SAN FRANCISCO, CA, October 27, 2008–Globally, carriers are in the process of transforming themselves using IP and Ethernet technology. TelecomView’s new report Telecom 2020: Transformation Strategies discusses this transformation and its effect on carriers themselves as well as on the industry itself.

“The telecom industry has embraced IP and Ethernet technologies for delivering the full range of voice, data, and video services,” said Bob Larribeau, Principal Analyst at TelecomView and author of the report. “What they may not realize yet is that this will have a tremendous effect on their business. It is apparent that it will result in a number of new partnerships and consolidations as the industry reforms around these new network technologies.”

This report discusses the fundamental issues that carriers will face during the next decade. It will describe how converged networks will generate converged services that will increase their competitiveness and make these services easier to understand and to use.

It will also discuss how carriers will become leading content providers as they expand and enhance their IPTV, music, and games offerings. It will describe the impact of this new content on carriers’ networks as the amount of video and other multimedia content increases. The metro networks will have to make significant changes in order to accommodate the traffic that these content services will generate.

This report discusses wireless, wireline, fiber to the home, voice over IP, and back office technologies. It discusses consumer and enterprise services, including home and business networks and systems.

This 75 page report provides strategies that the carriers and their system suppliers can use to prepare for 2020. It is an analysis of a global trend that will transform the entire industry.
