The Only Show With a Consumer VoIP Marketing Summit

August 26, 2005

This is part of the ITEXPO: Best VoIP Show In The World series of Blog entries.

There is only one show you need to attend if you work for a service provider and are tying to figure out how to price your products and services effectively. That Is Internet Telephony Conference & Expo.

This Consumer VoIP Marketing Summit was designed with service providers in mind. How on earth are you supposed to price your services in a vacuum?



Best Keynotes in the World

This is part of the ITEXPO: Best VoIP Show In The World series of Blog entries.

No other VoIP show in the world has ever had the level of keynoters that ITEXPO has.

ITEXPO: Best VoIP Show In The world

August 25, 2005

I have been deluged with exhibitors from past Internet Telephony Conference and Expos to start writing about how much superior TMC's ITEXPO is to other events. For the most part I thought it was self-explanatory as we have had 3 sold out exhibit halls in a row and our aisles are always full of people buying and selecting products. Everyone knows that other industry events may have lots of exhibitors but they don’t get the traffic. At least that is what everyone tells me.

Rates Technology and Alcatel

August 25, 2005

In my blog entry on Rates Technology Inc I mentioned Alcatel as in default. Specifically:

After it became impossible to get them covered, RTI recently filed suit for willful patent infringement against Centrepoint Technologies, Inc. for much less money than Mitel and Alcatel (they certainly are a smaller company).

Mitel Networks was sued for $945 Million; Alcatel was sued for $1.155 Billion; and their default is pending in USDC EDNY. Hello Direct, GN Netcom and GN had been sued by RTI for patent infringement, and they recently settled with RTI; the terms are being kept confidential

.

Since that time I have learned the court has vacated the default meaning it is now in the hands of California courts since Alcatel sued Rates Technology Inc. first in California.

Vonage IPO: What It Means For VoIP

August 25, 2005

VoIP companies enjoyed two  surges in the public markets. The first was in the Fall of 1997 when companies like Inter-Tel and Franklin Telecom were VoIP darlings. Inter-Tel who at the time had a service provider offering was one of the few public ways to play what at the time we called IP telephony or Internet telephony.

We then saw public interest leave the VoIP space for a while and then it came back with a vengeance in 1998-2000. The public markets haven’t had too many tech darlings since the ensuing bubble burst though.

Vonage Goes IPO

August 25, 2005

Apparently all the rumors of Vonage being acquired are now dead as an IPO seems likely. I suppose it is still possible for someone to come in at the last second and buy the company. A cable company or international service provider? BellSouth?

American Workers

August 25, 2005

I wrote a blog entry about a Dell call center a while back and I have noticed that people from India keep commenting on it . They hope to use my blog as a way to get hired. The funny thing about many of these e-mails is the grammar. If you are really looking for work you should somehow get your grammar checked before posting things online for the world to see.

But the point is broader than that.

Back From Orlando

August 25, 2005

I had a nice safe trip back to JFK and didn’t get stuck on Delta as I thought – it was Song. Thankfully there was little traffic on the way home. I did run into a few people in the parking lot on the way to my car. One was asking how to get o the monorail and the other was a family trying to get to Hertz. I was useless in both cases.

Song or Delta
