Operator & OTT Collaboration: The dynamics and potential of future collaborations.

Northstream carried out an independent study, commissioned by a software and IT services provider, which was aimed at analysing the potential upsides of operator/OTT collaborations as enabled by open platforms.

The study first examined the contrast between the traditional collaboration models versus forward-looking models that are based on open platforms, then defined specific use cases describing the attractive possibilities that traditional models do not offer. This contrast was then modelled and applied across several European markets to quantify the potential opportunity that open platform can bring to operators.
