Abstract

This IDC Market Perspective provides an overview and analysis of telco cloud M&A disclosed in 2019. The document is limited to major M&A initiatives of telcos and MSOs from the cloud market perspective.

According to Ragupathy Vellappa, associate research manager, Worldwide Telecommunications Research, "Service providers are extending their cloud strategies to retain valued enterprise customers as well as establish an edge access strategy. The carrier groups such as Orange, AT&T, Verizon, GTT Communications, T-Systems, Iliad Group, and NTT Communications continue to add or acquire cloud-related platforms and hold a solid presence in the B2B marketplace. At the same time, service providers' divestiture of capital-intensive infrastructure/datacenter assets will continue in the forthcoming periods, and the sale proceeds from the divestiture will be utilized for their core markets and 5G-related investments, as well as to reduce the net debt. But they will continue to support enterprise cloud infrastructure deployments through channel partners."
