Strategy and planning

Our consulting teams around the globe assist clients on all aspects of strategy development and review, technology portfolio analysis, revenue uplift and market-entry strategies, customer segmentation, competitor profiling and market analysis.

Analysys Mason has an excellent track record advising mobile operators, regulators and governments, financial institutions and private equity funds worldwide, based on our deep telecoms commercial and technical expertise.

We support telecoms, media and technology clients in assessing, valuing, structuring and implementing network-sharing agreements between mobile operators – either as a fall-back alternative to in-market consolidation, to realise cost synergies or as a joint-bid vehicle in next-generation spectrum auctions.

Increasingly we are helping operators move into new frontiers and identifying value in the digital space.

We advise and support clients looking to transform into digital service providers.
