DT CEO bullish on IoT-driven renaissance

first_img Related Author Tags Deutsche Telekom CEO Timotheus Hoettges tipped the wireless industry to grow through the revenue share opportunities offered by IoT in the era of 5G, rather than focusing on charging for connectivity.In an interview with Bloomberg, Hoettges (pictured) said his company – and the industry as a whole – could derive extensive benefits from taking direct revenue on the services built on mobile and fixed infrastructure.“Our ecosystem is changing into a model where we participate in the revenue of the solution space,” he added: “The connectivity is just a small fraction of it.”The company already started deploying this model in installations such as a smart parking scheme in Hamburg. Here, Deutsche Telekom does not charge the city for supplying the infrastructure, but takes a cut of the parking fee. The system uses its narrowband IoT network and software platform provided by its business services division T-Systems.Hoettges added success in the telecoms “renaissance” would be built around these types of revenue share models.The interview was part of the news channel’s coverage of the DLD Conference in Munich, where the executive outlined new business cases and the company’s ongoing convergence strategy across its footprint.Discussing its strategy in Europe, Hoettges reiterated the company’s commitment to providing converged services, stating it can now offer both mobile and fixed connectivity across its footprint on the continent. This is through its own infrastructure investments, recently acquired assets or deals with existing local fixed providers.The executive described it as the “one business model for Europe”.

French boost for SA development

first_img5 April 2006The French government is to spend €400-million (about R3-billion) over four years on infrastructure and environment development projects in South Africa, visiting French Minister for Cooperation and Development Bridgette Girardin said in Johannesburg on Tuesday.The funds, to be rolled out over the next four years, will be channelled through the French Development Agency (AFD). Girardin handed a draft document containing the financial pledge to Deputy Finance Minister Jabu Moleketi on Tuesday.“France, in accordance with the needs of South Africans, will concentrate her support over the next four years to development projects in three fields: basic infrastructure and services, employment, the environment and the fight against climate change,” Girardin said.She also indicated that, while 80% of France’s support would go to these three fields, her government was also prepared to commit funds in other areas such as health and cultural activities.“President [Jacques] Chirac wants to pose a levy on flight tickets to help in the facilitation of cheap drugs to this country . more than 6 million people need drugs and only half have access to them,” Girardin added.The French government’s development relations with South Africa date back to 1994.Through the AFD, the French government, in partnership with the Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA), has over the past five years supported projects worth more than R3.2-billion.“AFD operations over the past 10 years have allowed for the financing of municipal infrastructure which has improved access to basic services,” Girardin said.These have included municipal infrastructure projects such as housing and basic utilities; support for the productive sector; financing for small and micro enterprises; and skills and capacity building.The AFD and the DBSA are currently setting up a joint project to facilitate R25-million in support of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (Nepad).The French minister confirmed that funds were available for “12 different infrastructure projects in the fields of information technology” through the partnership between the two developmental financial agencies.“It seems clear that the partnership between France and South Africa spans across the entire African continent,” Girardin said, complimenting the DBSA, AFD and the African Development Bank for the efforts they were putting into development projects on the continent.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

The Google Knol Threat to Content Businesses – a Wiki Plug-in Might Level The Playing Field

first_imgDoes Knol (our review) make Google into a “content company”? Mahalo founder Jason Calacanis makes a compelling case. You can say he is conflicted, because his Mahalo venture has a lot to lose if Knol succeeds. Or you can say that he knows of what he speaks, because he is in the eye of the storm. Jason’s view that Google is the closest we have to an operating system for the web makes sense. His comparison to how Microsoft, an earlier generation operating system vendor, invaded the application market that had belonged to their partners, rings true. This is what dominant tech companies have always done.Google has to be careful with this. Their dominance of search and the number of companies that rely upon search engine traffic makes Google vulnerable to antitrust action. This is akin to Microsoft using Windows to take over application markets they deem critical.Antitrust is a lumbering beast and ineffective in fast moving technology markets. Historically, by the time it lumbers into action, the cycle is starting to move against the incumbent anyway. That happened with both IBM and Microsoft.I have already written about the danger of a Google monoculture; and was flamed by people who thought I was being alarmist. Slowly-boiled frogs seldom get alarmed until it is too late. The launch of Knol has turned up the heat enough to alarm some more people.Specifically, the issue with Knol is: how much Google tunes their search algorithm to favor Knol content vs alternative content on the same subject? This is where Google could be crossing the line. This is not so far from Microsoft bundling Explorer in order to beat Netscape.Mahalo and Squidoo – Roadkill?The companies that are most at threat are those like Mahalo and Squidoo, i.e. semi-automated aggregation plays. These appealed to VCs because they are more scalable than pure-play content. This market appeals to Google for the same reason. Mahalo, Squidoo and others are in the way and the steamroller is coming. They had better be really agile to get out of the way. They look like roadkill to me.Google may make more money for individual content creators than they can make from Mahalo, Squidoo or alternatives. So Google will get the popular vote and that may be enough to forestall antitrust action.However, even individual content creators may want to think twice. With Google providing both the content platform and the revenue, it feels a little bit like a medieval landowner who can change the rules on the peasants when it appeals to them. Of course Google would never be so evil as to exercise their “droit du seigneur“, but why put them in a position where they might be tempted?The Google Threat to Content CreatorsAnybody who employs content creators is certainly sensible to wonder when Google will re-define content in such a way that their business is threatened.Content creators – whether the individuals or their employers – increasingly rely on either WordPress or MT. Google’s Blogger is a distant third. Both have powerful plugin architectures. There is good open source Wiki code out there. What does it take to create a Knol-like “persistent community content” plugin for WordPress and MT? That looks pretty simple technically. Maybe its already out there, riding below the hype radar. It would fit the author-moderated model of a blogger or Blog network. It adds persistent content (read “more page views”). It gets away from reliance on feeding the reverse chronological mill.Then use OpenX rather than Google Ad Manager. And Piwik rather than Google Analytics. Bingo, it’s declaration of independence for content creators and their employers. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting bernard lunn A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img Tags:#Analysis#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts last_img read more
