Traditional telecoms operators are at a crossroads. On the one hand, they have seen new OTT services develop lucrative new markets using their networks without sharing the corresponding economic gains. On the other, the cost of maintaining those networks will soon be multiplied with the deployment of the new 5G standard and IoT support. Increasingly, industry players are seeking to develop additional revenue sources in the unfamiliar domain of applications and software services.
