Capitalize on cloud to drive growth. Evolve into a cloud service provider: offer blended services, business apps and more.

Our view: For communications service providers (CSPs), offering cloud-based services is the way forward for business expansion and revenue growth. CSPs that evolve into cloud service providers could expand well beyond the traditional communications industry services market, extending their presence into a vastly larger market of network-powered blended services. This paper examines ways that CSPs can take advantage of cloud computing internally, and externally as a cost-effective way to create, manage, and monetize cloud-based services for their customers.
