The German and international telecommunications industries have been facing challenges on an equally large scale. Bandwidths and customer requirements have been growing steadily, while prices for services have been stagnating. The glass fibre network is currently being set up by mainly alternative network providers. Since rural areas are more qualified for state subsidies for FTTH, urban areas in Germany are still underserved. In addition, application procedures are still very complex.
Growing competitive pressure and low margins in broadband business are driving the need to automate more and more processes in the value chain. Industry 4.0 has also become an issue – for the telecommunications industry in particular. Projects have to be transposed into standard products and processes in a uniform IT landscape (IT factory), where manual intervention is not required. It is often necessary to radically change legacy processes, structures, and even the overall company culture.
