It is no news for wholesale operators that revenue from carrying traditional voice and SMS services is not growing, and therefore it is increasingly important for wholesale operators to explore new growth strategies.

Based on this, it seems that new growth opportunities are there for those wholesale operators who are prepared to embrace them. But how? The traditional wholesale market can leverage the very real opportunity to increase revenue, profit, market share and customer acquisitionetention by accelerating digital transformation through innovation, agility and the rapid rollout of new offerings.

Technology trends are reshaping the wholesale industry and opening up new service areas. Significant future growth is forecast from non-voice products and services enabled by technology (e.g. SDNFV, Cloud, 5G, IoT), and new customer markets supporting an increasing variety of retail communications services.
