Registration Now Open for TM Forum Device Management Summit

The TM Forum, the world’s leading trade association focused on management of information, communications, and entertainment services, is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the CONNECTIONS™ pre-show event: Device Management Summit on June 24. Early booking is rewarded with extra discounts, so we recommend that you book your place now.

The TM Forum Device Management Summit on “Low-Cost Device Deployment and User Support” addresses the growing management requirements generated by intelligent interconnected devices in the home, including mobile handsets, set-top boxes, and gateways. With one trillion devices expected in the next 15-20 years, service providers must solve device-based management issues, leading to reduced support costs, improved customer experience, and potentially add additional service revenues.

TM Forum helps its members by defining best practices, guidelines, and standards for operational processes and systems to enabling better automated processes by deploying operational systems that require lower integration effort across the service delivery chain. The TM Forum has formed an interest group of hardware, software, and service provider companies to investigate the feasibility of a common industry approach to user-device management.

“In a marketplace where customers demand ‘any service on any device, anywhere,’ user devices are becoming a key part of content and information services, creating major challenges for service providers,” said Keith Willetts, chairman and CEO, TM Forum. “The Forum has launched a new initiative to explore the feasibility of a common device management approach. We are delighted to have forged this exciting new relationship with CONNECTIONS for a series of events to help stimulate innovative solutions to this growing challenge."
