Funding Falling


We’ve written about the fall of investment funding within the telecom industry before and are always interested in what other folks have to say. It seems a lot.

In a recent posting by John (Jay) Borden, the CEO of OSS specialist Nakina Systems Inc., he too feels the pain of the industry. It’s rather frightening to see the thin red line of investment money that was drip fed into the sector and then compare that to the divergent climbing total. While the figures relate to the US market we suspect (though we cannot find evidence to support us) that the curve is similar around the globe?

Failure to launch

Failure to fuel the expansion of network gear and support capabilities will undoubtedly assure the North American communications industry a seat in the nose-bleed section of the global arena.

Borden was a speaker at the Telemanagement Forum in Nice, France (mon Dieu! How we wished to return there this year) and we’ve read from afar the various proceedings. He was also interviewed by Light Reading Europe.
