Why CSPs Will Retain a Strong Position in Video Services

By: Paula Bernier, TMC Executive Editor

Facilities-based service providers that own the access network are ideally positioned to distribute video both today and in the future, according to Chris Croupe, who works in strategic marketing at Alcatel-Lucent. Video comes in a variety of forms, its applications continue to expand, and this kind of content continues to multiply, Croupe notes in his recent TechZine posting, Future of video content: Evolution toward 2020.

Calls leveraging video have become widespread, he adds, noting that 59 percent of smartphone users under 35 years of age make at least one video call a month, and 37 percent of this group does so at least once a week.

JibJab Budweiser

May 30, 2005

I received this comment (see below) on a past JibJab post I made a while ago. Apparently the blogger community is up in arms about JibJab selling out to Budweiser. Apparently JibJab promised not to.

My take? So they did.

LSI Logic

May 27, 2005

I recently had a chance to interview Ramesh Bhimarao the VoIP product Line Manager at LSI Logic on the future of VoIP development. LSI Logic is a leader in VoIP processors for wireless and wired applications and their products form the foundation of many of the next generation VoIP killer devices I am looking forward to seeing.

What trends are you seeing in VoIP development?

Voice over WiFi and VoIP integration with CPE devices such as routers and broadband modems are the definite trends we are seeing in the marketplace.

Is 2005 the best year for VoIP? 2006, etc?

Deployment will accelerate from now until 2008.

May 27th Communications and Technology Podcast

May 27, 2005

Lots of great stuff in the latest communications and technology podcast. I had to bow out but am upset that I did as this one seemed quite good. Hopefully I can participate in next week’s edition.

Cisco Galileo

Announced at Speech-World is Galileo from Cisco is a really cool product that allows speech access to e-mail and calendaring. For those of you that remember Wildfire, it is a similar concept but having the Cisco brand behind it should allow it to be more widely purchased and deployed.



Iberian Lynx

May 27, 2005

With all the deaths of humans in the world I sometimes find it hard to worry about animals. Ethically I am torn to donating to human causes before animal ones. Still, I am a nature lover. I am certainly not someone you would consider green but I love all sorts of animals from fish to big cats.

Dave Hattey and SIPquest

May 27, 2005

Dave Hattey who has done a great job leading 3COM’s VoIP initiatives for years – and has spoken at TMC events in the past, has made the switch to SIPquest. The two companies are partners so they were familiar with each other before Hattey moved. I am not sure who may be taking his spot but Brian Allain just joined 3COM and could be the person who fills Hattey’s shoes. Allain has been in VoIP since the mid nineties and launched Avaya’s (Lucent at the time) foray into the IP PBX market .
