John Chambers

June 19, 2007

John Chambers the CEO of Cisco is getting ready to speak here in Chicago and John is generally one of the more dynamic speakers the industry has. Surprisingly, I haven’t heard John speak as often as I like as I seem to always have a scheduling conflict. at events he speaks at. I heard a bit of his talk at Interop and it was great. Today, I am not sure what to expect but think telepresence will be part of the message.

PhoneGnome

June 19, 2007

Is PhoneGnome from Televolution the ultimate CLEC 2.0 Enabler?   We know the story all too well. Thousands of CLECs backed by the venture capital market flooded the telecom space in the hopes of all becoming the next AT&T. The goal back in the late nineties was to roll out fiber as fast as possible with no regard for getting any customers.   If you remember, at the time, the stock market didn’t even value profit… It was all about eyeballs, miles of fiber and potential for future profit. Profit was an “evil” word as it allowed markets to place a valuation on your company.

Skype Trunking

VoSKY Technologies Enables Skype Trunking and More

Many companies are using Skype in their business but generally speaking these are Skype islands which do not interconnect with the plethora of telephony equipment in the organization. For example the ACD is an integral part of many an enterprise yet native Skype does not have access to such niceties. For example, there is no centralized auto attendant on Skype calls coming into an enterprise.   A few years back when there was talk of eBay purchasing Skype and many critics who said eBay spent too much on the VoIP software company, I countered by saying Skype is one of the world’s largest and still fastest-growing telephone companies. This idea still holds true and the one thing most every pundit forgot to mention is the Skype opportunity in business.   There is a tremendous SMB and enterprise market for Skype to exploit by offering its network for the benefit of businesses everywhere.   At a keynote speech at Internet Telephony Conference & Expo in 2005, Skype CEO Niklas Zennstrom told the world for the first time that Skype is doing very well in the business world.

Communigate Unified Communications

June 6, 2007

I just recently demoed a complete unified communications platform based on Flash and Flex2 and all I can say is wow. Pronto! Is a complete communications media center with unified communications built-in. The application has a great user interface that is faster than AJAX technology which is typically powering the latest web 2.0 applications like Google maps.   Another benefit of Flash is the system is more secure.

Although my home may look very neat and organized, it is in fact a an absolute mess. I am not talking about the normal objects which create mess -- paper and clothes; I am talking about devices.   I have gadgets and wireless headsets of all types laying around. I have a USB hard disk, multiple laptops, an iMac, a phone which plays music, two phones which take photos and videos and myriad other devices which do different things. I have a Nokia N800 web tablet to browse the web from the couch and finally I have files, files everywhere.   My (electronic) home life is frankly a mess.
