There’s no denying that mobile video has become the killer app for subscribers. But as mobile operators plan to deploy 5G networks, it is poised to become a network killer as well.
With the rise of OTT proprietary protocols, most video traffic today is encrypted. By the end of 2018, video is expected to account for 62 percent of all mobile traffic, with up to 50 percent of it in HD format. As a result, operators are struggling to manage Quality of Experience (QoE). With the increased speed enabled by 5G, subscribers’ appetite for mobile video will only accelerate, making this situation worse and leading to increased churn.
A gathering of minds
In order to provide a productive environment where operators can discuss these challenges and share best practices, we established the Mobile Video Industry Council (MVIC), a gathering of thought leaders and innovators at an exclusive event in London on October 18. It will be a gathering of minds – not PowerPoint slides!
This exclusive event for mobile operators will explore strategies, the latest trends, and the impact that mobile video will have on 5G networks and beyond. And you can be a part of it.
Here are the top four reasons why you need to be there:
- Connect with your peers — This gathering of mobile operator personnel and industry influencers will allow you to network with key players who are facing similar challenges. Engage in relevant discussions and expand your professional network.
