ANPI Goes to Washington

For me NTCA's Legislature and Policy meeting in Washington, D.C. represented an opportunity to participate in a process that is cloaked in secrecy.

Offal is not Awful and the Seven Deadliest Attacks

Last week was great for food. I was in Cleveland to train our new channel managers when I found I had an evening to myself. I went to Lola, owned by Michael Symon, an Iron Chef on the food...

SEO, SEM, Social Media sells IP

It has been at least a year since I discussed the need to expand your marketing efforts to include more on line elements. Most of the Broadvox VARs are SMBs and have few, if any, resources to expand their...

Simply a Grilled Cheese Sandwich and SIP

One of the simplest things to make is a grilled cheese sandwich. Yet, many of you wait until you go to a Mexican restaurant to have a quesadilla, a grilled cheese sandwich. The only difference is the use of...

BP and IP

As I sat this morning watching the live feed of the oil unleashed by British Petroleum (BP) in the Gulf of Mexico, I wondered about the role of IP communications in the event. Certainly, the reason that I can...

A Change is a Coming

The workhorse for digital communications beyond a private network has been the T1. The T1, which stands for Trunk Level 1, is a digital transmission link operating at 1.544 Mbps. For several decades, businesses have looked to T1s to...

Should Broadband Expansion be Public Policy?

Interestingly, the announcement by the FCC of a National Broadband Plan received little to no attention on our major media outlets. Perhaps it's because the amount of money involved is rather low when compared to Social Security, Medicare, and...

Broadband Access, a Matter of Public Policy?

Julius Genachowski, chair of the FCC, was quite pleased to announce plans to transfer billions of dollars from the USF to develop broadband in rural and underserved areas of the country. More eagerly, the current FCC wants to connect...

An Odd Pairing, Pork and Clams, Obama and Net Neutrality

Two thoughts come to mind as I look back on this weekend's dining delights. First, it is good that the Super Bowl comes once a year as I always prepare too much fried food. Second, remembering one of your...

Looking for IP Services

Clearly, the focus of Broadvox and similar ITSPs is to promote SIP Trunking or SIP termination and origination. However, there is a larger and faster growing market in the business community for simple VoIP solutions. According to In-Stat, 41%...

On the Hunt for Good Food and IP Services

This weekend was a bit out of the norm for me as I decided it had been some months since I researched some local eateries. The result of this is that I usually do not cook when conducting such...

Real Carriers Eat Quiche

It's been a couple of weeks since I last wrote this blog. The amount of travel and such to start the year was a bit overwhelming and I found time to be a commodity in short supply. I decided...

Moving Your Team from TDM to IP

As always, food was great this weekend. We had chicken fried steak, grilled spicy Asian chicken wings, parsley potatoes and another crown pork roast (fixed entirely different from the previous recipes) with a wonderful side of apples. I had...

The Senate Hearings Have Begun

Monday I changed my position and now support tiered broadband pricing. There is enough existing or potential competition in urban areas to support this pricing model without dampening access to or the adoption rate of high-speed broadband. However, in...

SIP...It's the RAGE Part II or Who's Buying?

Always an interesting question. What we know is that no vertical market is superseding another in the adoption of VoIP/SIP.  Analysts in particular look for some type of vertical trend. They find it difficult to believe that a given...

Interconnect, Taxes and Innovation

Today at IT Expo, we had a Service Provider round table. It was interesting to listen to others in this space, some with a focus on enterprises and others consumer markets. While we at Broadvox often discuss issues facing...
