The GSMA’s Future Networks Programme will be hosting the next RCS Operator Roundtable at Mobile 360 Russia. The Roundtable will bring together Operators who have launched, or are about to launch RCS, and those with an interest in providing this technology to their customers.

The RCS Roundtable will provide a platform for Operators to discuss the opportunities that RCS and RCS Business Messaging will bring to both Person-to-Person and Application-to-Person communications. It will give participants the opportunity to share lessons learned with their peers, hear from other global leaders on RCS and discuss the most successful ways to collaborate to build in RCS success in the region.

At the RCS Roundtable, you will hear from high-profile speakers from Google, Mavenir, Samsung, Summit Tech and Syniverse.


Please note, this Roundtable is for for MNOs only. Please do not register if you are not from an Operator as unfortunately you will not be able to attend this particular event. Instead, you are very welcome to attend the GSMA RCS Business Messaging Lab which is open to both MNOs and non-MNOS and will take place at the same venue on the morning of the 31 October before the Roundtable.
