First of all, Chinese companies are dominating here. Huawei and ZTE and others l have never heard of are all over.

I think this is good for Chinese economy, but make it difficult for other startup countries to crack the manufacturing industry!

Wifi networking

This is from ISP  point of to try and give a customer a good experience and reduce chun. Wifi ISPs like Zol or PowerTel needs to equip their engineers with the right tools for troubleshooting  customer wifi to reduce frustration.

- adding more wireless APs is not a solution as it increase noise hence no clear channels to communicate.

- a survey can be done to see where the client needs his her wifi device installed, through proper testing, the engineer can then determine if this is the best place for better wifi experience.

- also the engineer can make sure where the wifi router is going to be installed there is no signal interference like microwave or high voltage power transformers.

Monopoly is bad, especially if its government driven.

One of the issue which caught my attention is the issue of monopoly. When there is monopoly, its bad, especially if its government owned and its poorly managed. Government cannot be a regulator and business competitor at the same time.

What tends to happen is that reports and research are commissioned and results tend to be heavily massaged in favour of government. This is bad for business, it means if a monopoly is big as say TelOne, no money is released to invest in new technology yet year after year results will show that it is doing well.

This hender development!

Final Closing Day.

I couldnt attend all the juicy forums but it made me realise a lot of things which is not right about our telecoms sector.

To start with, the telecoms sector needs a proactive, non political driven regulator who whips everyone into line.
We also need visionary leadership from the regulator to see beyond hard times and steer the boat towars safer waters.
Deep pockets in telecoms are good if used for development not to buy favour and hinder laws which doesnt favour your game plan.
There is a lot of technoloy out there which can be used by our regulator to monitor ISPs.

One thing which l couldnt get my head around is the connected home. Huawei and ZTE are the biggest pushers in this area and l saw some fancy gadgets, eg, fingerprint door locks, but can we really have any use of it in our current economical environment?
