SLOVAKIA’S largest telecom company, Slovak Telekom (ST), held its 6th Telekom Day conference for fourth- and fifth-year technical students at universities in Bratislava on November 18. The event gave attendees an unusual opportunity to become acquainted with the latest trends and ideas directly from the company’s experts and listen to lectures focused on technologies and applications used by ST, the company said.
The main theme of this year’s event was the integration of technologies.
“When selecting the theme we were inspired by what moved us forward the most this year, i.e. the integration of our fixed-line and mobile operators into one company,” said Petra Berecová, the HR director of ST.
Berecová opened the conference along with Rüdiger J. Schultz, ST’s chief operating officer for networks and IT, who presented the integration of the two operators from the technological point of view. In the following block of expert presentations students were given information about the implementation of the latest technological platforms across the whole spectrum of mobile, fixed-line and multimedia products in the company.
As well as the 80 students from Slovak universities, students from a university in Leipzig with which Slovak Telekom cooperates when exchanging expert lecturers and representatives of Slovak technical academia also attended.
At the event students had the chance to show their abilities, especially when it came to solving a model case study with the help of ST experts. ST managers monitored the students and, as in previous years, did not rule out the possibility of jobs being offered to the best students. Last year’s case-study winner, Pavol Miklík, is now working for ST.
