Mobile Eats World

October 31, 2016

Everyone says that mobile will win. A former executive at Synnervse believes that 5G will trump fiber. When your career is wireless, you think 5G is going to be awesome. When your career has been wireline, you don't think anything is better than fiber.

Broadsoft Goes Deep in White-Label

October 31, 2016

These acquisitions are coming faster than I can type!!! Sheesh! Broadsoft is buying VoIP Logic!

This is ironic because when BSFT bought Intellinote and made a bunch of announcements about spreading BroadCloud and BroadBusiness, I remarked they should just buy VoIP Logic.

The rumor on Friday turned out to be true: CenturyLink is buying Level3. CenturyLink has its roots in the RLEC business. It has acquired a number of smaller RLECs throughout the years including VZ and GTE assets. In 2002, it started making mistakes when it sold its cellular business to ALLTEL.

October 28, 2016

This was the big rumor yesterday that the Wall Street Journal started. There was speculation back in July about Level3 being up for sale. There even was the rumor that Comcast was going to buy L3.

Level3 has a bad quarter financially and the C-Suite says, "Don't look here!

Musings on Ma Bell

October 26, 2016

On my other blog, I linked to two WSJ graphics that show all of the consolidation in telecom. There is also a link to the fact that 6 companies own 90% of the media in the US. Consolidation under Obama has been unfettered.

I wonder back to when AT&T tried to buy T-Mobile in 2011.

4 Quotes from Gary Vee

October 26, 2016

Gary Vanderchuk is a social media /digital marketing expert and author of a couple of books. He puts out an incredible about of content on Facebook, twitter, instagram, snapchat, kik, podcasts and YouTube (where he came to fame on Wine Library).

Four things he has been saying really strikes me lately:

"Too many people are playing checkers when the game is chess." I think about all the me-too channel strategy going on that is NOT producing the results for the money and effort spent.

The InterWebs are Down!

October 21, 2016

The last couple of weeks have been very trying. Level3 had a VoIP network outage. The last two days have been DDOS attacks against DYN and others has left many sites unreachable (like Twitter, Reddit and others).

Krebs experienced an IOT botnet attack earlier this month.

Can You Lower the Price?

October 19, 2016

When a partner asks for a lower price what is he saying?

  1. He is selling a commodity.
  2. He is presenting a couple of quotes.
  3. He is not selling your stuff exclusively on this deal..

Granted in many cases, network IS a commodity. And so is Internet Access! And clients indeed DO buy on price.
