Metro Networks Must be Optimized in Multiple Dimensions

By: Dave Brown, Product Marketing, Alcatel-Lucent

  • Scalable – to have the capacity you need when you need it to aggregate and transport multiple, high-performance services

Look Another Road Show (and Presentation)

October 28, 2014

Presentation after presentation is what the shows are all about. Sponsors pay for the show, so they get to stand on stage and give a presentation. That would be fine if the presentations didn't suck.

That's right.

What's the Difference?

October 28, 2014

As I have been trying to add up, there has to be 2000 service providers offering some kind of Hosted VoiP. There are about 1000 ILECs of one size or another (NTCA, NCTC, ITTA) and about another 900 MSO's. In addition, the ISPs or ITSPs offering Asterisk service or using Netsapiens, Ipifony, Broad River, or other white label softswitch operator. There are 300+ Broadsoft clients in the US (main of which are ILECs and MSOs).

Notes from Connections 2014

October 13, 2014

Broadsoft Connections kicked off with the usual festivities yesterday including a pool party and a summer fashion show. This morning it was all business as the attendees were treated to presentations (including one by ANPI's David Byrd pictured), which produced some interesting data.

Only 3 percent of business lines are Hosted PBX. <-- That means two things: lots of potential and the sales teams suck at selling HPBX.

Tidbits of Telecom and Other News

Makes you think, right? It also makes me think that regulations hold back some innovation. AirBnB, Uber and Tesla Motors challenge long-standing regulations. But really what holds it all back is the power (industry) behind said regulations - like Big Oil, Big Pharma, the Duopoly.
