edotco’s CEO on the threats to the towerco business model, and how to overcome them

During the 3rd annual TowerXchange Meetup Asia, edotco’s CEO Suresh Sidhu, took centre stage and gave an inspirational keynote speech on the changing dynamics of the tower industry by analysing, and proposing responses to, three main threats to its traditional business model: pressure on MNO margins, new entrants such as Google, Facebook and SpaceX poised to enter the infrastructure space, and the transformation of network architecture particularly at the heterogeneous network layer.

Sidhu opened his speech by identifying three concurrent forces which are “creating headwinds” against the traditional towerco business model, namely the financial and operational threats to MNOs and their way of doing business, OTT players entering the infrastructure industry and testing new connectivity and data solutions; and the transformation and evolution of the network architecture.
