Earl-Bird Deadline Approaching

May 2, 2005

I am blown away by the quality of attendees signing up for Speech-Word. Amazingly, it is not just call centers and OEMs but major service providers as well. I suppose these providers are looking to add speech to their customer support departments as well as using speech as a differentiator in their operations. Either way, the show should be very exciting. As I mentioned recently, people in the industry tell me frequently that if this is the year of VoIP, next year will be the year of speech.

NetScout

May 1, 2005

I recently met with a company called NetScout that has some extremely useful network monitoring tools for the world of VoIP. By placing passive probes on the network, they are able to gather data flows and summarize the results in a database for you to analyze as needed. The company tells me they consider their flow recorder as the TiVo for your network. You can imagine how much storage you would need to really have a TiVo on your network -- they tell me their recorder can hold 40 terabytes.

The system can record calls, let you know what happened on your network at 2:00 AM last night, etc.

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.
