As Nortel falls, AudioCodes rises

For me today begins with a bit of nostalgia. As I drove into work, I learned that Nortel announced this morning that it was filing for bankruptcy protection. This is not completely unexpected, However, just a few weeks ago,...

Gravity, Pork, Apples and Newton...

Okay pork was not part of this original list but it does go well with apples. Over the weekend, I made fried pork chops with a caramelized onion and apple salsa. Grilled shrimp and scallops served with linguini and...

Budgets, Budgets, Budgets

I spent the last few months working on marketing and sales plans for 2009. Every time I think I have something workable, I consider the potential changes to our telecom landscape. Companies like Broadvox see tremendous opportunities to grow....

Red, White and Blew...

The holidays were a blast. My favorite new dish was the heirloom tomatoes with white truffle oil; a bit extravagant for recipes on this blog though. RED: Yesterday was southern fried chicken with mac and cheese.  I grew up...

Chili and Choice

Christmas was a cacophony of foods, sounds and sights. However, most of it is based on traditional elements, ham, turkey, greens, pies, etc. When I married my wife I was introduced to a new tradition, chili on Christmas Eve. ...

The Cheese Soufflé wins...Ethernet and Embedded VoIP

It's the holidays and cold in Dallas. I fixed a bunch of great stuff but decided to give you one of my favorite non-original recipes, Alton Brown's Cheese Soufflé. "But", you ask, "what was in the running?". Over the...

The end of Yin and Yang?

I have been speculating that the new administration may be good for us ITSPs as we compete for business in 2009. Looking at key members of the transition team such as Susan Crawford, a professor at the University of...

French Onion Something and Enhanced Local Numbers...

Mondays are the day for food but yesterday I made something startlingly good and very simple. I will not be providing a recipe, as that takes time and, in my case, advance notice. I normally cook without a recipe...

SIP Trunking Cost Savings

Broadvox has claimed that it has saved 70% for some of the businesses that have switched from POTS/TDM to SIP Trunking. Earlier this week I read a column that questioned that amount of savings. They focused on the difference...

It's the Opportunity, Stupid.

Yesterday, while working on a press release I reviewed a quote written for me. (Having the partner write the quote is usually a quick way to learn their priority for the release.) As I read the quote, I initially...

Risotto and All-in-One PBXs

Interesting weekend for food. I made pork chops with a dill mustard sauce and cherry tomatoes, and grilled lamb chops with creamy Asparagus and Peas Risotto. I like to add vegetables to my entrées and pastas. It keeps me...

IP PBXs for SMBs and IT

Premise based IP PBXs offer many benefits to SMBs over hosted solutions. As this is not a discussion on hosted PBXs, I'll cover that subject a later day. The most important parameter is to purchase a system that fits...

1000 degrees and counting...

I took the infrared thermometer gun home over the Thanksgiving holiday. Remember, Jeff said "no", but I heard "later". It is a cool device. First, I tested my stovetop burners, a whopping 960O. Next, I tested boiling water to...

The Final Card...

Often times I am asked for my cell phone number when traveling or if someone learns, I will not be in the office. They are quite surprised when I tell them I don't know the number. "How can anyone...

ROI, TCO and Bread

With the economy as it is, transitioning existing business customers and prospects to IP communications and SIP Trunking should be easy. However, it is not a no brainer. There is still the questions of whether the existing infrastructure can...

...and who will lead us?

Most of this week I have been thinking about what actions or policies of the President-Elect's administration will influence the business strategy of Broadvox and other ITSPs. It appears that from a policy standpoint, I am mostly in agreement...

USF and Net Neutrality

Today is supposed to be just on policy but my heart skipped a beat when I saw an infrared temperature gun at the office. Now what foodie isn't dying to know how hot the burners get or at what...
