Basset Telecom Report:
Operators face a variety of future challenges
Basset Telecom Report #3: “Roaming – from cash cow to end-user follower” is launched. The roaming area is going through a transformation phase. Technology and regulations will force operators roaming business to change – from being a lucrative cash cow to a slim-lined business where strong innovation skills are needed to ensure revenues.
The fundamental challenge is how to handle the growing traffic volumes; to manage those in order to serve the subscriber, but also to maintain and secure the revenue streams. Another challenge linked to that is how to develop routines that provides an overview of this growing traffic.
Furthermore, operators need to find solutions to manage implementation of discount rates and specialized agreements in an effective way. This calls for the ability to quickly adapt new technologies and implement necessary changes that will shorten time-to-market for new roaming service packages. Operators need to take control of their roaming business to be able to win the struggle of the subscribers.
– To save operators from further roaming losses and secure future revenues, operators need to streamline their roaming business model and, together with the subject-matter-expert vendors, focus on breeding innovative and effective products to the end users. The key success factors for operators are increased control, insight and agility – and foremost – find a way to a comprehensive end-user perspective, says Helena Sundberg, Product Manager Roaming at Basset.
