Enterprise Connect, TADHack, Programmable Telecoms

In a couple of weeks we have TADHack-mini Orlando, just before Enterprise Connect. We’ve run hackathons before other events, such as TADHack-mini Japan before the big WebRTC Conference in Japan, and for several years ran TADHack-mini London before the WebRTC Global Summit. Its a great way to demonstrate what programmable telecoms means in practice. This […]

Understanding TADHack

TADHack has been running for less than two years, and in that time we’ve had over 200 amazing hacks created at the events, tens of which have gone or are in the process of going commercial. At the end of this weblog we list them out so you can see all the impressive concepts created […]

TADSummit 2015, 17-18 November Lisbon

TADS is a grass roots initiative that is only 2 years old. However, TADHack is now the largest telecom focused hackathon in the world, and doubled in size from last year with 1400 registrations, see the 2015 TADHack global event summary. And TADSummit has become the place to meet the leaders focused on making business success in new services […]

The need for an industry reset on services

Its 2015, in case you didn’t notice 😉  IMS is still not pervasive, tier 2 telcos continue to buy NEW soft-switches in preference to IMS as its too expensive / complex, and RCS is nowhere as discussed in this weblog – a big thank you to all the contributors in the comments.  VoLTE is making slow, painful […]

LTE Asia 2014 Summary

LTEAsia remains one of the best, if not the best event, to meet with most of the region’s CxOs.  Its not too big, and not too small. Numbers appeared slightly down on 2 years ago when I last attended, but the quality of attendees remains as high. I was chairing the Signaling Focus day, the […]

WebRTC Global Summit Review

Let me kick off with an obvious statement but it needs repeating: WebRTC is about communications not just telephony.  Which has an important corollary: telephony is not dead, its just becoming a bit-part in the emerging web-centric communications landscape. The first ever WebRTC Global Summit ran from March 31st – April 2nd in London. Congratulations […]

MWC 2014: The Art of Misdirection

It was the first time in 15 years I did not make the annual pilgrimage to MWC (Mobile World Congress).  Some of the reasons being: The BS and detachment from market reality of the GSMA which impacts MWC; The ridiculously large event which means I’m spending more time racing between meetings than in meetings; The […]
