A keynote speech at the 2012 Canadian Telecom Summit discussed how the latest innovations will open up new frontiers and shape the future of the telecommunications sector.
In his keynote presentation for the 2012 Canadian Telecom Summit, Dean Prevost, president, Allstream, discussed why now is the time to be excited about the future of telecommunications. He cited new developments such as cloud, big data, IPv6 and mobility as examples of areas that are “opening up new frontiers for providing innovative services to help our business customers improve IT performance, boost workforce productivity and manage costs.”
In addition to these innovations, Prevost believes that the strength of the Canadian economy will bode well for the future of the telecommunications industry.
“Today we are in a global sea of non-stop innovation when it comes to networks and technology – and you know what they say about a rising tide,” said Prevost. “And given how comparatively well the Canadian economy has performed during the global turbulence of recent years – and the recovery we hope is gathering steam in the US – there is justification for thinking that the future is even brighter for us in our industry in Canada.”
The theme for the 2012 Canadian Telecom Summit was Competition and Innovation: Celebrating Our Legacy, Developing the Future. More than 500 leaders in the telecom, broadcast and IT industries gathered at the Toronto Congress Centre from June 4-6 to discuss the key issues and trends that will impact this critical sector of the economy.
