Bridging the Growth Gap: Uniting Businesses with Seamless Connectivity
Next-generation wireless networks offer boundless opportunities for businesses to improve communication and collaboration. But this landscape of limitless potential also brings forth a widening growth gap. Despite the vast total addressable market (TAM) encompassing diverse sectors and industries that could benefit from wireless connectivity solutions, there remains a significant divide between TAM and the serviceable available market (SAM) for communication service providers (CSPs). This discrepancy arises due to various factors:

  • Infrastructure and Technology Limitations – The infrastructure that CSPs require to support enterprise wireless services may be inadequate or underdeveloped in certain regions and geographies. This includes limited network coverage, insufficient internet connectivity, or outdated hardware — Has your business aligned its vision and team to capitalize on the opportunity universe emerging from this growth gap?
  • Affordability and Budget Constraints – Holistic wireless solutions are often associated with hefty infrastructure expenditure, and not all businesses have the financial means to invest in these services. Especially for smaller or budget-conscious companies, the cost of implementing wireless solutions may be prohibitive — What frameworks will help you evaluate the potential ROI benefits of your wireless investments?
  • Industry-specific Requirements – Some sectors have unique needs that may not align with the capabilities of existing enterprise wireless services. For instance, highly regulated industries such as healthcare and finance may have specific security and compliance needs that not all wireless providers can cater to— How can CSPs better prepare their infrastructure to customize their solution portfolios?

Embracing the New Realities of a Wireless Future
At present, wireless technology predominantly serves as the means to connect employees within organizations. However, innovations in network automation and next-generation wireless have the potential to unlock a myriad of new possibilities, revolutionizing the way machines, customers, employees, and networks interact with each other. This implies that connected machines and devices inside buildings, campuses, and enterprises can hasten the realization of meta factories, telehealth, smart cities, and autonomous mobility— Does your organization have a structured growth pipeline management system to identify and capitalize on the right opportunities?

Now, fulfilling the potential of 5G and other advanced wireless technologies entails a dynamic and intricate ecosystem of key players, spanning wireless carriers, equipment manufacturers, infrastructure providers, and cloud platform suppliers. Further, assembling a comprehensive solution often involves harnessing capabilities and technologies from various providers. In the quest to deliver holistic solutions and gain a competitive edge, the enterprise networking realm is witnessing a proliferation of groundbreaking partnerships, alliances, and collaborations among both enterprises and vendors — often uniting former competitors.

  • How will you analyse technology trends in enterprise wireless solutions against the growth opportunities they spark?
  • Which strategic partnerships and collaborations should your business prioritize to overcome wireless infrastructure limitations?
  • How will you establish competitive differentiation through technology-enabled services that maximize customer value?
