Telecom application developers exist and are grossly underserved by the telecom industry. They include: telco independent software vendors, system integrators, enterprise developers and many other developers building apps that live either in the core telecom network, enterprise data centers or public cloud.
Telecom application developers extend operator infrastructure in a variety of ways using SS7, SIP, Web APIs, and many new cloud-based technologies. There are hundreds of thousands of developers out there building commercial telecom services and applications all solving similar problems, face common challenges technically and commercially, and are key to Telecom’s future survival.
Asia is the center of telecom application developer success: with payment service success in Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore; content service success in Philippines, India, Singapore, China; and self-built call centers on free and open source software throughout China, Indonesia, India. So let’s start the Summit where developers are being successful in creating telecom applications, Asia!
The Event is scheduled for 21-22 Nov 2013 at the IMPACT Forum in Bangkok, Thailand. It will overlap the end of and and take place next door to ITU Telecom World with 7000 telecom visitors from around the world, and the start of the Mobicents Developer Summit. We are expecting approximately 150 attendees consisting of developers, telcos, and technologists from around the world.
Alan has spent most of his life building telecom applications within telcos (BT), vendors (Lucent, Cambridge Technology Partners), his start-up Teltier (presence applications), and working with many tens of telecom application developers around the world as an independent. His customers range from global leaders like AT&T, Etisalat, M1, Telstra, Verizon, Huawei, Oracle; to innovative start-ups like Apigee, AppTrigger (sold to Metaswitch), Camiant (sold to Oracle), Guavus, Layer 7 (sold to Computer Associates), OpenCloud, and Tropo. Alan writes a blog providing insights into the telecoms industry.
Presenters in the Developer Summit MUST live with a command line console on their laptop, to show telecom apps being created live.
