  Infonetics Research: Telecom Outsourcing, Managed Services a $76 Billion
  Opportunity by 2016

Business Wire

CAMPBELL, Calif. -- November 20, 2012

Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its latest
Service Provider Outsourcing to Vendors market size, market share, and
forecast report, which tracks the revenue vendors derive from the services
they provide to their carrier customers.

ANALYST NOTE

“We anticipated that service providers across the board would continue to
outsource at an unabated pace, but revenue in the 1st half of 2012 is already
2% higher than expected, with all OEM vendors reporting healthy growth in
outsourcing, professional, and managed services,” notes Stéphane Téral,
principal analyst for mobile infrastructure and carrier economics at
Infonetics Research. “This gives us pause to ask what would happen to some of
these vendors if they didn’t have a presence in services.”

CARRIER OUTSOURCING HIGHLIGHTS

  *The service provider outsourcing market is on track to reach close to $65
    billion worldwide by the end of 2012, an 11% increase over 2011
  *By 2016, carrier outsourcing is expected to be a $76 billion global market
  *Opex reduction continues to be the chief driver for carriers outsourcing
    to vendors network tasks such as designing, building, maintaining,
    billing, etc.
  *Managed service revenue (the sum of operations, network maintenance,
    planning and design) is forecast by Infonetics to outpace the overall
    outsourcing market, growing at a healthy 8% CAGR through 2016
  *A combination of large deals in Africa, such as Zain/Ericsson, and a
    flurry of medium-sized deals involving RAN-sharing activity across Western
    Europe, is sustaining EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) as the largest
    market for outsourced services
  *Traditional telecom vendors Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Huawei, and Nokia
    Siemens Networks manage about 1/3 of the world’s subscriber base, up 29%
    in just the last 6 months
