O2 Czech Digital Journey
Digitization is a major trend, even reinforced during the last 2 pandemic years, that is putting double challenge to the operators: we have to accelerate our own modernization to ultimately reduce dependance on physical channels and processes, and in the same time support our customers in their digitization efforts through increasing data traffic and innovative services (cloud, cyber sec etc.). Excellent business opportunity for us, and enormous challenge in the same time.
During my presentation, I am touching three areas that we see in O2 Czech Republic as essential to successfully walk thru this double challenge as a winner:
- Modernization of legacy (telco incumbent) architecture to increase speed of change delivery
- Smart CAPEX principles, namely keeping cost per customer flat
- 5G monetization is a must
Partnering for Success in the Face of Emerging Technologies
This presentation will cover the importance of shifting from a vendor model to a partnership model especially in the context of emerging technologies such as 5G and Edge. The speaker will discuss the challenges and barriers to true partnership along with the opportunities and propose how CSPs can partner with hyperscalers to optimise their revenue and unlock value. Finally, the speaker will explore the success factors that will be critical for partners’ success.
- The shift from buyer-seller model to a partnership model
- How can partners co-create to unlock value and drive growth?
- What are the critical success factors for true partnerships in the context of emerging technologies such as 5G and Edge?
Spectrum Policy and Telecom Regulatory Frameworks: Prioritising Objectives for the 2020s
Public Policy in the telecommunications sector continues to have a large impact in investment and innovation. Progress is however not linear, and policy objectives and priorities can at times seem contradictory. On the one hand, the European Union is setting aggressive political connectivity targets for 2030, including providing Gigabyt coverage to all households, expanding 5G coverage to all populated areas, and deploying 10,000 edge nodes to ensure businesses have access to low latency services. On the other hand, regulators have been instrumental in the declining revenues and valuations of EU telecom operators, hindering investor confidence and creating a connectivity investment gap vs. the US and Asia estimated at 42 billion EUR per year. The presentation will discuss the role of telecom regulation and spectrum policy in reaching the 2030 EU goals.

Risks and Opportunities in the EU Data Disruptive Regulatory Environment
Data can be one of the greatest assets for a company. Particularly, telecommunication service providers have a unique opportunity to innovate and scale with data driven solutions as they utilize their physical infrastructure strength and transpose it into their digital infrastructure. For Europe to tackle the future opportunities and challenges created by the digital industry, it needs a thriving and responsible private sector. Such a view has been confirmed by recent communications from the EU Commission President von der Leyen stressing the need for Europe to lead the transition to a new digital world. However, with recent regulatory disruptions affecting how companies process and transfer data – in particular personal data, traffic data & location data – the question remains whether the EU can compete with USA and China companies in the race towards a digital future.

5G in Cross-Border Mobility Use Cases: How KPN Is Working on Creating a “Blueprint”
With 5G being rolled out by operators all across the EU-member states, it becomes clear that if operators are aiming at having 5G play a pivotal role in Connected Automated Mobility, we need new mechanisms to facilitate these in a cross border context.
- Introduction to & status of the 5G-Blueprint project
- Goals for KPN in participating in 5G-Blueprint and other EU- (co-) funded projects
- Current insights into standardisation requirements and viability & governance when operators use publicly owned communication infrastructure
