One Line, Multiple Caller-ID

January 14, 2010

A while back I saw research showing a much higher rate of answered calls if they originate from the same area code. After researching for a while I can't find the source for the information but it is an intuitive assumption so I feel comfortable sharing it with my readers and apologize for not having a source.

I thought about this research when I heard The Flat Planet has a new service which matches the number you call with the Caller-ID information of a local number. Debt collection and outbound call centers are two obvious areas where the service should be of great use.

Ixia Raises Forecast for Q4

January 14, 2010

In the past I have looked to testing companies as barometers of growth in the communications market. Oftentimes they can be utilized as a forward-looking indicator - a sign of optimism or pessimism in the market.

Admittedly in a more complex world where broadband, VoIP and wireless are growing at varying levels and landlines are dying, it may be more difficult to make a solid correlation as product mix and marketshare per segment can throw you off. Moreover, testing companies have to build test systems without the benefit of standardized components meaning they have to construct many of their systems from the component level up.

Amtrak adds WiFi to Fight Disruptive Free Bus Internet

January 12, 2010

 


Years after
European train operators and the airlines, Amtrak has decided it was time to add WiFi to its trains. Bus companies have found a way to sell seats for as little as $1 between New York and Boston and provide free WiFi while the train generally sells seats which start in the $50 range and as you might imagine, this fierce competition has meant the union-operated trains are losing customers and they need to fight back.

So it is a bit surprising that the new WiFi service will initially be offered on the company's fastest and most expensive trains - the Acela Express.

One would suppose this is an initial trial of course and eventually even more competitive pressure will force the company to roll out wireless service across all seats at a low rate.

One of the most trusted names in communications Carl Ford - was explaining to me recently how the upcoming tutorial on SIP at ITEXPO, January 20-22, 2010 in Miami will be the best session on SIP - anywhere. He mentioned it in passing and then I realized - wait a minute - I didn't even blog it. Am I being unfaithful to my readers? Well just in case, I decided to blog away.
