Hey all-

Welcome to my blog. The fine folks at the BeyeNETWORK™ have provided me with this forum to offer opinion and insight into the worlds of telcommunications (telecom) and business activity monitoring (BAM). But as with any blog, I am sure that we (yes we... since blogging is a "team sport"...) will explore other tangents that intersect the concepts of telecom and BAM.

In this world of "Crossfire" intellectual engagement (i.e. I yell louder therefore I win the argument), I will try to offer my opinion in a constructive manner. If I truly dislike a concept, I will do my best to offer an alternative as opposed to simply attempting to prove my point by disproving someone else's. I ask that people who post to this blog follow in my lead.

Let the games begin....

Product substitution is all around us.  Landline voice is being replaced by wireless voice offerings.  VoIP in the form of Skype is rapidly degrading the Long-Distance marketplace.  Telecom Service Providers have been challenging the dominance of Cablecos with video offerings via IPTV. Well the Cablecos are pushing back and gaining some success.

Recent articles highlight the fact that the Cableco marketing machine is not only interested in selling into the small and medium sized business (SMB) market, but the data and video infrastructure is capable of providing the bundled services that many of these organizations require.

The key aspect of these continued Cableco moves into areas where Telcos may have felt comfortable in is that a lot of these SMB businesses aren't "that" small to medium sized.  Cox is currently projecting significant revenues from healthcare related commercial customers.  And as anyone who has followed the recently healthcare debate knows, this is not an insignificant industry...
