An all IP Future?

Is there really a question about the future of telecommunications? Over the last thirty years, I have participated in the development of the Intelligent Network Architecture that brought us Service Control Points and out of band signaling (SS7), Cellular...

Reading Food and SIP

What a busy weekend. My wife and I spent Saturday shopping and running errands. Dinner was a quick helping of fried chicken and waffles with maple syrup. I didn't grow up on the combination but I like it a...

Potato Cheesiness and the Top 5 Most Ridiculous Things I Have Ever Heard Part II

The past week was a culinary delight. I made Veal Oscar (veal scallops, lobster and white asparagus), blue corn chip smoked chicken nachos, chicken cordon blue and pappardelle with Bolognese sauce. Obviously, some tasty offerings. However, as I have...

Umami in Food and Telecom

While we were educated with the understanding of four tastes (sweet, sour, salty and bitter), umami has been recently added as a fifth basic taste. The word is Japanese and in English we sometimes refer to umami as being...

Channel Manager Qualities

Most of us have an immediate reaction to what makes a good channel program. I often see columns stating the top ten elements or criteria for selecting or participating in a channel program. Some of these are not debatable....

A Very Good Quarter

First of all thanks to all of the Partner Program members. We had our best GO! SIP Trunking sales quarter ever. We can only accomplish this through the efforts of our channel, channel managers and inside sales team. I...

VON, IP Man, Channel Partners and David Byrd

First, sorry about Wednesday. I was planning to discuss cloud computing and telecom but with meetings and a speaking session at VON, I ultimately did not find the time to write the blog. I will cover cloud computing and...

HD Meatballs and Voice

High-definition seems to be everywhere. So I thought, what the heck, let's make my HD Meatballs this weekend. It was tight race to the finish as last night I had a grilled Gebhardt chili powder marinated thick pork chop...

Congratulations...Thank You Very Much!

I have done my best to avoid having using this blog for self-promotion. However, Broadvox won the BEST OF SHOW award for Best Service Provider Solution at the most recent IT Expo. While it may seem like a simple...

Simple Steak and Simpler Software

There is nothing better than a great grilled steak during the summer months. Oh what the heck, there is nothing better than a great grilled steak any time of year. A great steak requires two things. A good cut...

Researching Hatch Chiles and Next Generation IP Technology

I forgot I was traveling on Sunday so my choices for recipe of the weekend was limited to either Saturday breakfast (open-faced grilled cheese on jalapeño cheese bagel) or Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Hatch Chile Cream Sauce. The choice...

Scallops and the State of IP

A busy weekend for food as usual with fried chicken on Saturday, omelets Sunday morning and Scallops with Cheese Sauce and pasta Sunday afternoon. While I have yet to share my fried chicken recipe or the omelet for that...

Writing the Customer a Monthly Check (Case Study I)

A few months ago, I issued a blog that stated I would cover ROI and case studies developed by our VARs. We now have three very different case studies to share with our VARs, OEM partners and prospects. Generally,...

The World Is Your Oyster

Oysters were the central food on Saturday. I made oyster po' boys accompanied with oyster soup. I knew the po' boy would be good but the soup was fantastic. It took me a little while to decide on the...

Trusted OEMs and the Honest Truth II

It is without hesitation that I reiterate Broadvox is agnostic with regard to your choice of PBXs, IADs or routers. You can visit our certified partner list to see the many companies that we work with on a daily...

Mashed Potatoes with where is the IP?

As usual, I ate well this weekend. I did forget to mention that two weeks ago I made my first corned beef from scratch. I found the recipe I used a bit curious in that it mentioned 3 hours...

Presenting IP Communications Continued...

There are five key areas to understand when improving upon presentation skills: ·         Voice Management ·         Body Control ·         Content Delivery ·         Time Management ·         Handling Questions and Answers I covered Voice Management and Body Control on Wednesday. Content...

Mirepoix, Classic...Next Generation, Priceless

The Fourth of July is a grilling weekend and mine was no exception. I fixed smoked chicken breasts, St. Louis Style barbeque ribs, bacon wrapped scallops and glazed shrimp. It was a feast for the eyes and soul. Thus...

Wi-FI, Mi-Fi and Michael Jackson

As usual, the weekend revolved around food but this one had a twist. I also entertained my grandsons. I promised to include their names so they could read this later in the week. So, here's to Jake and Stephen,...

Internal Training, External Success

Monday I identified a number of terms that are common to IP Communications. I suppose it would be useful to note that you should check out the Broadvox training area on the web. While we have interesting information now,...

The Right to Bear IP

While I have spent the week thinking about the direction of broadband for the US, I have also observed what is happening in other parts of the world. The growth of broadband and Internet access is indeed driving many...

Curry No Favors

It was another great weekend for food. My wife decided she wanted a shrimp curry and while that was a great idea, I like to have the flavor of several curries when eating Indian food. Therefore, I made three,...

Pricing Integrity and Discounting Part II

The prospect is requiring another round of discounts. This time it will affect your bottom line. You'll cover your cost but that's about it. You are concerned about your cash flow so you are seriously considering acquiescing to this...

The Value of a VAR

It seems that not enough love is given to VARs. I want to change that. Given our wholesale legacy, it was not obvious that we should sell SIP Trunking using an indirect channel. However, as we performed an analysis...

Can it Get Any Bigger?

Last quarter was mostly bad for earnings reported by Nortel, Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson and others due principally to a slowdown in network equipment purchases.  A casual observer of our industry might surmise that not all was well and they would...
