How can service providers harness fiber network data to drive new revenue?

The network is the heart of an operator's business, so understanding how to extract maximum value from it is key to helping them unlock new opportunities and drive additional revenue from the services they deliver.

As global operators spend billions of dollars upgrading their network with fiber technology to boost performance and increase capacity, they must now look to start monetizing their increasingly heavy fiber investments.

Creating effective monetization opportunities is essential for service providers to ensure maximum return on both capital and organizational investments in these complex times. Seeking to shed light on the fiber monetization issue, Incognito partnered with Light Reading to survey telecom executives from around the globe regarding their applications of fiber network data and how it can help them bring new value to their customers.
