If you like VoIP and Star Trek do I have a blog entry for you. TMCnet’s Tom Keating writes up (turn down your speakers) what is happening with the shut down of SunRocket. Somehow he gets numerous Star Trek references...

VoIP News July 24, 2007

Recent news in the IP communications space has centered on SunRocket replacements from companies like Nuvio and OneSuite. At least in the case of OneSuite, I haven’t even heard of them and their PR/marketing is nonexistent… At least to me....

SunRocket Switch to Packet8

Yesterday I blogged about the SunRocket bankruptcy and I mentioned how although pure-play VoIP is not easy, a company like 8x8/Packet8 is doing a good job. Today I came across an article on TMCnet discussing how Packet8 is the preferred...

SunRocket Bankrupt

I am not really so surprised by the SunRocket bankruptcy news. The company was an innovator and had some great ideas early on but for the last few years they were extremely quiet. There was little press outreach and there...

Vonage Voicemail Transcription

At CTIA a few weeks back I heard Vonage will offer a voicemail transcribing service soon but I was sworn to secrecy. As you may know I have been writing about voicemail transcription a great deal lately. I thought I...

More on The VoIP Patent Mess

Vonage Has No Workaround

Apparently the Verizon patents are sufficiently broad as to not allow Vonage to have a workaround. This according to the USA Today. I was wondering myself how a workaround could take place on these patents as they seem to cover...

Flaming Cringely

I grew up reading Robert X. Cringely so it is challenging for me to say anything negative about this witty writer who once graced the pages of InfoWorld. In the interest of objectivity however it is worth pointing out...

Jeffrey Citron will replace Michael Schneider as CEO of Vonage. It seems Wall Street is happy with this move as the stock price has increased somewhat on this news.   In addition the company has instituted a hiring freeze and...

MobileCierge

At some point the secretary became the executive assistant and then a strange thing happened – there seemed to be less of these assistants. It seems executives started doing more and more of their own “secretarial work” such as scheduling...

Nice Systems

In the wake of the negative VoIP investing news due to the recent Verizon/Vonage court battle, it is great to see BusinessWeek highlighting Nice Systems as a positive investment opportunity precisely because of the migration to VoIP. In addition it...

VoIP Patent Mess

Daniel Berninger at GigaOM has a good summary of the VoIP patent mess worth reading. Dan thinks the Verizon patents are overly broad and goes on to explain more about the future of patents. Unfortunately he also points out that...
