What makes a mobile operator successful? We have found that Frontrunners have common traits and different strategies in ways they approach the market and run their operations. These traits and strategies form the core of the Growth Codes.

Infographic Rio Report

Audiences in stadiums and arenas increasingly want to stream and share their experiences via mobile apps. With insight from the 2016 summer games in Rio, this report explores how to create networks that provide crowd-pleasing connectivity.


The 5G architecture will be cost-efficient to operate and have agile and flexible mechanisms in place for swift introduction of services. These properties are required to enable new business models.


PaaS provides the building blocks for automated testing, continuous deployment, as well as supporting the DevOps approach, and as such simplifies the development process and reduces time to market.


Hyperscale data centers are smarter, more flexible and enable totally new ways of running services and applications – our white paper reveals how.

user experience

A happy customer is a loyal customer but as customers constantly evolve – in their behavior, expectations and perception of their service performance – keeping them happy requires an experience-centric mindset by operators.

operational principles

 As the strategic ICT partner of choice for many operators, we’re really looking forward to sharing these insights and discussing the 5 principles in more detail to continue driving sustainable growth for our industry.

wisdom of clouds

We’re at the very start – not the end – of the cloud era. As industry pioneer Jason Hoffman explains, today’s dominant cloud players are actually small relative to the possibilities – and the future is there for the taking.


The choice between fiber and microwave in backhaul networks will not be about capacity, it will be about fiber presence and TCO. Microwave technologies will continue to play a very strong role on the road to 5G.

With new standards specifically targeting the connectivity requirements of Massive Internet of Things (IoT) applications, cellular networks can deliver reliable, secure and diverse IoT services using existing network infrastructure.

service exposure

To stay relevant and drive growth in the Networked Society, operators need to change how they do business and serve customers. One essential element in this transformation is service exposure.

cloud ran

By introducing Cloud RAN architectures, operators will be able to use Network Functions Virtualization techniques and data center processing capabilities in their networks. This allows for resource pooling, scalability, layer interworking and spectral efficiency.
