More VoIP URLs

April 8, 2005

Here are some recent VoIP URLs that are interesting. The following service provider is buying up domains such as brazilvoipcalling.com, australiavoipcalling.com, argentinavoipcalling.com, etc.

Primus Telecommunications
25 Bridge St.
Red Bank, New Jersey
United States





I didn’t think it possible but the pace of URLs being registered with the word VoIP in them is still accelerating.

Mike Ross Leaves Aculab

April 8, 2005

No sooner did I break the news that Howard Bubb was leaving Dialogic – I just found out that Mike Ross left Aculab a few days ago. Mike was another major player in the DSP resource board space. Mike worked as VP of Sales at Dialogic in the 1980s and was instrumental in their success.

He later left to found Rhetorex, a Dialogic competitor. Under his management Rhetorex grew to be a major force in the DSP resource board space.

Ditech Communications

April 8, 2005


Ditech Communications is a veteran in the telecom space and they have some high-tech solutions to many carrier problems. I spent some time discussing their VoIP solutions and their strategy boils down to making VoIP sound better. They are able to cancel acoustic echo (the noise from the microphone reflection), background noise and hybrid echo (the echo that results from converting 4 lines of voice into two) for example.

They are also very focused on helping carriers with VoIP peering. In the VoIP space, different carriers use different formats to carry their voice packets.

Going Back To NYC

April 7, 2005

I am taking a red eye flight back home and look forward to getting to work. I met with a number of VoIP companies and they all seem to be doing well. I heard that Q1 was a bit slow in the enterprise VoIP space for some reason but there are a record number of deals on the table for many companies. In all I saw companies selling to OEMs, enterprise customers and service providers.

Bubb Leaves Intel

April 6, 2005

An industry Icon, Howard Bubb is stepping down from Intel. Bubb was the head of Dialogic during the roaring days of computer telephony/CTI where the market grew at an astronomical rate. Those of you at industry events remember Bubb speaking at events hosted by the likes of Harry Newton... In fact there was even a Howard Bubb show at suc events.

Dialogic was a leader in DSP resource boards and although Natural Microsystems really discovered the VoIP gateway market before Dialogic, Bubb's company powered back to lead the space and soon thereafter sold to Intel.

Many in the industry complained that Dialogic which sold for under a billion dollars to Intel was undervalued.
