Telecom's New Core Values

The communications networking and services industry not only needs to update its own core technology, processes and businesses models but faces increasing competition from major rivals that have a different set of values.

This year's 2020 Vision Executive Summit will explore how communications service providers are adapting, what they still need to achieve and how external pressures might be clouding their judgement.
