The accelerating number (and scale) of network deployments, along with the roll-out of new technologies such as cloud-native architectures, 5G and fibre networks, will put operators under pressure to manage increasing operational complexities and costs. To maximise opex efficiencies, operators should adopt a holistic approach and look for savings beyond the network.

This report answers the following questions.

  • How will automation and cloudification affect productivity and overall costs?
  • How will a wider range of organisations affect telecoms operators’ operational costs for network and cloud sharing and hosting?
  • How are operators’ efforts to address sustainability concerns affecting costs and profit margins?
  • How are staffing/productivity/automation levels affecting costs and profit margins? What effect has the COVID-19 pandemic had on these areas?
  • How is operators’ overall opex changing and why?
