Our Service Provider Innovation Forum, aka SPIF, is for carriers, network operators, telcos, and CSPs who are actively scouting for innovation and deployment-ready communications startups - whether for new partners, vendors, or investment opportunities. Membership is by invitation only.
Monthly SPIF meetings, which started over 20 years ago in 2000, include discussions led by SPIF members or invited guest speakers on topics across the communications landscape of mutual interest to global telcos. These private meetings are generally followed by a host of startup introductions as part of Telecom Council’s Innovation Review meetings.
Topics and introductions run across IoT and devices, core networking and infrastructure, enterprise and consumer services, and often technologies and companies on edge of the communications industry - like AI/ML, AR/VR/xR, entertainment & sport, cars and cities, and the ever growing number of internet connected products, services, and tools.
Agenda and attendee list for all past Telecom Council meetings are available through our calendar page.
