Management World Americas keynote perspectives will look at new business models from different perspectives and discuss innovative ways of making money. Communication, MVNO and 2-sided business models will be discussed in order to understand the extended value chain and who will be a friend or foe. The session will then examine the delivery of new services as a way moving from surviving to thriving. The focus will be on new ways of saving money and generating revenue with the spotlight on implementation and operational excellence, the influence of the macro environment and new digital media.
Power consumption is a critical component of the network infrastructure of mobile operators. However, between 2 to 3 billion people – roughly one-third of the world’s population – are living in energy poverty, and more than 99 percent of people without electricity live in developing regions. But saving energy is not the sole preserve of developing nations. In developed countries, the rising cost of energy, and the realisation of the environmental implications, means that operators are looking to save money wherever possible.
Given that Telecom & Mobile are among the worst performing sectors in any stock market, the future looks to be quite a challenge for the world’s Telcos.

TelecomTV caught up with the speakers and facilitators attempting to foresee Telcos’ futures.
