DIDXchange: Broadband Plan Packs Potential for Communications Market

By Stefania Viscusi, Assignment Desk Editor

Today, the FCC (News - Alert) presented its long-awaited National Broadband Plan – a 10 year plan that includes connecting 100 million households to affordable services as well as offering affordable access to ultra-high-speed broadband for institutions such as schools and hospitals, and much more.
FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski (News - Alert) said this plan is, “a 21st century roadmap to spur economic growth and investment, create jobs, educate our children, protect our citizens, and engage in our democracy.”
To find out more about what this new plan means for the communications market, I caught up with Suzanne Bowen, vice president of Marketing for Super Technologies, Inc., and
DIDXchange (News - Alert), a Pensacola, Florida-based company and a registered and patented service of Super Technologies, Inc., provides Direct Inward Dialing or “DID” phone numbers to IP communications companies.
When asked what she thought of the new broadband plan, Bowen reminded me that as an ex-English teacher turned small business owner, she has a very different view from others who may have spent their entire carrer in telecommunications or businesses.
“I see a potential for new kinds of jobs to replace the old and obsolete, more opportunities for education for those who need it, and even better - more collaborative education, improved public safety networks, a narrowed gap between the 'haves' and the 'have not’s' and because of this new plan, the empowerment of entrepreneurs with the tools needed to start businesses that put the unemployed back to work,” Bowen told TMCnet.

In regards to how this new plan will affect the DID marketplace, Bowen noted that the market “is in every corner of Earth, wherever any one has a softswitch and an empowering and practical entrepreneurial idea for business.”

The new broadband plan, according to Bowen, is “a step in the right direction” for that type of individual or organization who wants to leverage direct inward dialing and call forward management with other services and products.

In turn, Bowen said, the new plan also, “pushes the future-thinking telecoms who are major suppliers of DID on DIDX, to expand their Internet and wireless services, products and devices and to change the paradigm of expected main streams of revenue.”
