Panel Discussion

How should the telecom industry best harness the innovation and R&D that is being undertaken around the world? What areas are most important and how can this work be brought into commercial service? Is it enough for telcos to leave the heavy lifting to their vendor partners, or should they be doing more in terms of investment, support and in-house development? Is a techco model reliant upon technology ownership? When does collaboration impede competition? And how do telcos focus on the evolving digital service requirements, rather than chasing technology advances?
