Metaswitch Customers and Partners Seek the "Power of M" to Modernize, Monetize and Mobilize Telecom Networks
Forum attendees migrate to Las Vegas to discuss telecom trends, new service delivery models and regulatory reform
LAS VEGAS -- September 28, 2011 -- Metaswitch’s "meeting of the minds" is set to converge on Las Vegas October 3-6, with more than eight hundred representatives from service providers and equipment vendors exploring the "Power of M" at the Metaswitch Forum 2011. Sharing the common goal of defining a successful business strategy amidst a climate of economic and regulatory uncertainty, attendees will explore ways to modernize, monetize and mobilize their portfolios in preparation for a new era of service delivery. In its eighth year, the Forum promises a compelling lineup of topics and speakers discussing the metamorphosis of carrier networks and the need to abandon traditional thinking and outmoded business models.
A recent pre-Forum survey of registered attendees reveals that more than ever, operators are concerned about competitive threats from OTT providers, a lack of service differentiation and innovation, the impact of mobility on modern services and expected fallout from regulatory changes. In fact, more than 68% of those surveyed indicated that delivering new business models is critical for sustaining business.
"The Power of M is more than a catchy theme – it’s a reminder of the core functions that operators should build on to stay competitive in this rapidly changing market," said Steve Gleave, vice president of marketing at Metaswitch. "At the Forum, Metaswitch and our partners will dive deeper into the ideas and innovation that can drive new strategies for success."
The conference will be enhanced by a keynote presentation from Richard Noble, former holder of the world’s land speed record, who will link his latest project, the BloodhoundSSC - a car that aims to pass the 1000 mph mark – to common challenges facing all communication service providers.
The sold-out Expo will feature 50 partner exhibitors, including Platinum Sponsor ADTRAN, Business Services Sponsor NETXUSA, Gold Sponsors Aastra, Panasonic and Polycom and Silver Sponsors Audiocodes, Calix, Cisco, Cordell, Dasan Networks, Edgewater Networks and ONEACCESS.
