MTN Consulting offers quarterly share analyses

Independent research firm examines vendor market share in telecommunications network infrastructure

Chandler, Arizona (USA), April 2, 2019 — MTN Consulting, which provides independent research and strategic support to the telecommunications, cloud, and IoT marketplace, has begun providing those services to the news media. In an age where digital communications have an ever-growing influence on the world, it is vital that the public understands the reach, impact and trends driving the telecommunications (telco) market and its underlying foundation of network infrastructure (NI) vendors.

To that end, MTN is pleased to launch a quarterly, media-friendly report on the market share of network infrastructure vendors such as Huawei, Nokia, Ericsson, Cisco and ZTE — currently identified as the Top Five. MTN Consulting plans to examine those companies, along with over 80 other suppliers each quarter, to provide timely and useful “market share” reports to those media groups that might require it. The first edition, “Telecom’s biggest vendors in 2018” will be released publicly on April 4.

“As customers, we all want access to the latest and greatest telco services, priced reasonably,” says Matt Walker, founder and chief analyst of MTN Consulting. “For that to happen, there needs to be a competitive, trustworthy ecosystem of suppliers who can help operators build these networks. There’s no hard and fast rule, but having three to five vendors actively competing per technology segment is a good target. That’s not being achieved. Many segments are more concentrated than this.

“Further, a single vendor – Huawei – has become unusually dominant on a global scale, across nearly all segments,” Walker says. “This has implications for both policymakers and telco CxOs. MTN Consulting’s vendor market share report provides objective, credible data that may make their decisions easier.”
