Comms manufacturers follow IBM’s lead in services

Telecoms equipment manufacturers are aiming to replicate IBM Corp’s successful reinvention as a services organization over the last 15 years, in order to offset growing pressure on the profitability of their product lines from Far Eastern suppliers.

This is an interesting development within the industry. I guess they would be looking for Telco’s to outsource the install and running of the networks to the hardware vendor. So I guess it almost becomes a one stop shop you buy the hardware, install and operation of the network as a bundle from a single provider.
