VIDEO AXIS CORP EDITION 2019
Nearly every industry today is facing technology disruption, and telecom has been one of the most impacted. Revenues from telecom’s core businesses - voice calls, SMS, data, and media services - are being squeezed as average revenue per user (ARPU) is falling and customer churn is increasing. The current telecom situation is very challenging and requires creative new ideas and business initiatives for operators to succeed and remain relevant.
In Israel, over 200 startups operate in the telecom space providing unique solutions and new business models for telecom operators. In addition, hundreds of other startups from fintech, digital health, e-commerce, cyber security, IOT, cloud, automotive and many other sectors are actively working with telecom operators in new ways. This event will bring together both sides - telecom corporations and startups - to help solve the most pressing challenges in the telecom industry and create new business and investment opportunities.
