MWC2013: The Mobile Dichotomy, Net-Head versus Cust-Head - Alan Quayle Weblog

VoicecloudJapan's insight:

Voxeo Labs were everywhere at the show, Tropo was powering a number of excellent demos on mobile insurance claims and Salesforce.com integration at the Huawei stand, congratulations to Huawei in showing their ability to harness external innovations to deliver exciting innovative services to their Telco customers.  Ameche was being demo'ed at Ericsson's booth with a beautifully simple in-call voice agent, Ameche was reviewed last year in this article.  For me Voxeo Labs is a beacon to the future of our industry.  It's about the core service of communications being embedded everywhere; myaNUMBER,Crunched, Tropo.com, AT&T Call Management API, and Telekom Tropo all demonstrate there's money to be made in communication APIs. AND It's about services that are unique to owning a network, that run in real time, and in the telecom cloud.  Yet the GSMA didn't have Voxeo Labs involved in any of their conference events, all I can say is shame on the GSMA when they cannot recognize the critical innovations to the future of our industry.
