Partnering and Metcalfe’s Law

October 9, 2006

You may have had a chance to read my article a while back about Metcalfe’s Law and peering. The article mentions the power of any network increases as a square of the number of nodes on the network.

While this is plainly understood for networks consisting of many fax machines and peering of all sorts it may not be understood in the world of partnering. It seems the more vendors I speak with lately the more partnering I hear about.

This sentiment was reinforced when I saw the news from ITEXPO this week about NetLogic who provides business class VoIP and data partnering with Switchvox a developer of Asterisk-based IP PBX systems. Together the companies will develop next generation VoIP products and services.

And when you think about it the partnership makes sense as one company provides service and the other hardware.





Visiting FaxBack at ITEXPO

October 9, 2006

I got this editorial pitch today for ITEXPO. You know I notice so many companies calling the show incorrectly IP Telephony Conference & Expo instead of Internet Telephony Conference & Expo – actually IP Telephony is a more inclusive term than Internet Telephony. The reason we chose Internet telephony for the name of the magazine and the show was at the time Internet was the pervasive term and IP was unknown. After the bubble burst many people predicted the death of all publications with the term internet in their titles.

Amman Jordan the latest ITEXPO Country

October 9, 2006

Mike Genaro TMC's VP of Marketing informs me the latest new country to register for ITEXPO is an engineer from a service provider located in Amman Jordan. You probably noticed we have been tracking just how many countries ITEXPO attracts attendees from. Perhaps the best part of my job is having events where I get to see the growing TMC community live.

As you may know up to a million unique visitors come to TMCnet every month for the highest quality news and information in the communications and technology markets.
