Synopsis For Monthly Features
November 2014 issue of Comms Business
November – SIP and IP Phones
Comms Business Magazine examines the latest products on the market from budget handsets to top end feature phones as well as soft phone variants to provide resellers with a range of choices to consider for their customers.
We invite IP and SIP phone vendors to detail the latest products in their portfolios.
We request for each model to be considered for inclusion
- A high res photo of the handset or screen shot of the soft phone
- 100 words description of the key features including RRP
A short commentary on the state of the market including trends as seen by the vendor/distributor
November – Inbound Services
Adding intelligence and functionality to inbound calls is a growing market. If you can, for example, add call recording, then why buy an expensive CPE based call recorder?
Comms Business examines some of the inbound applications available from carriers for their channel partners.
We seek contributions from suppliers detailing in brief what services they offer, what the end user costs are and what margins resellers can expect.
Additionally expert tips on how to identify sales opportunities, case Studies and reseller comment would be welcome.
Tablets have developed from stand alone executive toys to highly effective business tools. Companies are faced with offering BYOD solutions to employees who prefer to use their personal tablets instead of company provided solutions.
This article reports on how tablets are having an impact in the workplace and how companies can manage their use to commercial/competitive advantage.
Case Studies and reseller comment welcome.
November – M2M/ the Internet of Things
Comms Business predicts that in the next twelve months we are going to see Machine to Machine (M2M), and the Internet of Things (IoT), solutions explode in our market. Resellers have been slow to adopt the technologies thus far but that is starting to change. By now most resellers will know of M2M but may not be aware of why they need to start looking to onboard this technology. The applications are vast and will touch a wide variety of markets. Striking up relationships with the right partners will enable resellers to get hold of this technology and sell it into their existing customer base.
We will ask the market…
- As it stands, what is your view of the M2M market and how will the Channel fit in with that view?
- What type of solutions are currently available and being actively sold by resellers? (case studies welcome)
- Does the Channel get M2M/ IoT? How much education is there still to be done?
- How big is the M2M/ IoT opportunity? What should resellers wanting to explore this area be doing?
- How do you see the M2M/ IoT market evolving over the next 12 -18 months?
