Concluding Remarks from the Chairman of the Technical Programme Committee
In my welcome message I invited you to join us at ICIN 2013 to share knowledge and ideas for unlocking value from the networks. I hope that those of you who attended the conference have all learned something and increased your understanding and awareness of topical issues connected to the transformation of Telcos’ networks and real-time communications.
Since 1989, the ICIN series of conference have been an unparalleled opportunity to discuss solutions for making Telcos’ networks ever-increasingly smarter and how to develop and deliver smarter services on top of them. Technologies and business models have dramatically changed over the last two decades, but some key architectural concepts survived – for example, I’m sure that some of you already noticed that SDN looks like a reminiscence of Intelligent Networks. This makes the ICIN community well placed to understand the strengths and pitfalls of new and emerging technology trends before they become widely recognized.
ICIN is well-known for its thought-provoking presentations on emerging technologies and industry trends impacting communications services. This time, I asked Dean Bubley from Disruptive Analysis and Roberto Minerva from Telecom Italia’s Future Centre to summarize the conference discussions with a personal perspective. I hope that their summaries will convince you that ICIN certainly deserves its reputation and will make you want to join us at ICIN 2014.
