I beg to differ. It all depends on your value system... Even online porn (that drives the net) has value - it facilitates world peace - people who can see each other naked are more interested in orgies than suicide attacks :)

If that is your goal, find a way to deliver phone service to the other 4 billions people in the world that has absolutely no phone service of any kind. Who cares about people that are trying to choose between POTs, Cellular and VoIP??

re: Pradeep Sindhu, Juniper Networks
Hi technoboy,
Just because someone is poor, it does not mean they do not need/want phone service. It is a failure of our industry that is incapable/unwillingness of using Moore's law to provide cheaper means of expanded telecommunication service to the rest of the world. With 80% of the world population without phone service, how can the telecom market be saturated?? But, then again, the world is changing. NAR is only 40% of the world telecom equipment market and it is on the decreasing trend.. If you are not designing your equipment for India, China, and Latin America market now and Africa in the future, you will face a very bleak future.

So, I really care less about all this discussion about VoIP as related to US market.. The VoIP question will be decided by China and India over the next few years regardless of what happened in USA..

re: Pradeep Sindhu, Juniper Networks
I have been to China recently and worked with Chunghwa Telecom (CT - China Telecom). VOIP is huge over there... don't know about India but I assume it is the same. The cost of VOIP vs. building Class 5 infrastructure is huge and the quality and reliability can be made close to Class 5 with the latest gear and proper design. That said, some of the quality of the VOIP can be shaky because they cut corners and the people don't care yet.

re: Pradeep Sindhu, Juniper Networks
I believe cellular (and wireless of all kinds) is taking over China and wireline networks are just a backbone, or soon to be one. In EU and elsewhere the same is true. It is interesting to see if long haul wireless (2-20 miles) can form a mesh backbone and provide reasonable reliability. In any case the wireline portion of telecom seems to be shrinking rapidly unless a new business model emerges.

Care to post a bit of rationale behind your claim?

re: Pradeep Sindhu, Juniper Networks
Hi Tony,
If you look carefully at the discusssion and design goal of current WiMax equipment, it is focused on developed country. So, it is designed to the wrong market. At developing countries, cost is the main concern. Speed is nice to have. Current WiMax equipment is designed towards having high speed as opposed to cost optimized.

If you going in the wrong direction, you will ends up in the wrong places regardless of how fast you are moving..

-----------

Perhaps the best way to do that is exactly to develop WiMax infrastructure. It is far easier to deploy a wireless solution in a developing country with no infrastructure than it is to lay cable. Certainly cell phones have caught on in such situations because one can deploy cells much more quickly than tons of copper.
