NEWS FLASH! –Global MBB Forum 2014, November 4 - 6 in Shanghai

Dear Colleague

This November we will be celebrating the fifth Global MBB Forum. We invite you to please mark your calendars and reserve a place as soon as possible.

With added attendance and value every year since 2010, the annual Global MBB Forum attracts participation by many of the world’s leading operators and industry leaders; addressing audiences of as many as 400 senior executives focused on issues critical to MBB success.

Over the past four years we have met together in Oslo, Berlin, Vancouver and London. In this News Flash we are excited to provide you with exclusive advance notice of the Global MBB Forum 2014 which will be held in Shanghai, China.

This is a great year to attend. The three major telecom operators in China are all focused on 4G for next-step investments and enablement of MBB services. Within this year, forecasts call for China’s LTE market size to increase to five times the size of 2014. This massive and rapid development will have an inevitable effect on the development of the MBB industry. We are now in the process of confirming speakers from major global operators, regulators and standards bodies, industry analyst firms, chipset and device manufacturers, mobile content providers, major mobile service companies and more – all of whom are keen to share their experiences and points of view on the explosive growth of the MBB industry. The overall intent of the Forum is to encourage thoughtful discussion and interaction with MBB ecosystem leaders from across the world. Some of the Topics currently under discussion with our global partners include:

  • Global spectrum strategy and data roaming
  • Successful paths to virtualization
  • 5G, 2020 and beyond
  • Emerging technologies and business models
  • OTT/Carrier partnership considerations
  • Peer sharing and celebration of MBB success

To receive added details, please register your interest by reserving a place at the Global MBB Forum 2014.  Send confirmations as soon as possible to Shasha Zhu (

We look forward to hearing from you!
