Big4.com, the premier social networking forum for professionals and alumni of Accenture, Andersen, BearingPoint, Capgemini, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG and PricewaterhouseCoopers PwC reports that a new PwC study has nearly 90 percent of wireline operators and more than 60 percent of wireless operators intending to decommission legacy networks during the next five years.

Big4.com reports that in its report 'Clearing the Way: The 2012 Outlook for Telecom Network Decommissioning' PwC's Global Communications Industry Practice found that operators are targeting network decommissioning primarily as a means of reducing operating costs. While cost cutting was cited as the main attraction for potential network decommissioning, other factors included improvement in customer experience, elimination of redundant or overlapping wireless networks, and migration of traffic to more efficient networks.

Big4.com also notes , only one fifth of wireline operators and one third of wireless operators said they were able to track all their assets. In fact, half of wireline operators and a third of wireless operators said that less than 50 percent of their assets were catalogued and managed.
