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. I ran a pre-conference […]

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. Given the fragmentation of events it was nice to see an event bringing all the service platform issues under one roof. It ran in Munich, 10-11th June 2014, just after TADHack, it was an interesting contrast […]

Are Telecom APIs Dead?

Where are the Telecom API millionaires? We all know about the Apple App Store and Google Play millionaires. Flappy Bird being a recent in a long long line of developer successes. But in Telecom APIs, where are the AT&T Developer Program Millionaires? The question is fair, though its comparing apples and oranges. The successes in […]

Independent Review of Telecom APIs Workshop Summary

The SDP Global Summit proved again to be the must-attend event.  I’ve reviewed Summits from 2013, 2012, 2011 Day 1, 2011 Day 2, and 2011 Highlights on this weblog and you can see they have predicted the course of the industry.  This year we ran a post conference workshop on the 20th Sept entitled, “Independent […]

SDP Global Summit 2013: Its Business not Technology

Previous weblogs and The Services Domain Report have discussed that the term SDP (Service Delivery Platform) is not appropriate.  We’re talking about the Services Domain, see the diagram on the left.  A telco is composed of three ‘domains’ the network domain, business and operational support systems (BOSS) domain, and the services domain.  The services domain […]

Interview with Ivelin Innanov Co-Founder of Telestax

Ivelin and I have known each other for many years; he’s the classic technology entrepreneur with a brain that can hop between deep technology discussions to a business discussion without a moment of hesitation.  He founded Mobicents an Open Source VoIP Platform to help create, deploy, manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is […]

SDP Global Summit and Telecom API Workshop

I’m in particularly excited about the […]

IMS. What Choice Do You Have? IMS World Forum 2013 Summary.

In the effective duopoly of IMS core supply between Ericsson and Huawei, it’s fair to ask, “IMS.  What choice do you have?”  Talk to many people in Telecoms not directly working on IMS and they’ll simply right it off as dead.  For a dead technology, the conference was very much alive, the busiest I’ve ever […]
