Global mobile data traffic will grow by eight-fold over the period 2015 to 2020. Mobile data traffic will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 53% to reach an average of 30.6 Exabyte per month. The implication of this growth is that many network operators will have to invest significant amount of CAPEX in order to build capacity to carry this traffic. 75% of mobile data traffic will be video, which further compound the pressures on current networks.
Although data traffic is expected to record massive growth, the corresponding revenue is not expected to experience the same growth trajectory as average price per GB is expected to decline. The digital revolution compound with the commoditization of voice and subsequent drop in voice revenue will result in significant network challenges for telecom operators.
How will telecom operator build and manage the multi-service network of the future in the face of declining revenue? How can they remain competitive in a changing environment? The change in the market dynamics brings new challenges.
