Conecta LATAM, the largest telecom industry conference in South America, took place on November 18th and 19th in an online format. The summit involved over 1,000 representatives of various companies throughout the region, including leading telecom providers, such as Claro, Telefonica and AT&T.
ITGLOBAL.COM and VAS Experts, a local vendor, presented Stingray Service Gateway, a complex solution for telecom operators. Stingray SG combines four functions into one: it’s a router, a deep packet inspection (DPI) tool, a broadband network gateway (BNG), and a network address translation (NAT) server. This versatility lets operators build a more compact network, and lower scaling and managing costs by more than 25%.
Vasiliy Belov, ITGLOBAL.COM deputy CEO:
“We were thrilled to take part in one of the most important events for the telecom industry in the South American region. Right now, telecom is growing by leaps and bounds in South America. It’s a very promising market for integrators that can present genuinely innovative products. So we were happy to show Stingray SG specifically at Conecta LATAM. This was the first time the solution got officially presented to the public.
I think that you can’t overestimate the value of products like Stingray SG given the current growth of mobile traffic, including 5G. Just look at how interested our Latin American colleagues were in its capabilities.”
In addition to Stingray SG, ITGLOBAL.COM presented its White Label partner program to our Latin American colleagues. Under this program, ITGLOBAL.COM partners get turnkey cloud infrastructure based on the vStack virtualization platform. After joining White Label, telecom operators can sell IaaS under their own brand.
According to our survey conducted during the conference, the topics the participants found to be the most interesting were:
- the development of 5G and IoT in the region;
- digital transformation;
- new growth models for the telecom industry.
