Mobile changing

Network Telephone Services embraces changes to the cell phone industry. New technology is making new infrastructures available and more attractive with every advancement.

Fading is the day when cell phone users are tied to a specific wireless carrier as Wi-Fi phones become more advanced and available.  Aiding this transition is the increasing availability of municipal Wi-Fi connections.  Mobile phone users may continue to have a primary carrier, but more often than not, wireless calls will be made by virtue of a wireless broadband connection at reduced costs and ever greater geographic coverage.

Network Telephone Services  is working with clients and consumers to embrace this evolution and integrate these new, more efficient solutions into the everyday operations of their enterprises and lives.

There has been a lot of noise from CLECS regarding the transition away from legacy old telephone networks and evolving to high speed broadband networks. The complaint lies in the belief that the new paradigm will somehow negatively impact “special access services” generally sold to retail business by wholesalers. The CLEC cry for further regulation had be heard even from the weakest cell tower.

At Network Telephone Services, we wholly embrace a free, unregulated market based solution.

Besides, why should special access service users be saddled with the legacy technology when newer, faster, lighter solutions are available such as IP-based broadband networks? Shouldn’t the remaining special access services users benefit from the advancements in the marketplace?

As this debate unfolds, it’s nice to see a glimmer of a free market and deregulation shining as the preferred solution.

radio_waves spectrumThe current white house administration congress find themselves under pressure to authorize the release of an increasing number of free and unlicensed airwaves. Technology, mobile computer and telecommunications industries predict major economic benefits as well as increased consumer flexibility as a result.

Network Telephone Services spokesmen have joined a regional coalition to lobby and pressure the White House and the FCC in this regard.

towersTeams looking to boost Wi-Fi services in municipal areas as well as metered monitored Wi-Fi hotspots are very interested in the release of the additional airwaves.  In apparent conflict is the administration’s desire to create more fee based, revenue producing licensed airwaves.

Next year, the Federal Communications Commission will auction off airwaves worth billions to wireless companies. Network Telephone Services is planning to be in a position to acquire several of these valuable assets and, in turn, increase  levels of service to its enterprise clients.

GPS footNetwork Telephone Services develops Sasquatch Finder Application specifically at the request of it’s largest Pacific Northwest Enterprise client.

Oregon based Carpet Man, Inc. has solicited the Mobile development division of the Telecom leader to develop an application to be deployed and used by the client’s field agents.

Seven Lucky GodsIn support of one of its Asia Pacific Clients, Network Telephone Services Cultural Events Committee has elected to co-fund an upcoming documentary featuring information and entertainment about the “Seven Lucky Gods”.  For those unfamiliar with the Seven Lucky Gods, the documentary sets out to explain how many of the icons, images and characteristics of the deities were derived from practices of both India and China.

In fact, Daikoku, god of wealth, commerce and trade was allegedly evolved when tales of the Hindu god Shiva became co-mingled with the Shinto deity Ōkuninushi.
In honor of the tradition and the auspicious number “seven”, as has been a theme here at Network Telephone Services, Culture Committee members will darn masks of the Seven Lucky gods in a funding road-show later this month.

Characters expected to be seen include:

    • Hotei, an overweight and jovial deity overseeing of abundance and good health
    • Jurōjin, the god of longevity
    • Fukurokuju, the god of joy happiness, wealth and longevity
    • Bishamonten, god of warriors
    • Benzaiten (Benten-sama), goddess of knowledge, art and beauty, especially music
    • Daikokuten (Daikoku), god of wealth, commerce and trade. Ebisu and Daikoku are often paired and represented as carvings or masks on the walls of small retail shops
    • Ebisu, god of fishers or merchants, often depicted carrying a sea bream

The documentary film makers will complete production in Fall of 2014. Interviews with leading theologians, Asian history experts and Network Telephone Services Culture Committee members are expected to be highlight points in the film.
