Batteries Not Included

November 20, 2014

One of the hurdles for the TDM-to-IP Transition is the power outage. With POTS lines, the dial-tone is powered from the central office, so even with a blackout for a while the consumers can still dial 911.

With VoIP, notsomuch - the broadband modem has to have battery backup, the ATA has to have battery backup and the provider has to have battery backup at the POP. That's a lot of batteries!

VoIP Velocity, But Tie Your Shoelaces First

November 19, 2014

The numbers that ANPI collected from Gartner about VoIP and UC point to market velocity for VoIP.

By the end of 2015, "60% of all North American enterprises will move at least 30% of their voice communication to the cloud" -- Gartner

The IP Voice services market is currently growing at a 28.8% compound annual growth rate -- Gartner

The problem is that most service providers are tripping over their shoelaces while trying to run this race.

Comcast Merger Will Pressure CLECs

November 19, 2014

The CLEC industry has a few problems:

  1. TDM-to-IP Transition
  2. USF Reform (E-Rate, ETC)
  3. Consolidation
  4. Special Access Pricing

The biggest problem by far is the Comcast-TWC merger. It will replace 2 large MSOs (Comcast + TWC) with 2 much larger service providers (Comcast & Charter). Comcast is already huge - $17B in the last Quarter! Smaller than AT&T's consolidated revenues of $33.0 billion for the quarter ended September 30, 2014.

Women Owned Start-up Code School Gets Investment

November 13, 2014

Tampa Bay had a little celebration this week as a women-owned start-up called gr8code received $5.4 million investment.

This is big for a number of reasons. It is one of the largest investments in a women-owned start-up in Florida. It is early stage money for a Tampa Bay based start-up, which is almost unheard of in this community.

Dali, Picasso and UC

November 10, 2014

Last month, the Salvador Dali Museum finished up its Andy Warhol tour. Warhol and Dali knew each other. They both also knew - and were influenced by - Pablo Picasso. (For example, Head After Picasso (1985) by Andy Warhol.) This weekend, The Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, FL, opened its Picasso exhibit.

2 Things About Content Marketing

November 7, 2014

One thing about content marketing is that while everyone is talking about, few people are doing it well.

Great quote from GapingVoid about it, "You have to love them every day, even if they don't buy from you every day." Give Value every day. Show that it isn't just about the contract and invoice.

As Seth Godin reminds businesses, media has changed; now everyone is a media company.
