Looking at the decade ahead, I have reasons to see it as a transformational period for the entire ICT sector worldwide. I am confident that we, at HitekNOFAL, are well positioned to face the forthcoming challenges and emerging industry trends that are – all – opportunities for further business expansion and growth.
We expect the existing business model in our sector to be greatly transformed with an increased focus on the service layer. The growing operator emphasis on service interoperability between networks is leading several key vendors of service-layer technology to reevaluate their market offers. Vendors are therefore starting to deploy service-layer solutions, either converted into products or bundled with professional services. They are thus redoubling efforts to support Advanced Intelligent Network (AIN) customers with the idea of a "service-independent" architecture that can support operators as they migrate to a Next-Generation Network (NGN). Service layer technology can be used to improve network operations and add new services to help operators compete with Over-The-Top (OTT) players.Read More
