Cross-technology collaboration key for long-term success of CSP: Strategy Analytics 


Industry digital transformation is entering a new stage, as the major economies are embracing leading-edge digital technologies to help the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. This is a great opportunity for communications service providers (CSPs) to scale up their businesses.

The whitepaper Cross-Technology Collaboration (X-Tech) Enables Industry Digital Transformation, jointed published by Strategy Analytics and Huawei, reviews the requirements of industry digital transformation and maps out the role for CSPs in serving the transformation.

The whitepaper analyzes how a CSP can improve its infrastructure, platform, service and integration capabilities to seize the opportunities in the industrial digital transformation market. Through integrating connectivity, computing, cloud, intelligent technology and operational technology, CSPs could shift their role towards being a Comprehensive ICT Service Provider.
