12 11 Modern development trends in the Caspian region’s inter-operator market The “old” model, based on voice trading, is gone, where each carrier had bilateral agreements with all neighboring countries was a lucrative market, no competition, prices regulated. The appearance of mobile carriers, the explosion of mobile data, broadband customers, services for enterprises, have totally changed the model. Everything is or will become IP, you exchange packets, no more minutes. So is becoming essential the services you can provide, the resilience of the network, the type of customers you have, the content that the users can generate. Prices are no more regulated, you need to be connected with everyone else, the concept of proximity looses any meaning, it is more likely that a Facebook user is connected to another Facebook user located in another continent than in the closer country. What means for any carrier: voice importance is decreasing, data is booming, you need to have an effective IP network reaching with high bandwidth the key peering points. The model changes: from 1:1 to 1 to any Overland and submarine cable lines: who will win? Both, terrestrial and submarine links must be seen in conjunction, not in opposition. The winning solution is the integration: lower latency, faster deployment for submarine, higher capacity, capillarity, faster repair times for terrestrial Q&A

13 12 Transit traffic between Europe and Asia: how operators in the Caspian region can become involved There is the general consensus that the route Europe to Asia is the most important in the world, the big majority of the traffic today is flowing through submarine cables, Middle East, Red Sea, Egypt, Mediterranean Sea. Terrestrial routes or combination of submarine and terrestrial have been announced and some are already active. The Caspian region can play an active role provided that there is a regional approach, not different country by country. The suggestion from an alternative carrier like Interoute, that has built in two years a km network in western Europe, is that a group of carriers (to nominate the countries…) offer a single stop solution, ready to integrate their network platforms, offering a single SLA and/or offering schemes of revenues sharing. Content Delivery Networks: a new point of leverage for fixed-line providers It is true, but you can expect to have CDN nodes if and when the market is really open, regulators bodies set clear rules, fiscal laws are clear and competitive, and you have affordable transit capacity!

14 13 Data processing centers and Cloud Computing: new business catalysts for fixed-line operators These are the killer applications for the development of the transit market in any greenfield region. Data centers have however two major requirements: competitive cost of energy and availability of skilled technical human resources, so this development is related to a strategic decision of the single country in the energy and education sectors. For cloud computing, carriers can act only as enablers, offering to the Service Providers favorable conditions, keeping in mind that there will be a trade-off between cost and performance. What is sure, is that the more sophisticated users will pretend to have, from their cloud computing suppliers, the same level of service wherever they are, in the heart of Silicon valley as well as in the middle of the Caspian region. Development strategies for fixed-line operators in light of the entry of new players to the market – primarily mobile operators It is not really a question for us, but the message we can give is that mobile carriers are offering tariffs to their roaming customers that also for data are not so different from the domestic ones, so the suggestion to the fixed-line operators is to increase the revenues through an increase of the traffic, not keeping high te cost per Megabyte. To this extent, it is needed a hard work on the optimization of the platforms, go to MPLS as soon as you can, if not already done….

15 14 Traffic growth with stable revenue: what an operator must do Decrease the cost, optimize the platforms, automatize the process. What is important is the margin, much more than the revenues. Managed services and outsourcing: is there a place for them in the business of fixed-line operators? Of course yes, mainly for carriers are relatively small and cannot reach the critical mass. Platforms are expensive, and the operational costs are high to guarantee 24/7 with adequate SLA. In addition, time to market is essential, so a two steps approach is recommended: start with outsourcing and then, eventually, do by your own
