The must-see panel at NCTC’s The Independent Show 2022 is undoubtedly The Impact of Industry Evolution. On Monday, July 25, Tom Williams, Chief Technology Officer at Schurz Communications, and other industry experts will take a close look at how industry changes are specifically impacting operations, technology roadmaps, staffing, product development, and the supply chain.
Tom began his career in the cable industry at Scientific-Atlanta as an R&D engineer developing and deploying the first digital set-top boxes, and now he drives the technology strategy for Schurz Communications. Driven by his passion for technologies that propel the future of the telecommunications industry, Tom recently stated on LinkedIn that his mantra for companies in this industry is “Evolve or die,” meaning businesses that don’t evolve will die. Tom is sure to bring valuable insight to this year’s panel discussion at The Independent Show 2022.
With the substantial upheaval to the status quo over the last few years, we expect panelists will have a lot to say at NCTC’s The Independent Show 2022 about the impact of evolution in the industry. Thought leaders estimate that today’s telecommunications service providers have less than nine months to fundamentally change their current market positioning to survive and thrive in the years to come.
If 2021 demanded we question the way we work, 2022 demands we double down on the right technology investments. As C-level telecom executives tackle goals for this year and beyond, they will face an onslaught of priorities ranging from the basic needs of regulatory compliancy to higher-level priorities like network longevity, how to secure their business, and revenue growth.
We looked at the trends in telecom over the past few years, which have been accelerated by the global COVID-19 pandemic, to give service providers guidance on how to meet their customers demand for digital services. Together, these strategic trends will enable you to maximize revenue creation and enhance digital capabilities to win business and market share.
This is an important topic, so be sure to attend The Impact of Industry Evolution panel to learn what other trends industry leaders are seeing, and download our free white paper for more.
Schurz Communications saw the writing in the clouds, so to speak, and announced this week their move to a new innovative, in-demand, high margin unified communication (UC) services to expand its market. Seeing customers’ growing appetite for leading-edge voice-first UC services, and their desire to receive those services from a trusted broadband provider, Schurz looked for a solution that was easy to deploy and manage and would enable Schurz to quickly expand and evolve its service offerings.
By transforming their network with Alianza, Schurz will be able to unlock and generate new revenue from their existing broadband services customer base — all while simplifying its back-end operations.
The Alianza team will be in full force at The Independent Show 2022 event, sharing the best way for communication service providers to transform their networks and accelerate growth. Meet with us at booth #427 on July 25 and 26. We can’t wait to see you there!
