The Future Of Telecommunications: A Paradigm Shift Into The Unknown

Jatin will be discussing the future of communications pertaining to new trends, new technologies and the migration to cloud services within the mobile arena. Hot topics such as the price of data, mobile termination rates and the death of the smartphone contract will be explored. Consumer insights will also be discussed as the telecommunications industry is primarily driven by the wallets of their customers. The industry is clearly set for an unsustainable path as there are many interrelated factors in play. These include migration to Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), the emergence of new telecom players and the upcoming price wars. Telecommunications all over the world, including South Africa, has become a volatile and unpredictable entity that is on the cusp of transformation. This is what makes telecoms such an exciting industry to be in. Anything is possible, and he certainly wants to be part of it by sharing his research and expertise to ensure a better future for all."

O3

It is the realisation that something is wrong with the world that has brought you here, reading this sentence. What is O3? Unfortunately, No one can tell you what O3 is, you have to see it for yourself. You take the Blue Pill, and nothing happens, you wake up lost in the illusion of a world in blissful ignorance. You take the Red Pill, and free your mind to be able to see the sometimes painful truth of reality. To see O3 is to take on the power to forge a new path away from a life of redundancy, and rise up Africa up to its rightful place in the world. Careful.. once you choose, you can never go back.
