Get to know the trends in the Telecom sector

The Telecom sector continues to be at the epicenter of innovation and growth thanks to new technologies emerging on the market.

According to a survey conducted by

Teleco, This sector should generate worldwide, by 2025, revenues estimated between US$ 3.3 trillion and US$ 11.1 trillion, contributing up to 11% of the world GDP. In Brazil, the estimate is for a growth in productivity of approximately 2% over the next decade, which could add about R$ 122 billion to the Brazilian GDP by 2025. This would generate between 1.9 million and 2.6 million new direct and indirect jobs or income-effect jobs.

Still, we cannot talk about the Telecom sector without pointing out that consistent connectivity and better customer service remain key elements. In this sense, a systematic combination of operational and technological changes will help drive the undeniable public engagement in Telecom. Especially after the major challenges and changes of the last 2 years.

However, it is always good to keep an eye on the main trends so as not to become a technological dinosaur. We have separated a few for you.

*4 Telecom Sector Trends

5G Technology Expansion

5G is the fifth generation technology standard for mobile and broadband networks. It is the latest industry trend, though certainly not the last. It promises less latency, which can improve the performance of enterprise applications as well as other digital experiences. Here we can mention online gaming and video conferencing, for example.

The 5G network will enable ever greater simultaneous interconnection between devices. As such, an evolution of the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) is expected. Therefore, an adequate infrastructure of data centers, antennas, cabling and fiber optic backbones will be needed. This is because existing networks and infrastructures are expected to multiply further.

Cloud Computing

Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and cloud computing work together in many cases. The former is the delivery of services over the Internet, while the latter is the tool that cloud computing uses to deliver these services.

By choosing new technologies such as cloud and virtualization, communication service providers can considerably reduce costs and increase business agility. While many telecom operators are reaping the benefits of NFV deployment, the trend is for more and more companies to take advantage of this great market opportunity.

Software-Defined Networks

SDN (Software Defined Networking) is an approach to network architecture that enables intelligent, centralized control using software applications. As such, it allows operators to manage the entire network in a consistent way, regardless of the technology used. OpenFlow (OF) is considered to be one of the first SDN standards. In this sense, experts point out that both will make networks more secure, transparent, flexible, and functional.

Merging VoIP with other voice technologies

VoIP technology is geared toward corporate internet calls. Generally, it is tied to already consolidated and traditional uses such as business telephone systems, call centers, among others. Since it doesn't use the conventional telephony system, calls are cheaper, integrating several sectors of the company. For this reason, it is widely used in organizations, since it offers an excellent cost-benefit ratio.

The rise of this technology has been around since before the pandemic, but the growth driven by social isolation has enabled it to demonstrate its potential in improving organizational communication. Furthermore, with the increased use of voice, including by devices and robots, the functionality of VoIP can be used in many different ways.

Therefore, merging with other voice technologies is something to keep an eye on. IBISWorld highlights, for example, smart speakers, the combined use with the Internet of Things (IoT), and even use in the logistics area through the voice picking system.
