Technologically, culturally and in terms of business models, the public cloud is still the Wild West for telcos. It is no less complex than traditional networking and is perhaps even more complex. It is also risky. Historically, any one of these concerns would be show-stoppers for CSPs that prefer a more principled engineering environment. This explains why, according to our research, most CSPs have deployed less than 5% percent of their operations software in the public cloud, at a time when investment in new operational and business support systems (OSS/BSS) should be on the rise in preparation for 5G.
