Analysys Mason’s Cloud Transformation Benchmark (CTB) measures communications service providers’ (CSPs’) cloud-native readiness in terms of network function deployment and operations. We interviewed ten CSPs around the world and assessed their cloud-native progress in terms of their technological and organisational maturity. We then placed these CSPs into an anonymised benchmark matrix and segmented them into different categories based on their progress and common traits.
Key questions answered in this report
- How are CSPs progressing in terms of cloud-native network transformation and what is the outlook for the future?
- What are the key drivers and challenges of cloud-native network transformation?
- What are the main patterns in CSPs’ cloud-native adoption and how do these patterns compare with each other?
- What are the main cloud-native transformation strategies, roadmaps and emerging best practices?
