  • For comparative purposes, this slide will enforce the importance of the IE as compared to other important sectors of the US economy. In little over 3 years the IE is larger than the traditional telecom economy and I suspect now that the IE should exceed the automobile sector which had been the engine of economic growth for a good part of the 20 th century. The IE is likely to be the primary engine for economic growth in the US now, and in other countries (soon? Now?). Speaker notes already existing on this slide from before: -- There are now more workers in the Internet economy than in the automobile sector which was then engine of previous economic boom periods in the US economy. -- The average salary in this sector is significantly higher than other sectors. In 1996 the average salary of workers in the Internet/high-tech jobs was $46,000 a year, more than 50 percent higher than the average wage of $28,000.(USDOC).
  • As the internet is a driving force in the ongoing economic boom, esp. in the USA. One of the best studies addressing the impact on the global economy was carried out by the Univ. of TX that in depth surveyed 3000 global US based companies on usage of the internet and IT. This 1998 study estimated that the internet economy was comprised of 301.4B dollars, which as you can see if substantial growth from 1995 (quote figure). From 95-98 the global economy grew at 3.8%. Compared to the growth of the internet economy of more than 174%. The main purpose of this graph is to indicate that the internet economy has become a driving force in the global economy and very much so in the united states.
  • Segue from slides 6 to 7…Not only is the IE important to boost productivity, it is important (in terms of b to b, b to c) Companies like Yahoo are b to c companies. The b to c part of the IE has grown dramatically (site dates and figures above). This has impacted the investment communities interest and participation. Even more dramatic is the growth of the b to b sector. Companies like iBasis are in the b to b sector. While many are concerned about b to c issues, focusing on and understanding the impact of regulation on b to b transactions is even more important to the growth of the asian economies.
  • The Internet took less than 4 years to reach 50 million users – which stands in sharp contrast to how long it took other telecom technologies to reach 50 million users. Not only will the Internet continue to spread at incredible speed, but it also allows developing countries to leapfrog technologies – specifically the circuit-based network. New low-cost IP and mobile services and equipment will enable millions of users in developing countries to access communications services and the Internet at a fraction of the cost circuit based networks without having to first obtain a telephone line, then buy a computer, a modem, etc. We at iBasis, for example, recently signed agreements to provide unified communications (UC) over our IP network. UC, when combined with inexpensive IP devices similar to Palm Pilots or other such devices, will enable users to communicate in new ways without ever having to touch a traditional telephone.
  • Only 5 … Only 2, ITXC and iBasis, are focused on b2b and p2p. We’re similar in many ways – about the same total traffic, for example, but we have different strategies: ITXC’s network consists of more, but smaller, points of presence, which means they’re getting smaller volumes of traffic on average from each of their partners. We have focused on large carriers from the beginning, and have built fewer, but higher capacity, points of presence in our network. Our ICOs are capable of carrying substantial volumes of traffic, and we’re increasing our ICOs, from 5 to 20 by the end of 2000. ITXC supports gateways from multiple vendors, which, due to the lack of interoperability standards among the vendors’ products, means that practically speaking ITXC’ network is actually a collection of smaller, incompatible networks. At iBasis, we believe interoperability would be great, and Cisco, as the market leader in VoIP will certainly be among the standard-setters. But, when standards don’t exist, operability is more important. So, we chose to build a totally homogeneous CPN. This distinction is even more critical in the deployment of value added services. Of course, it’s a very large market opportunity, and there’s plenty of room for multiple service providers, including ITXC. However, today, only one, iBasis, is delivering toll quality service to Tier one carriers.
  • Services not offered in ITH today: Collocation We do not provide Gateways from vendors other than Cisco We do not provide space and put in customer’s equipment Switch Partitioning We do not partition the switch and allow customers to control it
  • Integrated voice mail, e-mail and fax Access e-mail over the phone Access voice mail from the PC Paging notification Outbound dialing from within voice mail Single number “follow me” Web-based provisioning Full-featured hosted solution Built on Cisco uOne platform Leverages best-of-breed components Industry’s first standards-based, carrier-class unified messaging platform Enables service providers to quickly roll-out higher margin enhanced services
  • This is a simplified diagram of the iBasis Network for voice and fax over IP. Our customers are wireline and wireless carriers We have deployed Points of Presence all over the world to carry traffic over the Internet [CLICK] To support value added services, specifically Unified Communications, we are adding application servers, directory servers and storage devices from industry leaders Cisco, Hewlett Packard, Software.com, and EMC. Unlike earlier attempts at unified messaging, which were PC-based, we’re providing a true carrier-grade solution that is highly reliable & highly scalable. This is the communications services architecture of the future: It is a standards-based platform that allows for new devices and new applications Someday, for example, this architecture will enable you to access web content over basic black phones In this way, the iBasis architecture is unifying Internet and voice services.
  • Read thru this one. Conclusion: the issue and the challenge is not only the net for reg issues, you are talking about broader econ issues. Like President Clinton in the US says, it is the economy stupid, it is not just the internet. the previous sectors I previously discussed are interdependent. Regulating one internet sector, or targeting one specific type of service over others in the IE will adversely affect growth of other sectors. The dynamism of the IE and its growth comes in part from a group of small companies who are competing. The large corporations are not the ones who created the IE, it was and are the startups who are the leading forces and innovators. (point is that in some developing countries the IE will be developed by one or two of their largest companies and buy into what those large companies say. The point here is no!, the growth is driven by the smaller players. Developing an educated workforce is critical. This is important for regulators and gov’t officials to keep in mind.
  • When one compares traditional telephone networks to packet based, there are clear cost and flex benefits. Voip is more cost effective than trad circuit switched network. (JUST FOR BONNIE’S BACKGROUND)  Traditional telephone nw’s established a very cumbersome accounting rate system. Accounting rate systems used to be called an Accounting Rate Agreement. The two parties own half of the circuit under the sea, the other carriers owns the other half. They would compensate each other for traffic. for each minute of traffic that went over the network. Then they would divide by 2. The US carrier would keep 50 cents, the foreign carrrier the rest. The end of the month the network imbalance was paid out from one party to the other. There was also proportionate return that was aimed at protecting US carriers from other monopolies. Accounting rates are the way of the dinosaur. Termination rates or reciprocal compensations are the way to go now. IP networks are more flexible, can offer vas faster, better, cheaper…
  • Read from first bullet. Conclusion: VOIP should not be regulated as a telecom service. They issued a revision in 1999, that voip is not equivalent to telephony, when it is it should be very likely regulated. It is strongly encouraged in the EU and has had a good impact for its VoIP industry/adoption as a result
