Centillium Communications

April 30, 2005

One of the brightest people in the VoIP business has to be Faraj Aalaei the CEO of Centillium Communications, a leading silicon supplier to box makers and service providers worldwide. Aali is a Bell Labs alumni and isn't bashful to tell me that his company is the only public corporation to be focusing on these areas. The company's SOC or system on a Chip design lends itself well to high density apps. For example the Entropia III platform allows 1,000 channels to be carried on a single chip.

In case you aren't aware, Japan is far ahead of the US in VoIP deployment and this market is dominated by Centillium's products.

Zultys MX30

April 30, 2005

I recently had a chance to meet with execs at Zultys in Silicon Valley to see what they are up to. This is a company that launched an IP PBX a few years ago while the rest of the market was hiding in the shadows of post-bubble bursting depression, Zultys decided to throw their hat in the ring at what seems to have been an ideal time. The company is now selling IP PBXs internationally and growing quickly in the US, Asia and other parts of the world. One part of the conversation that struck me was when I heard that Zultys is back in the IP phone business.

SERoutlookAccess

April 29, 2005

Probably the best product around that no one knows about is SERoutlookAccess. I love this handy utility but have a few caveats about it. Let’s start off by saying I have a mailbox on a busy server with about 500,000 e-mails on it and I receive up to or more than 1,000 e-mails daily. I live in Outlook so I need a powerful search utility.

I used LookOut for over a year and it was very helpful.
