Next week, my home town of Madrid, Spain will be playing host to the Wholesale World Congress, for which Colt is a gold sponsor. Taking place 7th-9th September, the international telecoms wholesale community will be brought together at the event to discuss the most pertinent issues challenging and driving the industry as we know it.

In addition to exchanging numerous handshakes, meeting with our customers and joining the thousands of others in the queue for lunch, we will be participating in a roundtable at the show, focusing on how the EU’s recent announcement on mobile roaming will impact end users, wholesalers and providers.

We’ll also be sharing our insights on the latest next generation wholesale services, based on Colt’s extensive experience bringing together pioneering Ethernet and IP networks with IT infrastructure and services as Europe’s information delivery platform. This is a particularly pertinent issue because of the current challenges facing operators and service providers in reducing their cost base while being able to capitalise on new business opportunities and scaling to meet new service demands quickly and effectively.

As end-customers become increasingly demanding in terms of the capacity and quality of service required and call for the highest levels of network performance as standard, the point of differentiation for service providers is in their ability to offer the variety of options their end-customers require, delivering a range of value-added customised solution offerings that extend their current service portfolio and generate new revenue streams at a lower cost base.

As such, it is important for operators and service providers to work with a wholesale partner who can provide a robust, reliable Carrier Ethernet experience with end-to-end network visibility and guaranteed service level agreements (SLAs) that they can rely on. They need a network partner that can accommodate rapid scaling or expansion if required, with a growing amount looking to entirely outsource not only their network services but also value added services such as cloud and managed services. This frees service providers to concentrate on what they do best: providing excellent customer service and growing business operations rather than managing network infrastructure day to day, enabling them to offer more value-added next generation solutions.
