Summit focuses on converged services

Analyst firm Informa will be hosting a one-day co-located seminar at CTIA that will focus on converged services. Program chair and Inform research director Gavin Whitechurch says that the seminar will focus on the benefits of converged services from both the consumer and enterprise perspective.

The conference, which will take place on March 31 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, will feature presentations from operators such as BT Group, Rogers Wireless, Sprint Nextel, T-Mobile and Brazil Telecom. In addition, vendors such as Airvana, and Nextpoint Networks will participate, along with associations such as Femto Forum and the IMS Forum.

Whitechurch says that Informa expects about 100 to 150 participants and a mix of attendees from both operators and vendors. He expects lots of discussion of femtocells, which are a hot topic right now, particularly in Europe.
