The ICT Practice of Frost & Sullivan will be hosting its 1st Annual Executive Summit on Mobile Broadband in India on May 3, 2012 in Gurgaon.
The Indian telecom landscape is rapidly shifting from voice calling to high-speed data transfer on the move. With the accelerating change, this sector is also facing a major challenge in executing effective and transparent policy; fiber connectivity, broadband penetration, and sizeable subscriber base. Operators need to collectively deliberate on successful identification and implementation of best-in-class services and business models in the mobile broadband space. It is very important for telecom operators to know the exclusive and intensive indications of how mobile broadband networks, services, and software platforms can be improved and progressed. To address these, The ICT Practice of Frost & Sullivan will be hosting its 1st Annual Executive Summit on Mobile Broadband in India on May 3, 2012 in Gurgaon. Since India is at inflection point in mobile broadband growth, the time is apt for a Summit which deep dives into the key issues and convenes the best minds in the telecom and broadband ecosystem under one roof.
R. Chandrasekhar, Chairman, Telecom Commission, and Secretary (T), Department of Telecommunications, is the Chief Guest for the Summit and will grace the launch of a Frost & Sullivan Whitepaper, titled "Mobile Broadband in India - 2012 and beyond." The Guest of Honor for the Summit is N. Ravi Shanker, Administrator and Head, Universal Service Obligation Fund.
Commenting on the Mobile Broadband Summit 2012, Abhishek Chauhan, Senior Consultant, ICT Practice, Frost & Sullivan, says, "There is a renewed interest and focus on broadband. The National Telecom Policy 2011 indicates its commitment toward improved broadband availability, given its potential to empower citizens and improve economic development. While the vision demands a synergistic push across technologies, mobile broadband has to be the key area of focus. To overcome the infrastructural constraints and low broadband penetration, widespread deployment of 3G/WiMAX/LTE is required to provide affordable access and make broadband a mass market proposition. With the things falling in place, mobile broadband is poised to grow at more than 100 percent CAGR for the next 5 years."
