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.

February 20, 2017



We were just reading the wrap-up from Calysto Communications. PRVibes of IoT Evolution Expo Florida 2017, a few weeks back on Fort Lauderdale. We are humbled by the nice comments - thanks to all of you for making the show a success... Sponsors, speakers, attendees, the TMC team and Crossfire Media.

Here are a few of the nicest comments worth sharing (emphasis added by us):
The real value of IoT, in our opinion and that of many of the analysts that we speak with on a regular basis, will be found in the enterprise.




How Microsoft Just Scared the IT Community to Death

February 14, 2017



Brad Smith
, the President and Chief Legal Officer at Microsoft spoke recently at a conference and wrote about the need for a Digital Geneva Convention which would do a number of things. For example, it would eliminate targeting of tech companies, assist the private sector in dealing with attacks and restrain cyber-weapon development. “Conflicts between nations are no longer confined to the ground, sea and air, as cyberspace has become a potential new and global battleground,” he said.

The company went on to say it spends a tremendous amount on cybersecurity but it isn't enough... We need to do more, a lot more.

Why should this scare us to death?

How ITEXPO Has Transformed into THE Communications Event

January 19, 2017

Recently, we have had a great deal of feedback from attendees commenting that ITEXPO in Florida (Yes, Florida, in February – and airfares are literally dirt cheap) has evolved to become THE communications event – for the Americas and beyond. We are humbled by the comments but the credit goes to my team who tirelessly looks to improve each event with fresh new content.

An analyst told me once that the show is so full of information that you run around like a chicken with your head cut off, except he said it Yiddish which made it sound more exotic.



I wasn’t sure at the time if it was a compliment but in a way it is the testament that the show has so much important information that you really need a team to cover it all.

We at TMC want to do our part to help. To the extent that these workers need to update their skills to remain relevant in an evolving tech world and potentially look for new opportunities for employment, we invite them to take advantage of 50% off of our events coming to South Florida/Fort Lauderdale.

ORBCOMM Looks to Become Complete IoT Solutions Service Provider

October 17, 2016

One of the topics discussed often among communications service providers is whether they want to be relegated to dumb pipes or they want to add services and increase the value of their offerings. The latter idea generally wins out and the concept also applies to satellite providers like ORBCOMM. I recently sat down to talk about the company with Sue Rutherford, VP of Marketing and we discussed how the organization has evolved by adding transportation management expertise through acquisitions.



The goal of the company is to become a solutions service provider, covering all parts of the IoT ecosystem.
