ITEXPO East 2011 Rumors so Far

February 1, 2011

ITEXPO here in Miami officially starts tomorrow but there are already lots of talk and rumors of note.

First off is the FCC may give credence to the notion next month that POTS needs to die. The carrying costs of this legacy network are massive and the 5ESS switches are 30 years old and you have to get the spare parts from eBay. 911 is a reason to not kill POTs but some predict that if the FCC gives a 10 year deadline for the death of POTs, the telecom network equipment market will see a surge in business which may even rival Y2K times.

Also, Arunis Chesonis the CEO of PATEC is in India and may be working on a deal with an Indian telco or a possible acquisition. Maybe a sale? We'll see.

Moreover, the voice peering market is saving more that $250M/year for cable companies and others.

February 1, 2011

There are several service providers participating at ITEXPO, including 360networks. I'm told Randy Muench, President of CFN Services Wireless Division, 360 Networks is speaking at one of ITEXPO's 4G conference sessions. Today 360networks announced they've upgraded their IP network, which they claim will improve customers’ transit economics of scale and network performance

360networks is a facilities-based wholesale provider of Private Line Transport, Ethernet, IP, VoIP and Local Access services. With this upgrade the company’s wholesale customers are better able to keep pace with demand for capacity from new IP applications and mobile users by benefitting from increased operating efficiency and network performance.
