“92% of telco practitioners say that re-thinking the strategic role of the operator in a world of IP-based convergence’ is a key priority.” Telco 2.0™ Market Study, May 2006.


IP is changing the game. The lines between industries are blurring and everyone is after the same consumers. The vertically integrated business model in under attack from all sides: tougher regulation, new technology (most notably VoIP and open spectrum), disintermediatory new entrants, and advancing customer expectations. This is causing disruption in the telco industry - for operators, their suppliers and partners. The key question is: How do we make money in this new world?

Part of a new industry initiative, and based on an exhaustive programme of research and analysis, the Telco 2.0™ Industry Brainstorm focuses on the following burning issues:

  1. How to clarify the opportunities and threats to profitability across the value chain (from the point of view of traditional Operators, VNOs/Disruptors, ISPs, Media players, IT and Device Manufacturers).
  1. How to make money from:
    • Voice & Messaging 2.0Telephony/SMS meet Skype/Yahoo
