Editorial: AT&T officially announced HD voice support via VoLTE

Tweet

I’m currently working through a couple of pieces for publication over at TMCnet on the official (press release, not rumored, not CTO-dropping buzzwords and vague dates) AT&T announcement for HD voice support in limited markets.

Consumers Digest is working on an HD voice piece.  I feel sorry for the reporter, because he asked about [...]

Editorial–Apologies for the silence

Tweet

I’ve been up to my neck in dealing with the fallout from CES – just because I couldn’t get a flight into town didn’t stop an onslaught of mail and follow-up calls.

In addition, I’ve been working with TMCnet to get the SmartVoice conference spun up next week at IT EXPO East in [...]

Editorial: From HD voice to Smart Calling

Tweet

Since this venture fired up back in 2009, the world has (slowly, painfully) started to move away from narrowband and into better voice quality.

It will take (painfully, still) longer before the mobile world has adopted HD voice as its de facto standard, with delays to Voice over LTE (VoLTE) continuing to pop [...]

Editorial–A little mobile HD voice misleading in South Africa

Tweet

There’s been angst in the South African trade press regarding the lack of mobile HD voice service.   So I’m annoyed about playing semantics for  cheap PR.

“Contrary to popular belief – HD voice services are here (and sounding great)” issued by DUO Marketing + Communications for  client Vox Telecom makes this biiiiig stretch that [...]

Editorial: The problem with CES…

Tweet

I will be spending the next few days playing catchup from CES.  The problem with such a large go=go-go show is being caught out of contact with other news sources and not having enough time or energy at the end of the day to go see what everyone else has been doing.

(P.S. I’d [...]

Editorial: CES and the difference 8 hours makes

Tweet

Las Vegas, Nevada, Gate D50 laptop charging stations – Earlier today, I was making the show floor rounds at CES 2013 (OK, International CES 2013, but really CEA, you’re on my bad list just below the T-Mobile PR people at this point).  At 3 to 4 meetings, I said that there was a “25 [...]

2013–The HD Voice Happy New Year (maybe)

Tweet

If the stats from this web site don’t lie, HD Voice should be on the upswing. 

The year 2012 saw nearly 7,945 returning visitors – up from 5,325 in 2011 and 4,814 in 2010; a conversion to percentage growth is left to the math heads reading this note.

Looking back upon the [...]

Tweet

Everything old is new again. Voice will will come back into vogue over the the next two years, based upon three distinct trends:  Quality improvements, blended with newer services/apps and worked over as its own unique data type.

There’s a bigger (and in need of a little editing tweak) piece over at TMC [...]
