VNTelecom Conference

Founded in 2006, VNTelecom has become a leading forum on ICT (Information and communications technology) with over 24,000 members, including professors, PhDs, engineers, consultants, researchers and students from the Vietnamese community working in the Telco industry.

On November 26 was held the 4th annual VNTelecom seminar on Innovation and Creativity in ICT. This one-day event aims at building a bridge between professionals around the globe to contribute to the Telco development in Vietnam. Around 50 VN Telecom enthusiasts participated to the conference in HCMC (Vietnam) and 80 in Paris (France).

Report from HCM City

In Vietnam, the conference brought together students, VN Express reporters, Telecom professionals and lecturers.

Mr. Minh TRAN DINH, Operation manager for BPO services in Officience, was one of them. He made a presentation about operational innovations in telecom providers. It showed the importance of anticipating the changes. This allows to identify challenges and to implement an innovation strategy aligned with the company’s strategy. For a telecom operator, the relationship with the end customer is the most important. And innovation must be done throughout the organization.

Other topics discussed during the morning in Vietnam:

– ‘Use of Digital Signatures in e-commerce’ by Mr. Nguyen Van ****, vice director of the AITech (Asian Institute of Management and Technology).

– ‘Vietnam spectrum occupancy measurements and analysis for cognitive radioapplication’ by Dr. Vo Nguyen Quoc Bao, lecturer at PTIT (Posts and Telecommunications Institute of Technology).
