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,...

Try It and Buy It...Not!

How did this concept begin? I'd really like to know so that I could figure out a way to kill it. In a similar vein of thought where we need to address the FUD (Fear Uncertainty and Doubt) associated...

The Nortel Effect?

At least two analysts are now predicting a drop in VoIP/SIP Trunking growth for enterprise customers.  This was not surprising as I reached the same conclusion some months ago. Using my limited cognitive abilities, I did not see how...

We are the Champions..We are Agnostic!

Most days this is less a blog and more an assessment or statement about the IP Community. Today, it is a blog or web log or what happened to me lately. Yesterday I received the following call: "Hi, is...

Everyone wants to say he or she is the best at something. However, given the number of people and companies on the planet saying you are the best is very difficult. Consequently, when I joined Broadvox and was informed...

The Multi-Faceted IAD

IADs are most thought of when we need to attach a TDM PBX or Key System to a VoIP/SIP Service.  They range in price from a few hundred dollars to several thousand depending upon the connectivity required and desired...

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...

SIP is the RAGE

Over the weekend, I received an email from a VAR with the tag line "SIP is the RAGE". Wow!  Additionally, he had read my blog. (Sometimes as I type these up, I think the only people reading this are...

Wash the FUD out of Your Mouth

So what dramatic thing did I do? I looked at the audience and exclaimed, "Bull____!" Okay, I was braver then and there were no children in the audience. But it worked. Now I had their attention. I pressed home...

VoIP and FoIP

Without fail every time I present to an audience I am confronted with the question, "How do you handle Faxing?" Faxing is the bane of IP Communications. Industry numbers indicate a one-page fax failure rate of around 80% with...

VoIP/SIP Trunking Assessment Criteria...

I prepared this last year and discussed it with many VARs. Recently I was asked about it again. So today, I am reissuing the five VoIP/SIP Trunking Assessment Criteria.  Cost: The current economic environment creates an opportunity for SMBs...

IP Man...Batman?
