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....

The companies are likely to try to distinguish themselves with advanced mobile data and video services that take advantage of the stockpiles of content they are already adept at licensing. People familiar with the discussions said some cable companies are looking at options to develop their own mobile devices in partnerships with manufacturers.

Amol Sharma and Vishesh Kumar have an excellent article today relating to the potential business drivers and competitive advantages of cable companies getting into the wireless data business.

Do you think that this experience and potential competitive advantage in content management gives the cablecos an advantage over the telcos?

Post your answer to the blog below or send me an email.

As much as the folks at OLN... err... Versus would like us to believe, the Tour de France isn't a race as much as it chess match. The old USPS team and Lance Armstrong proved that it is more about strategy, team and positioning than it is about one person ( ... note - i love armstrong and postal team. however, it was strategy and the great 'blue booster rocket' that won lance some of those titles... not just himself... ).

A similar experience kicked off Thursday with the start of the 700 MHz spectrum auction. Andy Vuong's article shows exactly how many different companies just in Colorado are looking to expand with the FCC auction. In fact, the only thing that might be greater than the number of participants is the number of business plans that might find a foothold with this new wireless spectrum.

Rather than this being one of those "fun" Sotheby's auctions, the FCC auction will take its own time and pace. In this it's much like the Tour de France. The process will take weeks to complete and even longer to see the fallout... It won't be about who has the most $$ ( ie Google ), but who has the best long-term vision plan ( ie who owns the current spectrum... ) and action plan associated with that vision.

NOTE - Armstrong did an amazing job in his early Tours until USPS became the "Postal Team". So, there is something to be said about having the most $$ in the FCC auctions.
