Once the path to subscriber loyalty and ARPU, television services have lost their luster and profitability. Service providers must now find new, sticky paths to ongoing revenue -- the topic of an upcoming webinar on Broadband World News.
The start of a new year, indeed the beginning of a decade, is a natural time to consider prospective business changes. And with so many technological advances occurring -- 5G, WiFi 6 and the explosion of IoT, plus operators' infrastructure investments in areas like fiber, next-generation PON, DOCSIS 3.1 and beyond -- this is a particularly pertinent time to map out the next one year, or three, five or more.
On Thursday, January 23, BBWN will host a complimentary webinar, "Transforming Your Business Model: Opportunities for Service Providers in 2020," at 12:00 p.m. EST / 9:00 a.m. PST / 5:00 p.m. GMT. The event is sponsored by Calix. Register here.
Guest speakers include Bridget Watkins, product marketing director at Calix, and Greg Owens, senior director of product marketing at Calix. Alison Diana, BBWN editor, will moderate the event.
The presentation includes new, exclusive research, with plenty of time for attendee questions, and will focus on key topics such as:
How to differentiate your business by being first to market with WiFi 6 technology, able to support the devices consumers received or bought over the holidays
Why having the insights to proactively resolve issues -- often before subscribers even realize their network may be misbehaving -- creates excellent CX
How help desk agents can become superstars when equipped with visibility into common subscriber issues
When a mobile app can become a subscriber's best friend -- and yours, too
Why transparency about device security, privacy and control, plus enhanced security and parental controls, differentiates CSPs
Join us on Jan. 23 at 12:00 p.m. EST / 9:00 a.m. PST / 5:00 p.m. GMT by registering here.
