25th ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL: STRATEGIES FOR THRIVING IN THE AGE OF DISRUPTION
The telecoms sector has come a long way in the past 25 years – so much so that it’s barely recognizable from the 1990 landscape. Now the industry is in an even greater state of flux as everything heads towards “anytime, anywhere, always on” digital services enabled by all-IP software-based virtual networks that will connect virtually everything.
Telcos must transform themselves like never before, and many challenges lie ahead, but within those challenges are major opportunities. As disruptive as the digital revolution is, that doesn’t mean telcos can’t do their own disrupting and lead the charge themselves. With the right strategy, telcos can not only thrive in the Digital Era, but also lead the charge in terms of innovative new business models and services.
Themed “Strategies For Thriving in The Age of Disruption,” the 6th Annual Telco Strategies Conference will look at the current trends reshaping the industry, the major pain points telcos are experiencing as a result, and ways to address them, with 2 special tracks:
Track A: Network Optimization Strategies will focus on topics such as network virtualization, cloud and network-planning analytics, bandwidth optimization and outsourcing.
Track B: Service Revenue Opportunities will cover hot topics such as enterprise mobility, M2M/IoT, mobile payments, cloud-based services and video services.
The conference is followed by the 18th Annual Telecom Asia Awards – the region’s longest-running and most prestigious telecom industry awards in celebration of Telecom Asia’s 25th Anniversary.
