Even the tradition telco manufacturing companies are not going towards UC, it comes late but at least a sign for changing the way how business will communicate in future.

Open Internet (Net Neutrality)

Today i have seen the following on Light Reading and would like to provide some comments on net neutrality.

How we see the internet today is only due to the openness and freedom of it. It is very simple and easy to say that some provider needs a way to control traffic but at the end it is difficult to control what a service provider or authority is doing with DPI. We can see this in China, Saudi Arabia and other authoritative Govt. After Sep. 11 the same is going on in USA and EU on the name of police in the internet to catch bad guys.
Today's Internet is not only a tool to connect people, it is also a part of media of expression like newspaper or TV. Internet provides a platform for general public to give their point of view on different issues within a country or at the international level. It differ from legacy media outlets as there is no editorial process involved.
I know if we like or not there will be a control on Internet in future. We can just hope that Freedom of speech/expression will not completely disappear.

Unified Communication and Internet

I had seen an article and looked on some offers about Unified communication. It is very interesting to see how the business community is legging behind new technologies. There was a time the technology moves from business arena to customer arena and now a day it is in the opposite direction. Most of the applications are currently used in the public community first and than it moves to Business. Some of the examples are Instant Messaging, Video, collaboration tools and P2P applications.
The same trend you can see in the telecommunication sector. One of the example is video. Before the .com bubble most of the telecoms sector was convinced that video is not profitable business and especially video on IP has no future. Now we have seen after popularity of Internet based Video web sites every telecoms company have in one or other way a video story.
I think internet community had an innovation platform for last 10 years and it will be for new technologies for the years come.
