2019 Feedback

"At TC3, I was able to meet wonderful partners that I couldn't meet through our company network. And also I was able to learn about the latest startup collaboration cases into the telecom industry."
            —Go Hirai, General Manager at NTT Comware

"WTFast has been getting some great traction with broadband providers. TC3 was the perfect event for us to leverage that traction and get conversations happening with more broadband providers."

Swisscom and Arrivy

“TC3 is one of the most valuable events for Telecom professionals in the Silicon Valley. It gives Swisscom the opportunity to meet directly with startups bringing technology and business innovation. We had follow ups with several companies we met at TC3 and we integrated one of them in our offering. If you are a startup developing a cutting edge technology or a disruptive business model in the Telecom, Cloud, Security or Big Data, please meet me at the TC3!”
  —Stefan Petzov, Head of Technology and Innovation at Swisscom

CableLabs and Blitzz

“In 2017, we met the founders of Blitzz, which is revolutionizing the way that MSOs handle the customer experience. Their goal is to make truck-rolls a “one-and-done” experience for subscribers, and their use of Augmented Reality is driving that new experience. A few months after we met at TC3, we invited Blitzz to an event with the Customer Experience leaders across the industry, and after getting rave reviews, we are excited to welcome them to our UpRamp Fiterator program. None of this success for Blitzz would be possible without the connections made at TC3.”
  —Scott Brown, Executive Director of UpRamp, backed by CableLabs
