Recognising the need for dynamic pricing for mobile data, & the convergence of strategic planning & technical expertise.
Informa Telecoms & Media are delivering a fresh set of two co-located events to address the growing need to price mobile data correctly and support new strategies with next generation business support systems (BSS) throughout the organisation. The co-location of the two conferences with separate conference programmes and a shared exhibition area represents the need for convergence of strategic plans and technical expertise.
The Pricing Mobile Data and Next Generation BSS conference programmes will address the complex challenges which operators face today in capitalising on consumers’ hunger for mobile data, demonstrating best practice of the latest trends and technologies utilised to seize the opportunities in a rapidly evolving market, on the brink of a new era for telecommunications with LTE.

- Optimising pricing and BSS for 4G services / LTE

- Improving billing data capabilities to price data accurately, resulting in positive customer experience

Pricing Mobile Data Overview
Addressing the challenges of mobile data monetisation through innovative pricing strategies
Following the successful launch of the 2012 Pricing Mobile Data, the event this year will further explore operators’ innovative tactics, experiences across different regions and latest needs for a successful mobile data pricing strategy in a rapidly evolving market.
Perspectives from key players in the industry will be shared through practical case studies, successful examples, interactive sessions, thought-provoking keynotes and topical discussions – all focused on most effective pricing strategies for monetisation of mobile data as it remains at the centre stage.
The Pricing Mobile Data event will fully address the most relevant issues and a range of solutions, considering tested tactics and examples.
Next Generation BSS
Reinventing BSS for success in a data-driven world - Centralisation, consolidation, convergence
As a result of shifting from voice and SMS to data-centred mobile services, and in line with the fact that top-level pricing strategies cannot stand alone without fully functional BSS strategy and operations, Informa Telecoms & Media’s Software and Services team are delivering a fresh and specifically focused event on the latest trends in BSS strategies.
Moreover, the Pricing Mobile Data and Next Generation BSS events are co-located, taking place on the same dates and in the same venue, to facilitate this inevitable connection. Both events are created on extensive industry research, with the aim to address the latest challenges which the modern operator faces in implementing their mobile data pricing and BSS strategies in 2013 and onwards.
Next Generation BSS will focus on the relationship between strategic BSS plans which support modern pricing strategies, and how they can be carried out in practice on an operational level. This will include exploring the necessary changes and adoptions of new services in areas such as billing, connecting pricing charging and payments, policy and CEM. These topics will be examined within the context of supporting new business models, which shift from voice to data driven mobile services. Hear about best practice and how to monetise on necessary investments in new technologies at this event.
