August 24, 2010

I have lots of exciting news to report about ITEXPO West 2010 Oct 4-6 in Los Angeles - there will be a total of 12 collocated events at the show. Some of these include, 4GWE, Smart Grid, M2M, CVx, SPEC, Cloud Communications, MSPWorld, SIP Tutorial, VI Peering, App-Time and Lightwave ONE. There is also a Social CRM Expo, MSP World and much more.

I am trying to keep my readers up to date on what is happening in what is probably the most exciting tech week of the year.

Dialogic Eyes Video Compression, SBC Market with Veraz Acquisition

August 10, 2010

For those of you in telecom for decades you remember how in the mid-nineties Dialogic was the major company producing hardware and software building blocks in what we called the computer telephony/CTI spaces. They provided the market with DSP resource boards which at first powered simple voicemail systems but as Microsoft and Novell tried to muscle their way into the communications space, the world realized for the first time that telecom was becoming open and companies like Dialogic had the tools to convert analog signals into digital form and back.

A few years later the company was purchased by Intel and the brand became diluted and the company for all practical purposes fell off the radar. As an industry insider it was shocking really as an entire ecosystem of partners all of a sudden had to market and push product on their own.

Book ITEXPO Now to Save Hundreds

August 4, 2010

Today is the last day to save hundreds or thousands on registration

We have been seeing an incredible stream of registrations for ITEXPO and related events and as is always the case, my team has done its absolute best to make this show better than ever. At TMC we take education extremely seriously and in a trade show market where companies regularly fold up and go away, we are proud to be putting on industry-leading events for 24 years.

What I have personally learned over the years is if you provide the best education to your customers with a wide enough array of topics, your attendees walk away very happy.

Support for Net Neutrality Wanes in Tech Community

July 28, 2010

I just came across an article worthy of passing along from the Technology Liberation Front, a group which is focused on helping to reduce the amount of regulation imposed on the Internet and technology. Aside from a typo or two (I make them as swell  ) the excellent article titled Amazon.com Switches Sides on Net Neutrality focuses on how tech companies who once supported net neutrality are scared to death of being caught in the crosshairs of an administration gone wild with overregulation.

The article begins by discussing how Amazon's Pail Misener has for all practical purposes switched sides on the net neutrality issue as discussed in an editorial for CNET. Some of the points in the post have to do with net neutrality being a solution in need of a problem.

Many of you in the communications and technology spaces already know Andy Abramson as he is a well-known and influential blogger. But what you may not realize about Andy's company Comunicano is it is a major player in the world of influencer relations. By capitalizing on a strategy which Andy describes as the boulevard of communications, his company works with his clients to ensure their news turns into stories which are told and retold throughout the web and other media outlets.
 


As you can see from the inverted pyramid above, Comunicano segments the disparate audiences necessary to push a product along the influencer road to ultimately convince followers to purchase.


They Should call it Cursed Phone 4

July 19, 2010

I have written repeatedly about how Apple is in an amazing position and how competing with the company is becoming very difficult. The company's desktops and laptops are getting a massive lift from the buzz surrounding the iPod, iPhone and iPad and as more people buy these aforementioned devices, the community of customers purchasing music and apps soars.

Many companies have cycles they go through - no organization has a share price or business which goes straight up.
