Before AIM (AOL Instant Messenger, 1997) and ICQ (Internet Chat Query, 1996), there was the command line function ‘chat’ on unix (early 1980s) which evolved into IRC (Internet Relay Chat,1988); and for the VMS (Virtual Memory System) crowd there was phone (sometime in […]

Telecom APIs Event 2014: Go To Market is Critical

Even though we’ve had three Telecom API events this year: June in Munich, this one in Oct in London, and the Service Delivery Innovation Summit in London in Sept (previously known as the SDP Global Summit) the event ended up being busier than expected with a relatively high % of telcos.

NGSP Review: The “Art of the possible” and the “Mantra of self-defeat”

The Next Generation Service Platforms (NGSP) event brings together 3 events: Telecom APIs, Web Real-Time Communications & Legacy Networks Evolution.

Before getting into the main message of this weblog, remember to beware “black and white thinking”.  It’s about focus, not absolutes.  This weblog came about as I realized this subtle but important distinction between mobile and telecom app developers is not broadly appreciated, it gets lost in the collective noun of developers. Most developers that […]

Telecom Application Developer Summit

Most of my working life has been spent building telecom applications within telcos (BT), vendors (Lucent, Cambridge Technology Partners), in my start-up Teltier (mobile presence applications), and working with many tens of telecom application developers as an independent. Based on this experience, telecom application developers exist and are grossly under-served by the telecom industry.  A […]
