Covad Investment

June 1, 2005

I received this request about Covad today. This was in response to recent article. I feel like the Jim Cramer of VoIP Here is the question and answer:

Question:

Mr. Tehrani,

I just finished reading you article, “Best VoIP Investments of 2005“ (published in February 2005) and noticed you didn’t make mention of COVAD Communications. The article seemed to focus more on smaller companies that were marketing specific, niche-type capabilities, as well as peer-to-peer technology, and perhaps that’s why COVAD was not mentioned.





WiFi in Church

June 1, 2005

BT may have WiFi enabled the first church – well at least the first one I have heard of. The church is in Wales and the Reverend Keith Kimber at St John’s Rectory Church in Cardiff said, “The church has to move with the times and I wanted to make St John's a sanctuary for everyone, including business people with laptops and mobiles." He continued, "I have no problem with people quietly sending an email or surfing the Internet in church, as long as they respect the church." I am pretty impressed by this whole concept of Internet access in houses of worship. What is next? Perhaps bibles and Korans will be read electronically?

Digicel Points

June 1, 2005

I was in Aruba last year and noticed Digicel was the leading (only?) provider on the island. Digicel puts out a steady stream of releases and seems pretty forward thinking. As a monopoly provider you would think hey would sit back and count money. This doesn’t seem to be the case.

JibJab Budweiser

May 30, 2005

I received this comment (see below) on a past JibJab post I made a while ago. Apparently the blogger community is up in arms about JibJab selling out to Budweiser. Apparently JibJab promised not to.

My take? So they did.

LSI Logic

May 27, 2005

I recently had a chance to interview Ramesh Bhimarao the VoIP product Line Manager at LSI Logic on the future of VoIP development. LSI Logic is a leader in VoIP processors for wireless and wired applications and their products form the foundation of many of the next generation VoIP killer devices I am looking forward to seeing.

What trends are you seeing in VoIP development?

Voice over WiFi and VoIP integration with CPE devices such as routers and broadband modems are the definite trends we are seeing in the marketplace.

Is 2005 the best year for VoIP? 2006, etc?

Deployment will accelerate from now until 2008.
