Within the telecommunications industry, communications service providers are facing a number of advances - social, financial, economic and technological innovations.
In many instances, they have in fact fuelled the evolution of the digital economy by providing platforms and environments such as successive generations of network infrastructure (presently manifested in the rollout of 5G). In these new infrastructures digital innovation can thrive. New market entrants and business models are introducing ‘value models’- putting incumbent players at risk of losing their ‘traditional’ pole position with their customers.
Old revenue models based on text messaging, traditional phone calls and connection charges are increasingly marginalized. Communications service providers now reinvent their strategy by either providing greater levels of capacity or by offering unique services such as privacy, security, augmented analytics for big data as well as seamless integration across other technologies or services.
This results in the requirement for the implementation of systematically designed security which in turn, must support the full infrastructure platform, data, process and partners and physical environment. Furthermore, the increasing importance of IoT also adds to this challenge.
The telecoms infrastructure has shifted from data usage to data driven analysis, distribution, security and monetization of data collected from multiple sources. How that data is leveraged and secured end-to-end becomes critical within this sector.
Utimaco provides proven solutions for secure end-to-end processes, empowering telecommunication operators and service providers to become the secure, agile backbone for new digital services that keep data safe and private.
