by VoipPlanet.com Staff

Infonetics Research released its updated Service Provider Outsourcing to Vendorsmarket size, market share, and forecast report.

Analyst Note
"Fierce competition among telecom service providers around the world is driving them to increase operating expenses, and that in turn is forcing service providers to outsource more of their network tasks, because outsourcing is one of the last remaining ways to cut opex. With major outsourcing deals looming, Ericsson, Nokia Siemens Networks, Alcatel-Lucent, and Huawei may end up running three-quarters of the networks on this planet," notes Stéphane Téral, principal analyst for mobile and FMC infrastructure at Infonetics Research.
