The Regulatory tools required for a converged ecosystem

Once again we held our regional IRF ahead of the Miami Telecommunications and Media Forum.
We invited senior level regulators from more than 25 countries to come together to discuss the issues that confront them in a constantly evolving market. With simultaneous translation (English and Spanish), this meeting provided an invaluable forum for senior level regulators from the Caribbean, the Latin American region and beyond to share ideas and debate with peers outside their region.
