Summary of WebRTC Paris

WebRTC Paris is a 3 day event, focused on the European WebRTC community. Compared to the US events it shows Europe is as, if not more innovative than North America, has a lot less hype, and is definitely more focused on the practical realities of implementation. An important theme that came out from both Telcos and […]

Telecom APIs Event 2014: Go To Market is Critical

Even though we’ve had three Telecom API events this year: June in Munich, this one in Oct in London, and the Service Delivery Innovation Summit in London in Sept (previously known as the SDP Global Summit) the event ended up being busier than expected with a relatively high % of telcos. I ran a pre-conference […]

SDP World Summit and Broadband World Forum

We’re reaching an interesting stage in operators’ attempts to remain relevant to customers beyond voice and internet access, which still remains a nice business, yet commoditization continues, albeit at a slower pace than most have predicted.  The slow pace shows the strength of state-granted duopolies / oligopolies.  Though we’re seeing a mounting chorus in the […]

IMS World Forum: Quick Summary

The IMS World Forum was a packed event, with 250+ attendees, up over 20% compared to last year.  At first sight it’s fair to ask, why is a conference required on IMS, isn’t it old-hat?  That’s just the point, IMS is becoming main stream so the question is not about whether or not to deploy, […]
