Ep 50 – The public cloud is PERFECT for India

India is a fascinating place for telco operators. It’s home to more than a billion subscribers, while also having some of the lowest ARPU on the planet. This means mobile operators there not only need carrier-grade software products, they need to get them for a low, low price.

Last week I delivered a keynote at Voice & Data’s “5G and the future of mobile data” conference in Delhi, India. I’ve turned that talk into this podcast episode to share why the public cloud is perfect for India’s unique telco market and how to unlock its full potential. Listen now to hear:

  • Why the public cloud is such a good fit for India’s operators [04:47];
  • Why using cloud native telco software is critical to success [06:40]; and
  • The simple way to tell if a telco software solution is truly cloud native, and not just “cloud washed.” [07:44]
