The African communications market is experiencing rapid growth. As mobile penetration increases and competition heats up, more and more customers are adopting the latest technologies and devices. At the same time, their expectations are soaring. To succeed, service providers need to do more than just remain competitive. They must sustain growth, retain customers and differentiate themselves from the competition by adopting a long term transformation strategy to help them make the right technology, software and business decisions. 

TM Forum's Africa Summit 2012 addresses the key business and technical issues that service providers in Africa face through two days filled with Keynote Perspectives and inspiring presentations from some of the biggest names in the industry, case studies and panels featuring leading service providers, networking opportunities and vital education. Explore the latest trends in the African communications market (LTE, cloud, VAS and more) and discover how service providers can seize growth opportunities and succeed by adopting more effective business, IT and operational strategies through practical use cases of TM Forum best practices and standards, including Frameworx.
