Think

IBM is celebrating its 100th year as a business and for that I congratulate them. Consequently, IBM is getting a bit more press and we can gain insight into how they accomplished such a feat. Last Sunday on CBS Sunday...

IPv6 and the Yottabyte

By now most of you know that Wednesday was World IPv6 Day. Altogether, 434 websites, universities, technology companies and service providers shared their content over IPv6. After a collective pause and one-eyed peaking, they learned that IPv6 and IPv4 could...

A Stormy Night Shows Me the Future

Certainly what Dallas went through last night doesn’t measure up to the situation in Joplin, Missouri. However, it was enough to turn a 10:00 PM arrival into a 1:45 AM arrival. In addition, the plane contained 45 or so 13...

Whew! It's Finally over!

Whew! It’s Finally over! The Broadvox 2011 Partner Summit ended yesterday and it was an event enjoyed by all. We were very happy to have over 130 attendees and 19 sponsors: Aastra ABP Technology AudioCodes BroadSoft Cisco Covad Digium...

Asparagus Aspirations

I really enjoy Thai food and I make a decent chicken with green curry, but Friday, we had Spicy Thai Noodles and Beef. For more of a well rounded dish I added haricot verts and peas, delicious. Saturday was beer...

How much do You Pay?

IP Communications utilizes the skills of traditional telecom and information technology (IT). However, most of us with the telecom backgrounds have conceded that the bulk of the work and authority lies with the IT department. As such, it is important...

The Best of the Blog 2010

Perhaps you are new to this blog (and I say welcome), or you may have been reading since 2008 when the blog started (in which case I say thanks for reading). However, today is a chance for you to read...

Soaring with Turkeys and Eagles

Friday is nearly always a casual dining day and last Friday was no different. I made classic Reuben sandwiches for dinner using my homemade pastrami and corned beef. Loved it! Saturday we tried out a new Indian restaurant that opened...

It's Getting Really Cloudy Out There

Enterprise Connect had one subject with many minds, Cloud Computing. Since it is necessary to say what you intend to do in the cloud, the simplest announcements state Unified Communications (UC), more complicated Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) and...

Excellence and Killing the Monkeys

To succeed in a competitive environment and difficult economy, it is important to hire and retain excellence. When a merger takes place, one inherits unknown talent and determining who has the characteristics needed to succeed takes time to assess. However,...

VAD and Waffles

I wasn’t sure of what to fix this weekend as I needed to smoke some salmon for next week’s national sales meeting. All of the Broadvox and Cypress Communications sales personnel will be in Dallas meeting each other for the...

SNR Dreaming

As a result of the Broadvox and Cypress Communications merger, we decided it would be a good time to redesign our logo (most of you will miss the change) and redesign our business cards (much needed). As such, the new...

Internet On, Internet Off

Most of my blogs avoid politics because I want the focus to be on learning about IP communications and gaining a selling advantage. Today is a little different in that I am very much opposed to legislation sponsored by two...

Zero, Six, 6940

It seems that even when IP communications gets a mentioned in the State of the Union address, it is only as a prop for some other thing. The 2011 State of the Union address had 6940 words, 6 mentions of...

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...

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...

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...

Ham, Fettuccine and FiOS

After being on the road for 11 of the last 12 days, I was looking forward to cooking again. However, I would be remiss if I did not describe our last meal in New York City. I was anxious...

VoIP Services Market Continues Upward Trend

ABI Research has released a new forecast identifying the continued double digit growth of the VoIP services market. They have broken down the market into SIP Trunking, virtual/hosted IP PBX, managed services and VoIP integrated access. Their forecast is...

Paella and Payola

This weekend represented some of the best cooking I have done this year (in so short a period of time). Friday, my wife and I enjoyed the Barbeque Shrimp with Boudin Bakery sourdough bread. I know, I made it...

Broadband, a Civil Right?

Never does it fail that when a group of bureaucrats get together silly mind numbing thoughts will flow. Regardless of the country, format, subject or education, the pronouncements by these public servants continue to amaze and infuriate those us...

Fixing BBQ Shrimp and FoIP

I was very busy this weekend installing a new garage door opener and a few other tasks so my cooking was limited. My wife surprised me by cooking enchiladas on Friday. I did not feel like cooking after installing the...

Happy Birthday and the Here You Go Virus

I celebrated my birthday this weekend by inviting a couple of dozen people over to celebrate. It was a lot of work to cook for that many people but done over a few days not bad. I made a...

Hosted, Cloud Computing, SaaS, Managed Services

The list of terms for a similar function has gotten ridiculous. In a world that has gone acronym crazy, it is very difficult to get a simple message out. However, hear me scream that the market for virtual IP...

Contact Centers Need New Strategies

Earlier in the week, I spoke to a conference of call and contact center managers. When I was asked to speak some months ago, I wondered what I could possibly say to the group that would be interesting. I...
