Dreams and disruptions – what’s in store for the industry in 2024?

According to the Chinese Zodiac, 2024 is the Year of the Dragon. In Chinese culture, dragons are considered powerful, endlessly energetic, and full of vitality. But will the telecoms industry live up to these ideals? In the current state of the world, many challenges and opportunities lie ahead – and the telecoms industry is at the core of several of them.

Watch this webinar where Arelion’s Chief Evangelist Mattias Fridström shares his predictions and dreams for 2024, which includes everything from technicians which can teleport between repair sites, to the ever-increasing importance of keeping the Internet open and free for all.
