The current telco market is facing a major evolutionary step, where software, cloud, and automated technologies are set to redefine the way telcos plan, deploy, maintain, and monetize their networks. It is also clear that telcos can no longer continue selling connectivity alone, although this will remain profitable in the long term. Telcos have access to the last mile, whether this is spectrum or a fixed connection and hold a vast amount of data for end users; these can be used for good: to predict major incidents, improve user experiences, proactively expect what a user will need, and much more. Connectivity is the foundation for these advanced services and telcos can evolve to be much more.
