2014 Telecom Expo Reveals Smart Trends But Highly Biased Council

This week, I attended the 2014 Integra Telecom Tech Expo. Keynote was Mitel Vice President of Sales Engineering, Joshua Haslett talking about the new role of CIOs as the "front-edge source of product innovation and customer engagement for businesses." Speakers from Metaswitch, Polycom, ADTRAN and Ciena addressed topics, including networking for the hybrid cloud, network virtualization as it relates to Wi-Fi deployment, and security with hosted exchange. Happy to go into detail about any of these topics. If you're interested give me a call or leave a comment. But here's what you really need to know about the latest trends in business telecom:

Information that comes from telecom carrier representatives is highly biased.

At the expo, if you listened to the cloud services representatives you might think the whole world is moving to the cloud and that you're crazy not to move to the cloud yourself.

Fanatical Employees Don't Have to Slow Down Your Business Internet Connection

TechFlash this week reports that March Madness can negatively impact your bottom line because “streaming basketball games will also affect everyone else's Internet speeds at work” and “could cost employers more than $190 million in lost productivity time.”

But it doesn't have to.

In fact, here, IT managers can make a slam-dunk.

Assuming employees get their jobs done, many business managers seem happy for workers to participate in events like March Madness. They're good for morale.

IT managers can negate the cost of this perk by adding a low balancing router with 2 WAN ports and a cheap Internet connection, like cable or broadband DSL.

Doing this eliminates slow speeds during high demand periods. Plus, it adds redundancy to your business network. So, when demands return to normal (you know, when it isn't March Madness, the US Open or the Super Bowl), your business network is more secure.

Price erosion has made this option affordable, especially if you consider, as TechFlash does, the high cost of doing nothing at all.

We can help boost your high bandwidth today. Call (206) 420-0140.
