Nearly two-thirds of telecom providers have progressed to advanced digital transformation

In the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic vastly accelerated global digital transformation toward a more data-driven future. As the results of the most recent F5 State of Application Strategy survey make clear, telecom companies—whether mobility or fixed-line providers—are among the leaders. 

Other key findings from respondents in the telecom industry show:

  • Firms are progressing toward a more agile network: Using AI for security and business process optimization is increasingly common.
  • APIs are an increasing focus: Three-quarters of telecom firms have deployed an API security solution, an API gateway, or both.
  • Organizations have data but lack insights: 98% say they’re lacking the insights they need.
  • Edge computing, which the industry has approached from the perspective of multi-access edge computing (MEC), is the top trend: 88% of organizations are planning edge deployments.
