Telcordia Still Sulking

1:30 PM -- EuroBlog is in Really Quite Nice, France, for the OSS-fest that is TeleManagement World, where we'll be meeting a number of the major telecom software players and getting the latest updates from what is, arguably, one of the most important NGN technology sectors out there today. (See OSS Sizzles on French Riviera and Turning Point for OSS.)

There are signs that many things are changing in OSS-land, not least the greater influence of IT industry ways of thinking, something the telecom sector hasn't been so great at over the years.

But some things never change. Take Telcordia Technologies Inc. , for example. A full three-plus years after deciding it didn't like the way we write about it, Telcordia still hasn't rescinded its decision to stop talking to us (effectively, a media ban), and graciously declined our attempt to secure a meeting here in Nice.

That hasn't stopped us writing about the company, but it's kinda sad to see that while the OSS sector appears to have moved on in the past few years, Telcordia, it seems, has not. (See Telcordia Lands RBOC Extensions, Telcordia Up for Grabs Again?, HQ Sale Funds Telcordia Deal, Telcordia Leaves Legal Luggage, and Telcordia CEO $trikes $ell-Off Deal.)

re: Telcordia Still Sulking Maybe the "c" was changed to an "l", but we get the message.

re: Telcordia Still Sulking Seems like the Company has dropped the ball again and again. Does the new agreement SAP do anything for business? or is this just smoke?

Hey Ray, I'm not speaking to LR either. Think I can get a headline out of it?

Frankly, I think it's a great way to get PR. And as they say, there's no such thing as bad publicity.

PS. You definitely win extra points for "OSS-fest".

re: Telcordia Still Sulking It might just be that they've got nothing interesting to say, so I guess we can't blame them for that.

re: Telcordia Still Sulking I suspect Telcordia *does* have something interesting to say -- they just aren't prepared to say it to us.
Ho hum...

re: Telcordia Still Sulking I've tried talking to mgmt and all I get is rhetoric. Is there any source for good info on Telcordia? BTW- I am not affiliated with them, just concerned about their future (or lack thereof).
