Telecoms News Bites

- In an interview with a German Broadcaster, the European Commissioner for Industry has said that the European Commission is pushing mobile phone manufacturers to come up a universal charger for all mobile phones. The idea is that chargers can be transferred between phones when users upgrade, so they won't all be thrown into landfill (and it would also be cheaper for us users).

- BT has signed a three-year managed services telepresence contract with SWIFT - the financial messaging provider for more than 8,600 institutions. Under the contract BT will provide its Unified Communications Video solution which connects offices across Europe, the USA and Asia, including five Cisco TelePresence units connected via SWIFT’s own backbone. SWIFT's CFO quoted reduced carbon emissions as one reason for the move (along with efficiency and cost control).
