WEBINAR: Cloud and Carrier Routing: Turning Complexity into Capability

Thursday March 7, 2013 Time: 2:00pm ET / 11:00am PT

The Cloud offers new potential to drive profitability, agility and efficiency in carrier interconnect routing and wholesale termination services. From servicing new business opportunities to creating new efficiencies, the Cloud is giving carriers more options and addressing increased complexity.

But not all Cloud solutions are the same, with different technical options, operations capabilities and business models. The key to success is to ask the right questions and get the most out of a Cloud service to maximize ROI.

In this presentation, DIGITALK CEO, Justin Norris, and CTO, Neil French, will address the key questions to ask when considering a Cloud solution for wholesale termination services and carrier interconnect routing. This will be based on DIGITALK's experience working with a growing number of service providers and network operators who have chosen to adopt a Cloud platform on which to base their carrier routing and wholesale services.

What attendees will learn:

  • Where are the opportunities to enhance wholesale voice termination services
  • What are the critical requirements of a Cloud carrier routing platform
  • How to assess the RoI of a Cloud-based wholesale voice platform
  • What are the hurdles in moving to the Cloud, and how to overcome them
  • What is the future for wholesale voice services in the Cloud

World's Smallest Space Telescopes to Hit Orbit Today

By Steve Anderson, Contributing TMCnet Writer

With all the developments going on out at Mobile World Congress (News - Alert) today, it's easy to forget that there are other places with other technology events happening. One of these involves two new tiny satellites that will be in orbit before the end of the day, specifically, the two smallest space telescopes ever, sent on a mission to study the brightest stars in the sky.

The Bright Target Explorer (BRITE) satellites, developed by Canada's University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies, were loaded into an Indian Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle at 7:20 this morning, Eastern time. They were then sent up from the Satish Dhawan Space Center located in Sriharikota, India. The BRITE satellites will be pointed outward toward bright stars that commonly adorn the night sky, like those found in the constellation Orion.

Once trained on their target, they can monitor stars to note changes in brightness over time, which can find things like spots on the stars themselves, any planets that may be in orbit around said stars, or what are known as "starquakes," caused by oscillations within the stars themselves...
