A communications service provider (CSP) is a service provider that transports information electronically. It includes service providers offering telecommunication services, information and media services, content, entertainment and applications services over networks. CSPs can be broadly classified into cloud communications service provider, telecommunications carrier, cable service provider, content and applications service provider and satellite broadcasting operator. CSP use software defined wide area network (SD-WAN) and hybrid WAN technologies as it provides low latency and high performance access to cloud- based applications. This technology simplify delivery of WAN services across the network, and enables software virtualization in turn simplifying network operations. CSPs network ensure reliability, security, and traffic handling assistances delivered through SD-WAN technology.
With the adoption of cloud in CSPs offerings, communication service providers are shifting towards horizontal industry services from vertical industry services. This shift enables penetration of CSP network market in small and medium bussiness (SMB) applications, machine to machine services (M2M) and analytics. The CSPs is focused on location based services, communication, software and support, analytics and hardware and intend to provide it in an integrated bundle with single billing point. This is expected to boost the market growth of CSP network by strengthening management and sustain alliances and partnerships. Moreover, the CSPs facilitate extended security support with deployment of security-as-a-service.
