Alpheus Communications Opens New Dallas-Based Office

By admin, July 17, 2012 8:19 pm

This week, the management of Alpheus Communications?(News – Alert) has announced the opening of a new office in the Dallas metro area. The company – for those of you who are not familiar with them – describes its services and the expansion in the following terms:?

“Since 2000, America’s largest telecom carriers have relied on Alpheus’ fiber network to serve their Texas customers, and Alpheus is now offering the same carrier-grade, low-latency services directly to businesses. The strong DFW economy and thriving business community is driving the fast-growing need for high-quality networking solutions in North Texas. With a fully redundant and resilient core fiber network, Alpheus’ newly added enterprise services includes Metro Ethernet, MPLS, E-LAN and business-class voice services. All Alpheus services provide the performance and uptime guarantee required for mission-critical data, voice and video traffic. Alpheus’ multiple data centers with scalable connectivity to its fiber network and SSAE-16 compliant platform give businesses the secured, scalable and redundant infrastructure for disaster recovery and business continuity applications.”

While the company seems to have a handle on what businesses need, there is a real difference in the needs of businesses and the needs of consumers, so this expansion is a little bit of a stretch for the organization. The company appointed Justin Shively as division manager for the new Dallas office. In the release, put out by Layne Levine, senior vice president, enterprise and channel sales, for Alpheus Communications, the following was said about the appointment, “Justin has a proven track record in our industry, and he will be an extremely valuable asset to Alpheus’ aggressive growth strategy. Not only does Alpheus have the high-quality, high-capacity fiber network and metro reach that businesses are looking for, we are agile and responsive to our customers’ needs. We are a Texas company focused on serving Texas businesses.”?

Will the venture be a success? In the end, only time will tell.

The Cable Show Guavus Inc., a leading provider of big
data analytics solutions that enable service providers and enterprises
to make intelligent and timely decisions, announced the creation of its
Cable Advisory Board with anchor members Sudhir Ispahani and Marwan
Fawaz. Ispahani and Fawaz are former CTOs of Liberty Global and Charter
Communications, respectively, and will advise Guavus on matters
pertaining to how cable operators can best leverage big data analytics
for competitive advantage.

“Cable companies have morphed into hubs for total connectivity”

“Sudhir and Marwan are tremendous resources when it comes to
understanding specific business problems in the cable marketplace,” said
Anukool Lakhina, founder and CEO of Guavus. “They intuitively foresee
innovative ways in which big data analytics can address the needs of
cable operators and help us tailor solutions that deliver immediate and
long-reaching ROI.”

Ispahani previously served as the Chief Technology Officer and Chairman
of the Technology Board for Liberty Global Europe, United Pan European
Communications and Chello Broadband, where he was responsible for the
strategic technology roadmap and implementation of triple play services
serving over 15 million subscribers across Liberty and its affiliated
subsidiaries. Ispahani was the first founding President of

Ispahani. “It’s no longer just about TV and Pay-Per-View. It’s about
fast and seamless access to cloud providers such as NetFlix and Hulu,
pristine voice communications and simultaneous Internet connectivity
across multiple devices in a household or business. This creates a
wealth of usage data that operators have to leverage if they want to
remain profitable. With its innovative solution for continuously
analyzing and fusing multiple data streams in motion, Guavus can answer
this call.”

“Sudhir and I both recognize Guavus’s unique value proposition for cable
operators,” said Fawaz. “Guavus stands out for its comprehensive

The More Things on a Small Screen Change …

In a present-tense culture, solid anniversaries tend to get swept divided by a whirlwind of stream events. Here’s an example: Network radio as we know it came into being on Sept. 4, 1951, when ATT threw a switch on a initial transcontinental coaxial cable. Up to that time, TV had been an radically informal phenomenon. The many critical network shows were all achieved live in New York, and a usually approach for West Coast viewers to see them was for fuzzy-looking film copies called “kinescopes” to be shipped to Los Angeles and promote a week later. The coaxial wire altered that by creation it probable to broadcast live video signals from seashore to coast—in both directions. Within a matter of months, Hollywood had turn a vital core of TV production. nbso online casino .

Don’t be broke if we didn’t know any of this. So distant as we know, no one has taken note of a solid anniversary of a coaxial cable, or distinguished a 60th birthdays of 3 successful array that a wire done possible. But if we owned a TV set in 1951, we competence good remember these Truman-era debuts:

Oct. online casino’s . 15, 1951: “I Love Lucy,” a initial Hollywood-based sitcom to be shot on film with 3 cameras in front of a live studio audience. Lucille Ball’s crazy antics shortly done it a many renouned uncover on a air. At a time when there were usually 15 million TV sets in America, 11 million families watched “I Love Lucy” any Monday night.

Nov. 18, 1951: “See It Now,” a initial TV newsmagazine, whose initial part non-stop with a shot of dual control-room monitors. One showed a live design of a Statue of Liberty, a other a live design of a Golden Gate Bridge. Edward R. Murrow, a host, was visibly impressed: “For a initial time, male has been means to lay during home and demeanour during dual oceans during a same time.” It might sound old-fashioned now, though 60 years ago that picture took people’s breaths away.

Dec. 16, 1951: “Dragnet,” a initial filmed crime play to make endless use of plcae shooting. When Jack Webb non-stop any part by observant “This is a city,” he meant Los Angeles, not a close TV studio somewhere in midtown Manhattan—and that’s what we saw on a tiny screen.
