Navigating the mobile internet: Transform or perish

The mobile internet carries high stakes for the future of mobile service providers.

To succeed, service providers must carefully prioritize their investments with particular focus towards enabling intelligent end-to-end IP capabilities to facilitate profitable partnerships and personalized mobile internet services.

Since mobile networks consist of high-performance and specialized equipment, service providers will continue to require significant support from their key infrastructure suppliers.

To avoid mismanaging the infrastructure or misaligning investment strategies, service providers must seek support from vendors in the areas where they are strong, and remain cautious when vendors promote solutions and/or design philosophies that lie outside their core competencies.
