    2,935 views - Posted October 20, 2011 by Chun-ling Woon Chief Strategy Officer - Etiya

    This is the time of year when service providers start their planning exercises. Executives toil around conference tables and telephones debating budgets, technology, operations and revenue. Every part of the business is scrutinized – from the fellow that brings coffee and snacks to the CEO. Ev...

    How will our kids communicate tomorrow?

    2,356 views - Posted September 7, 2011 by André Panné Managing Director - TRADUM GmbH

    It is all because of my 17 year old son, who seems to be glued to his iPhone. Right - he is glued to the iPhone - not the other way round.  So I really started wondering how he is going to communicate in future. What does communication mean for him? What does he expect - what does he tak...

      In the five years that this industry has been discussing Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), we’ve made some real progress. Network operators are implementing common product catalogs with reusable components and order orchestration - and that’s good for the industry and good for ...

    Nipping 4G in the bud?

    4,142 views - Posted August 19, 2011 by Shayan Sanyal Chief Marketing Officer - Bluwan

      Let’s face it, I’m an early adopter. And to be honest, I’m the kind of guy who won’t bat an eye-lid when I receive a text message from my operator saying I’ve exceeded my daily mobile broadband roaming limit. If I lived in the US right now, I’d be av...

    Seriously - What Are We Waiting For?

    2,899 views - Posted August 16, 2011 by Chun-ling Woon Chief Strategy Officer - Etiya

    If I have to listen to one more argument about network neutrality or equal access, I’m going to start another binge-eating session at a local hawker food court. The arguments for making network operators compete to dig trenches, pull cables and build towers are so tired that they don’t e...

    7,676 views - Posted July 7, 2011 by Tony Poulos Market Strategist - TM Forum

    The rollout of national broadband networks for the early-adopter countries is uncovering some very interesting challenges. That least expected is the slow take-up of subscribers to the blindingly fast fiber networks. Is it because the technology is scary, the cost too high or consumers are happy ...

    Dutch net neutrality bomb

    7,542 views - Posted July 2, 2011 by Tony Poulos Market Strategist - TM Forum

    Mobile operators in The Netherlands must be wondering what hit them. The Dutch parliament, acting with speed and ferocity rarely seen, has introduced net neutrality legislation that will have far-reaching effects on the viability, future profitability and even survival, of companies such as KPN, ...

    ‘Riding Big Wednesday’ – the age of business analytics

    3,212 views - Posted June 29, 2011 by Matt Hooper Chief Marketing Officer - Martin Dawes Systems

    For those of you that have seen the movie ‘Big Wednesday’ you will know that it is an iconic 70’s coming of age movie centred on change and surfing large waves. Big Wednesday is the day when the biggest waves or sets come in.  For some time now there has been a growing swell a...

    Build the Subdivision, Not Just the Plumbing

    3,423 views - Posted June 17, 2011 by Chun-ling Woon Chief Strategy Officer - Etiya

    Network operators are facing a real business dilemma when it comes to monetizing their infrastructure assets. I believe that the key is to look beyond the assets and understand how to deliver a package of capabilities that network operators are uniquely suited to provide.  In the construction ...
