CAMBRIDGE, Mass., April 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Pyramid Research analysts, experts in telecommunications growth strategies, announced today the launch of a new event aimed at the mobile broadband market in Brazil. "Making Money on Mobile Broadband Brazil" will take place on June 15 and 16 at Estanplaza International in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
This is the only event in the region to offer expertise and practical advice from Pyramid Research analysts about how telecom operators can bring value beyond 3G and 4G connectivity access. It will offer a unique opportunity for telecom operators, hardware and software vendors, equipment manufacturers, government and regulatory agencies, service providers and others to learn, exchange knowledge and network.
As the largest telecommunications market in Latin America and with significant growth expected over the next five years, competition in the Brazilian market is increasing, as companies vie for their share of the $88.7 billion projected market value in 2015.
As Sonia Jorge, Research and Consulting Director for Pyramid Research, explains, "The Brazilian National Broadband Plan is really making a push to boost broadband penetration, particularly in rural areas, and this will bring increased opportunities on many fronts, from mobile Internet to content distribution. We want to engage with key sector players to discuss these multiple opportunities, and our event provides the perfect forum to do so."
The quality two-day program will provide cutting-edge content on the very latest market demands; 4G services; value-added services for end consumers and corporations; opportunities to increase operators' market share; growth opportunities in mobile Internet; digital inclusion; backhaul technology; core convergence; impacts of social networking on the mobile market; and main strategies used by the players in Brazil.
"Our event is unique because Pyramid will share our analysis and recent research on the Brazilian market with key sector players to inform the discussions on revenue-generating opportunities and the role of the sector in the development of the Brazilian economy as a whole," says Sonia Jorge.
Attendees will benefit from an unrivalled speaker lineup, as well as the very latest market intelligence and analysis from our Pyramid experts at the very heart of the industry.
