Telstra CEO Vicki BradyBrady thinks the role of the operator is to become an “ecosystem builder” that brings together technologies such as 5G, AI, automation, edge computing, and “an explosion of applications”. She also warned that if operators don’t change, they run the risk that the “value created over our networks gets captured by others.” Indeed, Brady advised operators to get comfortable with the idea of not always being in control of the end-to-end solution.
In order to maximize revenue and add more value, operators must expand their connectivity offerings beyond speed and customer experience; they need to expand their footprint into edge cloud platforms and AI-based solution stacks. Doing this will help them secure a larger share of the potential profits.
