Modularization and new systems concepts to efficiently support future services
Apart from the end-customer segment, the future of telecommunication will most probably be driven by verticals, which will offer in the same time new business opportunities for operators. The different verticals will also bring different requirements to the network infrastructure. To support these requirements, we need a redesign of the infrastructure and the processes as well as a rethinking of telecommunication. The infrastructure has to be highly flexible and modular to increase the efficiency of operators.
