The Next X: How will the Facebook or Skype of the future shape the wholesale telecom industry?
A high-energy, inspirational roller-coaster ride into the dark void we call the future. Using insights from around the world in different
industries, futurologist Magnus Lindkvist will try to answer the question "what's next for telecom wholesale players?" What kind of
applications are lurking in labs and garages right now? What dividends do the laws of Metcalfe and Moore have left in them? What
are the next generation of consumers eager to do and see and what kind of capacity will they need? These are just some of the
questions inspiring this thought-provoking keynote talk. Welcome to the future...today.
