Dubai – MENA Herald: Ericsson discusses the implementation of smarter services across a variety of industries and the key issues facing network operators with remit to support increasingly connected societies at GSMA Mobile 360.

In the Networked Society, where connectivity is the catalyst for collaboration and innovation, smarter services are creating differentiated experiences and operational efficiency. Drawing on the skills of expert speakers at GSMA Mobile 360, Ericsson will examine the issues in implementing these services, as well as solutions that pave the way to life in the Networked Society.

Alp Uysal, Vice President and Head of Strategy and Business Excellence at Ericsson, said: “In the Networked Society, information and communications technology will be the catalyst of a new economic model delivering growth and prosperity based on a greater social cohesion and environmental sustainability. It will empower transformation, creating disruptive changes across both industries and society as a whole.”

“ICT has unleashed an era of increased innovation where industry players are continuously challenged by new markets, emerging challengers and novel logic in terms of value creation. This is an era that we call the Networked Society, where every person and every industry is empowered to reach their full potential. We are excited to share our knowledge with industry experts at this year’s GSMA Mobile 360 Conference and offer a glimpse into the Networked Society future where smarter services prevail,” added Tarek Saadi, Head of Sales, Ericsson, Region Middle East.

Smarter services are being implemented across a number of industries, ranging from national to cross-border implementations. Implementing smarter services requires high levels of co-operation and co-ordination to deliver services effectively and at scale.

In two separate panel discussions Alp Uysal, Ericsson’s Vice President and Head of Strategy and Business Excellence for the Middle East Region, and Tarek Saadi, Head of Sales for the Middle East Region, will join industry experts to address Delivering Smarter Networks across MENA and Implementing Smarter Services on October 20, at the Dubai World Trade Centre, Sheikh Maktoum Hall in Dubai, UAE.
