But it’s a long slog from Silicon Valley to Singapore. Many of you might not have the ability to make it to this show.

      That's why The Telecom Council puts together these roundtable events after large tradeshows - so

      Mobile advertising is for real, money will be made and winners will emerge. That’s a reliable prediction. And mobile advertising will find itself increasingly relevant as it works its way into many different types of content, from banners, text trailers, mobile video, LBS, and even worked its way into voice recently.

      With the downgrading of banners, the future advertising successes will increasingly depend on context, and a mobile phone is a great device for surmising the “presence” state of

      Mobile telecom networks have been built with the same basic topology since their emergence in the late 80s, with towers erected at the center of (hopefully) overlapping cells. Through the 90s networks were expanded for better coverage, and afterwards expanded for better capacity, but after almost 20 years, the same basic architecture still rules. But it’s different in the advanced markets of Korea and Japan, where repeaters and picocells rule the day, and signals reach even into subway tunnels.

Real products launched into the market don’t just blur the lines between TV and PC, but in fact make it increasingly clear that any screen is fair game for any content, and the service will come from both broadcast, unicast, and from within the home.

      Now that the mobile consumer has arrived, the pressure is on content creators, aggregators and distributors to deliver a business model that works. Mobile Entertainment, a "promising" market for years, has traditionally failed to deliver. We've been hearing about the upcoming explosion of mobile video for half a decade, but the unicast/capacity and broadcast/control paradoxes have prevented success. Mobile music hasn't taken off due to carrier control, rights issues, high prices, and

      One of the biggest ongoing challenges for telecom entrepreneurs is navigating the shifting, complex ecosystem. With no single model for success, our entrepreneurs have to make and remake strategic decisions to refine their business model and keep pace with change. One of the key benefits of locating in Silicon Valley is being able to be patched-in to the fabric of the ecosystem, and to be aware of the shifts early. We benefit both from a critical mass of telecom companies and the collaborative

      In recent years, handsets have proven the unique ability to actually churn customers away from competing carriers. That makes them more powerful than network quality, footprint, content, and services. And this
