The Cloud and the Customer: Solutions for the Rural Carrier
Damian Sazama, VP-Corporate & Product Marketing, Interop Technologies
The personal cloud is quickly demoting the PC to just another device as consumers adopt the cloud as their computing hub. Cloud-based services mean customers can choose different IP-based telephony, videoconferencing and messaging providers so the fixed or mobile broadband provider is not necessarily the cloud-based services provider. Rural telcos must create bundles and service packages that deliver a mix of traditional and cloud-based services with a local touch to fend off competition and grow revenues. This session will cover cloud-based services ideally suited for the rural provider. David Byrd, CMO and VP Channel Sales, ANPI
