Telco & Media Innovation Forum

Enabling the future

This forum navigated the challenges and opportunities as traditional telcos transition to digital players and broaden their offerings by adding content assets and partner with content providers.

Thought-provoking industry thinkers debated and discussed with an invited C-level audience from across the telco, mobile and BME sectors, providing insight into the future as the telco and media industries become more entwined than ever before.

2018 Programme

Evolution to 5G is only part of the story as traditional telcos transition to digital players and they are broadening their offering by adding content assets and/or partnering with content providers. This transition comes with its own challenges however as network upgrades need to be carefully managed as demand for streaming content onto mobile devices grows. The question of where the content comes from needs to be looked as telcos launch their own OTT services to try and differentiate and stay competitive.
