Re: Extinct
nasimson, I'll buy that.  I agree with you and Dan - I do not think they will become "extinct", but maybe face the threat of becoming more irrelevant (just a commodity) with less revenue - if they do not remain competitive.

Re: Extinct
@DHagar: In counterpoint though, even in advanced mobile markets like Nordics, the Telcos have not disappeared although they are under pressure in terms of business model.

Re: Extinct
@DanJones: Your 30 dollars collected over a few years give me surety that the TIME is soon. It won't be long. Now Telcos are being attacked from a lot of industries.

Re: Extinct
Nasimson, I am with you.  They may have the networks, but if they do not stay relevent in the their service models and service packages, they can become dinosaurs - insulated from reality.

Re: Extinct
In counterpoint though, if I had a dollar for everytime someone told me that a new technology would make carriers extinct (WiFi etc.) I'd have, oh, at least 30 dollars. Hasn't happened yet, although it's always possible I suppose. Owning spectrum and a massively expensive yet hard to deploy network seems like a good bulwark against extinction though.

Extinct
> Today's lesson: It takes a long time for a massive carrier to fundamentally change the way it does anything, especially voice calls, on its network I hope some Telco CxOs are reading this. Telco dinosaurs can go extinct very soon due to disruptive models of the OTT providers like what's app and mobile OS providers like Android and IOS.

Re: IMS at the Heart of AT&T's Internet of Things
If you are talking with someone on the phone on the way to your car, you can get inside it and direct the call as a bluetooth call, hands free with the hep of twinning. Not only that, this call will be network enabled which means that the call will take place even when it is going through tunnels.

Re: IMS at the Heart of AT&T's Internet of Things
Dan, that twinning does sound impressive. 

It is true that the technology can exist for a long time and it is often the applications that cause it to take off. 

Great info - you and Light Reading are keeping us on the cutting edge.
