In the ever-evolving landscape of Telecoms & Media, the advent of 5G technology has been introduced in a new era of connectivity and content consumption. This dynamic intersection of telecommunications and media has created unprecedented opportunities and challenges for businesses. From delivering high-speed, low-latency services to meeting the demands of an increasingly data-hungry world, companies must navigate a complex terrain to remain competitive and relevant in this fast-paced industry.

Operator strategies for fibre and 5G investments

In order to achieve their substantial investment goals in fibre and 5G infrastructure, operators are streamlining their business models, with a primary emphasis on spectrum allocation and service offerings. They are employing strategies like infrastructure outsourcing, which encourages the rise of TowerCo industry leaders, and reinforces their nearshore-offshore policies.

To assist the R&D activities of an international telecommunications group, ALTEN set up an engineering service centre for the integration of new equipment of the existing network, and the microwave study on millimetre waves for the deployment of the future 5G network.

In view of the multiplication of TV platforms (connected TV, video game console, etc.), a French telecommunications operator wants to replace the traditional TV decoder, which is expensive to develop and maintain, with a unique application for broadcasting more than 70 TV channels to its subscribers.

In a hyper-competitive context in the telecoms market, retaining subscribers becomes a crucial issue for operators. In this context, LINCOLN (specialist subsidiary of the ALTEN group) has rolled out a Data Science service centre with a telecoms operator to develop a “Client Scoring” tool used to predict churn rate risks and implement customized marketing actions.

A European telecommunications operator, with more than 3 million homes subscribed to its fixed internet offer, has entrusted ALTEN with the level 2 and 3 (network access and services) customer technical support for an end-to-end incident ticket process.
