2020 Winter Magazine

Welcome to Cost vs Revenue Center Discussions

Welcome to our 2020 winter magazine. Let us know how you like our magazine’s new look and feel.

This edition of the magazine has a special place in our hearts. Our team, for the last 25+ years, as product leaders, standards contributors and consultants, has been assisting with access transformations. The articles in this magazine summarize many of our lessons learned. We have assisted and managed many engineering and product organizations throughout our career. The issues related to cost and revenue center are daily concerns of any company, but especially in the Cable sector these are at the forefront right now. Hope we make a case for this and showcase how to solve some of these transformational problems.

Our strategy team starts the magazine with a discussion on the cost versus the revenue center yin and yang in the context of cable operators. Rest of the magazine is broken into two parts that are related to the cost center discussions (with an access network focus) and the revenue center discussions (with a healthcare opportunity focus). Many of these documents are presented in different reputable Telecom magazines. Please also pay attention to the abundance of references provided in each article.

In the cost center section, we highlight why the Total Cost of Ownership view is essential for selecting long-term access transformation strategies. The next article compares different access networks from their operational expenses point of view. The cable operators are venturing into Fixed Wireless opportunities, which is analyzed from performance and financial points of view as compared to FTTH.

In the revenue center section, we analyze the Healthcare opportunities from the Telecom operator point of view. These articles include the analysis of the Telehealth vendor space, why Telehealth and Aging in place are the best suited option for operators.
