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.

October 31, 2016

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

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.

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.
