Gravy and the Blue Light Dilemma

It should have been a great weekend for cooking but I wasn’t as motivated as normal. I made breakfast for my wife each day but only cooked on Saturday. I grilled wagyu beef New York strip steaks and served them...

Because

The QWERTY keyboard was designed to slow typing down. Early typewriters jammed when typists hit the keys too hard and fast. By moving the most used keys under the weakest fingers and forcing the use of the left hand (slightly...

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...

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...

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...

To All of You, Thanks

Yesterday a most unusual thing happened. A customer complained by sending an email to our CEO. Most companies expect to see emails or phone calls to upper management regarding service or billing issues regularly. However, in the case of...

The Wild Wild West and Net Neutrality

The immediate barrage of comments related to the net neutrality proposal from Google and Verizon gave me pause. While looking to such major players to devise a net neutrality plan that would truly address the concerns of consumer activists...

The Seven Deadliest UC Attacks

The number of end points continues to increase dramatically. As such, they are drawing the attention of hackers globally. Just as smartphones using Apple OS and Android are attracting the attention of hackers, as noted with the increase in...

Test My ISP

Earlier this week the FCC announced that four out of five Americans do not know the speed of their broadband at home. Additionally, 91 percent considered the speed of their broadband to be sufficient for their needs. This is...

IP Connects the World Again

What a weekend for food! It began with a Tostada (fried corn tortilla covered with refried beans, spicy beef, cheese, chipotle cream and guacamole), French toast (with an apple sauce, honey and maple syrup), sweetbreads three ways (braised with...

The Telecommunications Bible

Earlier this week I was sent an article discussing activity in congress to revise the Communications Act or more formerly the Telecommunications Act of 1996. The writer referred to the act as the "telecommunications bible". I thought about that...

A Cautious Approach to Net Neutrality, A Third Way

Yesterday, the major news of the day was the Dow dropping 1000 points in just a few minutes. However, for the world of telecom, it was the notice that FCC Chairman, Julius Genachowski, was going to release a statement...

Further Broadband Penetration Deconstruction

Before I begin, I want to remind you that most of the numbers used for the subject for this week's blog come from the Rural Utilities Service (RUS), National Telecommunications Infrastructure Administration (NTIA), Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and National...

Deconstructing Curry and Broadband Statistics

It was great to be home for the weekend and cooking my favorite foods. For starters, on Friday we had my fried chicken. Sometimes I'll purchase chicken but after having been in New Orleans for a long a weekend...

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...

The IP Scene is Green II

The last blog noted that the infrastructure required for IP Communications uses far fewer resources than similarly sized TDM networks. A Broadvox data center requires less power, construction materials, air conditioning and space than a Verizon central office switching...

The IP Scene is Green

When I first began to study whether SIP Trunking was part of improving the ecosystem, I encountered a rather well written article stating that VoIP was not a green technology. I accepted this position until recently when I realized...

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...

800 million plus 332 million

This blog could have been written as Broadvox beats bandwidth.com, but I realized it was an opportunity to point out a good thing. Last week during IT Expo West Sean Rivers, Director of Sales and Product Engineering was quoted...

Up to 70% Savings...Case Study III

Wednesday's case study was a single location with a leased IP PBX and GO!Anywhere service. This case study is interesting as the customer already had an IP PBX, Cisco Call Manager, and VoIP infrastructure. This was a very similar...

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...

VoIP Security Begins at Home

The first part of this discussion was on simple things an IT Department should be doing to protect its IT infrastructure period. Today we will focus more on VoIP security actions a business should per perform. The first is...

Trout Stuffed with Seafood and the End of a War
