The Communications industry is undergoing a major transformation. The convergence of IT and network operations drives the implementation of an all-IP communications network. Service providers will prioritize investments in service-enabling initiatives in mobile and cloud. This transformation brings new business models, security threats, and regulatory compliance issues.
Symantec is ideally positioned to support Communication Service Provider (CSP) imperatives to lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and comply with industry regulations while protecting valuable assets and brand. This will generate new revenue streams with mobile and cloud services.
CSP IT data centers have grown explosively in recent years due to both organic growth and acquisitions. These dynamics have introduced a layer of complexity to their environment. Consolidation, standardization, and virtualization technologies, as well as IT sourcing from the cloud, are key projects Symantec is working on with CSPs worldwide to reduce complexity and cost. These solutions help improve innovation and time to market while complying with global and local laws and regulations.
