Sprint touts nationwide 3G wireless

www.nwfusion.com [cached]

Gian Zoppo, CIO for marketing company Porter Novelli's U.S. region, says wireless has a lot of potential, especially when it comes to giving mobile workers access to internal systems.But, he says, he's not looking at implementing wireless data in a big way anytime soon because wireless coverage in the U.S. is still spotty.

"When you get to a destination, you're never sure whether it's going to work or not," he says.
Another problem is that U.S. carriers, unlike their European counterparts, haven't adopted a universal standard, Zoppo says, so roaming from one carrier's coverage area to another often won't be an option in the U.S.
Sprint isn't the first wireless carrier to introduce next-generation wireless services, but it is the first to claim national coverage.Sprint is billing the new network, based on Code Division Multiple Access technology, as a 3G service.
However, the current network, like other wireless carriers' next-generation networks, is only a step on the path to true 3G.True 3G will support speeds up to 2M bit/sec, while Sprint's new network, and the upgraded networks of its rivals, support average speeds of 40K to 70K bit/sec, bursting up to 144K bit/sec.

Gian Zoppo, CIO for Porter Novelli International Inc.'s U.S. region, says those employees being let go by big network companies don't necessarily have the skills in demand by IT shops.

"The biggest need is on the programming side, such as for Java, and for integrating legacy applications with new ones, such as those based on XML," he says.

WorldCom launches Ethernet portfolio

napps.nwfusion.com [cached]

Gian Zoppo, CIO for marketing firm Porter Novelli's U.S. region, isn't considering deploying Ethernet in the MAN or WAN at this point but can see cases where it might be useful.

"It could work with storage technology," he says."It would be better to have a LAN-type technology there [such as Ethernet] than something that was designed for the WAN."
Another application Zoppo could see for Ethernet is as a possible replacement for costly, high-speed WAN links.
Zoppo says pricing will play a major factor in determining whether businesses will move to Ethernet, especially in the current economic climate.
WorldCom's Dedicated Internet and Ethernet Metro services initially will be available in five markets: New York City, Chicago, Dallas, San Francisco/San Jose and northern Virginia/Washington, D.C.
The Private Line Ethernet offerings will be offered over WorldCom's SONET infrastructure and will be available nationwide.
To access WorldCom's Ethernet services, businesses need to be in a building that has direct fiber access to WorldCom's network.WorldCom has about 6,000 such on-net locations.
