    The Age of Femtocells, or how Consumers Should get Revenue Sharing for In-house Roaming

    8,696 views - Posted April 15, 2011 by Shayan Sanyal Chief Marketing Officer - Bluwan

    Let me preface this post by saying that my wife and I 'cut the cord' a few years ago. We haven’t had a POTS (plain old telephony service) line since 2005, around the time we moved to the Silicon Valley. Instead, I was very happy using a pretty fast cable broadband connection (Comcas...

    The advent of new generation BSS

    2,863 views - Posted March 28, 2011 by Matt Hooper Chief Marketing Officer - Martin Dawes Systems

    Currently, CSPs face a problem as they are constrained by high numbers of legacy systems in their back office. This leads to high volumes of product, service and functional silos, meaning that there is no ‘single view’ of customers or services (a concept talked about in the industry for ...

    My Nokia N8 joins the Infowars - so should my network operator

    15,080 views - Posted March 21, 2011 by Douglas Zone Special Projects - Cable & Wireless

    So I am here in Madrid, in a hotel room, typing away on my Nokia N8… saying to myself: “why did I wait so long to get a smart phone…” But now I understand that maybe I didn’t make the best choice - the phone is amazing, the OS is not. Symbian’s UI and touch s...

    Back Away from the Banquet – Monetizing Mobile Data

    3,368 views - Posted March 8, 2011 by Chun-ling Woon Chief Strategy Officer - Etiya

    I was once told that the best exercise for losing weight was pushing yourself away from the table and it’s time for mobile network operators to do the same. Many feel that they risk customers by eliminating all-you-can-eat data plans, but the truth is that most customers just want a data plan ...

    Facebook frightens me

    3,596 views - Posted March 4, 2011 by Tony Poulos Market Strategist - TM Forum

    Facebook is hot, but I'm going cold on it. Maybe it’s an age thing, but the buzz has waned to the point of disinterest. News that almost half the UK population now uses Facebook, 30 million, is mind-boggling. What is even more daunting is that more than half of them use Facebook da...

    Transitioning past, present and future - playing customer exper

    3,874 views - Posted January 21, 2011 by Matt Hooper Chief Marketing Officer - Martin Dawes Systems

    Transformation takes years, so CSPs need to find ways in which they can migrate customers in a staged approach to complement the introduction of new services as they emerge across both legacy and next gen systems. Done at the appropriate time, this means they will be able to manage customer, partner...

    CES 2011 Wrap-up

    5,056 views - Posted January 21, 2011 by Tal Givoly Co-Founder & CEO - Medivizor

    Over 140,000 people attended CES 2011 It’s quite a challenge to add to the plethora of CES 2011 blogs. This post puts together some of my key observations. I didn’t touch on everything I saw and might have even missed key insights, so it’s not “the definitive”...

    Rome yesterday, Paris today.  Planes, trains and automobiles…  I only have myself to blame and the TMF to thank!  Anyway, I hope you can bear with me – here is my New Years “Rant and Pontificate”. (C) jscreationzsI began thinking about the differe...

    More 'tooting of the horn' or the ongoing creation of false hopes

    3,745 views - Posted January 14, 2011 by Shayan Sanyal Chief Marketing Officer - Bluwan

    With overcoming the digital divide a priority for Britain, there is much tooting of the horn when ‘solutions’ are announced that will seemingly provide ubiquitous broadband. The most recent of these was around satellite internet broadband, with Avanti and its Hylas-1 Satellite an...

    Everything 2.0, is it the new .COM?

    16,601 views - Posted December 16, 2010 by Cato Rasmussen CEO - BolgiaTen

      Reading Telco 2.0 blogs (for which I am potentially a great believer), vendors’ White Papers and editorials 2.0 seems to be the answer. But, I am getting confused as to what are the questions. 2.0 whatever is being put in front of it i.e. Telco 2.0, WEB 2.0… seems ...

    Photo courtesy of HacksHaven (creative commons) Over the last two weeks, we have seen a lot of news coverage and resulting public discussion and debate on the use of satellite technology to provide ubiquitous broadband, especially in areas where fibre is difficult to deploy, as it is eithe...

    Free trade, globalization and flying pigs

    3,502 views - Posted November 26, 2010 by Tony Poulos Market Strategist - TM Forum

    I am not a great fan of over-regulation. After many years of deregulation in almost every national telecommunications market of the world it seems that governments believe we still need to be told what to do, constantly, almost like naughty school children. Regulation is one thing, but when gover...
