Kagan: Judging the 2015 CTIA Awards

By Jeff Kagan  on July 27, 2015   Carriers, Opinion

Once again I would like to thank CTIA for inviting me to be a judge in their 2015 CTIA Awards. There are so many companies–large, small, new and old–with so many innovative ideas. This year’s entries are exciting in their own slice of the pie. And the wireless industry is like a growing pie with lots of different slices. Let’s take a closer look at some of those new ideas and what’s coming next in wireless.

Kagan: Secret to successful industry analyst briefing

By Jeff Kagan  on August 10, 2015

The upcoming CTIA Super Mobility 2015 show reminds me once again of a problem many companies have dealing with the wireless analyst community. Since industry analyst opinions are important, every company wants us to think of and speak highly of them. So if good relationships with the telecom analyst community are so important, why do so many companies screw it up?
