SIP

ITEXPO Plug

January 10, 2006

Here is an informational e-mail we are about to send out. I think it is blogworthy because so many people have been e-mailing me with questions answered by this e-mail. The energy level in the VoIP space is incredible and I can’t wait to host this show in sunny Florida. Interestingly it isn’t as cold as it normally is in the northeast at the moment which means you probably can still get good prices on plane tickets to attend the show.

One would imagine that in two weeks it will become much colder in the midwest and on the east coast and you could conceivably be enjoying the sun in Florida on your way to ITEXPO while simultaneously escaping the frigid temperatures that are bound to hit us sooner or later.

Rich: Where is the SIP market headed?

Alan: The SIP market is undoubtedly headed for a bright future, having gone well beyond a ‘heralding of the dawn’ phase. The broad industry commentary on protocols for use in next-generation networks is focused almost exclusively on SIP.

Deploying New Services

January 4, 2006

I received this article recently from Lucent. It is an article about Lucent services but it nevertheless is worthy of reading as it details some next generation services we will be seeing service providers deploy in the future. For example I like the idea of video greetings that can be sent via “virtual characters.”

I also like the idea of celebrity greetings and certainly these are being rolled out slowly but surely. I think many people would love a Donald Trump greeting that says “Thanks for calling… To avoid getting fired leave a detailed message after the tone.”

There is more to the article but if you are intrigued so far, give it a read and feel free to leave your comments at the bottom.

68 Countries Register For ITEXPO

January 4, 2006

I just got word that people from over 68 countries will be attending Internet Telephony Conference & Expo. VoIP growth is really taking off and this is such a worldwide phenomenon that I am not surprised to see such large international registration. I just can’t wait for this event which I have dubbed the UN of VoIP in the past.

As I drove into work today on sheets of dangerous and well camouflaged black ice, my thermometer said 28 degrees. I am just 20 days away from going down to sunny Florida for ITEXPO.

Vonage Chooses Sonus

January 4, 2006

I still can’t stop thinking about how many people in the year 2002 when the telecom market was in a perilous time told me that service providers all buy Lucent. Sure they will trial anything and everything else but when they deploy they go with Lucent.

How wrong these people were. Companies like Sonus are doing a great job a getting service providers – new and incumbent, to choose their solutions. Vonage has already deployed Sonus solutions in LA and New York… Now they will deploy Sonus around the country and world to help support their meteoric growth.

The specific products Vonage has and will continue to deploy from Sonus are the GSX9000, PSX Call Routing Server, SGX Signaling Gateway, and the Sonus Insight Management System.
