Philippines VoIP

January 19, 2005

So while we're sitting around in the US trying to figure out if VoIP providers need to be regulated, taxed, contribute to the Universal Service Fund, etc... We sometimes forget that other countries are going through similar regulatory debates. Case in point is the Philippines where the debate rages on how to legally define VoIP, etc.

Here is an excerpt of an article discussing the issue:

Empirix, Spirent and Westell

January 19, 2005

The testing market has been very active lately as Empirix the company that makes Hammer test equipment recently purchased CT Labs. Chris Bajorek, the head of CT Labs is well respected and will continue to run the labs according to Steve Gladstone the VP and General Manager of Empirix and is also well-respected in the VoIP testing market. CT Labs was initially tied to CMP's Computer Telephony magazine (thus the name of the labs) and performed their outside reviews. That magazine changed names to Communications Convergence and is no longer being published.

I would say this is a very smart move for Empirix as Chris and his lab have a bunch of strong relationships with vendors such as Genesys Labs and others.

Open Source Telephony With Sangoma's CEO

January 19, 2005

I recently had a chance to interview Sangoma's CEO David Mandelstam... His company makes boards for open source telephony systems. Open source PBXs are all the rage these days so I decided it would be useful to get the perspective on this market from a company that makes its living selling hardware that is intimately tied to Linux telephony. Here is the Interview with David Mandelstan:
