In a changing market place, telecom operators in the region will increasingly need to become providers of integrated services, Chinese networking firm Huawei warned this month.

While internet protocol TV (IPTV) is currently the most promising technology in the consumer market, the ability to provide integrated solutions that include solution design, service hosting and business process outsourcing is a key area of concern for business users, a senior regional executive at the infrastructure provider said, following the 3GSM conference held in Dubai, last month.

“Telecom services and networks will undergo structural changes in the next five years and the goal of many operators is to have all operations on an internet-based architecture by 2010,” said Wang Jiading, vice president, Huawei Technologies, Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

“Operators need to avoid churn and safeguard revenue by providing the high speed and quality services that users demand at low costs.”

“3G/WCDMA/HSPA is clearly the preferred mass market technology as it scores highly on revenue generation capability, cost-efficiency and technical performance and represents the clearest evolutionary path forward for mobile operators,” he added.
