Supply Chain Management for Telecommunication

Telecom Operator Industry

As an industry known for leading in innovation, the telecommunications industry is prolific at introducing new products. With rapid technology leaps – such as 5G and future generations of mobile networks – the industry experiences very short product life cycles. When shortages of semiconductors, components, or raw materials create constraints and delays in manufacturing, precious time is lost for reaping profits. The global nature of business is more complex today with risk events tied to logistics and global trade.  These challenges point to the need for a well-orchestrated supply chain, both for the infrastructure as well as devices side of the business.

A connected supply chain is the hot new device for telecommunications companies to tackle demand shifts, disruptions, and supply shortages.
