Re: Red hot telecoms tech: QoS gets up close and personal

Darran Clements ·
Adam O'Hare commented A great article. I specially like the Amazon delivery analogy. The market will structure itself around customer propensity to pay. And there are a number of service providers that already have customers doing exactly that. We (GoS Networks) have some unique solutions to deliver this to the edge, but feedback shows that knowledge of what is actually happening (monitoring and measurement) is equally important to the Service Provider as generating revenue streams.

Teresa Cottam replied Thanks Adam – it’s hard to say everything you want to say about this without writing War and Peace. I guess my point is that I’d rather see us act when we see a problem occurring using existing competition law etc rather than constructing some huge piece of legislation against something that may (or may not) happen that will probably be biased, unwieldy and out of date before enacted. Such a law would almost certainly have unforeseen negative consequences (a bit like...

Re: The Olympic opportunity: will UK CSPs be able to maximise it?

Dominic Smith ·
Interesting to see this post from before the Olympics and the recommendation for a more positive outlook. I fully agree and wrote along similar lines in my review of the Olympics about what we can all learn and apply in our own industry today. A more optimistic and positive approach, would be a huge step forward.

Re: Change prepares the ground for revolution

Tal Givoly commented August 12th, 2010 at 15:53 | Teresa, Was interesting to read, but I really do not agree – with a lot of this . I don’t think these are things that were revolutionary (and you mention them as such): better batteries, more networks, more bandwidth, accessible tariffs, penetration of phones at affordable prices, and good-enough QoS. I think the iPhone is more important than most of them, if not all. While from a feature/function perspective, the iPhone (and now the iPhone...

Re: Change prepares the ground for revolution

Darran Clements ·
And Teresa Cottam in reply Thanks for the comment Tal – I think we’ll have to agree to disagree on this one. You see I think batteries are really important because if you don’t have the battery oomph then your fancy iPhone isn’t going to do very much for you. I also think QoS is important, because if your iPhone keeps dropping off the network or is really slow then your user experience is going to be pretty poor. And affordability is really important IMHO because what delivers real change...

Teresa Cottam in reply I would also like to point you to a really interesting piece by Sagee Ben Zedeff on telepresence: “Telepresence prepares the ground for the revolution” http://bit.ly/cQkt4H which refers to this blog. Sagee argues that telepresence is revolutionary after a slightly so-what start, because it is becoming embedded in the way we live and do business. I think that the downturn has really made us rethink eg business travel, which has undoubtedly been a boost to telepresence...

Re: Capacity crunch: it’s not what you think

Darran Clements ·
Robin Burton commented: I think that we are headed for a two or three track approach. “Bronze” users will get an “all you can eat” plan, but it will be subject to throttling if the bandwidth is needed by “Silver” or “Gold” users who are paying for consumption based on quantity. This will rapidly lead to serious users paying more for their usage (and probably being happy to do so if they get the quality). This should then fund the development of more capacity. If this does not happen, then...
