Over the Top (OTT) services refer to the delivery of voice, video and data to end users through an unmanaged method over a network which is not provided by that network operator. As various services such as voice, texting, and broadcasting are converging, OTT services revolutionize the way in which ICT services are offered, foster innovation and create value added. On the other hand, they are affecting the whole broadband ecosystem including mainly fixed and mobile network operators. The impact of OTT can be seen in the rapid increase in the data traffic in recent years.
Within this context, this session is aimed at examining the implications of OTT services and facilitating a discussion among network operators, content providers and regulators.
Each speaker will be given 5-7 minutes to present his/her views on the issue. Then the floor will be open to participants also since the aim is to have an inclusive and open discussion on the subject. The social media contributors will also be given a voice by the moderator.
