Overcoming business model challenges, BSS/OSS integration and identifying international expansion strategies, the sister event to the successful Digital Services World Congress, is the only exclusive meeting place for operators and OTTs in the Asia Pacific region. With the OTT player here to stay, mobile network operators have woken up to the fact that co-operation is necessary, and both operators and OTTs recognise that partnerships will advantage them both. However, competition still exists and how partnerships fit in with the telco’s competing digital services, is a critical question, addressed over the two days. A combination of the operator’s network management and customer reach, and the OTT’s programming and design capabilities, will bring ROI for both parties yet the steps to getting to that profitable working relationship are still unclear. Join 120+ telecom operators, OTTs and their partners within the banking, gaming, music, content and digital media sectors to identify the winning business models, approaches and technologies needed to break down the lack of partner certainty and commitment that currently threatens the monetisation of OTT communications.
