Equities.com: Northstream Predicts Competitive and Challenging 2013 for Mobile Industry
Stockholm, Sweden — Northstream, the strategic wireless business consultancy, today announced its predictions for the mobile telecoms space in 2013. Next year will see operators requiring less small cells, thanks to LTE’s improved indoor coverage, and the market power of device vendors shaping the evolution of mobile R&D. Northstream expects European regulators to increasingly accept operator consolidation, and network sharing, in 2013 in order to boost the market. We also predict Outsourcing and Managed Services to become more focused on promoting vendors to actively address operator network OPEX as a whole.
