Dialing back Telecoms: How to drive our industry back towards an open ecosystem.
Wed, Jul 15th
Communication as a core principle is being able to get ideas out there. However, there is a risk that if we’re not aware of some of the trends being taken up, we’ll end up finding ourselves back to a walled garden. Telecoms as an industry has historically been one of the most open ecosystems with interoperability being achievable. We’re now in a position where this industry has been leapfrogged by huge strives in the Cloud marketplace, to completely revolutionize the interconnectivity of systems.
