LONDON – The hike in the usage of wireless technologies amid severe competition in the telecommunications industry is driving telecommunications companies to investigate and make investments into emerging technologies like virtualisation, network functions, data centers, and virtual private cloud (VPC), amongst others.

With an eye to harnessing the potential benefits comprising customer satisfaction, novel revenue streams, and cost savings, telecommunication carriers are vigorously investing in core technology areas.

In regard to investments in the major areas of ICT spending, such as software, hardware, and IT services, consulting and communications, the respondents are boosting their investments in customers, software licenses, along with application development & integration (AD&I) services.

At the same time, reducing costs, raising revenues, and enhancing efficiencies are the first priority business goals for telecom firms.
