The only event for Telco Cloud providers & their channel partners returning to London for a 6th year!
With 25% growth in attendance and 55% decision makers, the 6th Telco Cloud is by far the only meeting place for all the key telco cloud providers and their channel partners to network and discuss their challenges and the way forward.
At the Forum telco executives once again were looking for new ways and opportunities to help businesses achieve process efficiencies and deliver cost reduction through continued migration to cloud solutions. And it’s not an easy task with the rising competition amongst cloud service providers.
The Telco Cloud expert speaker panel helped clarify the landscape and shed away the fear through ground breaking presentations and advice! Just to name a few – Telefonica, Microsoft, Google, Turkcell, Telecom Italia, Deutsche Telekom, Amazon WS, Proximus, Verizon and many more.
