MEET THE EXECUTIVE COUNCIL
Industry Luminaries to Drive the Telecom Industry in Singapore
At ATiS, we believe that the key to establishing Singapore as a leader in the Telecommunications industry is by being deeply connected to the local government, associated industry bodies, and large and small commercial businesses alike. That’s why we count on our Executive Council, made up of dedicated, talented, and professional experts, to represent Singapore's Telecom industry. Check out the team and let us know what we can do for you.
As 2019 moves into 2020, we will see a dramatic change in the Telecommunications landscape. Internet of Things (IOT), Software Defined Networks (SDN) including Software Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN) and Over The Top (OTT) applications are some of the more visible technology that are being used and tested more.
ATiS continues to work with the Infocommunications Media Development Authority (IMDA) in the Technical Standards committee for Radio Frequency (RF) as well as bilateral meetings between IMDA and MCMC (Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission).
ATiS is also active in the Asian Telecommunications Information Exchange (ATIE) which will be held later this year in New Delhi, in conjunction with a Smart Nation event. India has about 100 Smart City projects and ATiS will explore collaboration in a consortium to bid for selected cities.
ATiS is also invited to many regional annual events like Global Sources in Hong Kong every April and October, as well as being one of the judges at the Asia Communications Awards during CommunicAsia week.
ATiS organises Telecom Tuesday, a foremost networking event held quarterly , usually with a speaker of a current topic of interest, like SDN, Bitcoin/crypto-currency and Cloud services.
Two areas that ATiS will explore are:
Cyber-security, as Service providers have millions of subscribers, the impact will be greatest if there are any breach.
Training, as members find difficulty in employing Singaporeans in professional roles like Network Engineering and Solution Architecture as Web, mobile and cellular networks converge.
ATiS will continue to offer its members, networking opportunities, particularly with similar Telecom Industry organisations.
