Ovum: the gap between mobile telecom operators in developed and developing markets in Asia has widened
. Ovum Research Institute pointed out that the gap between mobile telecom operators in emerging and developed markets and manual hydraulic pressure testing machines has widened, mainly due to the impact of foreign investment and 3G licenses
major telecom operators in developed markets, such as NTT DoCoMo, KDDI, KT, China Mobile and China Unicom, are very concerned about new revenue growth opportunities. These big bosses in Asia are very aware of the threat posed by super large telecom operators to traditional mobile telecom operators
ovum senior analyst Nicole McCormick said: "new revenue sources are crucial for telecom operators in developed Asian countries because super large telecom operators have invaded their fields. The list of suggestions for new revenue sources is not surprising: operators in the whole region are promoting open application stores, cloud computing and machine to machine communication (M2M). Emerging markets are far behind in this regard."
it is true that other measuring instruments in cities such as Thailand, Bangladesh and Pakistan can be sent for inspection according to their own needs, or 3G licenses have not yet been issued to the school yard. However, the telecommunications industry desperately tries to launch mobile networks, and tells the government that it has found that higher Internet penetration will increase GDP. Similarly, as regulators continue to delay the release of 3G spectrum, operators in emerging markets are considering skipping 3G and launching LTE directly
McCormick in Brisbane: "Foreign investors who want to develop this region must be careful. Some emerging markets are still full of regulatory red tape, especially when it comes to the issuance of 3G licenses. However, countries such as Thailand and Bangladesh still need some time to afford LTE consumer devices, leaving investors in a dilemma - trying to promote 3G or waiting for LTE."
on the contrary, although telecom operators in developed countries do not have the burden of bureaucracy from regulators, telecom operators in these markets still believe that they can achieve anything by themselves, such as cloud computing services, without partners. McCormick said: "however, it is still early days to meet the needs of fast running, friendly interface, simple operation and experimental methods that can meet different materials. We believe that cooperation is necessary, and cooperation will lead to more complex reality." CTI Forum Report
