Challenges and opportunities in a fast-evolving market
Dr. Rolf Nafziger, Senior Vice President International Wholesale Business Unit (IBU) at Deutsche Telekom (DT), talks to Capacity about a telecoms market in a dynamic state of transformation and innovation.
Q 1 Traditional business models are becoming obsolete as the telecoms market undergoes rapid transformation. Can you tell us a little about DT’s plans to meet these challenges?
I believe that innovation is key, and that is also exactly what Deutsche Telekom stands for. We’re actively breaking new ground in several important areas. On the one hand, there is immense work on 5G where we are taking a leading position. We are also driving the European Aviation Network (EAN) project, a unique integrated system that brings together S-Band satellite connectivity with a complementary ground network for the benefit of air passengers in Europe. In an industry where security threats are constantly growing with no end in sight, every communications network is vulnerable. That’s why security is one of our most central concerns and why we’ve established a wide variety of initiatives to help combat cyber criminality and protect the valuable assets of our global customers.
