“It’s revolution not evolution. Evolution you can buy; revolution you have to do” 

Philippe Ensarguet, CTO, Orange Business Services &
Winner of the Mobile Europe CTO of the Year: Trailblazer Award 2021

For many operators, disaggregation and integration is the name of the game from end to end of their infrastructure. The abundance of new capabilities and technologies is turning them into techcos, looking to differentiate their services and products on top of common, standardised foundations. From network automation to AI and analytics, from IoT to network slicing, and from going cloud native to exploring the edge there are so many opportunities and challenges.

Join the leading thinkers – and executors – in our industry to debate what we are doing and what we need to do to arrive at the techco destination.
