In Business Model, Internet Access, Mobile, Spectrum Futures Conference

Are you ready for cataclysmic change in the telecom industry? Do you want to learn what is coming and what you need to do, right now, to survive a huge industry shift? If so, then PTC’s “industry transformation boot camp” is for you

You might wonder why. Simply, you might not recognize the industry in just seven years, and it is time to get ready. How different will it be? Globally, service providers might shrink from 800 to just 105, as soon as 2025, Bell Labs predicts.

Other analysts believe the Southeast Asia business case will not support more than one mobile facilities provider. Yet others believe surviving “telcos” will earn significant revenues other than access, or will not be in business.

So, for the first time, PTC has joined two separate educational events to create an ”industry transformation boot camp”  that aims to address the issues head on, explain why the changes are coming, and suggest what has to be done.

The week-long instructional program will acquaint C-level executives with the key reasons why such huge change is coming. Just as important, mid-career telecom professionals will learn how to develop skills they will need to advance their careers, as well as equip them with 5G/mobile and telecom business fundamentals.

To be held in Bangkok, from 18 September through 22 September, the training includes certificates of completion for two days of 5G training and three days of instruction on the fundamentals of the telecom business.

Taught by teams of international instructors with dozens to scores of years of experience each, training week offers an intensive but compact framework for understanding:

  • Industry economics and key trends
  • Evolution of the mobile and fixed industry segments
  • Problem-solving exercises to acquaint you with C-level challenges
  • How C-level executives approach their key business problems
  • What 5G is and what it means for the future of the telecom business

Specifically designed to acquaint up-and-coming professionals with the perspective they will need as they move up the ranks, taught by executives who have founded and run companies, and themselves “moved up the ranks” of some of the biggest firms, globally.
