Telecoms software and networks

Analysys Mason has the largest and most-experienced team in telecoms software and professional services research in the world

In Telecoms Software and Networks subscription research, we evaluate the way that communications service providers (CSPs)/network operators use software to enable services and support their operations, and how network architecture and market value chains are changing as a result of 'software-isation' and disaggregation.

The software systems that we research include OSS, BSS, NFV, SDN and those that CSPs use to automate and optimise their operations and deliver communications services. We also research specific applications, such as vRAN, vEPC, edge computing and network slicing.


Analysys Mason is uniquely focused on the telecoms, media and technology (TMT) industry and how software-isation is changing mobile and fixed networks.

We help CSPs, vendors/suppliers and investors to understand how these changes in the telecoms software and networking industry create challenges and opportunities from their perspective.

We also provide customised research that helps:

  • CSPs with targeted strategy evaluations
  • vendors to evaluate and profit from market opportunities
  • investors to evaluate investment values.

We evaluate supply and demand in telecoms software and the factors that are driving change. Our research programmes:

  • evaluate strategic drivers
  • focus on specific application areas
  • analyse market value chain implications
  • pull together aggregate numerical measures.

We also provide customised research that helps CSPs with targeted strategy evaluations, helps vendors evaluate and profit from market opportunities, and helps investors evaluate investment values.
