Insights India – The Right Platform to Showcase Innovation and Discuss the Evolution of the Indian Telecoms Industry

By Raghunatha Chary, Regional Vice President Sales, India

With the evolution of 3G and Smart Phones, the Indian roaming market has become very mature. New players are constantly entering the market; newly launched groundbreaking services are increasing the volume of data transactions exponentially. Additionally, the fact that prices and exchange rates are constantly fluctuating introduces more complex elements into the equation to ensure revenue protection. The key areas to focus for operators have therefore become management of retail roaming, 3G opportunities and driving roaming revenue growth.

It is not surprising then that we have chosen “Innovation and evolution of the Indian telecoms industry” as the theme for our first ever Insights India conference, due to take place in Jaipur 9th -11th November. MACH Insights is recognized in the industry as a leading conference in the mobile calendar, providing in-depth coverage of roaming topics, and we are delighted to be able to bring to our customers in India the company’s first regional Insights event.

Insights India offers key representatives from India’s mobile operator community the opportunity to come under one roof and discuss areas related to improving roaming business efficiency and increased roaming revenue. The exclusive three-day event comprehensively studies these critical issues and discusses solutions to improve internal roaming business efficiency. The interactive agenda of Insights India will allow delegates to ponder on strategic and technological advances, discuss how to enhance profitability, overcome regulatory restrictions and achieve a roaming package of the future.

Mr. Rich Grohol, CCO MACH will open the conference and share his insights on the Global & Indian telecom industry. While prominent speakers from the industry and from MACH will be discussing the latest trends and developments in roaming, interconnect billing, direct operator billing and messaging. We whole heartedly welcome our two keynote guest speakers: Mr. Abhishek Chauhan, Senior Consultant, ICT Practice, Frost & Sullivan, South Asia & Middle East, and Mr. Anand Parthasarathy, an industry veteran of over 25 years, IT journalist and founder of India Tech Online. We also look forward to our scheduled Panel Discussion on ‘3G roaming pacts – a good thing or bad thing for the industry?’ which will be moderated by Mr. Anand Parthasarathy.

At MACH, we are totally committed to helping operators in India navigate the challenges and opportunities that come with 3G, as evidenced by our investment in a brand new global data clearing platform in Hyderabad earlier this year. The multi-million dollar investment, the largest in the company’s history, is paving the way for mobile operators in India to leverage the full service capabilities of 3G without large CAPEX investments and reap the benefits of increased usage and revenue growth. Insights India is clear evidence of our ever growing commitment to the country’s fast expanding telecoms industry, underpinning our aim to play an increasingly active role and demonstrating our desire to partner and grow with India.
