OPENING KEYNOTE PANEL: EUROPE’S 2020 CARRIER MARKET
WHEN THE COMPETITION DISAPPEARS – HOW MUCH M&A CAN THE EASTERN EUROPEAN TELCO MARKET HANDLE?

It’s understandable why so many Eastern European incumbents are looking to join forces with other key regional carriers. In a wholesale market of falling voice prices and OTTs changing the telecommunications landscape, M&A’s can provide carriers with the opportunity to expand their product scope, reach geographical locations previously off limits to them and ultimately increase revenue.

• How are Deutsche Telekom ICSS steering the Eastern European M&Amarket? 
• Why does this region attract so much M&A activity? 
• What lessons can be learnt from key success stories and memorable failures with recent M&A’s? 
• With market consolidation set to continue, how are M&A’s changing the industry outlook from an Eastern European angle and on an international level?
• What further future impacts will M&A’s have and what can we predict from the market going forward?

WHAT IS THE MAGIC FORMULA FOR OTTS TO BUILD AND ESTABLISH A SUCCESSFUL PLATFORM WITHIN THE EASTERN EUROPEAN REGION? 

It’s hard to shy away from the transformational impact that OTTs have had on the industry. The Eastern European region lays fruit to many untapped opportunities that OTTs can take advantage of and capitalise off. But how can OTTs ensure a seamlessly effortless entrance into the region while capturing the high capacity connections they require?

• What challenges does Eastern Europe pose for OTT business vs other international markets?
• What lessons can be learnt off the back of the success of OTT rollouts in theUS?
• What support can data centres provide OTTs who aim to penetrate the Eastern European market?
• Is collaboration between OTTs & carriers the answer in helping both to expand and increase revenue?
• What does the 2020 stance for OTT penetration look like across Europe and the wider international market?

CONNECTING CONTINENTS: WHAT ROLE DO SUBMARINE & TERRESTRIAL CABLES PLAY IN UNITING EUROPEAN & ASIAN CARRIER MARKETS?

The importance of high capacity and low latency transit routes connecting Europe and Asia in the carrier market are paramount to bothend-users and carriers.  March 2017 will see the Asia Africa Europe -1(AAE-1) consortium completing construction and going live which is expected to transcend connections between the East and West into a new era. Ultimately, these advances have opened up industry discussion about the impact they have had in connecting these two continents and what’s next for the constantly emerging Eurasian wholesale carrier market. 

• How vital is ongoing investment in submarine and terrestrial cables connecting Europe and Asia for the wider carrier community?
• How prepared are cables that connect the East to the West for the expected surge in demand in capacity?
• How critically important has the AAE-1 been for developing the connection between the two continents?
• In the face of monumental traffic growth between Europe and Asia what would the proposed Arctic Fibre Cable mean to the industry in creating new capacity?
• In what way can Eastern European countries act as doorway for creating a more cohesive European and Asian wholesale market?
• How is the network of submarine and terrestrial cables connecting the East and West expected to evolve and expand over the next decade?
