With Wireless Field Day, err .. Mobility Field Day a few days away. Has our view on wireless changed? Are the players in the wireless space willing and accepting of this change, or has this changed taken place without them?
I have the feeling that the big boys in the space are concerned about this change. They have placed lots of money into the wireless name and people know what it is, maybe not by the word “wireless” but you say “wi-fi” people instantly know what you’re talking about. Do they know how it works, maybe, maybe not, are do they even care? They just know something on the mobile device changes either while at home or maybe work.
I have great hopes that Mobility Field Day will be the dented armour that we all used and was placed in the closet. Now it’ll be brought back into the light, shined up and on for another round. I think this will be a catalyst for new things in both the wireless and the new mobility landscape.
The question still is, are people willing to tear down a bridge and start new? People always say: never burn bridges. However, if you can’t burn the bridge down to light your new path, what’s the point?
Or maybe you’re just making a bigger and better bridge…
