Bringing value to private networks – Digital Symposium

The role of the telco in enterprise digital transformation continues to be a key source of growth for the service provider industry. Delivering on this growth opportunity is made more challenging by the perception that they are still primarily seen as connectivity suppliers, rather than solution suppliers, making partnerships difficult to develop.

This symposium will provide you with an opportunity to present alongside and in front of senior telco representatives working on their positioning and proposition for their target enterprise customers.

You will have the chance to share your expertise to help telcos overcome this challenge, understand, and meet enterprise requirements, create business cases beyond the connectivity-only model, compete with hyperscalers, develop the killer app, and embrace high-security standards.
