It would appear that telecoms must be changed after Covid - more demand, different ways of working, more time on Zoom, but this debate will argue not so, with the audience encouraged to challenge this view.
Covid-19 changes everything...or does it? On the one hand telecoms networks have generally coped well and no obvious changes of strategy or design are needed. Over the top tools have been available for years and seem fit for purpose. Revenues and costs for operators are broadly unchanged. On the other hand, different ways of working have been rapidly introduced, companies have shown how they can collaborate and rapidly innovate where needed and remote working appears to be much more effective than many had expected.
To kick us off, TTP will describe how they worked on the ventilator project, how effective this was and the advantages and disadvantages over the "old way". We will then set out an argument that, despite all of this, telecoms is unchanged, or perhaps even weakened and encourage those attending to challenge and offer alternative views.
