May 27th Communications and Technology Podcast

May 27, 2005

Lots of great stuff in the latest communications and technology podcast. I had to bow out but am upset that I did as this one seemed quite good. Hopefully I can participate in next week’s edition.

Cisco Galileo

Announced at Speech-World is Galileo from Cisco is a really cool product that allows speech access to e-mail and calendaring. For those of you that remember Wildfire, it is a similar concept but having the Cisco brand behind it should allow it to be more widely purchased and deployed.



Iberian Lynx

With all the deaths of humans in the world I sometimes find it hard to worry about animals. Ethically I am torn to donating to human causes before animal ones. Still, I am a nature lover. I am certainly not someone you would consider green but I love all sorts of animals from fish to big cats.

Dave Hattey and SIPquest

May 27, 2005

Dave Hattey who has done a great job leading 3COM’s VoIP initiatives for years – and has spoken at TMC events in the past, has made the switch to SIPquest. The two companies are partners so they were familiar with each other before Hattey moved. I am not sure who may be taking his spot but Brian Allain just joined 3COM and could be the person who fills Hattey’s shoes. Allain has been in VoIP since the mid nineties and launched Avaya’s (Lucent at the time) foray into the IP PBX market .

TelTel Radio

May 27, 2005

Once you have a community of Internet telephony users the next step is to see what sorts of interesting things you can do with them like offer music and other audio content. TelTel, has done just this with their network of one million users – which they claim is the largest worldwide community of SIP p2p users. Similar to Skype, the company has software that works in a p2p fashion but where the two differ is that TelTel is SIP compatible meaning it is easily used with dozens if not hundreds of devices and third-party software endpoints.

Any media content provider can become a TelTel partner if they support SIP. Obviously there is huge competition from companies like the Microsoft and their Media Player, Real Networks and Apple QuickTime. But where this service can get interesting is in SIP device support allowing streaming to any device on the Net that is SIP compatible.

Will SIP become a conduit for audio programming?

Taiwan and the Virtual Girlfriend

May 26, 2005

What to do when your mistress is busy? Get out your mobile virtual girlfriend. I often write about how Asia is so far ahead of the US in telecom and broadband technology -- I have finally found something I am glad Taiwan has before us. We can thank 3G technology -- which the US doesn't have, for making this service available.

Save Municipal Wireless

May 26, 2005

I just came upon this site savemuniwireless.org that focuses on furthering municipal wireless networks. There are lots of entries and analysis. The point of the site is to allow states/cities/municipalities to have their own wireless networks. As you may know LECs are fighting this trend as they consider states offering WiFi service -- often for free, as a competitive threat.

Heading Back From Speech-World

May 26, 2005

I am heading back today and am on an American flight bound for NY at the moment (I am looking forward to the day that we have high-speed internet on flights). The show went well. Exhibitors told me the quality of attendees was great and the quantity was good for a first-time event. Last night was the 20th annual Top 50 award where we celebrate the largest outsourcers in the world.
