It's All about Mobility and Consumption

It’s not too soon to note that ANPI will be participating in the upcoming IT Expo and Cloud Partner conferences. They came to mind as I was reading about the state of PC shipments worldwide. According to an IDC forecast...

WebRTC, Unified Communications and VoIP Quality

These were the three subjects that I discussed while at IT Expo in Miami to fairly well attended sessions. We shared our new ANPI logo for the first time as well and received great accolades. It has been a very...

It's in the Cloud

As I walked the floor of IT EXPO yesterday, it was almost overwhelming to see the number of cloud-based solutions. The applications, tools, partners and value propositions have become stronger. Alliances between competitors are forming to promote cloud-based solutions, APIs...

The Conversion from TDM to SIP

Next week I will be on a panel at IT EXPO 2012 discussing the benefits of transitioning from TDM to SIP Trunking. I have spoken on this subject quite often and will dedicate this blog and Monday’s blog to the...

Unified Communications Most Important Feature

The week was very busy for Broadvox and many of our partners. We were in Miami for the East Coast version of ITEXPO. The crowd was bigger, the sessions attended by larger audiences and the discussion points varied. But like...

Just Hurry Up and Die

During IT Expo this week in Austin, I participated in several panels and gave a couple of presentations. The subject areas were the usual suspects, hosted communications, SIP Trunking, Unified Communications, Communications as a Service, etc. But what really got...

Branding, Brand Management and Winning

Yesterday during IT Expo, the first annual CMO Summit was held for about 100 marketing executives attending the show. The first speaker, (whose name was not on the invitation), spoke well but missed the mark for many of us. First,...

Interesting Pizza

It has been two weekends since I posted a food blog and the list of consumed item would make this blog a bit too long. So, let’s focus on the really good stuff. To be different today, I am going...

Come One and All

Next week IT Expo opens in Austin. Along with many others Broadvox and Cypress Communications will be exhibiting and speaking. We are fairly active during this conference supporting the show and several of the collocated events such as Ingate's SIP...

Super Bowl and Sinful Sunday

Although it didn’t feel like it, I cooked a lot this weekend. I was really up for it given that I spent the entire week traveling. Anyway, Friday consisted of pulled pork sliders done three ways: Carolina style with vinegar...

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...

Pulled Plug and Pork

The weekend was a short one with me having to travel on Sunday. I considered not having a recipe this morning but that would have been wrong. Friday night we had Chinese takeout. Surprise! Yes sometimes we order in. Saturday,...

The Legend of Telemarketing

I arrived at IT EXPO Monday morning with a very busy schedule. I was on three panels on Monday along with a video interview. On Tuesday, I represented Broadvox on three additional panels, one solo presentation, press interview, new...

What was the buzz at IT Expo?

In reviewing the sessions and talking to many of the exhibitors, it was impossible to say what was on the minds of the attendees. With regard to TMC and the event organizers, it was a little bit of this...

What will be the Buzz?

I am attending IT Expo in Miami this week and participating in three panel discussions. I know mostly what I will be talking about but I wonder what will be the leading topics of the show. Last year Nortel,...

Adtran, Jawbone and the SIP Trunking Market

Adtran held an interesting partner event this week in Huntsville, Alabama. Broadvox was invited to attend as we are one of their SIP Trunking service providers. I went with relatively modest expectation and no specific agenda. Upon landing I...

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...

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...

Peering, Equals Amongst Equals

Peering between networks is nothing new. It has been a part of conducting business for Broadvox and IP Service Providers for years. It is getting a second look as the possibility of free IP calling globally nears. Companies like...

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...

The State of IP (Part II) Q&A

Tehrani: In what ways is President Barack Obama helping or hindering the technology markets? What more can he do?   David Byrd: President Obama has only been in office six months and he has put in place what appear...

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...

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...

Super Borscht and SUPERCOMM...

The weekend for food was fantastic. In fact, I thought I had today's recipe Saturday morning. I made my version of French Toast and thought it worthy of sharing with you. To date, I have not included a breakfast...

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...
