Current Analysis Launches In-depth Product Assessment Resource for Telecom Network Infrastructure Procurement
Leading market intelligence firm provides product, company and industry analysis and comparison tools to help Telcos improve critical equipment, software and technology purchasing decisions
Sterling, VA, USA – June 5, 2014 - Current Analysis, Inc., a leading provider of timely, practical market intelligence and advice for the global IT and telecom industries, released Telecom Equipment Buyer today, an entirely new way for telecom service providers/operators to research, evaluate and compare products and companies to accelerate and enhance procurement decision making with expert, unbiased assessments and tools. The Network Infrastructure market is evolving rapidly, facing new network and service transitions such as 5G, virtualization and the OSS/BSS demands driven by telco-OTT competition. A recent Current Analysis study found that two-thirds of operators have plans to adopt cloud-based OSS/BSS platforms by the end of next year, alone.
“Maintaining and innovating in network infrastructure is critical to the success of service providers/operators as they seek to differentiate their service offerings and create additional revenue streams,” stated Tim Dowd, CEO and President of Current Analysis. “We’ve developed Telecom Equipment Buyer as a way to cut through the clutter and hype with an unbiased resource that will allow them to not only keep on top of industry trends and market disruptors that will impact technology purchasing requirements, but also gain a deeper understanding of constantly changing vendor offers, strategies and roadmaps as well as new innovations and emerging technologies. We are providing operators a tactical market intelligence resource to enable them to make the right technical choices, better negotiate and increase speed to implementation.”
Telecom Equipment Buyer provides the procurement professional with regularly updated vendor assessments, product assessments, market advisories and timely analysis of key product launches, partnerships, acquisitions and other events shaping the industry. It also provides the ability to compare vendors and their products, side-by-side, providing valuable intelligence to simplify the purchase decision process. In addition to the 125 in-depth product assessments and 85 vendor evaluations, the service includes complimentary interaction with industry experts that offer real-time insights on the network infrastructure market.
“There’s no shortage of significant change taking place in the service provider network circa 2014,” added Jason Marcheck, Research Director, Service Provider Infrastructure for Current Analysis. “In the access layer, service providers need to be thinking about the introduction of small cells, LTE-Advanced and new PON technologies. In the core, virtualization is a topic that can’t be ignored. On top of all of this, vendor consolidation remains a key consideration in any network purchase decision with our recent survey work on OSS/BSS selection criteria signaling that operators see financial stability as the #1 most important vendor attribute.”
To sort through all of this, Telecom Equipment Buyer offers service providers/operators a means to quickly research and compare product and vendor strengths and weaknesses, along with other important procurement consideration factors, with a focus on actionable intelligence.
