Telecom (4)

My Visit to Telecom Opreator POP

Recently i visited A telecom company POP(Point of presence -a remote network operations center).I am not mentioning the place & the person who get me in there because there are some secrecy concerns & some confidential information, pop is located somewhere in Pakistan which is operated by a most powerful telecom company having fiber backbone in probably all cities of Pakistan, the pop where I went connects some major cities including Islamabad, Murree, Taxila, Abbottabad,Mansehra and some small cities on way.

Telecom (2)

The NOC was full of Routers, switches, firewalls and media converter & fiber metro switch connecting some corporates including universities comsats etc. The operator had maintained tier 2 standards.

BTS of Warid telecom is also located on 2nd floor  of building which is On 4G LTE most advanced (not always because LTE advanced pro (4.5G)is already deployed by some operators) but is was good and professionally maintained.

Although it was a great experience for me i have spent almost 10 hours there to understand the network topologies and actual in/out.

What are the hardware the NOC equipped with

Entrepreneur -Ummar o Entrepreneurship is most discuss term now days. What is an entrepreneurship? Why should i do?How i Become an successful entrepreneur. If you Love what you do & have an idea + skill but want to implement your vision and develop the product/service for long-term success then this guide will help you through process.

Identify yourself .An entrepreneur must have the have a clear vision in mind. How you implement that will determine success.

As far as I know myself  I consider Myself a “technopreneur.”

“TECHNOPRENEUR”(an entrepreneur involved with high technology)Geek :p

I believe that if you want to do something Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.”

 

I  will talk about some pre-steps for entrepreneur and after that i will discuss how to avoid something and them conclude all the discussion.

1.Plan

Somehow  when you have an idea you want to do something some people think planning is not important.The planning process can be very useful in overcoming strategic challenges and opportunities that arise along the way.So if you want to be successful entrepreneur plan you business before going for further

2.Consistent

Stay consistent through whole process don’t give up as in our regions our society thinks he/she is wasting time only but when the final product is all people will use.you have to face many faces becoming an entrepreneur.If you will be consistent you can change your life.A famous Quote is

“If you are still looking for that one person who will change your life, take a look in the mirror.”

3. Test Idea

Test you idea at lower level,Identify problems and fix them rather then implementing at higher level gain some feedback what others say about this.

4.Know Market

Ask questions, do research and gain experience to help you learn your market , including the key suppliers, distributors, competitors and customers.investigate flaws in current product and make your product better than competitors.

5.Look for an investor

After all your planning and idea you need an healthy investment for implementing your idea .You need a healthy capital for your startup.Look for a investor,show you plan elaborate your idea for future success.prepare slides so you can do more better than oral presentation.For more information about how to get funded you can refer here a very nice article on

propakisatni (http://propakistani.pk/2015/06/30/how-do-you-get-your-startup-funded/)

6.Build your “A team”

A famous saying is that “If you want to go fast go alone and if you want to go far go with team”.Finding the skill sets and attitudes that support you and the brand you want to promote.Include peoples from outside the company for the people you rely on.

———————————————————————————————————————————After Reading an article on entrepreneur.com.I finally decided to add more words to my article ask yourself these questions & & obviously answer with”Yes”. 

Entrepreneur -Ummar

**These Questions are originally posted on entrepreneur.com

1. Can you afford financial,risk?

You need to understand the big financial risk associated with starting a business. Your idea may flop, you may be unable to pay yourself for a long period of time and there is always the possibility of losing it all.

If you already have a stack of financial obligations, start your business on the side. That scenario may not be ideal, but it’s still possible to find success this way. If you don’t have those obligations, and you fully believe in your idea, then go all-in.

2. Do you have a strong support system?

If you decide to start a business, the road is going to be filled with bumps and intersections, each with multiple options; you will have questions, lots of them. It’s important to surround yourself with a support system that will be there to help you solve problems, seek answers and be available when you just need to vent.

Having family, friends, mentors and industry connections to turn to will greatly increase the odds of your business being successful. The moral support alone is priceless. Keep the doubters away. They are toxic and need to be avoided if you desire success.

3. If you keep getting knocked down (and you will), are you going to keep getting back up for more?

You are going to get knocked down — most likely several times. There is also the possibility of making a wrong decision that causes you to fall flat on your face. If you are expecting to hit a home run the first time you go up to bat, you may as well not even play this game. You’re going to strike out. You’re going to become frustrated.

What differentiates the entrepreneurs that quit from the ones that go on to experience success is the latter group’s tenacity — their willingness to keep taking devastating punches and their willingness to keep getting back up for more.

4. Can you remain motivated, even without personal luxuries and conveniences?

Could you remain 100 percent motivated while sleeping on the floor and eating mac and cheese or Ramen noodles?

“Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day of your life.”

You will never get bored

If not, entrepreneurship may not be for you. It’s often the personal sacrifices that make the biggest difference. Would you sell your car and take public transportation to your office if that meant being able to invest more money into your business? Would you sell your house and move into a small apartment if that meant being able to grow your business faster?

5. Do you understand that your work/life balance will be extremely unbalanced in the beginning?

Most of your time will need to be allocated to your business in the beginning. You will see your friends and family less and miss out on a lot of the little things you used to do — like getting together for beers after work on a Friday and taking weekend trips. Instead, you’ll have long nights at the office and work-filled weekends.

You have to be willing to put in the time and effort in the beginning. When you start a business, everything is on your shoulders. It’s an enormous amount of pressure that some can’t handle. Over time you will be able to create a healthier work/life balance, but understand that it will be very unbalanced in the early years.

6. Can you envision your success?

You need to wake up envisioning your success. You need to have that picture engraved in your head. You need to dream about it when you go to sleep.

So, have you answered “yes” yet?

Skills vs. connections: Which is Important

Writing this post because couple of thoughts in my mind with people sayings.I will share my own opinion because i own my business( a small one but something i really have).At some time i thought skill is very very important when i only got skill with no public dealing and connections and obviously when no one knows you you can’t show your skills but from time to time when i jumped in business world i learned that connection is also very important for example a ignorant  person will do something bigger than a skilled person if he/she have more than one connection from both side buyer,seller or engineer and investor in case of some project.connection_photo_challenge-e1436376293351

The question skill vs connections originally raised on quora let’s see which is important.

The old saying that “it’s not what you know but who you know” is so entrenched that we don’t question the premise. Undoubtedly, who you know has been important throughout history,

For most of history, knowing the right people was crucial if you wanted cash and cache.

In a Harvard Business Review article entitled “How to Build Your Network,” Brian Uzzi and Shannon Dunlap contend: “Networks determine which ideas become breakthroughs, which new drugs are prescribed, which farmers cultivate pest-resistant crops and which R&D engineers make the most high-impact discoveries.” They cite the 1998 work of University of Pennsylvania sociologist Randall Collins, who showed that breakthroughs from icons such as Freud, Picasso, Watson, Crick and Pythagoras were the consequence of a particular type of personal network that prompted exceptional individual creativity.

But with tools such as LinkedIn and Facebook, the ability to network is becoming more democratized. If before it was difficult to ferret out the perfect contact, today finding a right geek  in USA or the genetic researcher in Pakistan is as easy as a Google search. And social media has made it even easier to connect with that person. As for capital, today it is relatively plentiful and accessible, and it is easier than ever to get access to people who have it (accessing capital can be as easy as sending an email).

Information, too, has been democratized. It used to be that if you wanted to get access to cutting-edge ideas in technology, you needed an invitation to an exclusive conference like TED(TED is a global set of conferences run by the private non-profit Sapling Foundation, under the slogan “Ideas Worth Spreading”.), or to attend a university like MIT. Today, TED lectures and MIT courses are offered for free online. The only barrier to most of the world’s best information is knowing English. Because it is so accessible, public information offers a less competitive advantage than it did previously.

Given our hyper-connected world, could it be that who you know, while still important, matters a little less than it did in the past.

Kurt Vonnegut said in Breakfast for Champions, “New knowledge is the most valuable commodity on Earth. The more truth we have to work with, the richer we become.”

In today’s world, if you know something really compelling, you will be sought out — and sought out directly. I will follow the World Wide Web equivalent of the Yellow Brick Road to come to you. In the past, the people with connections were gatekeepers who controlled access to the elite circle and got paid handsomely for it. Today, people who invent interesting things (the true What-You-Know people) will reap many more rewards than the brokers who make introductions.

Even professions such as banking and law are becoming more specialized. The lawyer who understands the intricate tax implications of U.S.-Brazil joint ventures is now much more valuable than the generalist lawyer who introduces you to that person.

 

I’m not saying your network isn’t important – it will just be less important than it has been in the past.  Even the Wizard of Oz was looking to network: just before he leaves the Emerald City he tells Dorothy that he is off “to confer, converse and otherwise hobnob with my brother wizards.”

In the new world of abundant capital, easy access to information and people with knowledge, it’s what you know rather than who you know.

 

Conclusion is that both are very important if you want to live a successful life and wanted things can be done in good manners.You can do you some search on WWW to find right people of your choice these days it is much more easier than history we have professional network like linkedin and also social networks like facebook,twitter,behance & many more.
