Telecom Council members representing major telcos and their telecom vendor partners meet monthly in Silicon Valley to review new technologies and a handful of telecom, wireless, and IoT companies and solutions coming out of the technology industry's entrepreneurial community across the globe.


Today's agenda starts with a private member meeting to meet a few new technology companies followed by a lunch session on Premium Networks and Differentiated Services which is open to non-members to attend. Special thanks to the members for running the Q&A at this meeting.

Companies introducing their technologies today are working on:

  • mHealth
  • IIoT Security
  • Intrapreneurship
  • Network Security


Startups with new technologies and innovation that rely on fixed or wireless telecom networks who are ready to scale with corporate partners and investors can apply for this or a future meeting here.


Now in a post "basic smartphone service" industry, telcos need to move into value added services. Facilitated by telecom networks becoming software-defined, managed by AI, and delivered in 5G and soon 6G air interfaces, the next set of opportunities are around differentiated services and premium networks. What are the associated services and apps. How will telcos manage to bill for these differentiated service levels? This lunchtime session includes an interactive discussion around the topic and will introduce a few startups innovating in this segment.


Monthly Innovation Review meetings are closed to non-members, the public and media. Guest passes for future members may be available on a fit and capacity basis. Regular participants include tech scouts, innovation strategy, partnership executives and corporate development delegates from:
