The Telephone Network As Profit

Rotary TelephoneIn an interesting piece on Ars Technica discusses how the traditional telephone network is becoming obsolete and how we should get ready for the “All-IP Telco”. This type of change is part of bringing the old phone systems into new infrastructure. Jon Brodkin goes on to interview Daniel Berninger:

“We have 100 years of traditional telecom playing out, colliding with 50 or 60 years of information technology, and the thing that comes out of that collision is an all-IP telco,” Berninger said. “In five years we’ll know what that looks like. At this point we can just guess. But it’s going to be a very big deal.”

First Look: Dell Voice

Dell-Voice-LogoIn Canada, we’re eagerly awaiting the arrival of Google Voice. While, to some, this wait has become unbearable – some have found ways to use Google Voice outside of the United States, others must wait. In Canada specifically, the wealth of VoIP (commonly called Voice-Over-IP) options on your smartphone are really starting to pile up. Enter Dell Voice, the VoIP service that aims to fill the gap that the lack of Google Voice has left in this country. Join me as I take a look at this new service.

There are no more results.
