EMEA CSP Spending Outlook, 2014–2018: CSP CAPEX and OPEX to Remain Mostly Flat
This IDC study contains data for 2010-2013 and the latest forecast for 2014-2018 for EMEA CSP spending. It segments CAPEX and OPEX data by the major subregions of the Middle East and Africa, Central and Eastern Europe, and Western Europe. It also discusses the major trends that will affect CSP spending, and identifies some likely areas where CAPEX budgets in particular will increase.
"While overall CAPEX and OPEX spending will be flat, there are opportunities for telecom vendors in new network architectures, group consolidation, and scattered areas of network transformation. OPEX efficiencies will also be a primary driver of large telecom projects over the next five years." — Research Director Andy Hicks, Telecommunications and Networks, IDC EMEA
