A CSP decision maker’s guide to DTW23 – Ignite

Communications Service Providers (CSPs) are at an inflection point, with leaders and their teams asking questions and looking at news ways to drive innovation and unlock greater value for their customers and business, and grappling with tough questions:

How can I leverage generative AI (gen AI) as a centerpiece for customer innovation? 

How can I drive network monetization and subscriber growth potential? 

How can I build cloud-resilient, efficient, and scalable network infrastructure that flattens the cost curve?  

From 19-21 September 2023, CSP decision makers and practitioners will have the opportunity to harness the collective ingenuity, innovation, and collaboration across the telecommunications community at TM Forum’s DTW23 – Ignite event in Copenhagen. 

The event spans five tracks, 600 companies, 250 speakers, and 55 catalyst programs; the Google Cloud telecommunications team will be there to help answer burning questions from CSP decision makers on how to leverage the latest in AI, cloud-native software, and cloud infrastructure. 

We’re especially excited to collaborate with partners and customers on a variety of sessions and demos highlighting solutions and lessons learned to help transform CSPs organizations with gen AI, including:

Building more sustainable networks

Transforming customer/employee experiences

Improving network planning and operations

Delivering advertising and content/creative assistance

Enhancing enterprise IT functions

Optimizing back-office functions

In addition to sessions and demos, DTW will be showcasing 55 catalyst programs, rapid-fire co-created solutions, available for hands-on and demos, that will address some of the industry’s biggest challenges validated by communications service providers and industry stakeholders. Teams delivering these projects and solutions leverage key TM Forum best practices and standards to ensure scalability, reuse across multiple applications, and reduced costs and risk. Google Cloud is proud to collaborate with partners and customers on 2 catalysts solving problems including reducing churn with gen AI and enabling sustainable and efficient radio access networks (see more below).

We look forward to sharing what we’ve learned with you throughout the show through expert, customer, and partner led sessions, demos, and events.

TM Forum Catalyst programs 

Throughout the show, we’ll be highlighting several strategic “Catalyst” projects that we’ve worked on with customers and partners in the Innovation Labs station..

GenAI hyper-personalized customer experience. Anticipating potential customer churn is as important as attracting new ones for CSPs. This catalyst will show a ready-to-deploy AI-driven customer engagement framework that has shown significant ROI through complex event-processing combining realtime AI/ML models in realtime with curated gen AI. This catalyst program is a collaborative team effort with participation from Google Cloud, Accenture, BT Group, Bell Canada, T-Mobile, Pega, Telecom Italia SpA, and Turknet. Learn more at Innovation Labs station C12.

Green and efficient radio access networks. The telecom industry accounts for 2% to 3% of global energy demand according to Greenhouse Insights and this is bound to increase with the exponential growth in mobile data traffic if nothing changes. This moonshot Catalyst project, involving a very diverse set of Telco Champions and technology providers, explores complementary solutions with the goal to cut 25% of energy consumption in the Radio Access Network by 2025 — with a potential impact on 60% of total telco energy spend. . This catalyst program is a collaborative team effort with participation from Google Cloud, Capgemini, Ericsson, Orange, Telenor Group, Verizon, Vodafone, and others. Learn more at Innovation Labs station M3.
