11.15: Analyst Presentation: Myanmar’s Connectivity Rollout - Jose Del Rosario, Research Director, NSR
Myanmar can leapfrog its current teledensity and connectivity levels by use of satellite technology as part of its core infrastructure.  Many offerings and combinations are available where achieving the right solution mix will be vital for short-term, mid-term and long-term usability of the platform choice.  This presentation will discuss the options available to Myanmar to sustainably achieve its highly ambitious goals as well as raise issues that could impede not just ICT development but overall economic development.

11.35 Panel: Myanmar’s Connectivity Rollout, Broadband offering opportunity to make rapid advances in social and economic development.  The increase in the level of broadband access and connectivity, particularly wireless connectivity, has led to sharp gains in economic development around the globe.  For developing countries and emerging markets like Myanmar, cost and total cost of ownership (TCO) will be key elements that spell the difference between rapid rollout and thus high social and economic development or a market and/or program that fails to be realized.
