DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Telco Opex Analyzer 2016 – 2021” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
Telco Opex Analyzer analyzes the opex trends of a subset of key telcos in the telecommunications sector
The report’s dashboard allows a user to dig into overall spending levels, network’s contribution to opex, network-related Capex, and profitability for a group of 30 individual operators. The report is designed to help vendors understand and plan for the needs of their customers and help network operators deploy their technology budgets wisely.
Solving the opex conundrum
Managing opex is extremely important for telco CxOs. The problem is that opex is a bit of a mystery – it’s hard to understand across companies, countries, and over time. Reporting categories, definitions, and accounting standards vary widely.
This report solves the problem. We have created a taxonomy of opex categories, examined a broad cross-section of telcos, and calculated a detailed opex profile for both the individual companies and the overall telecommunications industry.
Many of the above results will not surprise those who closely track telcos. However, putting a credible number on a “gut feel” is a leap forward from the status quo. Vendors need to be able to position themselves effectively to customers. Telcos and analysts tracking them need to have an apples-to-apples comparison of how their costs compare to peers.
As far as public reporting goes, this study alone may not impact telcos’ opacity and inconsistency around opex. These practices have historic roots, in some cases, and old habits can be hard to break.
But observers should recognize that the practices are often self-serving, and just because a company says an initiative saved money, doesn’t mean it really did. Company execs in every industry tend to dress up their financial results to look as attractive as possible , and telecom is no different.
