I’m an IoT addict.  There, I said it.  That’s the first step of recovery, right?   Thanks to a generous son, Christmas started a new obsession – controlling and connecting our home.

by Alan Percy

Feb 15, 2017 9:33:16 AM

If you keep up to date with the latest innovations in communications technology, ITEXPO has always been one of the places to learn, meet key vendors, and network.  With a regular winter event in southern Florida every year, it’s hard to say “no” to attending.  This year did not disappoint, especially with the addition of a co-located Internet of Things (IoT) event and even more to see and experience during your trip to Florida.  A few key observations:

What to Expect at MWC 2017

by Jim Machi

Feb 14, 2017 11:35:27 AM

Mobile World Congress is coming up soon and it’s always fun to speculate on industry marketing trends one might expect to see.  First of all, with a generally poor 2016 for telecom infrastructure vendors, which comprise the bulk of the companies with MWC booths, we’ll probably see an overall muting of far out expensive “come look here” marketing and parties.

Over the summer, I wrote about how Internet of Things will sometimes need to merge with Real Time Communications.  Dialogic even created an infographic on this concept.  Let me explain more since I’ve had a few questions come in since then.

Contact Centers – Where is it now, and what’s next?

by Jim Machi

Dec 27, 2016 9:36:12 AM

With IVRs, many of us understand that when we make a call, we may not even actually talk to a person. We may be talking to a computer.  And we totally accept it.  The computer voice will be the onramp to some database and find us the answer.  And if we really, really need to talk to an actual living person, we can do so.

Airlines Fly Over Contact Center Expectations

by Jim Machi

Dec 20, 2016 9:34:20 AM

Last week, I talked about the different contact center channels. I mentioned that airline contact centers do a good job of keeping up with customers’ demands and expectations of communication.

Oct 26, 2016 2:00:00 AM

The IPX concept has been around for a while, but at the Carriers World/IPX conference held recently in London, there was still talk about the slow the rate of adoption for IPX services and what should be done to address the problem. One way to think about the IPX is that it provides premium inter-carrier service offerings.

Every year, Ericsson puts out a nice overall Mobility Report in June.  I’m finally getting around to reading it now.  There is some really nice information in there about IoT growth and 5G.

However, this one graphic really struck me.
