Triple play is the driving competitive force behind the current and future plans of service providers of all types-- incumbent Telcos, ISPs, Cable MSOs, Mobile Carriers, and CLECs all realize that the service provider who provides the most compelling and cost-effective bundle of voice-video-data will win the war. In short, triple play can reduce customer churn, improve ARPU, reduce operational costs, and ultimately will be the lynchpin for service provider survival during this hyper-competitive era.
Last year’s Triple Play Symposium (held in San Jose and New York) proved to be the premier forum for learning and exchanging ideas about the technology and business model behind successful triple play deployments. Triple play decision makers and technologists from leading service providers converged to discuss how to effectively make the business and technical decisions that will be the difference between success and mere survival.
This year the Triple Play Symposium is expanding with the addition of a Paris venue. Europe continues to be the most advanced and competitive market for triple play deployments, and the cross-Atlantic learning for all participants should be invaluable.
