Strategy Analysis: Fixed-Mobile Convergence

With the trend of consolidation and fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) across Europe, many Communication Service Providers (CSPs) are examining the relevance of this trend to their business. The client commissioned Northstream to formulate a strategic framework considering various FMC scenarios and drivers.

Northstream’s methodology set out to firstly define a set of potential strategic options to pursue, this was followed by extensive development and structuring of prerequisite conditions which would have to be fulfilled for a given strategic option to be viable. Data analysis of the client’s market position and context were then applied to the prerequisite conditions; which finally led Northstream to conclude with substantiated and logical recommendations on the most viable strategic option.

Northstream’s report served as a holistic analysis of FMC relevance to the client’s future prospects and provided clarity and alignment within the senior leadership team.
