Get Your Net-Head On

January 11, 2011

So at CVX @ITEXPO on Thursday, Feb. 3rd at 3:15 PM I will be presenting about the need for Net-Heads in the Channel again. (It was originally presented at CVX at ITEXPO East in LA in October of 2010.) The session is titled, "Crossing the Channel Chasm". Please come listen.

So you have some background on the Net-Head concept of mine, download this free e-book that collects all of my writings on this TMC blog and in Internet Telephony magazine in one quick, short read.

Proceed With Coupon Caution

Rich Tehrani points out that Groupon may not be the best friend for small businesses because it attracts the least valuable customer.

My pal uses Groupon and others to drive traffic. His costs cover the coupon and profit. He hopes for return visits to really make up the profit.

Rumor: VZW iPhone

January 10, 2011

Twitter is all abuzz about the special announcement tomorrow by VZW in NYC. Dan York says that he can't see Steve Jobs letting VZW have the lead on this story. I agree. Everyone is certain that the iPhone will be out on Verizon's xG network by the end of 1Q2011.

2 More Acquisitions

January 6, 2011

Rumor from SFGate is it that Skype bought Qik for $100 million. Qik's smartphone video streaming service has grown to 5 million users. That doesn't mean revenue though - and Skype should know, right? Only 6% of its 124 million users contribute to the bottom line.

Smoothstone Has Patience with Sprint

January 6, 2011

Sprint finally lands a partner in its Mobile Convergence system. After spending much of 2010 talking with Sprint about the MVNO and Integration options, I applaud the patience of Smoothstone, which announced today the availability of Smoothstone's cloud-based voice solutions combined with Mobile Integration delivered over the Sprint Global MPLS network to provide unprecedented flexibility and performance for the most dynamic and demanding businesses. In English, that means that Smoothstone's softswitch (Broadsoft it seems) is connected to Sprint's network via an MPLS link to allow customers that also have a Sprint mobile phone to have full integration with the Hosted PBX. In essence, the Sprint cell phone becomes an extension on the PBX.

All the trends, lists, predictions are out now. Of course, UC is will see record growth and Cloud Computing too. No kidding! They are both in infancy (relatively speaking), so there is nowhere to go but up.

Net-heads Grab the Gold Ring

January 3, 2011

Over on Voyces Larry Lisser blogs about 4 communications startups that received funding in 4Q2010.  (Pertinent because Communications Startup Camp is in less than a month on Feb. 3 at ITEXPO!) What made the story stand out for me is that all the innovation in communications is coming from Net-Heads not Bell-Heads. Software developers are shipping great Art.

Verizon coming up with another stupid slogan or the ability for a largely technophobic consumer to watch the same movie on 3 devices is not a great advance.  I'll give them some credit for the social networks widgets, but again not easy for the general public to pull off.

Meanwhile Net-heads are making mashups; designing friendly UI; and allowing the small business to take full advantage of the web/apps/cloud.

For example, Tampa local's Charles Armstrong launched the iPhone app Tour Wrist in 2010 at TEDX Tampa Bay
