Pacific Telecommunications Council Conference (PTC) 2015

“Networked Planet” was the theme of this year’s PTC, exploring transformation and new strategies from economic, regulatory, industry structure and customer needs perspectives. Making the point was HGC’s Andrew Kwok, President of International and Carrier Business of HGC, who took part in a panel discussion on “Future Revenue in Telecom”. In face of revenue shift from wholesale carriers to content and application providers, Mr. Kwok addressed the need for carriers to differentiate by not merely relying on the provision of traditional services, but aligning with the OTT trend through value-added services. Mr. Kwok also encourages partnering with different vendors to expand variety of services. The practice brings revenue to HGC’s partners and creates a healthy, win-win relationship.
