Telecom Equipment Market Happy As Can Be

While there has been lots of grumbling from wireless carriers about local number portability, and lots of worries and pre-emptive actions by telecom providers concerning VoIP – one part of the tech sector is thrilled by all this activity. Telecom equipment vendors are drooling over all the technology that needs to be bought. Already, with telecom firms changing and upgrading equipment, the market looks good if you’re selling the necessary infrastructure to either wired or wireless players. Local number portability has played a role in that the various carriers are beginning to realize they need to compete on quality, and that means upgraded equipment. Already, they were going through upgrades to get to higher speed data networks, and this just adds to the push. Derek: And almost every subscriber that ports gets a new phone. KaChing.
