Why Telco Companies Should Migrate to the Cloud

Telecommunications companies are under pressure to provide new services and applications at an ever-increasing pace. There is more data to transmit than ever before, and customers are increasingly expecting new services to be available at the flick of a switch. This has put telco companies under pressure to find innovative ways to design, deploy, and test new services. Many telco companies are turning to the cloud as a way to meet these demands. 

Why Migrate to the Cloud

There are several key benefits for telcos to migrate to the cloud:

  • Scalability:
    The cloud provides a means for telcos to meet customer demands. In order to do so, companies must have the ability to quickly scale their infrastructure.  This is a crucial consideration because they need to be able to support ever-increasing customer demands without running into capacity issues. The cloud provides this flexibility, allowing telco companies to quickly add or remove capacity as needed.
  • Meet the growing demands of IoT:
    The deployment of IoT sensors is generating vast amounts of data that needs to be processed and analyzed in order to extract valuable insights. This is proving to be a challenge for telcos, who are struggling to keep up with the volume and complexity of data using traditional on-premise systems.  The cloud also offers them a more cost-effective way to store and manage this data, as well as providing access to powerful analytics tools that can help them make sense of it all.
  • Cost savings:
    Migrating to the cloud has saved telco operators almost 80% on the total cost of ownership. This is due to the fact that the cloud requires no additional hardware purchases, eliminates real estate costs associated with data centers, as well as security and staffing costs. Additionally, third-party database software expenses are eliminated.
  • Easier to design and deploy new services:
    In the past, deploying new services often required significant upfront investment in hardware and software. With the cloud, telco companies can take advantage of pay-as-you-go pricing models and use on-demand resources when testing new services. This reduces the risk associated with launching new services and makes it easier for telco companies to experiment with new ideas.
  • New revenue streams:
    The cloud provides telco companies with the ability to offer new services such as cloud-based storage and backup, disaster recovery as a service, and data analytics. Additionally, with the growing popularity of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies, telcos can offer enterprise customers a way to manage and secure employee devices through a cloud-based Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution. As more and more businesses move to the cloud, telcos are positioned to become trusted advisors and provide value-added services such as data migration and integration. By offering these services, telco companies can tap into new markets and generate additional revenue. Telcos can also make up for declining revenues by tapping into potential opportunities with big data.
  • Enhanced security:
    The cloud offers telcos superior security measures, including layered defense and surveillance on data centers, highly controlled access, encryption, and frequent third-party certifications and audits. 


As telcos continue to face increased competition and ever-changing customer demands, migrating services to the cloud has become an attractive option. There are several compelling reasons for telcos to make this move, including scalability, ease of designing and deploying new services, the development of new revenue streams, and increased scalability.
