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.

And Start the New Year Now (Tidbits # 2427)

January 4, 2016

ITEXPO is in Ft Lauderdale in 20 days. Will you be there?

Our ITEXPO panel on Open Source for Service Providers will be using Dialogic's study, which is examined in this blog post by Jim Machi of Dialogic.

Some good reads to start off the new year.

Sliding into 2016

December 22, 2015

As we slide into 2016, the web is full of predictions. (Bill Miller's UC predictions are here.)

2015 consisted of M&A, musical chairs and hacks. Next year, more of the same.

Telecom Tidbits for Thursday (Part 2922)

October 22, 2015

Zoom (the modem manufacturer) is just one of a number of companies and organizations opposing the Charter-TWC-BH deal.

News Tidbits Part 2920

October 15, 2015

Lessons from the AshleyMadison.com Hack

August 19, 2015

In case you live in a cage, a month ago a hacker group broke into Avid Life Media systems and commandeered all of their data. That's right - ALL.

ALM owns a couple of dating sites, most notably AshleyMadison.com which has the tag line: Life is short; have an affair. The hackers were mad that ALM is basically scamming its users.

What Do the Security Hacks Mean for the Channel?

June 30, 2015

It seems every day this month there was either an announcement about a security hack or another note about the NSA spying. Although most people think "It won't happen to me", with the constant news, even the most ignorant, I mean, confident person would have to start to worry. Factor in that many breaches aren't detected for months.

So do you start selling managed security based on FUD?

One Way to Privately Differentiate

June 29, 2015

The FCC recently ruled that phone companies CAN block robocalls - all types - if a customer requests it.

Did you know that there was an FTC Robocall Challenge in 2013. (Thanks to M. Leblanc for filling me in.) Nomorobo came out fo that challenge.

4 Acquisitions Noted (+2)

May 7, 2015

I missed the announcement that BAE was acquiring SilverSky. SilverSky was a combination of Perimeter Internetworking and Silver Sky that was a major cyber security and network security firm used by a number of large service providers. BAE is a large, global defense contractor.

"Metalogix, the premier provider of management software to move, manage and secure content for Office 365, SharePoint, OneDrive for Business, Exchange, Box, Dropbox, Amazon, Google and other leading enterprise content management (ECM) systems, announced today that it has acquired MetaVis Technologies. MetaVis is widely known for its innovative and unified cloud collaboration service management platform." [I would have just said Microsoft Partner, but I guess that doesn't cover it.
