2013 highlights

quote-quote-open
  • "We have been saying that we need to invest in training and equipping the teachers for the digital classroom for more than a decade, and it still hasn't happened. That takes pedagogy as well."

    Tim Unwin, Secretary General
    Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation

  • "The core principle, that regulations should try to protect the consumers.. and then we encourage the consumers to have knowledge of it, in advance of technology, and at the same time, we encourage the operators to have social responsibility. And if we have problems, we will be prepared for the dispute setup mechanism."

    Suthiphon Thaveechaiyagarn, Commissioner
    NBTC, Thailand

  • "We traditionally... looked at the exclusive access to spectrum model where you have a single license that provides a single operator with guaranteed access and they can offer a guaranteed quality of service and they can charge a premium for that. We are now looking at a hybrid model. We call it authorized spectrum access -- a model where an operator can access spectrum that is encumbered by a government service, say, a radar service, but spectrum is not efficiently used."

    Alex Orange, Director
    Government Affairs, Southeast & Pacific, Qualcomm

  • "Consequential economies of scale from the use of international standards reduces the cost, increases competition, and lowers costs both to vendors, to service providers and to consumers."

    Malcolm Johnson, Director, Telecommunications Standardization Bureau
    ITU

  • "A mobile-first approach to business processes and design can take the user experience to another level inside the enterprise and solve real business problems. Mobile interfaces provide detailed insights and analytics never before seen on any device or interface."
