Telco Streaming Strategies
Technologies and Business Models for the Netflix Era
A number of telco industry chiefs called upon the EU to regulate that streaming companies contribute to their network costs, given that they are creaming in vast profits atop the infrastructure that telcos have spent fortunes to build, while not financially benefiting from the gigantic traffic volumes it generates.
The flip side of this is the opportunity. There is a growing trend of Telco / Streamer partnerships, featuring key business models such as service bundling, where subscribers can pay for their streaming content through their telco account.
VMware is helping Telcos like Rogers, Telia and Dish to Deploy 5G Cloud Native Network architecture, with a supporting partner ecosystem for onboarding and certifying CNFs.
