THE NEW GLOBAL DIGITAL ORDER

THE EVOLUTION FROM NETWORKS TO SERVICES

The world changed and changed us drastically, the digital transformation that we expected to happen in more than a decade, happened in less than two years; remote work became massive and is here to stay; the digitization of social, cultural, industrial and commercial processes was consolidated; access to the network ceased to be a value-added service to become an essential service, while the digital economy now drives global growth.

Internet Service Providers, formerly known as ISP, are now mostly referred to as CSP: (Communication Service Provider); the network infrastructure is no longer the preponderant factor and the provision of communication services is now the main asset.

Territories and Smart Cities are no longer an option in the new Global Order, but the only option for the fulfillment of the goals of economic, political, cultural and social development, from small cities to the largest cities, from SMEs to large industries, require digital transformation to survive in this new world order, with efficiency, control, quality and low cost.

The Internet of Things, 5G Networks, Big Data, ultra-speed Internet access, massive consumption of video-on-demand, cloud storage, Artificial Intelligence and automation are no longer science fiction and are now an integral part of the daily lives of the citizens of this world, in the second decade of the 21st century.

CONTENT PRODUCTION AND DISTRIBUTION

THE CROWN JEWEL IN THE NEW DIGITAL GLOBAL ORDER

While more than 90% of households in Latin America have access to traditional television, approximately 73% of the total number of households with Internet access in the region consume video-on-demand services through OTT paid platforms.

According to figures from multiple regional studies, it is estimated that a young person in Latin America spends approximately 8 hours a day consuming content, whether on television, tablets, computers or, of course, mobile devices

Content is becoming the most demanded input in the new digital world order and audiovisual content is the greatest exponent of this industry.

Although the content industry globally is in one of its best historical moments, Latin America’s contribution to this global market is minimal, which is not only worrying because of the impact on cultural representations, but also because of the lack of competitiveness of our companies; new strategies are needed to strengthen the economies of services and content throughout the region.

SERVICE PROVISION: The ROLE OF ISPs – CSPs

IN THE NEW WORLD ORDER

CARLOS EDUARDO FARIAS
CONSULTOR

 

 

The second decade of the 21st century began with an Internet with a high level of cache, the global CDN network reduced the price of international connectivity, governments sought to standardize the market and declare the Internet as a Universal Public Service, while competition has cannibalized the market, forcing providers to work practically with operational margins.

Providing Internet alone is no longer a business, unless great economies of scale, high efficiency in provisioning and strict operational cost reduction can be achieved.

The new order has made it clear that ISPs must evolve and become CSPs (Communication Service Providers) in order to survive and stay afloat in the complex market, focusing on the provision of valuable services, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), home automation, cloud, security, education, health and a number of new businesses that can provide oxygen to the cash flows that are so scarce.

GUESTS:

Technology and Digital Solution Providers

ISP Representatives

Experts in Digital Service Provision

 Moderating Questions:

What are the services that ISPs can provide to become CSPs?

How to change from ISP to CSP?

How does the provision of communications services improve cash flows?

What is the future of Internet service provision?

SMARTCITIES

THE DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION OF TERRITORIES

IN THE NEW DIGITAL WORLD ORDER

MORNING SESSION

 

Smart Cities refers to the use of Information and Communication Technology – ICT, applied in multiple territorial contexts, as a public-private strategy to simplify and substantially improve the quality of life of citizens, boosting the digital economy.

Smart cities and smart territories may be a great opportunity for new business for Internet access providers, as long as there is political will and public-private leverage to articulate the different actors of a city in a single strategy that focuses on the welfare of citizens-something that can be achieved in Latin America, if an open and frank dialogue is promoted between local and regional governments, civil society, private enterprise and Internet access providers.

Urban security, mobility, environmental management, lighting, telemetry for utilities, energy generation, information management, connectivity and many other aspects are part of the broad portfolio of services that make up Smart Cities.

GUESTS:

Technology and Digital Solution Providers

ISP Representatives

Experts in Smart Territories and Smart Cities
