EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

After years of focus on voice-telephony, Vodafone should now focus on new areas like Value Added Services (VAS) and data based services for growth in future. Attractive offers in this segment would also help improve the Average Revenue per User (ARPU), a critical profitability parameter for cellular companies.

Vodafone India revenue has grown by 10.6% in FY13 compared to FY12. Its Operating Margin stands at ~ 30%. However, upside in terms of margin improvement with the current focus on voice telephony looks difficult. Thus, the focus needs to change from voice based services to non-voice services where there is significant scope for improvement in terms of revenue growth.

With the sale of 2G and 3G licenses last year and introduction of Mobile Number Portability, these has been a significant change in the competition canvas in the country with all the cellular service companies vying at each other’s share. In such times, it is important to be clear in terms of your target segments based on STP and on how would you differentiate your

    Demand for fixed line telephony is in decline, with the rate of decline in lines used by business nearly twice as high as that in the residential fixed telephony market. There is a trend for businesses to replace fixed line telephony with voice-over-internet-protocol, or VoIP, telephony, while residential customers are tending to migrate from fixed line to mobile telephony. However, Virgin Media’s fixed line customers may not migrate to the company’s mobile phones and it may eventually lose its fixed line customers to other providers of mobile telephone services. Such a migration could have a material adverse effect on Virgin Media’s ARPU, results of operations and financial condition. Across the industry, the landline subscriptions have been declining. According to industry estimates, landline subscriptions in the UK fell by over one million in 2010, with the business market hit hardest with a 5% drop. Ongoing negative trends in the fixed telephony market will negatively impact the company’s revenues.…

    The potential of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) adoption is being accelerated by the current global economic recession which has forced many organizations globally to cut back on their telecommunications expenses while increasing the duration, number and variety of calls being made globally. The primary catalysts of VoIP’s growth are its potential for cost reductions, operational improvements in organizations, convergence and business tool integration, and the development of entirely new services (Bayer, Xu, Rakocevic, Habermann, 2010). State-of-the-art VoIP systems are capitalizing on these market forces today and will continue to be adopted and contribute to the growth of enterprise-wide deployments of call centers, service centers, trading networks and exchanges, and global services organizations that are economically scalable due to the low costs of VoIP (Bradbury, 2007). In addition, mobile VoIP to support smartphones and social network integration are going to be commonplace within three years. The intent of this analysis is to evaluate how state-of-the-art advances in VoIP will impact the overall cost performance, efficiency, and global competitiveness of organizations in the next three to five years.…

    Skype Case Analysis

    (1) VoIP represents a great opportunity for telecom service providers to develop flexible and responsive offerings. These services can be developed as premium services by fully using the strengths of the Internet or internal intranets. These services can also be developed to use efficiencies that the Internet and intranets offer that traditional networks and network providers do not. However, it is not all too easy. While current and potential telecom service providers can build imaginative offerings and business plans; they must still have keep mind the competitive environment surrounding the VoIP market. Skype’s VoIP industry has a few competitors such as Comcast Corporation, Time Warner Cable, Cox Enterprises, and Vonage Holdings. As we have seen in the wireless / cellular service provider market, this can mean threats from existing companies who consolidate their position and acquire additional market share by purchasing their competition. As far as substitutes go, the VoIP industry has little or no substitutes. The Internet and broadband-based VoIP market could soon face competitors from the wireless or cellular service providers via wireless local area networks, WLANs. Buyers have some sort of power when it comes to purchasing or using Skype’s VoIP. Wireless or cellular and traditional phone service providers have seen demands from consumer’s drive their price per minute via lower tiered minute and flat rate plans. Pay VoIP providers are entering not at the top, but closer to the bottom of these pricing levels. Suppliers have most power when supplying to its customers. The penetration rate of broadband access in the United States, the lifeblood of pay VoIP services, is around 55 to 60 percent. This effectively caps the number of customers that have access to VoIP services and places more power in the hands of the broadband access providers. These conditions create a highly competitive…
