10 Seismic Communications Trends Creating Billions in New Value

March 20, 2017

People need not apply in our brave new communications future





Communications was once a person-to-person mechanism allowing individuals to collaborate or share information with others. The move from traditional phone networks to VoIP, from wired to wireless, from voice to chat all involved two or more people at the ends of conversations.

The next wave however will represent the largest shift in our lifetimes - the most important communications innovations in the next decade will transcend people.

Tablets Cheaper Than Starbucks?

February 5, 2017

The price of electronics and telecommunications services have plummeted for decades in contrast to the cost of things like global wages or real estate in many parts of the world. We've gotten tot he point where Wal-Mart advertises tablets for an insanely low $35. Specifically, the RCA Voyager 7" 16GB Tablet Android 6.0 (Marshmallow). Contrast this to the cost of a very expensive coffee.

A few years back, Florida resident William Lewis ordered his 101-espresso-shot latte at his local Starbucks that cost $83.75 and came with 17 pumps of vanilla syrup, mocha and green tea matcha powder served with steamed milk.

January 24, 2017


8x8 has seen its stock triple in the past five years as they move upmarket and take share from telecom hardware players. Interestingly, this increment is the exact same amount of time its been since ShoreTel acquired M5 to provide cloud solutions to customers.

This is what we said at the time:
Cisco may now be forced to buy 8x8 and Avaya will likely make a move as well. This move could even push Vonage to go after the SMB space. Mitel is an interesting question - they have leading edge tech but a troubled stock to use as currency.



Broadsoft UCaaS Leader - See Them Live @ITEXPO

January 23, 2017

IHS Markit has named Broadsoft the global Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) platform leader, with 38% of the total worldwide UCaaS seats running on its platforms, as of the second quarter of 2016.  According to the IHS study, the BroadSoft UCaaS global market leadership position places it ahead of its closest competitors.

“The UCaaS market today is comprised of pure-plays, network operators, cable MSOs, ISPs, system integrators, and traditional premises-based vendors. With a multitude of options, things can be confusing for businesses trying to find the right provider and service to fit their needs,” said Diane Myers, senior research director of VoIP, UC, and IMS for IHS Markit and author of the fourth quarter 2016 Analyst Insight report.
