Latest Industry Insights from Draup Braindesk

SWOT Analysis of KPN:
  • KPN intends to improve network connectivity by implementing fiber optic and 5G technologies with new partnerships and granting wholesale access to third-party operators through the open network policy. 
  • KPN pursues the multi-channel strategy for better customer interactions by storing all data in the platform to handle queries or network issues more effectively. 
  • KPN aims to enhance customer experiences by enhancing Passive Optical Network technology to amplify the upstream and downstream speed of the Internet through fiber optical cable.
  • KPN depends on global supply chains for hardware, and alteration of the international geo-political situation can severely impact the business of the company. 
  • KPN relies on network and information systems and other technology extensively, and disruption through computer viruses and cyber-attacks may impact operations and cash flows.
  • Telecommunications is focusing on the expansion of emerging Cloud services, network infrastructure, and integration of Internet of Things (IoT) devices. 
  • KPN aims to transform 5G and Wi-Fi 6 offerings to build a futureproof digital infrastructure with enhanced Passive Optical Network technology and fiber optics.
  • Rapid technological changes, frequent product and service introductions, and evolving industry standards adopted by a few competitors within the telecommunications industry are some major threats. Other than these, changing customer preferences and demographic, and economic trends can also be a significant obstacle. 
  • Tele2 partnered with Nokia to deploy the 5G radio access network to provide customers with better speeds and coverage. This deal could impact the 5G solutions of KPN  
  • Proximus has partnered with HCL Technologies to leverage its private cloud infrastructure, and this can affect KPN’s Cloud services portfolio.
