Why TelePacific is Re-Branding

March 24, 2017

Will SD-WAN Crush Cisco?

March 14, 2017

As more and more providers add SD-WAN, what happens to Cisco (and ADTRAN and Juniper)?

Telecom Tidbits #2446

February 23, 2017

Nine major companies were compromised, including Sanrio, the owners of the Hello Kitty brand; Supercell, a popular mobile gaming company; and Popeyes Louisiana Chicken, a well-known fast food chain. And 44 percent of the January breaches included stolen passwords, Social Security numbers or dates of birth.

CenturyLink Buying Level3: Dumb Idea

October 31, 2016

The rumor on Friday turned out to be true: CenturyLink is buying Level3. CenturyLink has its roots in the RLEC business. It has acquired a number of smaller RLECs throughout the years including VZ and GTE assets. In 2002, it started making mistakes when it sold its cellular business to ALLTEL.

October 28, 2016

This was the big rumor yesterday that the Wall Street Journal started. There was speculation back in July about Level3 being up for sale. There even was the rumor that Comcast was going to buy L3.
