharton emeritus professor of business economics and public policy 3 © 2013 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM
  4. 4. Target Areas for TEV Innovation HANDSETS: Smartphones and Tablets TEVs have focused mostly on basic issues; such as the size of keyboards and screens. Merging handhelds , tablets & small PC’s That is a real area for innovation 4 APPLICATIONS It is the number of applications that handheld devices can support. Apple’s iStore is game changer that opened up the markets for innovation © 2013 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM OPERATING SYSTEMS Given the limitations of handheld devices, it falls to the app developers to come up with great ways to do all this stuff, such as new ways to input to the screen so that you are not limited to anything
  5. 5. Need for Spectral Efficiency  Telecom carriers will have to enable switching between cell phone spectrum and Wi-Fi frequencies, and implement advanced technologies like 4G networks.  Deploying clusters of small cells in indoor areas like train stations and airports, mobile operators can handle larger traffic volumes than by distant macro cell towers.  Equipment innovation is a way to help mobile operators ensure real time responses to the insights data analytics produce. It also extends the life cycles of existing products and features  TEVs also have to serve emerging markets like India and Africa, which have rapidly growing mobile user populations  More collaboration between operators, equipment vendors and user communities leads to increased innovation budgets, lower costs and reaches markets sooner 5 © 2013 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM
  6. 6. Conclusion The telecommunications industry is a “hyper competitive market. The mantra is ‘innovate or die’. The big thing around innovation and measuring it is to recognize when to invest more and also how to stop the investment when you know it is not going to yield results 6 © 2013 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM
