But once again: read it all, ok?
What is telecomHall?
telecomHall is a Telecom & IT Community.
It started more than 10 years ago, with Telecom & IT Articles on Tips, Course and Tools at www.telecomHall.com
Currently with more than 30k users worldwide (you can see live access to the website here: http://live.feedjit.com/live/telecomhall.com/0/)
Hunter* used to be sent only to people that that made a donation, but currently it has a totally new approach: it became OPEN SOURCE (free).
*Hunter is a tool to help in a lot of ways the telecom professional daily work.
Recently, the Community took a new step: the launch of a new FORUM (www.telecomhall.net) to stimulate even more Sharing and Discussions.
And now, the Community are moving again: taking another step towards Telecom &IT users integration all over the World: the use of WhatsApp/Telegram!
telecomHall Groups Methodology
How the telecomHall groups works?
We all know that creating (and maintaining) a WhatsApp/Telegram group is not an easy task. But we also know that it is a great tool to instant communication, and to be in touch with friends/colleagues in the same area.
So we have decided to create a Methodology that allow every Telecom & IT of the World to be in contact.
If you want to participate you are very welcome, but also need to follow the rules.
The steps to become a member is:
Step 1: Visit http://www.telecomhall.net/t/whatsapp-telegram-telecomhall-groups/ and join the 'Gateway' group.
Step 2: Wait until a moderator move you to your Country Group (we ask for a little patience, ok? We're not online everyday, everytime)
Step 3: Once you are in your Country Group, it is recommended to present yourself. A small introduction, with your name and what you do. And most important: follow Group Rules, that will be sent regularly in the group.
Note: the Country Group is not intended to run discussions. We have global groups for discussion!
Step 4: Every time a new Discussion Group is created, it will be shared in the Country Group (that is the reason you need to stay in the Country Group, even if conversations are not happening there; Country Group is the place where Admins will notify you of every new group).
How to invite someone to join WhatsApp/Telegram Group?
If do you want to invite some friends, simply forward this message.
This is the link for anyone to join Gateway group:
Global Groups Advise
Global groups are great, and for sure have its advantages; but has also one big problem: different messages in different times (time zones). It is recommended, when participaSo, i think it is advisable to follow at least one tip, when participating in global groups: Mute group.
Not everyone are every time in the mood (24/7). So, if you're participating in any global group, remeber to MUTE it.
Admins: Country Group Administration
As Admin of your Country Group, you have 2 options:
- You can Add/Remove some colleagues that you think will want to discuss / be in touch;
- Or simply wait for more people come - after they visit the MAIN Invitation Link (by visiting the website).
Note: it is recommended NOT to share the link of your Country Group. Instead, add people manually. The reason is that, once the link is shared, you no longer have control of the group - anyone can join anytime if they click group link.
Admins: Creation of new Discussion Groups
People are demanding more and more Discussion Groups.
It is recommended not to create a lot of groups.
The Subject of each new group is very important:
- A too much "generic" subject (i.e. Telecom) will atract too many people, from too many areas, and disussions will not to please everyone.
- A too much "specific: subject (ie Nokia Feature "XYZ") will atract few people.
How many Discussion Groups out here?
So far we have 7 groups (Telegram and WhatsApp)
You will receive an update with the links to Join
WhatsApp: What happens when a group reach limitation (256 people)?
We create a second group. For example, we already have 'LTE Optimization 2' (LTE Optimization reached 256 members)
The intention is allow everyone to participate.
SO, here is an important rule: if you participate in a group (i.e. LTE Optimization), please do not join group 2,3... (i.e. LTE Optimization 2).
If you do so, you will be removed.
I still have a question, or a suggestion. What can i do?
If you have some question, suggestion simply join our global informal group:

We're starting something big - keep all telecom professionals in contact, and things are not easy to start.
But we believe together we can.
In the future, we can, also together define some better ways to improve sharing and communication among professionals in our area.
How many Country Groups are there?
Discussions are running in dozens of Country Groups (more than 60).
Each Country has at least one moderator.
Some Country Group has more than 200 members, some have only one or few members.
