Have a COW, Man!

This is my favorite time of year in Dallas with the fall second. The reason is simple. Sunny weather and we can be outside to enjoy it. Summer in Texas can be brutal with 100 degree days quite common. Anyway,...

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
