More on The VoIP Patent Mess

April 20, 2007

A number of people in the telecom industry tell me they have looked at the Verizon patents being used against Vonage and they say they have been doing the things that are claimed in the patents before Verizon filed. My sources further claim in some cases there are patents which have been granted to companies which conflict with the patents which Verizon has. Of course this is not unusual but no one has anything to gain from suing Verizon to get the phone company’s patents overturned. They would only do this if they are sued and this won’t happen as Verizon is too smart to sue companies that can overturn their own patents.

Radcom QTrace

April 19, 2007

Networks are converging at breakneck speed and as they do, so does the need to search and troubleshoot calls across multiple sites and networks. According to Avi Zamir, President of Radcom, his company is starting to see the need for converged monitoring tools across VoIP, cellular and IPTV networks.   Service providers are looking for a single management platform in his experience. To solve this problem his company has launched QTrace for mobile network operators. This solution can work on multiple servers if needed and allows operators to analyze all open calls or any subset of calls across the network.   QTrace at it’s heart is a user-friendly central management system.

Jangl

Michael Cerda is the CEO of Jangl. Michael thinks big. Cerda wants his company to be the biggest thing since Skype. In speaking with him you get the feeling he really wants to leave a mark – something huge.   His VoIP 2.0 company Jangl differentiated itself from others by focusing on spaces such as online dating where they provide Match.com subscribers with a bidirectional anonymous phone number for $6.99/month.   While online dating and associated websites are a nice opportunity the people at Jangl realized they couldn’t take over the world in this fashion.

Airlines have frequent flyer programs. Hotels have them. Credit cards have them. I am sure you were wondering why the open source communications community to date has not thought to also have a frequent buyer program.

Voicemail Transcription

April 18, 2007

I am not sure what the category of product is that converts voicemail to e-mail but I suppose voicemail transcription covers it nicely. Recently wrote about SpinVox and how the company converts voicemail to e-mail automatically.   I am in a conference today where I cannot take calls. I did however receive an e-mail just now:   --------------- Daddy. I want Daddy to talk.
