Best of 2009: It wasn’t all about Apple

Apple was a catalyst for a lot in 2009, but there are some trends the software giant can’t take credit for:

  •  New “wholesale” markets like CDN and mobile backhaul emerging as hot growth areas
  •  Network equipment vendors overnight turning into outsourced network operators
  •  DPI and policy entering the network in a big way – adding intelligence to the network
  •  Vertical solution areas – most notably smart grids – emerging as key driver of network growth
  •  The acceleration of 4G

The great android v. Apple debate after the break…

  • Apple wins in 2009, more apps, now mainstream; in 2010, can Android multi-carrier, multi-OEM strategy mean overnight catch-up?
  •  Girly versus manly (and offensive)? According to Verizon’s ads, the iPhone is for girly bimbos and the Droid is for manly men.
  •  Which platform will get more porn?
