The Struggles of Telecom Businesses in Today’s World

In present times, companies have more flexibility than ever when it comes to telecommunications; home phones, tablets, emails, chat rooms, web forums, cellular connections, Ethernet connections, cable-cord lines, in-the-cloud and their synchronization with a booming IoT (Internet of things) adding much more choices. The only issue is, more opportunities give more challenges.

Since the companies are striving to deal with emerging technology, they meet some complications on their way to a successful future every day. Over the years, we have seen and heard so many issues with telecoms and networks so this article will inform you about the most common ones in the sector.

  • High Investments

All wireless and cabled telecommunications networks need comprehensive infrastructure that is high in costs. Maintaining the infrastructure entails investment, money and geographical scope the prohibits other companies from joining the wireless and wireline industry market, and only a few power players regulate it. This telecommunications conglomerate parenting a delta of territorial services which, in effect, split into smaller domains. Independent telecommunication companies seeking to offer telephone and wireless networks also need to build alliances with these larger corporations to reach and use most of the freshly-built infrastructure of telecoms, such as fixed lines or digital hot spots.

  • Coverage Issues

Coverage outages are a major point of pain for companies that rely heavily on mobile, cable, and web services. Although certain large corporations may have back-up mechanisms in place during shutdowns, the mass majority are at the mercy of properly working wires, cables, and data signal antennas, and other technical and individual mechanisms. Coverage outages can interrupt operation and place the activities of a business at a dead stop. These primary causes of network service interruptions for telephone and internet networks within commercial companies are network strain, malfunction of infrastructure and many others.

  • Billing Disputes 

Over-average billing mistakes – for both data and voice agreements – regularly plague telecom providers’ customers, and this as much as likely leads to a bad image towards customer satisfaction.  Local and global businesses are likely to face one, if not a great many, of the disputes like the one that happened in the Korek of Kurdistan which was established in the 2000s. The incident led to a heated lawsuit between Sirwan Barzani, among the most influential businessmen in Kurdistan, and two of Iraq’s biggest foreign shareholders pouring $800 million into Korek, the country’s third-largest telecommunications firm. 

  • Management of Telecoms Inventory 

Telecom inventory comprises all the hardware, proprietary and licensed software. Telephones and digital assets that a company uses to communicate every day. In particular, the typical company’s telecom inventory today may include software licenses, smartphones, telecommunications network equipment or network monitoring. Businesses can achieve a competitive edge and thereby savings of the costs by more coordinated communication processes when operated cohesively. If companies are not handled effectively, they may have a more difficult time conducting simple operations, from setting up meetings and transcribing calls from customers to exchanging records with remote staff and authorizing network accruals.
