TelcoTV, taking place this week in Las Vegas, will be re-named TelcoVision, starting next year. Notes Carol Wilson, program chairwoman at TelcoVision, "While public focus often centers on the largest telecom players, there are hundreds of medium and small operators who are not only driving innovation and collectively purchasing large volumes of equipment and software, but also playing a significant role in the broadband future of the United States. To meet their changing needs, TelcoVision will encompass video services, wireless options and business opportunities such as Ethernet and cloud, delivering the latest information on technology, business strategies and market success stories." Here’s what to look forward to next year: Business service opportunities in Ethernet, managed, hosted and cloud services; wireless service opportunities for telcos, including those with and without spectrum; new markets like distance learning, telemedicine and remote energy management/smart grid; economic development and the role it plays in developing and funding the expansion of rural networks; new network transformation trends; and back-office transformation trends.
