"Even as we change our name to TelcoVision, we remain dedicated to the market that we've served for over a decade – broadband network service providers," said Carol Wilson, Program Chairwoman, TelcoVision. "While public focus often centers on the largest telecom players, there are hundreds of medium and small operators who are not only driving innovation and collectively purchasing large volumes of equipment and software, but also playing a significant role in the broadband future of the U.S. To meet their changing needs, TelcoVision will encompass video services, wireless options and business opportunities such as Ethernet and cloud, delivering the latest information on technology, business strategies and market success stories."
TelcoVision will cover and expand on the following:
- Business service opportunities in Ethernet, managed, hosted and cloud services, including practical guides on how to develop and sell new services, identifying opportunities to partner and outsource.
- Wireless service opportunities for telcos, including those with and without spectrum, through partnerships, wireless backhaul networks, small cell and Wi-Fi offload, mobile device management and more.
- New markets like distance learning, telemedicine, remote energy management/smart grid, including focused information on telco partnership opportunities and funding support.
- Economic development outlook and the role it plays in developing and funding the expansion of rural networks.
- New network transformation trends, such as the all-IP network, developing and connecting data centers, and software-defined networks specifically targeted for rural telcos.
- Back office transformation trends such as the latest in service provider IT and how network operations can be enhanced to both cut costs and enable more rapid delivery of new services.
