    How to monetise the 5G experience

    906 views - Posted May 13 by Payam Taaghol CEO - MYCOM-OSI

    As 5G rollouts begin in earnest, significant questions remain as to how the business model will stack-up for next generation networks. It’s actually a little shocking that despite investing billions in spectrum and billions more in network buildout, this is still even a question.  We kno...

    Telco Cloud – The 4 immutable laws

    1,136 views - Posted May 9 by Mounir Ladki President and CTO - MYCOM OSI

    A strategic digital transformation and migration of infrastructure to the cloud can cut a CSP’s IT costs by up to 31 percent. This isn’t a number I’ve made up. This is the judgement of 3 UK’s director of IT transformation, speaking at their media and analyst event last w...

    Digitalization – What We Thought is What We Now Know

    1,889 views - Posted April 24 by Faisal Ishaq Director of Global Channels and Partners - Sigma Systems

    There’s been a lot of buzz about Ericsson’s recent announcement regarding the write-down of their next generation BSS Revenue Manager solution. Lots of analysis, lots of reasoning, but I haven’t seen anything that actually looks at the logic behind what happened. Let’s s...

    2,537 views - Posted April 24 by Glenn Gibson VP Marketing - Sigma Systems

    Well, another Mobile World Congress has come and gone, another badge put to rest reminding me of how many years I’ve been at this game. As grueling as it can be, I’m quite fond of the ritual descent upon Barcelona and the demanding pace and non-stop interaction with all sorts of people (...

    The Time is NOW to Figure Out 5G Monetization

    6,930 views - Posted February 15 by Stephen Krajewski Director Product Marketing - Sigma Systems

    I was lucky enough to attend the Realise 5G event last week in London, a kickoff for the summit in April 2019 to put momentum behind the rollout and adoption of 5G in the United Kingdom. The organizers brought together a lively and opinionated group of people – always a good combinat...

    The GSMA Mobile Economy Europe Report 2018: Industry challenges

    10,737 views - Posted December 20, 2018 by Andrew Baldock Product Marketing Manager - MYCOM OSI

    The annual GSMA Mobile Economy Europe paints a mixed picture for CSPs, with continuing consolidation helping to stabilize the competitive landscape, but saturation in B2C pointing to slow growth in traditional revenue streams. The silver lining however, is a faster than expected adoption of 5G and a...

    From AI to Customer Satisfaction in 5 ways

    14,843 views - Posted September 20, 2018 by Deren Akpinar Marketing Director - Etiya

    Artificial Intelligence (AI) is not only going to profoundly change that way in which service providers operate their networks and do business, but it is also going to dramatically change the way they interact with their customers. In fact, using AI to enhance interactions with customers is the sing...

    Telcos need an OTT strategy to regain lost ground

    14,641 views - Posted September 18, 2018 by Shashank Venkat Consultant - Cerillion

    It is somewhat ironic that Communications Services Providers (CSPs) are struggling with digital transformation, when in reality, their infrastructure is the backbone for other sectors to ramp up their own digital transformation efforts. With change in consumer behaviour prompted by the new breed of ...

    Cleaning out the Smart City Desk Drawer

    14,906 views - Posted August 29, 2018 by Drew Jordan Solutions Architect, Director - Sigma Systems

    Will AI end fraud in telecoms?

    23,147 views - Posted August 29, 2018 by Ali Durmus Founding Partner, Executive Committee Member - Etiya

    Fraud is, unfortunately, still rife throughout the telecommunications industry, and has previously proved remarkably resistant to efforts to stamp it out.  Indeed, the TM Forum says fraud remains one of the most significant threats to operator margins and security today, noting that fraud at...

    AI augmentation is the future

    19,611 views - Posted August 28, 2018 by Aaron Boasman - Patel Vice President, AI & Customer Experience - TM Forum

    A study from Oracle and Future Workplace shows that 93% of people would trust orders from a robot at work, while all the respondents agreed that artificial intelligence (AI) will have a positive impact on their organizations. This comes on the heels of my last blog, in which I discussed w...

    Creating unique customer experience design with digital twins

    13,641 views - Posted August 2, 2018 by Deren Akpinar Marketing Director - Etiya

    When we hear the term “good old days” we imagine the “simpler” times with no smart phones or social media, when consumerism was at its lowest due to the limited choice of goods and services on offer.   During that period, when the options were limited and preferences w...
