Conference Agenda


Telco companies have been struggling for years now, to get new services to the masses, but so far with little success. At the same time traditional, voice related revenue models start pointing at a steady decrease and telcos are at risk to be reduced to IP tunnel provider services for Skype & Co.

Will user-centric identity management eventually replace "corporation-centric" identity management?

Jörg Heuer from Deutsche Telekom Labs will propose answers to these questions, which are becoming vital not only for telcos.
