With the Indian middle class growing rapidly to more than 250 million persons, the country’s Telecom sector has seen an unprecedented growth, both in terms of the number of subscribers added and the growth of the Value Added Services market. India is now the world’s second largest telecom market in the world by number of subscribers, as one of the fastest growing markets. This represents a large opportunity for Swedish companies to support Indian operators in the expansion of their telecom networks as well as in their efforts to introduce new Value Added Services (VAS) to the market and increase the Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) for the operators. The ICT delegation to India will have a clear match-making focus and will aim to organize meetings with the key operators and telecom players in India. Participating companies will get an opportunity to meet with the relevant decision makers for them at the operators and other telecom players, through customized break-out sessions in the delegation programme.
Areas of special interest for the Indian operators and telecom players:
Value Added Services (Infotainment apps, games, mobile TV, mobile payment solutions, etc.)
Network Management Systems
Spectrum Management Systems
Service delivery platforms
