Communications supply chain market study: From equipment and spectrum to wholesale services

Part one of our market study identifies key trends across the inputs and intermediate elements of the communications supply chain – from components, equipment and spectrum, through to wholesale services and access networks.

It examines recent developments transforming communications networks, including:

  • equipment shortages causing manufacturing disruptions and logistics delays
  • shifts towards network-sharing arrangements
  • increasing consumption of data-intensive applications
  • increasing deployments of smaller satellites and partnerships with telcos
  • greater cloud adoption to enable network virtualisation and edge computing.

The report also highlights the implications of developments for the ACMA.
