The FCC Will Bother Me

August 3, 2005

If you are a CLEC, the FCC will certainly bother you and that bothering may come sooner than you would like as the Wall Street Journal reports (subscription required) in this excellent article that Chairman Martin, who many people say looks like Harry Potter plans on freeing up the LECs from having to share their networks so they may compete more favorably with the cable companies. The FCC was going to do this eventually. We all knew it was coming. I am just so saddened at the whole incident, I don't know what to do but rant.

Vonage 911

August 2, 2005

Here is the latest E911 news courtesy of Vonage and TCS. What is important about this release is that these two companies are working together to educate the PSAPs who in many cases have old equipment and can benefit from an introduction to IP.

I've written before that if the PSAPs become IP enabled there are a wealth of new life-saving services these offices can take advantage of like the ability to have data sent to the office in case of a 911 call. For example it would be feasible to have medical data instantly uploaded over an IP call when 911 is dialed.

In the case of an alarm, a schematic of a house can be sent with the zone that triggered the alarm. This schematic can be downloaded by the police cruiser on the way to the home.

IP is a true enabler for next-gen emergency services.

Secure VoIP

August 2, 2005

Not all security issues originate from outside the network. A growing number of threats are coming from inside networks. In fact some security analysts have found that there are more successful attacks coming from within than outside your network. Cyber criminals working inside a company can steal the identities of coworkers on a large scale.

Skibare Rants

August 2, 2005

Skibare rants like crazy ┬ (Sunday July 31st Raving on VoIP---Random Thoughts ) page and Andy Abramson seems to agree this is a great post. There is a great deal of truth in the statements made within this post such as:

First, VOIP has not made anyone a dime if they invested in VOIP..........the gateway suppliers, the Network providers, the Optical Cienna's or the Bankrupt Suria Ghouls Network providers trying to KILL EACH other day to day with pricing wars for Bits and Bytes of Data Transport! Sonus, Cienna, Tellabs, ADCT, Carrier Access, Level3, Broadwing, Global Crossing, ATT, the list goes on and on and on and on..........



The definite exceptions here are systems integrators who are selling to enterprises, SMBs and service providers in massive numbers. Think EDS on down.
