3G Diffusion, Impact, and Opportunities


This month Chetan Sharma and Hans Hanspal will be giving a presentation on 3G entitled "3G Diffusion, Impact, and Opportunities". Chetan has recently had an article entitled "3G: Hitting the Mass Market" published as the cover article for Wireless World that is a very good overview of the current state of 3G. Chetan and Hans will be speaking about the current state of 3G and what we can expect in the short and long term.

From Chetan: "We will focus our attention on 3G's diffusion to mass-market in key geographies, look into key drivers for 3G growth, and discuss the short-term (12-18 months) and long-term (1-5 years) trends. We will also discuss some of the challenges associated with the increasing volumes of data."

So if your business is mobile content, networks, services, or applications; your business is going to be affected by 3G networks. You don't want to miss this one.
