The Next Generation Telecommunication Summit enables “C” level executives from the equipment manufacturer, service provider, content owner and Regulator community – all stakeholders in this developing new world of multimedia convergence – to come together and debate the challenges they face.
The converged services landscape is changing as never before. Fuelled by innovative technologies and new business applications, today’s multiple delivery channels and cross border services reach ever wider audiences.
Telecom, cable, content, media, entertainment and Internet companies are all trying to gain the upper hand in terms of market share and profitability but the challenges are huge. Competition is intense as traditional market boundaries are crumbling while customers are demanding more innovative services at lower cost.
The challenge for all operators is to create an environment where business objectives and goals are dictating innovation and technological investments, not the other way round. Technology, operations and marketing departments are taking on an increasingly converged role in these investments as the fast development and rollout of new services and applications is steadily becoming the key difference between success and failure.
What is best practice for Managing operations for converging services? What’s the next phase in mergers and acquisitions going to look like? How does technology convergence influence change? How do customers benefit?
How will broadband affect the broadcast landscape? How will FTTx, WiFi, WiMax, Powerline, Ultra Wideband, digital terrestrial, digital satellite and mobile TV all play a key role in the delivery of content across these various broadband-enabled platforms?
With content being accessed worldwide via various channels, what is the ideal strategy for managing the rights to that content? Should rights be abolished or should/can rights be enforced by technology?
Meeting these challenges needs a 360-degree view – the NGT Summit will provide a focused environment for senior executives responsible for long term business strategy; operations and marketing experts who must ensure these strategies are put in place quickly; and the technology gurus that are charged with ensuring these strategies are realistically aligned with network infrastructure, performance and future growth.
The Summit will enable the senior executive delegation to fully understand the technologies, their capabilities and their places in the business plans of Telecom, cable, content, media, entertainment and Internet companies.
Senior decision makers from the North American Telco market will engage in a series of business meetings, one to one solution briefings, round table discussions, workshops, keynote speeches, fine dining and unlimited networking over the three day event.
Ultimately, who looks to gain most from the new world of convergence and what partnerships can be built to deliver the ultimate customer experience?
"Well planned! The design is excellent. The one-on-one meetings save me days in efforts to contact with high level staff of the providers I’m interested to talk with."
