In Central & Eastern Europe (CEE), competition among mobile operators is increasing, as most markets have arrived at penetration rates of over 100%. The vast and high-potential Russian mobile market is launching 3G networks and services all over the country; what have Russian operators learned from European experiences? The mobile markets in CEE and Russia are also maturing, and as third-generation mobile networks have been or are being deployed, consumers have become more sophisticated, and want more than just voice from their mobile devices.
This is the critical tipping point for operators, to position themselves as mobile service providers, to become more than just bit pipes by offering Value Added Services (VAS). Especially the mobile broadband VAS, such as video and music streaming, are positioned to become key revenue drivers in CEE, the Caucasus, Russia and Central Asia.
This MobilePlus Summit in Kiev will provide the rare opportunity to meet operators and regulators from CEE, Russia, the Caucasus and Central Asia under one roof, exchanging experiences about mobile commercial and marketing strategies, and discussing the evolving business model for mobile operators. Regulatory updates will be given on post-3G regulation in the region and upcoming license tenders and 3G launches.
Leading operators will share insights on successful strategies in CEE, Russia and CIS regarding new mobile revenue drivers, fixed-mobile convergence opportunities, VAS. The impact of new 3G VAS, and their limitations, will be discussed, covering mobile advertising, mobile video/tv, video calls and other innovative and other profitable mobile products and services.
Join top executives of key incumbents and new operators from CEE, the Caucasus and Russia, at this inaugural summit in Kyiv/Kiev. Ukraine is one of the most competitive mobile markets in CEE with twelve mobile operators, and one of the most advanced markets in mobile services. Full deployment of GSM-based 3G services is expected soon, pending a tender for additional UMTS licenses in H2 2008/H1 2009.
