Technology

Where it all begins: the technology.

The right technology is the base of any successful telecommunications and media business.

Choosing the right technology sometimes seems daunting to even the most experienced companies. Innovation is fast, investments are significant. The right technological infrastructure can provide a sustainable competitive edge, while the wrong decision may be financially devastating and slow you down for years. This is true for all segments of TMT and beyond.

This challenge is made even bigger by “language differences” between technology departments / providers and commercial departments. Bridging this gap is a key requirement for cash flow optimized decision making – and one of the biggest optimization potentials in the worldwide telco industry.

Solon’s detailed understanding and experience regarding underlying technology and infrastructures allows us to support clients in making the right technology decisions that will impact business strategy and future reality for many years to come. Because technology is not an obstacle, but a chance.
