Voice & Messaging 2.0: Vodafone and DTAG to discuss RCSe 'OTT defence play'
Cenk Serdar, Data & Communications Services Director, Vodafone Group, and Dr Rainer Deutschmann, SVP Core Telco Products at Deutsche Telekom will bring to life the new RCSe voice/messaging 'open platform' by discussing different aspects and applications of it at our New Digital Economics event in London, on the 9-10 November. RCSe is in part a big industry play to defend against so-called 'OTT' players.
They will be joined on the Voice & Messaging 2.0 panel in the Telco 2.0 session by Morten Sorby (EVP Corporate Development, Telenor Group) and Andreas Bernstrom (CEO, Rebtel) to discuss and debate this topic within the context of a 'logical framework' that the Telco 2.0 team is currently preparing.
In the meantime, we recommend readers check out Etisalat's new RCS-like service ePlus, launched last week at Gitex in Dubai. The Telco 2.0 team find this very interesting - it potentially takes RCSe to the next level. Etisalat's senior executives will also be participating in our London event.
