Another iPad App

April 5, 2012

I get an email daily about how someone launched an iPad app. Wahoo. Apparently, launching an app is now a media event.

People forget a couple of important details:

The Cloud is all about High Availability of data.



The Telecom Ecosystem is Shifting Rapidly

April 2, 2012

The telecom ecosystem consists of a number of pieces: RBOC, ILEC, RLEC, CLEC, ISP, MSO, IXC, ITSP, MSP, data centers, Master Agents, Agents, VAR's. It is shifting.

As carriers migrate from a commodity access business, so too must the master agents, who - more and more - are tying their business models to the preferred carriers.

Master Agents have morphed into a supermarket of services: CLEC, ILEC, MSO, VoIP, MSP and even hardware (like Shoretel).

Dell Gets WYSE

April 2, 2012

Dell announced that it is acquiring WYSE today. WYSE is known for its dummy terminals, particularly for POS (point-of-sale). WYSE also has gotten into desktop virtualization - not that strong a leap.

What is the Market Expecting?

April 1, 2012

Tuesday I was in Vegas at the Channel Partners Conference mainly for the TCA events. At the TCA Channel Chief Summit, Tiffani Bova of Gartner and Rauline Ochs of IPED Market Bridge Alliance presented research. The take away for me was in perspective.

No one buys the way most service providers sell.

T-Mobile Layoffs Called FCC's Fault

March 26, 2012

This makes me laugh. AT&T's SEVP for external and legislative affairs, Cicconi, wrote a post for AT&T's Public Policy blog last week that again attacked the FCC. AT&T blames any T-Mobile Layoffs on the FCC.

Really?

Yet Another Video Conf Start-up

March 23, 2012

Garrett Smith from VoIP Supply wrote, "This service isn't all that new or different from the half dozen or so that already exists. There's either going to be a lot of M&A in video communications OR a lot of companies not making it." Garrett was referring to this TechCrunch article, Blue Jeans CEO Looks To Beat His Two-Time Acquirer Cisco With Low-Cost Video Conferencing. Krish Ramakrishnan says, "It's only a $700 million market." Yet he received $23.5 million in funding already. Why?

The Scoop on TDMobility

March 23, 2012

I spoke with Brian Kosoy, PR manager for Tech Data, and Charles Kriete, the Executive Vice President of TDMobility. Kriete is also the founder of the company that developed some of the key technology (CellManage) in TDMobility. His company was acquired by the joint venture between Tech Data and Brightstar. TDmobility launched recently as a way for VAR's to offer cellular service - handsets, devices, netbooks, tablets, mifi - to their customer base through Tech Data. Give it a listen.

Comcast Versus Netflix

March 20, 2012

IN a Fast Company article, titled "Why Comcast Will Crush Netflix". Comcast will be launching a Netflix killer soon. Why? "The battle to own the "digital home" has been waging for years." The Duopoly does not want to be relegated to being just dumb pipes.
