It was an opportunity for us all to recalibrate our navigation aids.

One of the world’s leading independent specialists in the future of telecommunications delivered an over-the-horizon view of the future of telecommunications at an industry-meets-academia conference in Cologne in November.

Prof. Dr. Thomas Magedanz, chair for next generation networks at the Technische Universität in Berlin and also leader of the NGNI Competence Center at the Fraunhofer Institut in Berlin, set out his vision of the role telcos will play in the emerging future Internet and the development of smart cities.

Also making presentations at the conference in the Hotel Im Wasserturm were senior staff from M-net, IN-telegence and EWE TEL, three of Germany’s most pioneering next generation network operators who shared their individual responses to changing technologies and the evolving regulatory framework in Germany.

It was the fourth Telsis Carrier Day and, said Telsis director of German sales Peter Ritzmann, the best yet. “We had an audience of representatives from nine regional carriers. There were presentations from Telsis about our history, our current technology and our development roadmap, but this was primarily a day where industry and academia could share information and debate differing views. Our colleagues from the three regional carriers spoke about the here and now realities of migrating to IMS, and Prof. Dr. Magedanz gave us a fascinating long-term view of where he believes we are all heading. It was an opportunity for us all to recalibrate our navigation aids.”

Telsis’ German subsidiary has been active since 1990 and is acknowledged as being a vendor with flexible and cost-effective solutions that uniquely enable regional telcos to cut costs and deliver value-added voice services that meet the needs of their corporate and private customers.
