Summit

Where can you come and see all your existing partners and suppliers under one roof? The Convergence Summit South! The show will take place at Sandown Park, Esher, on the 8th and 9th October and is set to be one of the biggest shows to date. Being the biggest show in the Channel calendar brings with it the best opportunity for resellers to network, create new relationships and hopefully cement existing ones.

All the major Convergence suppliers will be in attendance and will be eager to show off their new products and services. Three of our exhibitors Tollring Carphone Warehouse and Talk Talk Business spoke to us about why the show is so important to them.

A spokesperson from headline sponsor, Talk Talk Business, commented “Convergence Summit South is the biggest show of the year and is a great opportunity for us to meet our resellers and to showcase our data connectivity and networking portfolio. We can provide fantastic opportunities for resellers to become engaged in an emerging market. As more and more customers adopt convergence, it will become a vital source of future revenue that can save money for the customer. We offer a full range of Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) products including Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet (EoFTTC), EFM and Ethernet. Our DIA products offer high quality, symmetrical bandwidth, with fast fix times and the flexibility to increase bandwidth as required, as well as great margin opportunities for our resellers. For businesses increasing their use of online applications or who have multiple sites, we can offer an MPLS IPVPN solution which can provide a full range of connectivity and resilience options, including full Quality of Service to ensure that critical real-time applications get the bandwidth they require. Additionally, our designated Data Specialist team provide support and train resellers to help them deliver high volume and high quality business networks across all areas. We’re delighted to be this year’s headline sponsor.”

Hilary Oliver, Marketing Manager, Tollring commented “As the industry leading event for the channel, Convergence Summit is the ideal forum to preview/demonstrate iCS cloud, which not only complements Tollring’s on-premise portfolio, but more importantly widens the market for partners and adds value to their own portfolio of products & services.”

Theresa Williams, Carphone Warehouse, said “Carphone Warehouse Business is attending Convergence Summit South to raise awareness of its reseller partner model for Vodafone’s One Net Business solution. Convergence in the telecommunications industry is swiftly gathering pace and One Net Business is a product that can increase retention through deeper commitment by provisioning more than one service. A recent survey we carried out with Comms Business indicates that most resellers predict that more than 50% of their business will be hosted solutions in the next 5 years and currently there is a lack of awareness and full understanding in the channel of what One Net Business does and how it is truly unique in the FMC space.”
