Watch the Pilot of RAG TV

RAG wants to bring its free interactive content to as wide an audience as possible, and so we have been experimenting with live streaming via Twitch and then making the episodes available on demand through YouTube, with all this presented on the dedicated RAG TV portal on this website.


Hosted by Eric Priezkalns, each half-hour episode will feature a rundown of recent news, analysis from experts like Lee Scargall and special guests from telcos and vendors.


Audiences for the live stream will also be able to get involved. RAG Television has been set up so audiences can ask questions in real-time through the same interactive online system that we use at RAG conferences.


Take a look at the following pilot episode to see what RAG Television will be like; the topics covered include national RA audits, mobile ad fraud, research into internet piracy and the RAG Leakage Coverage Survey.


We are now looking for guests and sponsors for the first scheduled season of episodes. If you would like to contribute to the making of RAG TV, please let us know.

New Annual Sponsorship Round

The last annual sponsorship round, held at the end of 2018, was so popular that RAG closed deals with 13 annual sponsors, leaving no stage time for other sponsors across four international conferences. If you work for a vendor or consultancy and you wish to engage with RAG’s global community then talk to us now about becoming a sponsor of the next cycle of conferences, beginning with RAG London in May.


Demand outstrips supply because RAG strictly limits the number of sponsors who may speak and attend, enhancing the benefit to those sponsors that do participate. Do not delay; contact us today if you are hoping to play an active role in a cycle of conferences that will travel to Europe, North America, the Middle East and Asia.

Future Events

Trial of Wangiri Blockchain Ledger

RAG, in partnership with Orillion, is building a distributed database of numbers used in wangiri attacks. Blockchain technology makes this database uniquely quick and easy to access. Telcos and vendors who share their data may access the ledger without charge. The following video shows the user interface.


Live trials involving multiple telcos have begun. To learn more, look here.
