China Telecom Shanghai Goes Online with Juniper Networks TX Matrix Plus

Juniper Networks® announced that the Shanghai Branch of China Telecom Corporation (NYSE: CHA, HKEx: 728) has deployed its top-of-the-line multi-chassis routing system in a production environment. Implementation of the Juniper Networks TX Matrix Plus, interconnecting Juniper Networks T1600 Core Routers, provides China Telecom with an extremely stable and flexible platform to continue scaling the core of its super metro area network in Shanghai and to support Expo 2010, which is taking place in the city.

China Telecom has 3.5 million Shanghai broadband customers, including 1.2 million IPTV subscribers, and had been using Juniper Networks TX Matrix with three T640 Core Routers within its network there since 2006. With a continually increasing customer base and rising bandwidth demand in China's largest and most commercially important city, which has a population of more than 20 million, the company needed a core routing platform that would make it easier to continue scaling its metro area network services.

Telecom NZ International Increases Global Internet Telephony Footprint with Juniper Networks Switching Technology

Juniper Networks®  announced the first phase of a project to upgrade Telecom New Zealand International’s (TNZI) global network and increase the number of international points of presence (POPs). By deploying Juniper Networks EX Series Ethernet Switches, the upgrade extends TNZI’s global footprint in the delivery of internet telephony and increases the number of call minutes the telecommunications provider can carry and trade.

TNZI is a global internet telephony provider and trades with over 200 voice customers and vendors worldwide, carrying around two percent of all global voice traffic or nearly five billion minutes per year. Its legacy network didn’t allow TNZI to cost-effectively expand into new geographies, limiting the scale of the network and the company’s growth potential.

Made-in-Malaysia Facebook App is growing at 1,000 new users daily

A Malaysian IT application provider, Just IT, has recently launched a Facebook App called Fantasy World Cup (http://apps.facebook.com/fantasywc) and now growing at 1,000 new users per day.

Branded as FanXT (www.fanxt.com), this Facebook app is a fantasy football game based on the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2010.

“We just launched this app on Facebook on 24th of May and it’s already growing so well with Facebook users from around the world. The best part is, we spent zero marketing dollars to promote this app. All our traffic is totally from friends invites. We expect the membership to grow exponentially towards World Cup“, said Melvin Wong, the CEO of Just IT and brand creator of FanXT.

“We emphatically feel that Facebook is a superb platform for viral marketing and we love to see more Malaysian companies embracing this phenomenal social media. Having a Fan Page or Groups may not be sufficient because there are not much interactivity with it. Having a Facebook App creates a more conducive environment for brands to engage with the users. And this makes them coming back for more”

To play the Facebook App, each Facebook user is given a $100 million funds to build his own World Cup team. They can buy players from 32 countries competing in World Cup, such as Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal, Lionel Messi of Argentina and Wayne Rooney of England.

Besides offering an exciting fantasy football experience, this app also offers live scores, results and fixtures for World Cup 2010. The World Cup news is provided by Bernama as part of their joint venture partnership.

This Fantasy World Cup app is also available in on web, WAP, J2ME, iPhone, Nokia WRT and new Nokia smartphone OS called Maemo.

Hotlink Number Expired

After 3 months without reload, the number will be expired and is to be recycled back to the market. Unless you have subscribed to the 365 plan.

Once this happened, you can't top up the account to make it active again.

The is one way to get back the number; convert the number to postpaid account.

Here is what I have done and it works.
  1. Go to Maxis Center at Menara Maxis Jalan Ampang. You can't do it elsewhere, they will tell you it is not possible and there is no way to appeal.
  2. Request to convert the number to postpaid account. You will be given a new sim card for this purpose.
  3. You need to know two things:

    1. The number which you want to claim back
    2. The name and IC number of the person who had registered as prepaid owner of the number.
  4. Once you have submitted this request at the customer service counter, the request will be processed and Maxis will call you back within 1 working day to inform you of the outcome of the request. If successful, you will need to go back there to finish the process within 7 working days, otherwise the number will be recycled back to the market.
  5. For some reasons, usually they will discourage you from doing so (initially), you need to be nice to them and tell them that the number is important to you.
    Remember to smile and ask them nicely - very important

It can be done.

Integrate with Facebook API ?

Assuming you are developing a custom web site.

Google has the data API.

For Facebook, the API is called the Graph API. Why graph ? Because it is social graph.

Ok. Cool.

The Graph API is not part of a SDK (software development kit), it is really more like an extension.

This actually translates into two things.
  1. If you are using Graph API, you have to go side by side with Facebook. Totally cut-off Facebook will not work.
  2. Integration not later, but from the beginning. This means that you have to think about integration from the beginning of custom web site development.
So, these are the things that you can do with Graph API.
  • Selection - Filtering and querying for information.
  • Introspection - Another querying feature.
  • Authorization
  • Publishing to Facebook
  • Deleting Objects
  • Pictures
  • Paging
  • Search
  • Real-time Updates
  • Analytics
However, bear in mind that the API will give you access and control of informations which you are entitled to; such as your friends' list. And you can't see your friends' extended friends.

Fair enough. And this also means that you need to login (get authorized) to do all these things. So, the Graph API will not provide any sort of super user experience.

Your web page is like a public page while facebook is meant for interactions, just like a corporate intranet.

So, what is the most practical application out of this ?

I am more fanatic if Facebook allows integration of modules (i.e events, walls, photo manamagement) to custom web sites which is not possible (at least for now).

It may seem redundant because Facebook itself is a content management system (cms) and if you are having content management system in your web site, then which one will be the core ?

This is what I figure.

Since you have to login (get authorized) to do things and you can't see things which you are not authorized to. And by allowing single sign-on to your custom web site, it presents an opportunity to break the social networking barrier; which is to share data of your friends to the world.

In other words, by integrating Graph API to your custom web site, now you can share information of your friends to the world so that those not 'connected' to your friends can now see what they are up to.

For instance, you can build a web site to consolidate birthdays of your friends and birthdays of not your direct friends into a single view.

The key is about presentation and sharing of personalized information to the next level.

Do you get what I am saying ?

Means that supposed you have 10 friends and you can only see 10 birthdays. Each of your 10 friends has another 10 friends. So how do you get to see these 100 birthdays ?

Build a web site and integrate Facebook's Graph API, then create a feature which will allow your 10 friends to publish their friends' birthday into a single location. Then now you can see the 100 birthdays.

So, to put things into practical perspective, your custom web site should become an account in Facebook (such as Soccer-Petaling-Jaya).

You will still need to build your own modules such as events and etc.

Juniper Networks Malaysia Comments on 10th Malaysia Plan

According to En. Wan Ahmad Kamal of Juniper Networks Malaysia.

The 10th Malaysia Plan intends to ensure 75% household broadband penetration by 2015, promote and incentivise the development and use of green products and services, and connect Malaysian researchers to the global research community:

“The internet everywhere, has become an important enabler of the country's socio-economic development. With growth expected in online cloud computing, data centers and fixed and mobile applications, moving the country up the broadband value-chain will improve management efficiency, competitiveness and better collaborations with other eco-system partners worldwide.

Technological progress and innovation plays a central role in a country’s economic progress. Connecting Malaysia to the global community’s research and innovation networks will allow faster exchange and analysis of large volumes of information, driving innovation in areas as diverse as medicine, biotechnology, energy, and environmental sciences; while network innovation is lowering operating expenditures and allowing third party software developers to offer new business opportunities to the service providers by way of monetizing their network infrastructure.

The technology initiatives announced are therefore important; as they will help create a conducive environment to spur innovation and help build a knowledge-based economy focused on skills and productivity, to stimulate economic growth and development towards a higher-value economy.”

Yup. Definitely not a new idea.

SAS Media Day 2010 - Conclusion

In conjunction with SAS Media Day 2010.

In terms of my own analysis and the appreciation of what came out of the SAS Media Day 2010.

Business Analytics:

SAS Malaysia is a US based company with core focus on Business Analytics.

Business Analytics used to be known as business intelligence which is a bigger concept of data warehousing, data mining and reporting.

Check out the official and details of what Business Analytics is all about here.

In short Business Analytics is about making sense of the data and make good use of it. For instance, how do you know when to sell high and sell low ? You need Business Analytics.

The New Normal:

Roger Ling, Research Manager of IDC Malaysia presented the concept of The New Normal.

The New Normal is a contradict of the Old Normal. Old Normal means normal, thus New Normal means it is normal but in a new way. In short, new normal means what's more you can do out of what you have?

In terms of SAS and the business of Business Analytics, the Old Normal looks really normal. Roger Ling from IDC explains this as such that when the world was engulfed in the economy crisis, by theory, the market should shrink. Ironically, the market for Business Analytics didn't. As such, spending what is necessary makes the premise for cost saving and apart from doing all sorts of product compounding and consolidation activities, Business Analytics (End user query reporting and advanced analytic market) also contributes to cost saving. I do not have the actual figures, but we can check with IDC on this.

And for The New Normal, Roger Ling presented that that Social Media Analytics is what going to be a big factor.

Social Media Analytics:

For Social Media Analytics, according to presentation of Ms. Helen Lim (Director of Presales, Financial Services Industry, SAS Malaysia), is about analyzing what's publicly available from the Outside (of the corporate) particularly the Internet and use the data to make better decision for the corporate. This actually blends well with the business of Business Analytics.

The values of Social Media Analytics are:
  • Protect Brands
  • Better Customer Service
  • Analytics for Marketing
And SAS Malaysia is gamed for it already. Solution comes in the form of:
  • Data Analysis
  • Integrated data with CRM and marketing system
  • Follow-up consulting services
How the Data are being analyzed ?
  1. Collect data
  2. Grouping (classification) of data
  3. Presentation of data
And the industries that most likely will become early adopters of Social Media Analytics are:
  • Hospitality
  • Automobile
  • Banking
  • Online Retail
  • Telecommunication


Software As A Service(SaaS):

Social Media Analytics is still in the early stage and it will probably take a year or two for it to happen. However, SAS thinks that the critical success factor is Software as a service (SaaS) which is powered by cloud computing. SaaS yields the benefits of:
  1. Low entry barrier (plug and play)
  2. Low upfront investments
  3. Faster time to market
According to Allan Tham (Head of Technology Practice, SAS Malaysia), SAS is SaaS ready. SAS' SaaS readiness can be measured in terms of the following developments.
  • 2008 Q1 - Business Intelligence SaaS
  • 2008 Q3 - Campaign management SaaS
  • 2010 Q2 - Social Media Analytics
Volatility and Business:

With SaaS, we are talking about standard solutions and crazy business dynamics; anything can happen to your business anytime. For this, was explained by Ahmad Shukri (Director of Governement Practice, SAS Malaysia) in the presentation of 'Volatility and You'. According to Ahmad Shukri, there is a way to measure volatility which is via Volatility Index (VIX) and SAS has best practices for that.

So, the gifts which SAS Malaysia presented to you are 3S:

Social Media Analytics, SaaS, Speed.

In my opinion, business is getting harder to do and one really can't live without software. If your competitors are using Business Analytics, you better use Business Analytics.

For entrepreneurs, you know what you should be looking forward to ?
