With World Telemedia Prague just two weeks away, the speakers in the main conference area have been revealed.
This time out the conference is being put together in a new way, with four main plenaries – covering global opportunities for telemedia, carrier billing, strategic telecoms and vertical markets – while many of the other issues around the industry are being handled in break outs in the city centre and in our country focus workshops.
