Special forum announced at AfricaCast

Verimatrix have announced a special forum co-located at next month’s AfricaCast in Cape Town: “Multi-network solutions in the Real World: Proactive Digitalisation Strategies to Maximise Revenue Growth.” It will take place on November 13, 2013, 1:35pm to 2:50pm, at the Cape Town Convention Centre, South Africa. The forum will address how industry experts are leveraging the analogue-to-digital transition in Africa to maximise revenue growth.

The informative and interactive session will discuss:

  • New opportunities for operators to introduce video services that have historically not been possible
  • The effect of economic growth factors across Africa and particularly Sub-Saharan Africa, which are providing increased disposable income to the general population
  • The current developments in creating a next-generation, IP-based networks
  • Opportunities to offer and monetise multi-screen services

The agenda will feature Anton Smith, CEO Hambisana (“Avoiding The Pitfalls When Integrating Multi-Network Services In Africa”), Nick Ruczaj, VP Business Development EMEA Vubiquity (“Maximising On Demand Business Models in Africa”), and Steve Christian, VP Marketing, Verimatrix (“Securing Revenue Across Hybrid Networks In Africa”).
