Wonderful information. Thank you, Ronan!

Gigamaster

Final pillar - * Trust opex - Unfortunately, have seen malware rise, even in less expensive handsets; even if careful about installing security software, if the handset -- perhaps discounted or very low-cost IoT sensor -- is infected, then customer is in trouble.

Are we on the cusp of a sort of technological revolution, say when the Internet changed the way we do absolutely everything? Perhaps with the relationship between service provider, operators, vendors?

* Importance of culture - of the operator and of each vendor/partner - 5x or 7x9s - must be very careful about cultural alignment of each provider of each component

Do you have any questions for Ronan?

Peter Drucker - Culture eats strategy for breakfast - Do you agree?

Fascinating ideas!

Interesting example about the giraffe. Unfortunately, I am not vertically challenged. 

Gigamaster

Not "vertically challenged" aka tall as a child - so Ronan leveraged his height into a reasonably successful 'career' as a high jumper. Used this as an example of thinking out of the box.

If you cannot hear Ronan and Alison, please refresh your browser.

Hello from Long Island, New York. Will this radio show load automatically?

Gigamaster

Don't forget to get your questions ready for Ronan!

Author

Hello, from Long Island! Hopefully I can get to hear this show. I think it's supposed to load automatically?

 

Gigamaster
The audio player will load automatically when the radio show audio begins. Some corporate networks block the sort of streaming audio content used by this player. If the player loads but you are not able to hear the live audio, you may still be able to hear the archived audio after the live program finishes by returning to this page.
