IDC European Telco Xchange 2023


Key trends for the telco industry include the continued rollout of fiber and 5G networks, the growing adoption rate of cloud-based services, and the accelerated evolution of Telcos becoming TechCos through splitting vertically integrated operations.

Telecoms operators face major headwinds from the recessionary environment, coping with inflation, rising energy costs and raised interest rates. Cloud-based services will continue to gain popularity, but the industry must deal with the challenges of data sovereignty and data protection, which is especially important in the European market.

Transitioning to a Techco is expected to provide a plethora of new opportunities for key industry players, but they will need to align closely to the regulatory frameworks that exist in country and across the region. Additionally, the industry will see an increasing focus on data privacy and security as technology continues to evolve and data usage becomes more widespread.
