TelecomNext and Telecom 05

October 30, 2005

Calysto Communications and Public Relations is a PR company that has perhaps the most customers in the VoIP space and they have a great team of PR people. Their clients are certainly almost all on the telecom "A" list. Since they attend a lot of shows it is worth listening to what they say when they evaluate one show or another. This is what they had to say about the USTA Telecom 05 and TelecomNext shows.

Susan Kennedy Transcript

October 30, 2005

Here is the text of Commissioner Susan Kennedy’s speech at Internet Telephony Conference & Expo from last week in Los Angeles. She did an outstanding job and had the audience laughing at 8:00 am. This is no easy feat and she backed up an amazingly charismatic presentation with content that was second to none. If there is one theme I kept hearing throughout the show it was that regulators have an amazing challenge in a world where consumers use VoIP to communicate.

In 1995-2000 the industry was convinced that unified messaging was going to immediately sweep the corporate desktop. The whole idea of uniting fax, voicemail and e-mail together made too much sense to not happen quickly. Sometimes logic and what you think is common sense just doesn't happen and now we live in a world where a $10/month VoIP service provider can give you unified messaging and most enterprise users still don't have it.

My take? The advent of VoIP service providers will make corporate executives wonder why they can't have the flexibility of UM in the office yet their $10/month service offers it.

Liberty Bell Telecom Picks VoX

October 10, 2005

VoX Communications is doing very well in the wholesale VoIP market. I think the dual strategy of wholesale/retail is very smart. Disclaimer: I’m a shareholder of eLEC. Still the combination of wholesale and retail means you can make more money without the need for doubling equipment and staffing cost.

SugarCRM Contest

October 8, 2005

One of the more amazing aspects of open source software is the open source community. SugarCRM recently announced the 100th extension to its Sugar Suite open source CRM platform as well as a contest for developers with prizes totaling $2,500 in cash and prizes.

Over 2,000 developers have joined SugarForge.org in the last 14 months. This is quite an accomplishment.

In any open source project there is always a handful of developers that do most of the work.
