The Threat to Telcos' Future: Malcolm Orr Just Nailed It

If you don't do anything else today, watch this short video interview with Malcolm Orr, senior platform architect at Colt Technology Services Group Ltd .

His key point? If the traditional communications networking industry -- telcos and their vendors -- don't get their **** together and make wide area networks more dynamic and consumable (in part by adopting open source R&D methodologies), the web-scale giants such as Google, Amazon and Facebook will lose patience and do it themselves.

If that happens, it's game over.

Something to think about… and do something about, more to the point.

Re: Echoes of Vodafone here I am also sceptical about it. I dont see Google and other disruptors spending CAPEX building the needed infrastructure.

(I am also on using Chrome on Windows and never had an issue)

Re: Echoes of Vodafone here I'm not so sure I woiuld think "Google, Amazon and Facebook will lose patience and do it themselves." Things would get a bit messy if that were to be the future.  

(I haven't seen any problems with video using Chrome at anytime.)

Re: Echoes of Vodafone here I know I am marginal  (currently Chrome 46 on Ubuntu 15.04) but your site consistently fails whereas I have close to 0 fail on any other.

Re: Echoes of Vodafone here Sorry to hear you have problems viewing our videos.

May I ask which browser or device OS yo are using? This is maybe something for our tech team to check out.

re YouTube - not really, for multiple reasons. I don't think we are alone.

Re: Echoes of Vodafone here Almost everytime I try to look at a video on your site there is a problem.  Can't you guys just use Youtube like everybody else ?
