The Great API Con

Happy New Year! I thought I’d kick the year off with the Great API Con, as its resulting in systematic failures of innovation projects that should be seeing far more business success. This article is for API providers not consumers. “Wait! What? Aren’t you an early proponent of APIs? Recommending copying the lead of Web […]

The Enterprise Telecoms Revolution. A Potted History of Programmable Telecoms.

Before we start, do not worry about all the acronyms in this potted history of Programmable Telecoms, there is an irreverent acronym list at the end of this weblog to help you through them. And yes, this is a long weblog, at 4k words it should take about 20 minutes to read, but its easy […]

SDIS: An Uplifting Event, but the Institutions remain Detached from Reality

At the end of this weblog is an update with a review of some of the slides presented. The SDP Global Summit, renamed Service Delivery Innovation Summit (#SDIS), reached its 10th year. The name change was to reflect the broader scope of service innovation beyond the nebulous and to some extent discredited term SDP, so […]

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.

MWC2013: The Mobile Dichotomy, Net-Head versus Cust-Head

The overall feel of MWC (Mobile World Congress) this year is upbeat.  More people attending, up from 67k to 72k.  The money being spent on LTE (Long Term Evolution) is starting to percolate through the industry, and later this year LTE-A (Advanced) as Telstra and several other operators announced.  In these articles from 2008 and […]

A Brief History of Telco APIs and the Long Tail

Previous weblog articles have discussed the importance of Telco APIs across the whole tail, not just the long tail.  I find myself repeating the following too often for my liking, “Do not focus on the API, that’s just a piece of technology, an enabler, the key is understanding the value contained within a telco and […]

What’s the Difference between Aepona, Apigee, Twilio, and Voxeo?

I’m often asked what’s the difference between Aepona, Apigee, Twilio, Voxeo?  The diagram below is my attempt to provide a framework to understand the similarities and differences between the 4 suppliers.  This can only present a current snapshot and my view, other frameworks are possible, and of course all 4 suppliers have a future vision […]

Looking Back and Looking Forward

This article reviews some upcoming themes and the passed year’s themes. Looking Forward: MWC 2010 and some themes for the coming decade What will probably be the main themes of MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2010? Unfortunately, LTE (Long Term Evolution) will be a key focus of the show.  I’ve discussed previously why most operators do […]
