Pancakes and Panned

Do You Want SIP Trunks with That?

Apparently, since the merger of Broadvox and Cypress Communications, I have written more blogs on Unified Communications than SIP Trunking. I was a bit surprised but shouldn’t have been. Unified Communications (UC) does not require SIP Trunking. In addition to...

Business Ready VoIP: Cable vs. Wireline

I have been down on cable for months as a “business ready” connection. The fluctuating quality of cable services and the lack of predictability of the upload and downloads speeds made using a cable service for business very risky. That’s...

Truly Converged Access...

Cooking this weekend took a back seat to celebrating. I did not cook Friday or Saturday. However, do not despair as I developed two exciting new recipes on Sunday. The first was clam chowder using razor clams given to me...

We interrupt this Count

Yesterday, the US Senate defeated an attempt to block the pending Net Neutrality rules. The bill was defeated by a 52-46 vote. This was an important vote since a similar bill to block the implementation of the rules was passed...

Broadband Selection Criteria 2 and 3

Aioli and Broadband, Hundreds of Options

What a weekend! Friday, I deep fried a seasoned turkey breast and made a salad for Gay and a sandwich for me. Deep fried turkey is very different from fried chicken. It doesn’t use flour or batter and the end...

The Risk of BYOB

USF Reform Takes a Big Step Forward

Yesterday the FCC vote unanimously to approve its proposal to reform the Universal Service Fund (USF). While not making the national news this is a big deal. The proposal changes the way we will fund broadband expansion into rural or...

Accelerating Video Adoption

No Surprises Here

Although, I did not expect to speak during COMPTEL, it proved to be an interesting discussion regarding how current telecom trends are impacting merger and acquisition activity. Clearly, M&A activity in telecom cannot be boiled down to a single issue...

Smoked

Friday and Saturday were a bust for cooking. Since we are having some painting done the fumes in the house were too much and we went out to eat both days. However, after sleeping with the windows open and the...

You are Running Out of Cans and String

Last week I read an email subject line regarding the top 10 reasons you should get a new phone system. I am certain the authors or sponsors of gave out some good information. However, I am also certain that they...

Who is Servicing Your Customers?

Segmenting the businesses by small, medium and large has often been a source of disagreement. However, one thing we know to be true. Small businesses are the engine that drives our economy. As such it is worth noting that there...

Dried and True

Although it seems as if I didn’t do much cooking this weekend, when I include all meals, it was pretty busy. The real problem is that I didn’t make anything new. There are times when I am interested in eating...
