SIP Trunking Cost Savings Redux

On Monday I discussed why it is difficult to tie a single cost savings number to transitioning your connectivity from dedicated PRIs to converged T1s or SIP Trunks. While most companies will see a savings, the amount is network dependent....

SIP Trunking and Guacamole Redux

I wasn’t sure there would be a recipe of the week since I spent the weekend in Houston at a wedding. The wedding was for Malachi Threadgill who wrote a couple of my blogs on search engine optimization (SEO) and...

IP Reflections

In attempting to better understand the impact of the FCC rules change regarding InterCarrier Compensation (ICC) and Universal Service Funding (USF), I found myself lost in a sea of IP related missives. Ignoring the obviously flawed reasoning behind the rules...

Forecasting Chicken, Steak and Fairness

Last week was an exploration of chicken. I purchased three chicken breasts and decided to create a different chicken dish for three consecutive nights (all three breasts were brined for 24 hours in water, salt and lemon juice, rinsed and...

Do You Want SIP Trunks with That?

Apparently, since the merger of Broadvox and Cypress Communications, I have written more blogs on Unified Communications than SIP Trunking. I was a bit surprised but shouldn’t have been. Unified Communications (UC) does not require SIP Trunking. In addition to...

We interrupt this Count

Yesterday, the US Senate defeated an attempt to block the pending Net Neutrality rules. The bill was defeated by a 52-46 vote. This was an important vote since a similar bill to block the implementation of the rules was passed...

Broadband Selection Criteria 2 and 3

As Broadvox has grown as an ITSP and hosted service provider, exclaiming the value of improved QoS is becoming more and more important. Furthermore, with the continued ambiguity surrounding real net neutrality rules, IP communications continue to be at risk...

Wanted Good Food and an ITSP

Over the weekend we enjoyed Tex-Mex at a local restaurant. Gay ordered her usual chimichanga and I order four different enchiladas. Now before you think I gorged myself, remember that I will over order when I am interested in trying...

Welcome to Potatoes, Onions and Oz

It was another great weekend for the foodie in me. The new grill and I played well together each day. Friday was grilled Cornish game hen that was marinated in Chinese five-spice, soy and sesame seed oil. Saturday, we enjoyed...

Business is Gulping SIP

According to Infonetics Research, the SIP Trunking market in terms of revenue grew 143% in 2010. Certainly, Broadvox and its partners experienced significant growth last year and we anticipate strong revenues again this year. I am often asked about our...

Business VoIP Faces Armageddon

Perhaps the hardest thing to do in this blog was keep the word “puppy” out of the title. An ambient video showing some cute puppies has caused quite a stir as its popularity is greater than that of ESPN Online....

Soaring with Turkeys and Eagles

Friday is nearly always a casual dining day and last Friday was no different. I made classic Reuben sandwiches for dinner using my homemade pastrami and corned beef. Loved it! Saturday we tried out a new Indian restaurant that opened...

Pins and Needles

The FCC voted to reform the Universal Service Fund and potentially eliminate the InterCarrier Compensation (ICC) system this week and much to my surprise there were no screams of protest. Perhaps, because the FCC, Congress and the carriers now that...

Going Dutch

Sushi Friday night and French to celebrate our anniversary on Saturday left few options for an original recipe this weekend. Therefore, one of two dishes made on Sunday would have to succeed. The leading option was a meaty pasta entrée...

Making Lemonade or M&A

For the months it took to reach a definitive agreement to merge between Broadvox and Cypress Communications, those of us in the know knew that silence was important. When one my direct reports figured out we were performing due...

And Congress Steps Over It

While many of us look forward to when congress does even less that it's doing today, there are times when we need them to act. Resolving the concerns regarding net neutrality is one of those times. House Energy and...

Hosted, Cloud Computing, SaaS, Managed Services

The list of terms for a similar function has gotten ridiculous. In a world that has gone acronym crazy, it is very difficult to get a simple message out. However, hear me scream that the market for virtual IP...

It's All About the Channel

One of the less surprising announcements yesterday was that Mark Hurd would be joining Oracle as a co-president. I found it more interesting that Larry Ellison found HP Board had let him go due to political correctness. For the...

Changing the World is not Easy

Earlier this week I read someone's comments regarding the new Google Voice free service. The essence of the article was that this free service was going to change the way telecommunications is delivered and sold in the US, and,...

Advertised, Expectations and Actual

We were busy this weekend so food was rather pedestrian, pizza for both Friday and Saturday. I did prepare a nice spring salad for each meal. However, I prepared one dish that was outstanding, Seared Ahi Tuna and Mexican...

Combating the Seven Deadliest Attacks with an E-SBC

The seven deadliest attacks on Unified Communications do not need to be fatal. However, they do require multiple approaches. First, here is the list as developed by Dan York. If you want to see details, please visit the Wednesday...

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...

Over Reach and Just Right

It has been a few days since the Federal court ruled against the FCC in the matter of Comcast Cable. It is important to note that few players in the carrier world wanted to see Comcast lose. However, there...

Broadband Expansion Economic Impact

The initial focus of this series explained that most of the allocated telecom stimulus money has not been awarded and only a small fraction of it spent. The next consideration is what will the impact be on our IP...
