Telecom equipment vendor Ericsson highlighted the opportunities open to telecom operators from cloud computing during the Arab Advisors Group’s Convergence Summit in Jordan.

Anders Lindblad, head of region Middle East and North-East Africa, Ericsson, who moderated the 'State of the industry' panel discussion, said that an increased focus on cloud was a “key emerging theme” during the summit.

“There is a great opportunity represented by cloud-based services for telecom providers because they increase the value of carrier networks in multiple ways and create new roles and revenues while also accelerating the journey towards the networked society,” he said.

Lindblad added that cloud-based services will greatly increase network traffic, leading to increased transport revenues for telcos that adopt the right strategies.

“By delivering cloud-based services, telecom carriers have an opportunity to extract multiple revenue streams from the same function; charging end users for a given level of service quality and charging cloud-based providers for service quality as well,” he added.
