Forging a telco-OTT friendship

Telcos and over-the-top players don't need to be locked in a deadly duel especially when working together can deliver better outcomes. But forging effective partnerships will require plenty of patience and trust.

Everyone wants a good partner - just look at the immense popularity of dating websites and singles events. But divorce statistics remind us that finding a suitable partner is difficult, and keeping one is even harder. 

What’s true for daters is also true for communications service providers. Many providers believe they need to partner with device manufacturers and/or over-the-top (OTT) players to remain competitive, but they aren’t sure how to do so effectively.
