Practicing Safe SIP

From time to time I do multi-part blogs to describe more complicated issues. Last month the Broadvox marketing team and I decided to consolidate a few of the blogs into an article which was published in Telecom Reseller. That article...

Welcome to Telecom Prairie

In 1984 I was part of a small group of people that opened the Ericsson US offices in Richardson, Texas. At that time no one knew how many telecom related firms would eventually locate themselves in what became Telecom Prairie...

A Bold and Rich Choice

This was another weekend where I knew the recipe of the week on Friday. We had some finger foods on both Saturday and Sunday for watching the football games. Although, my wife and I enjoyed every bite of Sunday’s finger...

ReVeal

I didn’t cook this weekend until Sunday. And deciding what was the recipe of the week was a bit difficult as a result. I made Osso Buco with roasted potatoes, cabbage and cheesy rolls. Each was delicious. The osso buco...

The Value of the VAR

It is not unusual for a VAR to ask our channel managers how to improve their sales of SIP. However, it is the wrong the question. The VAR should never lead with SIP. The Broadvox VAR Partner Program was established...

Up in Smoke, the Telephone Book

What a weekend! I think I cooked the entire time. Loved it! With apple wood, I smoked two chickens, a turkey, brats (bratwursts) and bacon on Saturday. I also make chicken liver paté, and macaroni and asiago cheese. On Sunday,...

What is the best IP PBX?

Now that’s a loaded question for a carrier. The most typical answer is it depends upon factors specific to your business and infrastructure. I prefer to give an answer that moves away from the specific IP PBX comparisons to the...

Povitica, Latkes and IBM

Going into the weekend I had no idea as to what the recipe of the week would be. I didn’t have a hankering for anything and I hadn’t purchase anything that needed to be cooked. Friday, my wife made a...

What does this have to do with Broadvox?

It has been more than two years since I began writing this blog so I was a little surprised that the discussion regarding Level 3 and Comcast merited a “what does this have to do with Broadvox?" response. Just as...

Erlangs...Really?

Most IT managers find it easy to determine how much bandwidth they need for data and it is not difficult to determine the bandwidth requirement for a SIP Trunk. With the Broadvox service a SIP Trunk should have an allocation...

Testing Has Begun, Please Disconnect Your Laptop

It has been an interesting week for bandwidth utilization discussions. First, there is the announcement by Level 3 that they have been forced by Comcast to pay higher fees to terminate traffic over the Comcast network. It is suspected that...

Gobble but don't be Gobbled

I hope you had a good Thanksgiving holiday. Obviously, it was an opportunity for me to cook. Thanksgiving Day was shared with my stepdaughter and grandkids so the meal was very traditional. As such, I was only responsible for the...

Sauerbraten and HIPPA Compliance

There are times when I first taste a thing and wonder where it has been all my life. I still remember my first taste of mayonnaise, brown mustard, a croissant, nachos and fish head curry. This weekend I added sauerbraten...

IT Managers Value Different PBX Features

While the list of favorite features for end users contains the most commonly used features those selected by IT managers might raise an eyebrow or two. To recap, the end user list is as follows: Call forwarding Call waiting Conference...

Ratatouille, Shrimp and the Best PBX Features

I began developing a new recipe Saturday morning. It was so different for me that I decided I’d better do a back up dish in case it came out badly. The backup dish was curd free scrambled eggs. These eggs...

Confidential...Good Luck with That

As I drove into the office this morning I heard that Google had fired the employee that leaked an internal memo regarding the global Google 10% raise. My first thought was the firing took place because the information was not...

Good Days and Bad Days

Last night I spent time with a very interesting group of business owners who have come together to create the Cloud Communications Alliance. They embody the spirit of the telecom entrepreneur by creating regional businesses that support SMBs with great...

Net Neutrality Rebuked During Tuesday's Election

It doesn’t take long for the spin machines to get up to speed. In perhaps one of the weirdest statements of fact, it was noted that all of the Democrats that supported a net neutrality pledge sponsored by the Progressive...

SMBs and Unified Communications

With the pending merger of Cypress Communications and Broadvox, I am expanding by research efforts into understanding and implementing Unified Communications (UC) solutions. While Cypress has the stronger UC solution for enterprises, both Cypress and Broadvox with C3 IP...

To STUN or Not to STUN

I am often asked how many people read this blog. The fact is I have no idea. The blog is posted with PhonePlus,  VON/xchange, TMCnet's IP Communications and SIP Trunking communities, Telecom Reseller, and Broadvox. The target audiences for...

STUNned Unnecessarily
