Stéphane Téral

Principal Analyst

With 24 years of experience in the telecommunications industry, Stéphane is regarded as one of the top analysts in his field, having been the trusted advisor at some of the world's largest telecom providers and manufacturers.

Stéphane joined Infonetics Research in January 2006, after 8 years with analyst firm RHK, where he developed their European optical coverage and helped carriers migrate from PSTN to next-gen networks. Prior to RHK, Stéphane was an engineer and project manager with Alcatel, where he deployed the CATV optical networks that allowed the 1992 Olympics and the grand opening of Euro Disney to be televised using fiber optics for the first time.

Stéphane now specializes in mobile infrastructure and voice over LTE and circuit-to-packet migration products, services, and adoption trends of service providers. He also tracks overall telecom economics and forecasts service provider capex, opex, and revenue, as well as outsourcing and managed services. As a consultant to startups, service providers, vendors, and the investment community, Stéphane helps clients identify new market opportunities, provides due diligence, and advises on positioning, product development, business plans, and M&A activity.

A highly sought thinker and speaker, Stéphane is quoted in prestigious publications such as The Economist, Le Monde, Barron's, and The Wall Street Journal, and presents at events worldwide, including GSMA Mobile Asia Congress; LTE World Summit; Self Organizing (SON) Conference; 3G, HSPA+ and LTE Optimisation; and the Tower Technology Summit at CTIA Wireless.

Stéphane was a McGowan Scholar at the McLaren School of Business, University of San Francisco, where he received his MBA, and has an Engineering Diploma in Telecommunications from Télécom SudParis (formally the Institut National des Télécommunications), France.
