intelligence Intelligence Annual Industry Survey 2016

Building on the success of our prestigious Annual Industry Survey, the 2016 edition is the largest undertaking we’ve embarked on to date.

This year’s survey took in the thoughts and perspectives of more than 1,500 telecoms professionals with a staggering cumulative experience of 24,000 years. As usual we begin with our comprehensive sweep of the telecoms landscape, before taking a deep dive into six specific areas affecting telecoms today. From big data and BSS to IoT and NFV, we examine the principal areas affecting telecoms operators today.

More than half of the respondents to the 2016 survey originated from mobile or fixed operators, so the findings you’ll come across in this report provide a uniquely significant insight into the most common challenges and mindsets of people working on the ground in the telecoms industry today.

Some of our key findings this year are:

  • 86% of operators say they’re not ready to launch or monetise IoT,
  • 74% say industry consolidation activity will drive telco network investment,
  • 43% say VoLTE will be launched before 2016 is out,
  • 83% reckon LTE still hasn’t reached maturity,
  • 73% of respondents said all telco IT systems will be cloud-based in the future.
