I don’t agree with all the picks but here are the highlights of the Wireline Stars of 2013:
Lumos: "One of the biggest initiatives Drinkhall is driving this year is the telco's "edging out" network expansion strategy, one that includes the buildout of 100G optical wavelength routes connecting Richmond to Ashburn and Lynchburg in Virginia."
“Complementing the ongoing network buildouts are a growing set of new services, including colocation, Ethernet, fiber to the tower (FTT), and hosted VoIP services.” Notice that every company has had to add numerous services to keep revenue growing. What services have you added in the last year?
Even Sprint has reinvigorated its wireline shop with IAAS and Cloud services – none of it in-house! All of it through strategic partnerships. Note that.
For Google, it isn’t about a 1 GB Fiber-to-the-home network, it is WHAT can you do with that network! Tele-medicine is high on the list, especially considering that the population is getting older and older.
How are you utilizing wireline to crush it?
