The banks of the Rhine River will be bustling from the 4th to the 6th of June.  ANGA COM – Exhibition and Congress for Broadband, Cable and Satellite is taking place in Cologne, Germany. As the industry leader in providing eCommerce and payment technologies to the media and entertainment industries, MPP Global will be taking advantage of all that this year’s exhibition and congress have to offer with SmartTV, Multiscreen and the connected home highlighting the 2013 event.

The leading event of its kind in Europe, ANGA COM attracts manufacturers, service providers, network operators and content providers to the telecommunications and media industry from around the globe.

At MPP Global, we are keenly interested in the growth of this year’s ANGA COM Congress.  It consists of four top-level industry summits and 18 strategy and technology panels with all presentations translated simultaneously in English and German.

The TV summit opens day one and with our eye trained toward effective payment solutions, we are eager to hear what insights Frank Thomsen, Editor-in-chief of, will provide in his module, Network and Content: Who Pays the Bill?

Day two is the Broadband summit and is stacked with such hot button topics as, Pay TV vs Over the Top – Potentials and Perspective, TV Everywhere, Mobile and WiFi: From Network Operator to MSO and DVB -UHDTV and Content Protection – Major Steps into a New World!?

Day three introduces the “Connected Home Special”, an entirely new aspect to ANGA COM for 2013.  This final summit presents on subjects central to ANGA’s core theme, “where broadband meets content”.  Partnered with the Federal Association of Information Technology, Telecommunications and New Media (BITKOM), this joint event will no doubt prove to be an invaluable gateway for those eager to stay on the leading edge.

MPP Globalwill be certain to get a front row seat for the Monetizing Multiscreen, International Experiences: Multiscreen Technologies and Managing a Smart Home.  These three in-depth presentations will benefit from industry experts addressing subjects like, advertising on Connected TVand cross-platform video advertising on the second screen, making Multiscreen and OTT an offensive strategy, residential gateways, driving customer benefit and trends in device and service management for the connected home.
