KPN to integrate core networks, upgrade access networks

Tuesday 8 March 2016 | 17:09 CET | News
The implications of KPN's new 'simplify, grow, innovate' strategy for its various networks was discussed at the company's Capital Markets Day 2016. KPN plans a simplified network with a new operating model, integration of the core networks and the roll-out of new technologies. This all comes in response to the growing demand for data services. OTT services (Netflix etc.) and some of KPN's own services (Play, TV Everywhere) are driving high growth in non-linear video traffic. KPN expects data traffic to grow 70 percent per year in the period 2015 to 2020.
