The rapid pace of change in the telecommunications industry can put a strain on a service provider's balance sheet. Reducing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) to support double-digit or non-linear OPerating EXpenditures (OPEX) reductions per year is required to defend service provider margins now and in the future. Many service providers have been able to reduce OPEX by three to five percent year over year. However, to achieve non-linear OPEX reductions they will need top executive direction and a trusted partner that has done it before and has the experience and expertise to translate the technical, financial, and operational risks and issues into business alternatives with associated benefits.
