At the end of 2015, I remember saying that it had been a very special year for Teldat, as we celebrated our company’s 30th Anniversary. How from a simple technological startup we had become one of the European market leaders in advanced corporate communication platforms. However, 2016 has been as if our 31st year in business, has meant the opening of a totally new era, and indeed it has been so, with Teldat’s launch of SD-WAN!
2015 has been a very special year for Teldat. The year in which we have celebrated our company’s 30th Anniversary, since its start up to what it is today, becoming the European technology leader in advanced communication platforms for corporate environments.
During these thirty years we have participated in the amazing technological evolution of communications. Although every year seems to have key points which are reached, perhaps this year has been very important. Huge steps have been taken in important markets such as the German market, in the ISDN shutdown and convergence to Full IP and in this convergence to IP Teldat has become a benchmark with its technology in main Carriers. We have also participated with our partners in this technological transformation by attending events such as The Broadband World Forum in London.
However, convergence to Full IP, has not been the only important change in the technological evolution during 2015. There have been many more, such as the development of smart grids throughout the Electricity market, which has been huge. We are not only led to think this of smart grids due to our daily activity within this market, but also our presence at the EUTC 2015 in Dublin was extremely satisfying.
To end this year we want to thank all of our readers for their loyalty and interest, as well as welcoming all new followers who have joined our communication channels.
We especially want to wish everyone -those of you who read us occasionally and all of our customers and friends- a very merry Christmas, and may 2016 be as interesting for you as this year 2015 has been for us.
In the run up to the last third of 2015, Teldat would like to take this opportunity to write a few words to first of all, welcome back those who may have taken a mid-year break lately and are getting back to their day to day activity. Moreover, this moment of time is also a perfect opportunity to look into what is left from now until the end of 2015.
We have commented on various occasions before, that 2015 is being a very special year. As far as Teldat is concerned, not only because it is our 30th anniversary, but also because coincidently, it is the period in which we would see the successful accomplishments of many planned investments and projects, to offer differentiation and value added for all those related to Teldat. To date we have been seeing these fulfillments.
However, 2015 has still not finished by no means. The last four months are pending for which we all need to maintain, or even increase that “strength, enthusiasm and ambitiousness” that our introductory post to the year indicated. We will need these characteristics to make sure that we all accomplish our goals and build on what has been achieved to date.
Of course, from the perspective of our blog we will continue to publish posts from our bloggers to add to the differentiation and added value that we mentioned above.
All the best from now until the end of 2015!
The first commercial internet domain name was registered on the 16th March, 1985: Symbology.com. It belonged to a computer manufacturer created from a division of the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at MIT that specialized in making LISP machines. To put things into perspective, Microsoft registered its domain name in 1993 and America Online, the largest Internet service provider at the time, did so in 1995, the same year as Amazon.
Teldat, which celebrated its 30th anniversary this year, was founded on the 5th May, 1985, only a few weeks after the first domain name was registered. This is no coincidence, mind you, because the history of Teldat is tied to the Internet and the communications networks. Its purpose was to seek the most efficient way of ensuring network access to all of those who already understood this to be the way forward. That the future was to be found in the enormous opportunities opening up in terms of the sharing of information, knowledge and work. That future that we have achieved 30 years later with a mixture of humility, hard work and perseverance.
These past few days we have celebrated an anniversary that, for us, is very important because our present situation predicts a promising future. Over the past 30 years, we have become a powerful multinational group present in five continents, designing from our offices in Madrid and Nuremberg, for our customers: major companies, institutions and operators worldwide. We have learnt valuable lessons from all of our customers. And each of them have given us something to be thankful for. Their trust and support have helped us get to where we are today. These have been exciting years, with extremely rapid developments in which we’ve witnessed the disappearance of many of the companies that were with us from the outset, like the visionary Symbology, the first to register an Internet .com domain name.
Our task now is to make that impending future a reality once more, just as we did in 1985. We have always considered the technological design process to be an art form, so for us this is our art. And if cutting-edge art is expressed in the form of new materials, bold approaches and innovative ways of sharing beauty, for Teldat, cutting-edge technology starts with information sharing, since this is the engine that drives the knowledge-based society in which we live today. This is exactly Teldat’s goal: to create, for the knowledge-based society and its members, the most technologically advanced platforms allowing for more efficient communication between companies and their users.
Thirty years in which we have been participants in the amazing technological evolution of communications, from the first modems to the latest 4G products. Thirty years that have led us from our very first small office (similar to some famous garage start-ups) to four continents, competing with global leaders. Thirty years that we have shared with our team, suppliers and customers, with whom we also hope to share the celebration of such a special birthday.
It will also be an important year because it’s the year in which we will see the successful accomplishment of many projects, investments and initiatives, which we have been working on during these last few years, and especially in 2014. Moreover, also because if the forecasts are reached, this year should be better than previous years. Not only for us, but for everyone and this will be very good news.
That’s why we commence 2015 with strength, enthusiasm and ambitiousness. In fact nothing very different from what we have always done at the beginning of each year, during the last thirty…
