Teleo VoIP Splash

February 13, 2005

Teleo is a new VoIP company that wants to bridge the desktop with the tools mobile professionals use today. They will be announcing their strategy at demo this week. According to Peter Sisson, Teleo President & CEO, “Mobile professionals use cell phone, e-mail and web browsers. They shouldn’t have a new VoIP interface as well”.

Grammys

February 13, 2005

If you think society hasn’t been changed forever by the Internet you didn’t see the Grammys tonight. I just witnessed a montage of multitasked songs from Maroon 5 and other bands (I am so unhip, I didn’t know the others). The songs were actually interlaced, meaning a song went on for a minute and then another band started up and another band played in-between the spaces in the other bands singing and so on.

10 years ago everyone would have changed the channel. Today, probably most of the audience was on their laptops or reading or eating or conversing or whatever we all do now since we are so used to getting input from multiple sources at once.

This national ADD is contagious and it is going worldwide.

I’ve known Broadsoft’s Scott Wharton for years and after a good while discussing Broadsoft’s development of sophisticated hosting platforms, our conversations have transitioned from technology and applications to deployment. In the last few weeks for example the following customers were announced by Broadsoft:

Cbeyond, McLeodUSA, iiNET, and XO Communications.

These are some impressive wins. In addition to selling product the company has been busy trying to get the industry to rally around specs to interconnect CPE equipment with hosted services.
