The Telecoms.com Podcast: A Pokémoan

This week the gang digests the goliath acquisition of ARM by Softbank and whether the move will position the Japanese telco conglomerate as a force in IoT.

The chaps go on to look at mobile gaming and how Pokémon Go has absolutely exploded across the world in week two of Pokémania, and what it means for telecoms as some of the group have a bit of a Pokémoan. Finally, the gang investigates dangerous worker social media habits and celebrates the 80th birthday of BT’s talking clock.

The Telecoms.com podcast – an IoT special

This week the gang dives into everything surrounding the internet of things. What is IoT, and what does it mean for today’s telecoms industry?

We also get into connected cars, and whether self-driving vehicles will take off.
