The telecommunications industry is facing a dynamic transformation to be a service provider, with the challenge of monetization in mind.

To this end, it has been making large investments in the latest technological trends, which will define its new role in such a changing scenario. To do this, they must take into account these trends that will define the current year.

5G satellite connectivity

With the advancement of 5G networks, an increase in 5G satellite access and better 5G rural remote coverage are expected, with great use of IoT technology, or offering Networks-and-more-as-a-Service (N+aaS) and pay-per-use subscriptions to users.

Digital twins

Digital twins represent data and application networks and services together by analyzing data from multiple sources, machine learning, and creating virtual simulations to, for example, monitor complex infrastructures in real time, down to the level of individual machines.

The growing migration to the Cloud

Providing latency-free, high-speed connectivity is essential for a Cloud infrastructure. Likewise, telcos are reinforcing their data center services strategy to offer more possibilities to companies in their Hybrid Cloud projects.

Artificial intelligence and machine learning

Telcos, in their role as service providers, use machine learning and process mining to predict and fix problems before they become major problems

Moving to more decentralized architectures

Companies are choosing to protect customer communications and transaction data by shifting to decentralized architectures. Innovations like Blockchain frameworks and Decentralized Ledger Technology (DLT) provide a means to encrypt information exchanges and keep all events on-chains secure.

Cybersecurity and resilience

Since telcos provide the "backbone" infrastructure that enables other digital services, they must ensure that there are no "back doors" exposed. Understanding and mitigating these threats will be a critical task for telecom operators in 2023.

Telecommunications companies will take the lead in offering the best solutions to customers and will use cutting-edge computing and other futuristic technologies to create more immersive user experiences.
