New Report Examines Mobile Network Cost Optimization Strategies

ROCKVILLE, MD--(Marketwire - October 27, 2009) - MarketResearch.com has announced the addition of IDC 's new report, "Network Cost Optimization Strategies for Mobile Operators," to their collection of Networks market reports.

This study examines the opportunities and challenges for introducing mobile network cost optimization strategies.

In the main, it assesses the advantages and disadvantages of initiatives such as network sharing and undertaking managed network services contracts, as well as optimizing backhaul and radio interfaces. The report also profiles a number of Western European MNOs (mobile network operators) by exploring their approaches to reducing opex (operating expenditures) and to some extent capex (capital expenditures).

"IDC believes that there is a marked need for larger and more thorough optimization efforts from MNOs particularly under current financial and market circumstances. In this, we expect that network sharing, undertaking managed services contracts, as well as optimizing backhaul and radio interfaces will continue to hold considerable potential in delivering opex and to some extent capex savings," said Joao da Silva, senior research analyst, European Telecoms and Networking.

Topics covered in the report include...
