CAMPBELL, Calif. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its latest Service Provider Outsourcing to Vendors report, which tracks the revenue vendors derive from the services they provide to their carrier customers.
The report tracks both the overall network outsourcing market as well as the fast-growing managed services segment within it, also referred to as ‘full-service outsourcing,’ where an equipment vendor takes over an operator’s entire infrastructure on an end-to-end basis over an extended period, including network maintenance, operations, planning and design tasks.
“At this point, it’s hard to find new large outsourcing deals unless China comes on board, which may eventually happen due to the ongoing discussion about 4G network sharing,” notes Stéphane Téral, principal analyst for mobile infrastructure and carrier economics at Infonetics Research.
Téral continues: “As a result, last year was marked by musical chairs: Huawei and ZTE picked up some deals, while Alcatel-Lucent and Nokia exited some unprofitable contracts. But overall, demand for managed services with a strong focus on user experience remains unabated.”
