    Why despite increasing market base, Telecom operators are under tremendous pressure to better their ROI from core infrastructure investments? Having invested billions of dollars in setting up the Network Infrastructure and other support services operators are still not able to leverage them for better margins. On the other hand OTT players and useers are leveraging on operators network for text, voice and video communication without the need to pay. Not surprisingly, leading to dwindling call & sms revenues for the operator and the tag of ‘Dumb tubes’.

The operators need to seize the opportunity and thwart the uncomfortable tagging.

The big question for service providers then is how to effectively address the sudden surge in data traffic and innovate and optimize for better monetisation.
