Pinsent Masons whitepaper outlines new carrier business models In an increasingly competitive and ‘always on’ world, telecoms carriers in EMEA need to focus on their key strengths and adopt more service-based business models if they are to survive. These are the key findings from a new report by international law firm, Pinsent Masons, which specialises in advising telecoms and technology businesses across the globe.
The whitepaper report discusses how increased competition and a changing legal background have impacted upon the EMEA telecoms industry. Looking forward, it also highlights the five key areas mobile and fixed line carriers will have to consider when making future plans for their business.

The whitepaper report identifies the following five key areas for carriers to consider in the future:
Pinsent Masons has advised suppliers and users of fixed line and mobile telephony on matters in connection with procurement, supply, and regulatory aspects of their telecoms projects. Pinsent Masons has supported many telecoms companies including Cable & Wireless, Arqiva and Nokia Siemens Networks.
