As more and more devices get connected to telco networks (estimates are around 850 million by 2016), there will be an increased demand for complete IT solutions that can automatically provision services, monitor, analyze and control the connected devices. There will also be a pressing need to collect, fuse and act on real time data.
On the consumer side of the telecom industry, there are huge challenges confronting wireless telcos.? Will they be able to capitalize on new value added services or just be purveyors of dumb pipes that are used by others to make money?? What types of new services or markets might telcos enter and will they be able to monetize and gain from emerging technologies that others are deploying? For example, can telcos make money from home security monitoring, telemedicine/e-health, life style automation or other “connected home” types of services? What are consumers’ rights on the data collected from customer premises? How is privacy of a consumer ensured in the emerging ubiquitous connected world of which residences are the end points?
To ensure future growth and stability for M2M (Machine to Machine) communications and mobile broadband (3G/4G), telcos need to think ahead to anticipate and cope with the expected of mobile data traffic as well as the management of millions more end points. Mike Finegan will reveal how Sprint will enable M2M communications with its network resident, “purpose built” platform. He’ll also identify some very interesting M2M applications.
Sumeet Ahuja will shed light on the different and new areas of opportunity that AT&T is entering and making strategic investments in. Also, he will share observations on user behaviors, patterns and trends and rise of non-traditional players who are challenging telco revenues streams.
