A Shift from CLEC

January 27, 2016

The CLECs have always been channel friendly. It was a mutual love fest because they both needed each other and were being pushed around by the ILECs. Today, the CLECs look ill. All of them are a rag tag collection of acquisitions and mangled integrations.

Sprint wireline business annual "Revenues were $581M, dropping another $18M sequentially" over the total annual revenue of $8.1 Billion.

Telecom Disruption

January 24, 2016

You read about disruption in other industries with household names like Dropbox, Uber, AirBnb and Netflix. Telecom is being picked apart the same way Craigslist started the revenue decline for newspapers.

No one makes voice calls any more. It is all text and chat.

The Storming of Canada

January 22, 2016

Last week, Zayo bought Allstream from MTS. Allstream was a Canadian B2B telecom with a lot of fiber.

Shaw Communications in 2014 bought data center company, ViaWest. There has been a few large transaction across the northern border in the last two years.

Birch is making a move into Canada too.

Broadsoft's UCaaS Predictions

January 21, 2016

Broadsoft did a global survey of UCaaS penetration.

"The survey of 129 global service provider and industry leader respondents revealed cloud UC market penetration could grow 3x in the large enterprise segment, 7x in the mid-market segment and almost 5x in the small business segment by 2020."

Globally they surveyed 129 providers, which is less than half of just its base of US customers, about a third of its global clientele and about 5% of Hosted VoIP providers in North America. A small sample.

Competing in SaaS or VoIP

January 19, 2016

In this growth hack article, there a number of good points about SaaS companies that can be extended to the VoIP space as well. (Voice is just an app today, right?)

"SaaS is getting increasingly competitive." You think? Look at all of these marketing apps.

How Do You Choose a Marketing Firm?

January 18, 2016

I find it interesting that most service providers treat marketing as separate from the business as a shed in the backyard is separate from the house. Service providers would not hire someone off fiverr or elance to configure routers or phones, but would use any platform like that to hire people to manage their brand or marketing.

At the very least, when hiring a marketing firm, check their track record. Do they have any home runs?

Uh Oh, Microsoft is Closing the Gaps

January 15, 2016

Some folks think I am picking on the VoIP space (see this post). Maybe I am. Hosted PBX started for me in 2003 when Broadsoft's second customer rolled out its platform and signed me up as their first agent. It has been a struggle ever since.

Is There Anything Impressive About VoIP?

January 11, 2016

I am getting peppered with email invites to lunch-and-learns, webinars and other events to learn about "impressive" companies. Is there anything impressive about VoIP? Is anyone doing anything really unique? I am having a hard time thinking so.

Data Center M&A to Start off 2016

January 11, 2016

Verizon put its Terremark division up for auction. Windstream sold its data centers to TierPoint. Rumor has it that CenturyLink and AT&T are looking at selling their data centers.

The market for data centers is at a high - and the telcos need cash, so a sale makes sense.
