Communications expertise is hot property once again: Facebook bought Whatsapp for $19B, Snapchat snapped up AddLive before anyone else realized how great their service was. Emerging service providers and power players alike have embraced VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) while newer solutions such as WebRTC (Real Time Communications) happen to make inroads in the telecommunications sector. Additionally, leading network operators are gearing up for VoLTE (Voice over Long Term Evolution) in a world that is increasingly dominated by mobile experiences and the cloud’s pervasiveness and ubiquity.
Cloud communications thrive where IP (Internet Protocol), cloud computing and telecommunications technologies collide, disrupt and release new value. The impact is clearly revolutionary and its effects are only just starting to be felt. Adding communications to any application, service and business process is creating engaging experiences: just look at Airbnb and Uber in their use of communications; and Amazon Mayday is transforming customer support.
Has the web won in telecommunications? Many network infrastructure and interoperability challenges remain while new other start to surface; and critically customers expect communications just to connect where reloading a browser window to get a call working is not acceptable.
The cloud communications vision is compelling, it is a revolution in the making. But, there are many challenges ahead. Join us in Chicago, one of the world’s leading hubs of cloud computing infrastructure and digital services as our speakers and panel of experts delve behind the curtain and peel away the layers of hype and confusion.
