......Just read the entire "white paper" from Ovum, and it is looking good for ETAK and VS DNA 2.0. Seems moving it from the hardware big boys to a software platform is the most easily adaptable version. This is most likely what happened with IBM. IBM was stuck in the corporate big boy platform of - it is good enough - and ETAK takes seven years of development and throws the big boys for a loop and gets their business.
......This leads me to believe that the HP partnership will lead to more than HP being a reseller of ETAK's security services. Eventually they may enable ETAK with the servers and jut buy them out. As Ovum pointed out in their white paper, many other Big Boys are out there creating their own systems, and while ETAK has the lead now, a partner like HP may be needed to gain acceptance of ETAK and then gain market share. iusacell, Zain, HP, FICO should see HP as a positive step.
.....PS: anyone see the news about Apple cloud cell phone hacks of celeb accounts, could have easily been financial data too. One weak link and your data is out there.
14 posts since May/2013- just another alternate Bashing ID fo v-star one of many Ignore
Your ID is from Aug 22nd, and you have spammed MEDA, and this PLWY on over 40 boards in the last hour and a half. YAHOO should ban you or at least charge you a buck a post for advertising fees. IGNORE the keny ..............
And it serves a realistic view to remember how contracts & time frames were spoken of in the CC. A negotiation may take 1 month to complete on ETAK's side, but may also take up to 4 months regarding financial arrangements. Secondly, per CC, the 8 million total may happen by the end of 2014, or the beginning first Q of 2015. Thirdly, Zain (and others- 2 more contracts being aggressively pursued) is looking at ETAK's migration of iusacell in Mexico as a metric for their own business. Etak is looking for a seamless transition model - so if it takes longer - by one Q yet gives seamless migration w/o sim fraud, this is more important. VS DNA 2.0 should be the real money maker in the future with FICO/HP HSS services.
If marlin888 post is correct about Spain and iusacell is about 12-14 nillion subscirbers, and the over 10 million subs are about equivalent: we need to know a few things.
.....How much can the platform support now.
.....How fast can the platform be replicated and a what expense for additional Sim migration from Zain Vodaphone other 2 deals n the works per CC that may take 1-4 months to complete, and HP HSS 6-9 months from now to start up,,,,,
.....Is this financing here to service this expansion, and if yes it would be seen positive to take on debt to expand......
Now the only question I have about the Press Release is the "about" 10 million number in the last paragraph. Given that the ETAK?DNA 2.0 is all software and cloud based, the current situation seems t limit the service to 10 million subscribers. Am I reading that correctly ?? "designed to support over 10 million subscribers."
.....We know they are looking for financing to expand per last CC. Will the financing be mostly for the Servers & auxi towers needed to support the cloud based systems ? If you add in the 8 million subs from iusacell to other planned subs, how will they handle this and how much would it cost ?? Seems financing is absolutely needed to expand for new cutomer bases like Zain, Fico,HP HSS. Perhaps HP will provide the servers (?) while ETAK provides the software to load onto the servers ?????? It would certainly cut costs.
.....Based on the first three successful migrations we have completed, we are confident that we will remain on course for our planned migration of approximately 5 million pre paid GSM subscribers and the almost three million other iusacell subscribers.. CEO Steven van Velden
.....In close cooperation with iusacell, we have successfully migrated another group of iusacell subscribers with out a single SIM module having to be changed. (The tech platform works) Martin Zuubrier chief tech officer
.....DNA 2.o platform: We believe it is the only single software platform designed to support a capacity of over 10 million subscribers and seamlessly provisioning 2G/2.5G/3G/4G LTE and CDMA standards. WHILE being hosted in the ETAK platform, carriers can significantly reduce capitol investment in new hardware (because ETAK/DNA 2.0 it is cloud based software) eliminate legacy software and hardware as well as reduce network operating and maintenance costs..... (Platform is not in the basement any longer,) (just like CD's were replace by ipods, physical discs to cloud based, digital).
......I was going to say the same, but well you got there first. I DOUBT any of the Nay SAyers will congratulate or acknowledge this event as a positive, but they are generally on ignore. After today's announcement perhaps many will stop responding to the eternal Nay Sayers.
I do not know of a reason for a company to with hold good news, especially after announcing it on the CC just days ago. I am a glass half full guy, and am willing to await results for the next few Q's when the real story begins with iusacell,then Zain end of 2014, Fico,and HP at the 2nd half of 201,5 the 6-9 months time frame n the CC.. Still strongly believe it is a great game plan, not to be rushed nor judged on days, but on sequential Q's of growth- 12 so far.
.....Holding on for good reasons waiting on great results.
Huge volume all at once, and Canadian is at .61 to US at .55.
Someone just took a big position all at once.
Given the one year chart a look, and I think the .44 to .49 area as the low. Good enough here to take a 50% position in case the bigger world events cause more fear and selling. Could-not should see- .49 again. OK now to enter into a position. I know a nickel is not much, but it is about a 10% diff that would make a good trade position if you could get the other 50% at that range.
74 post in 4 hours today. Bashing is in his blood, on Ignore again, not just a few days LOL
And he is not only desperate but has 5-7 ID's LOL. On Ignore forever, and not just a "few" days LOL
under development, just not ready to reveal until the contracts are worked out. But again, danged if you do not tell us, and danged if you do and it takes longer than you said. Caution is the better part of valor and business, only the reckless would pull a RAMBO style and expect victory- although it made an entertaining movie- it makes poor business and little trust.
.....Can't you make a simple logical extrapolation, if 2.6 million sims gets us this income numbers as they migrate in the 4th Q to add to iusacell, could it be 1-2 million by the end of Q1 in 2015 ? Easily if iusacell gets th bugs worked out in prep for Zain. Fico orHP in the second half of 2015 is a given 6-9 month time line and I can not even extrapolate those numbers- BUT it is a Good Soild business plan with strong end users. But bashers say, no it will never happen. Half of the sims have happened, 5/8 total sims by end of the Q3, and final 8 million sims by end of Q1 2015 at the latest.
.....So that would be a timeline of Q3, Q4, and Q1/2015, or a "few" Q's- three to be exacting using the word "few". Is that a good enough use of the "FEW Q Expansion Plan " for ETAK, and not a daily diatribe of tripe
.....Please do not encourage this type of distractive poster.
......Everyone knows, and has properly argued, ETAK has to FIRST successfully migrate iusacell w/o any flaws and this is more important than a given day, because Zain/Saudi will see this as a mile stone to their success and future migration.
.....Arguing for a date for Friday 8/15 or Tuesday 8/19 based on a CC stating a few days is : a dog with a bone --that three days has to be it or all is lost, and chicken little has the sky falling again !
.....Having all 3.3 million sims was given a time table- not a date- on the CC for at the end of 2014, or the first Q of 2015. Remember , some of this is related to the other company's time tables and not ETAK's.
.....Arguing past wait and see deals with past companies as not fruitfull yet, is not the same as arguing never fruitful at all-never ever. The last CC was carefully under promise and over deliver. In the past it was over promise and under deliver. Bashing for past over promise is valid, but then to bash again for under promise is to be bashed - or to say- dang if you do and danged if you don't.
.....Current positives not ever acknowledged: UK Banks are using VS even though it may only be a fraction of revenues- it is a first step to getting validation for other Banks. 2.6 million sims, with 500,000 to follow " in a few days"- why not wait for the weekend and announce Monday in a few plus one- ironic pun intended. Will bashers then acknowledge 3.1 million sims as a valid victory ? Not Likely because it took to long ?? Super-sillious.
12 Q's of growth even w/o all the designed contracts that have not been fulfilled-yet. HP- PLEASE give it 6-9 months for the revenues to flow-per CC. What if it takes 10 months-bash it all as a failure? As stated on the CC, some parties are being courted, and it may take 1 month or four months to complete, so no real time line can be given. This is not to say ETAK has no other revenue streams and contracts under .
