Telecommunications Software Testing

Telecommunications Industry Challenges Far and Wide

For telecommunications service and software providers, shifts in technology and business models necessitate adapting business processes to retain current customers, while acquiring new customers requires continuous innovation in delivering better customer service while reducing costs. But shifts in business models, are not just different revenue models, but sometimes involve an entirely new line of business. As we’ve seen deregulation of the 80s led to divestiture, but it also meant increased merger and acquisition activity as telecommunications companies saw that the future meant more than providing phone lines. First, they ventured into mobile, then began to understand that mobile was also inherently connected to content, entertainment, and broadcasting. But fully leveraging their existing infrastructures while also attempting to cross-sell their customer bases has required a high level of integration unless these newly acquired or merged portfolio companies remain separate business units. To achieve the level and integration and synergy projected requires the right mix of investment not only in hardware infrastructure but software to support and operate equipment at extremely high reliability and sometimes under regulatory pressures.

Telecommunications Software TestingAs such, telecommunications industry IT project and software implementations are aimed not only at reducing operations costs but also simultaneously increasing process efficiency and integration across business units.

Telecommunications Software Challenges

Telecommunications software and IT projects may involve implementing and upgrading web-based offerings, improving back-office systems, or updating billing systems along with other OAM systems. All of these business systems require extensive and thorough quality assurance to ensure that customers get uninterrupted and secure service. Also of extreme importance is data integrity as big data has now become critical for analyzing not only optimizing internal operations but also in understanding the customer base in satisfying them today and developing new offerings for the future. 

This becomes more complex as regulations are constantly changing while organizations enter new markets, as well as exit markets they think, aren’t providing shareholder value. When entering a new market through merger and acquisition or developing a new business unit, attracting new customers, keeping them, and selling them other portfolio products requires tight integration of software and a strategy to tie it all together.
