InterConnect Communications celebrates 30 years of telecom consulting services to regulatory authorities and service providers worldwide as industry continues to adopt new policies and embrace new technologies
CHEPSTOW, Wales, July 1, 2014 / PRNewswire – InterConnect Communications, a renowned boutique telecoms consultancy based in Chepstow, Wales, celebrated its 30th anniversary on 28 June 2014.
“In 1984 InterConnect was the first consulting company to carve out a niche in the telecommunications regulatory market,” said Suresh Subramanian, Managing Director. ”After being acquired in 2001 by Telcordia Technologies, dba iconectiv, we continue to expand our consulting services and customer success stories. We are pleased that the InterConnect brand is as strong as ever today.”
Throughout the history of the company, InterConnect has helped government authorities, particularly in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, to introduce telecommunications sector reform, establish independent regulatory authorities and develop fair and transparent regulatory processes together with supporting legislation. InterConnect has played a key role in the introduction of number portability in numerous countries, often coupled with reviewing and upgrading national number plans. Other engagements have involved the creation of national spectrum management policies and plans, and optimisation of the use of spectrum in various geographies. Recently, InterConnect has done pioneering work in preparing stakeholders for the transition to an IP world, in both technical and policy matters, such as IPv4 to IPv6 and new top-level domains.
InterConnect also offers the industry-leading Telecommunications Regulatory Master Classes (TRMCs). This programme provides delegates with comprehensive, practical understanding and application of timely knowledge on issues in the world of electronic communications and the Internet. Covering regulation, wireless networks, spectrum, access and interconnection, economics, naming and addressing, and Internet governance, the TRMC program has benefited over 2000 global attendees from around 115 countries.
“The communications landscape has transformed significantly over the last 30 years, and yet, there remains a pressing need for timely, accurate and relevant consulting and training to benefit regulators, service providers and consumers. InterConnect is proud to have provided this capability since its inception and is uniquely positioned to continue to provide this in the competitive markets of the future,” said Subramanian.
