Telco 2.0 World event - 6-7 May, Nice, France

We’re delighted that the next Telco 2.0 event (our ‘world’ event) will be co-located with the TMForum’s Management World event. As such Telco 2.0 will take place on 6-7 May in Nice (South of France). It will follow a similar format to the November event (with a few new features), but will share a morning plenary with TMForum (2500 people).

Our research agenda for 2009 will inform the design and agenda of the event. In summary, we will be focusing on these areas:

Services:
• Digital Kids/Generation Y - how to retail to the next generation of consumers
• Online Video Distribution - how to re-incentivise the value chain
• Enterprise 2.0 - reinventing Customer Contact and Management

Enablers:
• Open API commercial model - agreeing an industry framework: strategy, developers, customer data
• Devices - Mobile, Consumer Premises Equipment

Infrastructure:
• Telco 2.0 Reference Architecture - Exploiting Customer Data (User profiles and preferences), OSS/BSS (on demand), Network Provisioning/Activation (on demand)
