Oklahoma and Eurocentric: The Demise of the Landline

In my many weeks of writing this blog, I have received only one comment. That comment was they never expected to see Oklahoma and Eurocentric in the same sentence. Well you are going to see it again. That particular blog...

Vidalia Onions, Summer and Edge Devices

The weather has been very unusual in Dallas this year. The rain has been unrelenting and we have yet to have a hot spell. This gets into the psyche of some people, not me, but some people. Anyway, my...

By the Byte or the End of the Buffet

Wednesday I was running short on time and could not finish the description of the proposed changes to bandwidth utilization pricing. At its core, it is simply a way for the cable companies to increase prices for access to...

SIP Trunking is Fun!

Did I catch your attention? Do you agree? Well the cable companies and even Dallas's own Mark Cuban don't agree. Perhaps, I am overstating their position but the result of restricting the amount of data that is transmitted during...

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...

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...

FUD and TAG

Perhaps you are wondering what got me going on this whole FUD thing and IP Communications. I was recently on a panel at the Technology Assurance Group National Convention. This is an exceptional organizational consisting of 120+ major VARs...

Pork Rib Roast and FUD

It rained Easter so the day began a bit dreary. However, there was excitement in our house because the grandkids were coming over after church. It is always fun to see them but on holidays, we try to do...

2009 TAG National Convention...

I have been very busy this week working the convention for TAG (Technology Assurance Group). The usual activity was around booth duty, which can be interesting at times, but the best part of the three days was listening to...

Online Advertising of SIP

While most of my blogs have been on IP communications (VoIP/SIP), I have been working on determining the best ways to spend our precious marketing dollars for this year. The challenge given to me has been to spend the...

The Future is When?

I was traveling overseas about two years ago and took a picture of a number of payphones that sat unused. At the time, I wondered how much longer they would exist given the growing penetration of cell phones. This...

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...

Conundrum or Kundra

Vivek Kundra has been named as President Obama's CIO. He is the former CTO of the District of Columbia and Assistant Secretary of Commerce and Technology for Virginia. He looks like someone who has interacted with Washington a fair...

The Irish lose but Vegas Wins!

What a weekend for food. Now I promised the Salmon with Vodka Cream Sauce and Fettuccine recipe. So, that is the recipe for the day. However, my wife, Gay, and I had another great meal that I developed as...

What's Relevant?

In writing a blog, I want to share what I experience in the industry and provide a little bit of clarity on subjects that, well, need a bit of clarity. It seems that IP Communications has more various avenues...

A Stimulating Valentine's Day Meal

I cook seriously five or six days during the year. Valentine's Day is one of those days.  The theme of the evening was to have the color red in each dish. The menu consisted of two appetizers, crab claws...

Triple play and Peering...

I spent the weekend enjoying Tex-Mex dishes. They are a guilty pleasure here in Texas. Of course, I do not go to the nearest watering hole to satiate my needs; I rather enjoy making the food at home. And,...

IP Man...Batman?

Recently, I read that there may be a comparison between IP Man and Batman. Sure IP Man fights evil doers but he does not have the dark background of Batman. Bruce Wayne becomes Batman because of the murder of...

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...

The Broadvox First Quarter Sales Meeting and 2009

This week was both exciting and fun. It is always a pleasure to get our sales team together from across the country to share work experiences, stories, food and fun. This first meeting of 2009 was no different. Even...

As Nortel falls, AudioCodes rises

For me today begins with a bit of nostalgia. As I drove into work, I learned that Nortel announced this morning that it was filing for bankruptcy protection. This is not completely unexpected, However, just a few weeks ago,...

Gravity, Pork, Apples and Newton...

Okay pork was not part of this original list but it does go well with apples. Over the weekend, I made fried pork chops with a caramelized onion and apple salsa. Grilled shrimp and scallops served with linguini and...

What the Heck is a SIP Trunk?

No...this is not going to be SIP Trunking 101. I think most of you out there know what a SIP Trunk is. However, have you considered that most of the people we are selling them to have no clue....

Budgets, Budgets, Budgets

I spent the last few months working on marketing and sales plans for 2009. Every time I think I have something workable, I consider the potential changes to our telecom landscape. Companies like Broadvox see tremendous opportunities to grow....

Red, White and Blew...

The holidays were a blast. My favorite new dish was the heirloom tomatoes with white truffle oil; a bit extravagant for recipes on this blog though. RED: Yesterday was southern fried chicken with mac and cheese.  I grew up...
