Mon. March 12| 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM | 202
An ecosystem battle is underway as service providers and operators alike move closer to end-users. Lower margins on bandwidth and the shift to HTS now force the hands of operators to build value and appease investors. However, this move down the chain means stepping on the toes of service providers and forever altering the state of play. How will this battle play out and who wins and who loses? Which applications are the ripest for ecosystem battles? Will vertical consolidation occur, and what does this mean for end customers? And what will the new state of play mean for investors? This critical session will explore these issues and plot the path forward for the ecosystem of the future.
