Turkcell and Deutsche Telekom to address lower termination rates and IP interconnection challenges

Tayfun Çataltepe, Chief Executive of Corporate Strategy, Regulations and Interoperator Business at Turkcell and Thomas Grobb, Senior Expert Regulatory Strategy from Deutsche Telekom will be presenting at the Interconnection & Termination Rates event

 
PRLog - Jul. 14, 2011 - VICTORIA, U.K. -- With the latest Directive from the European Commission to drastically reduce mobile termination rates across the EU by 2012, operators are currently having to develop new business models to manage the reduction of revenues that this will cause. Turkcell, Turkey’s biggest mobile phone company, reported a fall in first-quarter profits of  21 percent after competition increased and the industry regulator cut termination rates (Source: Hurriyet Daily News).

To address this, Dr. Tayfun Çataltepe, Chief Executive of Corporate Strategy, Regulations and Interoperator Business at Turkcell, will present his insight on quantifying the effects of lower termination rates on Turkcell's profitability on Day Two of the Interconnection and Termination Rates Conference in September. He will also discuss how to analyse and minimise the effects of lower termination rates on existing operator business models, especially for MNVOs.

Elsewhere, looking at the increasing migration to All-IP networks, operators are rightly concerned about the interconnection with other operators to ensure optimum capacity and QoS for their customers. "... there are two main approaches to achieve quality over the internet while enabling QoS through IP interconnection", said Thomas Grobb, Senior Expert Regulatory Strategy from Deutsche Telekom, "One is within the internet... where the focus is currently on the network interfaces. The other way is without the public internet, by using, for example, the IPX system...". Thomas will showcase Deutsche Telekom's vision of delivering innovative services based on quality enabled networks on Day One of the Interconnection and Termination Rates Conference.

Tayfun and Thomas will join other industry experts at the Interconnection and Termination Rates Conference including:
• Nezih Dincbudak, Senior Manager of International Regulatory Affairs, France Telecom-Orange
• Uwe Fortwängler, Senior Interconnect Manager, Telefónica O2 Germany
• Tomaž Tomsic, Head of International Carrier Services, Telekom Slovenije
• Filip Sundram, Deputy Head of Market Division, National IT and Telecom Agency Denmark
