The three-day Shanghai conference took place from 26-28 June and was organised by the international trade association GSMA. This annual event has grown to become Asia’s largest exhibitions and thought-leadership conferences in the mobile industry. It was a great opportunity for Wavenet to also highlight Sri Lanka’s ICT talent and technology capabilities.

Speaking on behalf of the company, Global Wavenet Group Corporate Communications Head Dulmi Gunatilake said: “It is more than a proud moment for Wavenet to be featured on what is known to be ‘the most elite conferences of the mobile telecoms world’, as this places Wavenet on par with internationally recognised vendors in the mobile industry and indicates the company’s brand recognition in terms of delivering innovation and relevant differentiation amongst highly competitive global brands in the telco market. The company being selected as a speaker by an elite organisation such as the GSMA increases the company’s brand equity in the eyes of its stakeholders and in the ICT industry of brand Sri Lanka.”

Suren Pinto delivered his keynote speech under the theme ‘Media and Content Summit’ on the trending topic of delivering smart video content technology and on how mobile operators can monetise this opportunity. 

Pinto stated: “Wavenet’s strategic direction has always been based upon building value for mobile operators through rich engagement platforms, efficient network consolidation solutions and digital services, and this year we are taking a special focus on impacting operator business models with Wavenet’s new Digital Transformation Solutions Suite that enables superior software architectures inside mobile operators to drive smarter backend operations, build state-of-the-art AI-infused systems to deliver on better operational efficiencies and business ROI.” “Wavenet will always be at the forefront of technology driving connectivity in the new tech arenas such as 5G, IoT, AI, Big Data and beyond so that we enable our customers – the mobile operators to explore the deeper depths of Intelligent Connectivity,” he added.
