During the recent 2020 Vision Executive Summit in Iceland (an event intended to envision the telecom landscape five years from now), Heavy Reading conducted a survey of attendees from more than 400 global service providers, exploring the impact of IP networks in the 21st century.

These changes will inevitably transform service provider business models, and some are more confident than others about being able to adapt.
