Alcatel-Lucent CEO Michel Combes on Importance of Bringing Ultra-Broadband to Africa

By: Peter Bernstein, TMCnet Senior Editor

It may be almost cliché to say we live in a global economy, but many times when globalization is discussed the focus is on developed and emerging markets and not that often, if at all, on under-developed regions.  In fact, in the past few years until the recent drop in oil prices, much of the financial community’s and economic development interests has been focused on the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa).  This leaves out not just most of South America, but the promising rest of Africa which contains a wealth of rare minerals and other natural resources waiting to be literally and figuratively mined.

However, for most of the African continent countries to move from under-developed status, along with toward political stability and having a educated citizenry, infrastructure needs to be in place which it currently is not. This means not just giving the populace access to clean water and energy, but in a digital world ubiquitous and affordable access to businesses and individuals to high-speed broadband communications is now not just a foundation but a pre-condition that is essential for moving ahead.  

In this regard it is enlightening, refreshing and significant that Alcatel-Lucent CEO Michel Combes recently wrote a corporate blog stressing the company’s interest in working with governments and commercial interests to help accelerate economic development across the continent.  This about not just about the Oscar winning movie of several years ago “Out of Africa”, but is also about around, into and across Africa.

Your IP Communications Biz is Up and Running and Ping! Malware Arrives

August 23, 2010

What to do?

1. Take site offline, and replace with an "under maintenance" page.
2. Work out how the malware got there. The most recent was via an SQL injection vulnerability (HP(?) produce a useful scanner for these); another was down to an unpatched underlying operating system.

Geography Teacher in Past Life, Local Presence in New Life, Romania this Time

August 17, 2010

As a middle school instructor and grant writer for over 15 years, I had the challenging experience of teaching English, gifted studies, Introduction to Foreign Languages, Introduction to Mechanics for Girls, American History, Civics and Geography. 

All were enough to make me where I could not wait to awake each morning to go to work! Geography and Civics were two of my favorites, especially when I used Sim City as the basis, the focal point! So today class, let's talk about Romania. (Is this Charlie Brown's teacher?

Who am I? We should all ask this.

August 17, 2010

So who am I? Let's get this straight, world. I am not a good salesperson. I never was. If I sold anything, it was by accident and because I knew someone really needed what I was wishing they would take.

I am, instead, a good and natural communicator, collaborator, idea person, mentor, trainer, and marketer. 

For example, just this last week, I brought in around nine new wholesale members to www.didx.net because together among me, them, and our DIDX Care Team, we were able to find out "their" needs and were able to help them find what they need using DIDXchange.

Facebook Wall Discussion on iPad, iPhone, ATT, Apple by Users

August 16, 2010

Daily, I thank my Facebook and Linkedin networks as well as those I follow and those who follow me on Twitter. Why? So many reasons, but one of them is the fun blog posts they allow me after I get their permission.

So, here's the latest.

Ron V.: So you have the iPhone I take it? Have you jailbroken it?

Suzanne Bowen: No iPhone yet.





MagicJack not sent yet ... #whatisgoodsocialnetworking collaboration?

August 12, 2010

I didn't receive the MagicJack device yet, but did get the Nettalk new UNO. Waiting to get the MJ gadget first, so I can do a true comparison with videos, pics, charts, and text review mix.

Meanwhile, hey, the last 9 days of July and first 12 of August were FTL. I stopped to breathe for a second today and realized I haven't blogged on here in a while. Let me ask my thousands of wonderful IP communications related industry friends for one small favor.

Do you tweet?

Connect with Middle East and Asia News, Partners, and Customers

July 19, 2010

Take advantage of the excellent news sites in the East. We've got the best of the best here in the West like http://www.tmcnet.com ... also RCR Wireless, Fierce, TechCrunch, etc., but what about the other billions of people, services, investors, partners, customers, and other organizations in the East who would love to do business with you. None of these have religious or radical undertones unless you call merging, buy-outs, hiring professionals, and new business development radical?

Some that I recommend:
1. http://teletechwire.com/ for press releases, based in U.A.E and Pakistan.

New Nettalk DUO Device Connects to Router or Computer

July 14, 2010

The DUO carries on the capability of being the only device in the world flexible enough to connect directly to your router's internet connection OR through your computer? 

Techistan reports on it and will soon offer a product review. Nettalk offers unlimited outgoing calls to USA and Canada  at $69.95 the first year including the DUO device. The second year is $29.95 ...

That breaks down to $2.50 per month for free nationwide calling throughout the USA and Canada plus all of our other calling features without monthly phone bills and contracts. 

Why would anyone want to use a "home phone" or a "business phone" that is not a cell phone or on a PBX like this? There are millions.
