Today’s mobile operators face the challenge of maintaining revenue and margin growth in an environment featuring high levels of penetration, increasing over-the-top (OTT) traffic, and new competitive business models from MVNOs, Wi-Fi, and disruptive players.

Operators continuously trial alternative technology and deployment trends, including virtualization, small cells and unlicensed spectrum, to increase flexibility and match network capacity to demand, all while balancing Capex and Opex business objectives.
