The three distinct groups of interacting players: network operators, device/platform vendors and over-the-top (OTT) service providers have ambivalent relationships with each other. There are some strong forces of mutual attraction within this "competitve triangle". But these three groups of players are rivals too - and their rivalry is set to become increasingly intense.
Underlying the relationship between the players in the competitive triangle is a powerful set of needs that each player has, and that the other players can fulfil, creating a mutual dependency.
This EITO thematic report explains these intense relations and interdependencies on the telecommunication market. The report gives an overview of the current situation and the vibrant competitive dynamics that influence the telco industry in Europe.
The report has been prepared by IDC in cooperation with the EITO Task Force bringing together the expertise of ICT industry associations across Europe.
