Hello, greetings, and welcome to Conversational Unified
Communications. I’m Brien Posey. For those of you who don’t
know me, I am a long time Conversational Geek author, and
17-time Microsoft MVP. My professional background is in both
IT and in commercial astronautics. It’s an odd combination for
sure. I sometimes find myself setting up virtual machines on
one day, and being strapped into a space capsule the next day
(seriously). Thankfully, Peter, Nick, and the rest of the folks at
Conversational Geek have embraced my unorthodox (dare I say
eccentric) career choices and have allowed me to author books
on subjects ranging from the cloud computing to real life
rocket science. I would like to personally invite you to go to
ConversationalGeek.com and check out some of these other
In this book, I want to talk about unified communications.
Those of you who follow my work may recall that back in 2009 I
wrote another book about unified communications called Brien

While NFV remains both technically and business relevant today, many communications service providers (CoSPs) have found implementation very complex. NFV implementation will require further evolution in order to fully address operational and business requirements. This white paper reviews factors currently driving the network virtualization evolution and examines the impact of adopting an innovative model based on software and hardware disaggregation.
Distributed cloud architectures will play an important role in Communication Service Providers’ network transformations. The distributed cloud will be made of numerous edge locations, from the customer premises to mobile base stations to central offices, each of which has its benefits and constraints. CSPs will need to consider attributes such as performance, availability, security, integration, and data and traffic volume to optimize the infrastructure for a myriad of workloads. Learn more about Heavy Reading’s survey results on CSPs adopting a distributed cloud strategy and delivering new services in this white paper.
5G services will place greater demands on the network in terms of peak data rates, connection density, and more. Learn how CoSPs are getting ready for 5G and how Intel® architecture is helping accelerate network transformation.

"We live and surf in a cyber world where attacks like APT, DDOS, Trojans and Ransomware are common and easy to execute. Domain names are an integral part of any business today and apparently an integral part of an attacker's plan too.
Domain names are carriers of malwares, they act as Command and Control servers and malware's ex-filtrate data too. In today's threat landscape - predicting threats, spotting threats and mitigating them is super crucial.. This is called Visibility and Analytics.
Watch this on demand session with our Cisco cloud security experts Shyam Ramaswamy and Fernando Ferrari as they talk about how Cisco Umbrella and The Umbrella Research team detect anomalies, block threats and identify compromised hosts. The experts also discuss how effectively Cisco spot, react, filter out IOC, block the network communications of a malware; identify and stop a phishing campaign (unknown ones too).
In Forrester’s evaluation of the emerging market for conversational computing platforms, we identified the seven most significant providers — Amazon, Google, IBM, Microsoft, Nuance Communications, Oracle, and Rulai — in the category and evaluated them. This report details our findings about how each vendor scored against nine criteria and where they stand in relation to each other. Application developers should use this review to select the right partners for their conversational computing platform needs.
Delivering personalized customer experience remains the top business challenge for communications
service providers (CSPs). Ovum's recently published 2018 ICT Enterprise survey saw almost all CSP
IT executives interviewed identify delivering personalized customer experience as one of their three
most important business challenges for the next 18 months. This trend emphasizes the high priority
CSPs place on how customer relationships are managed. However, several factors have an impact on
CSPs' ability to identify and then deliver customers' core needs. These include understanding the data
sets they should focus on; collecting, cleansing, and consolidating these data sets; and having the
right expertise to mine the data sets.

When it comes to how you communicate
with customers, you’re faced with some
big decisions—one of them being whether
to use an ESP or ECRM. Both platforms
can deliver your email, but beyond that,
these tools are pretty different.
Getting the right roster of marketing
tools is critical no matter where your
brand is when it comes to growth. If
you’re just starting to sell online, you
need platforms that won’t hold you back
when you hit your stride. If you’re part
of a long-standing enterprise, whichever
platform you adopt needs to be able to
handle anything you throw at it while
exposing opportunities you might not
have noticed before.
See what each platform was built for,
which companies benefit the most from
each, and which you should choose to
reach your brand’s goals.

Multinational companies (MNCs) are facing a unique combination of escalating customer, competitive and operational pressures which are forcing them to fundamentally change the way they do business and manage their IT infrastructures supporting network, security and mobility needs.
Lack of IT resources, limited capex and more complex global implementations are driving an increasing proportion of MNCs to offload, or 'out-task', various aspects of their day-to-day management responsibilities to skilled third-parties that can help perform these functions well.

Fraud is a serious concern for the communications industry, with proceeds and services used by organised crime and terrorist networks. Whilst reliable statistics are difficult to come by, industry association Communications Fraud Control Association (CFCA) estimates the total global fraud loss at around $29bn annually. Of this, over $7bn is attributed to subscription fraud and account takeover.

Telecommunications companies lost more than $29 billion to consumer fraud in 2017 globally (1.27% of their revenues). The largest and most advanced communications service providers (CSPs) have sophisticated fraud detection systems and processes in place, but those organizations are now questioning their fraud readiness. Are they doing enough? Fraudsters may be individuals or increasingly sophisticated criminal networks. They constantly develop new methods and target new lines of business
Read this interview where Anat Hoida, Head of the FICO’s Telecom Practice in Europe, Middle East, and Africa, discusses the impacts of the evolving spectrum of fraud risks on the growth and competitiveness of CSPs globally.
