CommunicaAsia, PTC, and ITCN Asia, Hottest Conferences in the East

July 5, 2009

Ruckuss Wireless, at http://www.ruckuswireless.com, is a popular service provider as is evident by the crowds at their booth at CommunicAsia 2009 in Singapore and I remember the same at their booth at EXPOCOMM Mexico 2007. Michael Paparella was the spokesperson on this video on Youtube

The company offers solutions for multi-media in the WIFI industry. They choose to participate in CommunicAsia each year because of the yearly accomplishment of building new business solutions with current and new partners.

One common theme I heard over and over at CommunicAsia 2009 from participants, whether sponsors, attendees, exhibitors and other press agents was that CommunicAsia draws more participation from the right people and companies in the APEC region ...

Optimistic Tenor in Market Turmoil

July 4, 2009

Greg Galitzine quoted Rob Pullens, Tellabs CEO, in a discussion about the market turmoil, in the May 2009 NGN magazine, "That certainly surprised me," said Pullen, "and as you can imagine, like everyone else, our revenues were slightly affected downward. And so in this tough economic time, we need to look around and say, 'we're going to invest our way through this, we're going to emerge stronger on the remote end, but we're going to manage our cash flow and profitability along the way,' that is, things that are in our control. I can't control when the macroeconomic marker's going to improve, but I can control who we manage our expenses, improve our profitability, and keep close to our customers.

I think the two key points made are to invest your way through and keep close to your customers. Not saying to throw money at everyone and everything.

Carl is Correct: Mobile Apps the Craze

July 2, 2009

Carl Ford is great about updating us all on what to look forward to in the 4G Wireless Evolution scheduled for Sept 1-3, 2009. He has my absolute agreement on this intro statement: "It seems the mobile consumer can not get enough of their share of mobile applications... "

In fact, he goes on to say, "The iPhone store, Android store and similar initiatives from Nokia and RIM suggest power is shifting away from the operators and into the hands of application developers and the end user."

Half of the updates I read from those who I am following on Twitter are about mobile and mobile-related conferences, applications, equipment, services, and peripherals.
