Agents Need Training

November 1, 2011

According to David Byrd of Broadvox, agents and VAR's need more training when it comes to SIP. As he wrote in his Wild Mushroom post, "Too often we encounter a situation where an agent sells a SIP Trunk with no understanding of the difference between it and a PRI. This can lead to a disastrous situation. First, an agent needs to understand that the bandwidth require per phone call is more with G.711 not less than a PRI.

There's No Spectrum Shortage

October 31, 2011

"US mobile networks currently have access to 538Mhz of radio spectrum -- with a further 300Mhz due to be made available -- but only 192Mhz is currently being used, according to an analyst note from Citi Investment Research & Analysis," from an article on Cellular News.

from Blough Turner's blog.

It kind of destroys (yet again) the argument of AT&T for buying T-Mobile. These carriers have the spectrum, which they have either NOT DEPLOYED or, as AT&T was polite as to tell Congress, have mismanaged what they have deployed.

4 Random Thoughts from a Telecom Show

October 28, 2011

Here are 4 random thoughts from the STC (Society of Telecom Consultants) today.

The oil industry looks at green. When you are doing a comparison between Hosted PBX and Premise based PBX, remember that when you are moving hardware to cloud, so the premise saves on power, A/C, battery, and other stuff, which also means that on Cloud Communications means that the electric consumption is moved to a shared environment. It's a Green effort.

Just Like Fishing

October 28, 2011

I was reminded this morning while speaking to the STC that Marketing is just like fishing or hunting. You need to know what you will be trying to catch; what bait you will need; and where to hunt or fish.

Just like fishing, there are going to be some people just sitting in the boat catching nothing but a buzz and a sunburn because they are using the wrong bait (message) or there are no fish in that area.

Online marketing and social media really take that into account.

Smarter Ads

October 24, 2011

One thing about On-Demand Prime Time TV that drives me nuts is the way the ads are repeated and driven into your head like a nail via a hammer. OUCH! The ads aren't even good.

My email box since before ITEXPO has been filled with PR firms emailing me press releases.

Some Have Reached The Peak

October 21, 2011

I had a conversation yesterday with a friend from UHC. She mentioned that VISA is worried about its profitability on just the $0.24 federal max per debit card transaction. Here's the problem the American economy faces: We Peaked Already.  Period.

Globally, America is in a battle for good jobs, natural resources, oil, and soon clean water.
