Telecom operators are set to continue making significant investments in their network infrastructure, particularly with the emergence of 5G for Public and Private sectors.
One way they can ensure sufficient return on investment is by offering new, advanced and innovative services that seamlessly leverage their IT and telecoms infrastructure. In this respect, the physical security market represents an attractive opportunity for telecom operators to broaden their offering and customer base.
With annual growth of over 6% driven by increasing and more complex threats across the world, the market is sizeable and largely untapped by operators, who are well-positioned to provide security services to cities, airports, ports, railways, and sensitive industrial sites. Some have already entered the security market in tandem with specialized industrial groups such as Thales.
Discover our new solution: “Security Digital Platform”, a game-changer for telcos, enabling them the opportunity to propose “Security as a service” offers to their customers, leveraging their own IT and telecom infrastructure, in particular upcoming 5G, combined with Thales expertise and applications in security. Beyond security, telcos would progressively be able to offer services for operations optimization, e.g. moving from Safe City to Smart City applications.
