Infrastructure and technology practice

The telecom industry is rapidly changing giving rise to a new and challenging playing field for operators. Reduced profitability, an increasingly digitised world, fundamental shift in customers’ behavior and new sources of competition are all putting pressure on the bottom line.

In this context, transforming networks and technology is a must, not only for the survival of the operators but also to future-proof business models in a rapidly transforming TMT space. However, with most operators today, the starting position in technology and operations is indeed challenging: growing complexity causing more business disruption, increasing running cost of technology and leaving little budget for transformation projects, slow and cumbersome legacy processes, among many other issues.

Delta Partners' Infrastructure and Technology practice offers a unique proposition for our clients.

Our engagement with mobile, fixed and convergent operators on Network strategy & transformation, TCO optimization, sharing, rollout of new technologies and legacy decommissioning has lead to a strong experience in supporting operators to rethink and optimize their networks.

We have also excelled in supporting operators to monetize their networks through wholesale go-to-market and growth strategies of infrastructure, connectivity and VASs as well as infrastructure carve-out in co-operation with our Corporate Finance team.

With a dedicated practice team and senior advisors that include former CTO’s of major operators, we have formed partnerships with specialized firms, adding value to the overall Network preposition that Delta Partners offers.

Expertise and knowledge include:

  • InfraCo and NetCo creation, monetization and optimization
  • TCO Optimization & Strategic Alignment
    • Future proof architecture and technologies
    • Footprint and legacy optimization
    • Network sharing
    • Network operations
  • Monetizing Networks through wholesale
    • Wholesale decision for infrastructure and connectivity
    • Wholesale growth (national and international)

The development of ultra-fast broadband services requires operators to rethink their investment strategy by considering new network architectures, technologies, footprint and sharing models; coupled with new monetisation business models
