Motorola Founder Bob Galvin Dies At the Age of 89


The founder of the great mobile company Motorola,Bob Galvin dies at the age of 89.He died yesterday (11/10/2011).He was died in Chicago.
In this duration of time when he started Motorola,there were many ups and downs in the company.But when BOB was in the company the situation was not like that.Many Motorola leaders came to Bob when they faced hard times.
Bob Willam was the long time CEO of Motorola.Bob Galvin took over the company Motorola from his father V. Galvin and he was CEO and chairman of the company for around 29 years.
The company Motorola was initially named as Galvin Manufacturing Corporation.This is Bob Galvin who made this company a global company and the company value reached $11 bilion in the year 1990.
Below is the press release announcing Bob Galvin's death:

Under Galvin, Motorola led the creation of the global cellular telephone industry. It installed the first prototype cell phone demonstration system in Washington DC in 1971; unveiled the first portable cell phone prototype, the DynaTAC, in 1973; enabled the first commercial cell phone call, which was made on the DynaTAC by Ameritech, in Chicago in 1983; and introduced MicroTAC, the industry’s first compact cell phone, in 1989.
Finally, in 1996, with Galvin serving on Motorola’s board, the company manufactured the first pocket-sized ‘flip phone’, the StarTAC. These innovations paved the way to a cell phone market that now includes some 3.8 billion subscribers worldwide.
Throughout his career, Galvin made crucial investments in cellular R&D and advocated tirelessly for competitive telecom regulation across the globe, never wavering in his belief that cellular technology would revolutionize the way people communicated.
Another thing which i need to inform to you people which may be you know that Google is planning to acquire Motorola by the dollar $12.5.
LiFi the latest technology in Wireless Communication

LiFi the latest technology in Wireless Communication

Two latest technologies in telecommunication is been revealed in the last few weeks.The CEO of TED Global demonstrated that the data can be transmitted through LED light.So,the data will be transmitted through the LED light without any physical optical fiber.If there will be a LED light ,there will be data.
Meanwhile Steve Perlman of Rearden Labs has introduced another technology named DIDO which will break the Shannon's limit by 100 times.
So,in a very short time we are going to forget to connect to internet with the Wi-Fi and we will be used to connect to Wi-Fi through light bulb.
Whether you are using the internet in a coffee shop or trying to steal the internet from the next door of your friend or in a conference when you are facing the internet speed problem.As the user increases ,the speed of the internet gets decreased.
What if the speed gets constant though the user increases in the place.Normally we transmit the data through EM wave in the sky,what if we use the other part which is like?
A German Physicist named Harold Haas has come up with a solution which he says is "data illumination".Through this technique he has taken the optical part of the fiber out of the fiber optics and sending the data through light bulbs.
Harold Haas calls it as D-light and he examined that the data rate through this technique is almost 10 GB which is better than any of the internet connection.So,in a near future you will see that the street lams are transmitting data,the headlights of the cars will be also able to transmit data!

Distributed-Input-Distributed-Output(DIDO): A new solution to multiuser wireless network




Distributed-Input-Distributed-Output is a kind of solution which has allowed the multiuser wireless network to access a user a full data rate though the spectrum is shared among a specific number of people.This eliminates the interference between the users which are sharing the same spectrum.In the conventional wireless system the data rate drops as the number of user increases who shares the same spectrum .But with DIDO the data rate stays steady though the number of user increases.

DIDO solution is much more convenient and efficient and needs less amount of cost to establish the facility.The network structure is also not that much complex.DIDO has very high capacity and performance.
DIDO works in all places including indoor and outdoor,also in urban and suburban area.In rural area DIDO works upto a distance of 250 miles.
Scientist from different parts of the world were working on the DIDO technology for more than a decade.
To understand DIDO you first need to understand the procedure of Wi-Fi then one will understood which places are replaced by DIDO.

How to Start A VoIP Business


You can start VoIP business in Bangladesh in three ways.So you need to decide in which way you will start your business and which way you will choose.The three services to start a VoIP business are
1.You can directly provide services to the corporations and companies who start to go on VoIP business.
2.By becoming VoIP wholesale carriers.Consider in this case you need some good investment.
3.By becoming VoIP reseller.
This is to be noted that the second case needs a lot of finance which you can manage by managing a loan from the Bank.You also need various kind of equipment both for communication and transport and you also need a highly trained force.
You must need to know that Voice Over Internet Protocol is totally new concept in telecommunication.So,you must have some idea both technical and managerial which you can gain easily.But you need this and this is for sure. 
On these 3 ideas which i think you will like the first one and this is the easiest and straight one.The first one to directly provide service to the corporations and companies which you will love to do and if you are a small entrepreneur then this is best for you cause you do not need any big investment.You will be the direct service provider.
If you have a good budget and large finance then you can be a VoIP wholesaler and if you can expand the business and can do you identity in the market then you do not need to see backward.

Whatever may be the situation or among these 3 whatever type you are doing , whether you are a direct provider, wholesaler or reseller, it is highly suggested that you establish your own group of highly skilled personnel. Technical know-how on all the workings of VoIP is critical. This means training and hiring of technicians, troubleshooters, installers, equipment operators, customer service relation representative, technical assistance representatives, service and equipment assessors – and basically the whole lot.

Mobile VoIP - Bangladesh Is Going To be The Biggest Outsourcing Location


The outsourcing business which is related to VoIP is going to touch $1 billion within 2015.This outsourcing business can bring a good future to the country named Bangladesh.In BASIS software Expo 2011 this was the topic of discussion.I personally agree with the topic of the discussion that Bangladesh can change her fortune with the business of outsourcing.This discussion was organized by REVE Systems.
One of the keynote speakers Sukanta Dey, ex-President of Tata Teleservices told in the discussion that the mobile carriers are outsourcing their specialized works like billing,customer care,IT service and network management to some expert and specialized companies.
As Bangladesh is listed among top 30 outsourcing destinations in the world,this is quite sure that in future Bangladesh is going to get a lot of work.
Now the question is how VoIP will correlate this with outsourcing?Now think a company from Malaysia wants to handle all billing related calls by Bangladeshi people.Then VoIP can change the total model cause we know using VoIP the call rate is lower and in that case it will take an important part cause the calls are coming from overseas and if any customer needs to call by the agent then he or she can also make the call with lower rate.

Internet Bandwidth Price Again Drops in Bangladesh !


On 28 th July 2011 in a notification from BTRC (Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission ) again cuts the bandwidth price and the new bandwidth price is 10000 TK for Duplex line under any circumstances.This is a very good decision by BTRC and Bangladesh Government to spread the internet through out the whole country.
But the problem is ISP(Internet Service Providers) are still not taking any step to minimize their step.So,the the ISP forum in Bangladesh should take proper step to settle the price of home internet bit down as they need to pay less amount of money now.
Though Government is settling the price lower for internet still the price in the ISP are unchanged.BTRC should look into this also to meet the proper goal of settling the price low.Otherwise the whole benefit will go in the pocket of the ISP people.
