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...

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...

But Wait! There's More!

Earlier this week both at home and at the office we did a series of “But Wait! There’s More!” jokes. And today as I considered a subject for my blog I ran across a blog by Dan Jacobson using the...

PBX Sales Are Growing Again

According to a study released in June by Eastern Management Group, sales of PBXs in 2010 grew 16% over 2009. Moreover, SIP Trunks are installed on 45% of newly installed IP PBXs. This remains consistent with what many of the...

Two OEMs, Two OSs

3CX and Digium are two of Broadvox’s largest IP PBX platforms in terms of SIP Trunking market share. I am always hesitant to mention specific IP PBX OEMs for fear of alienating another of our OEM partners. That said please...

A SIP Trunk Standard Emerges

In a recent interview I noted that Broadvox has done more interoperability testing (IOT) than any other carrier. The interviewer then responded with a very pertinent question, “Did we find interoperability testing a good thing?” the answer is a resounding...

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...

Erlangs...Really?

Most IT managers find it easy to determine how much bandwidth they need for data and it is not difficult to determine the bandwidth requirement for a SIP Trunk. With the Broadvox service a SIP Trunk should have an allocation...

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...

Contact Centers Need New Strategies

Earlier in the week, I spoke to a conference of call and contact center managers. When I was asked to speak some months ago, I wondered what I could possibly say to the group that would be interesting. I...

Offal is not Awful and the Seven Deadliest Attacks

Last week was great for food. I was in Cleveland to train our new channel managers when I found I had an evening to myself. I went to Lola, owned by Michael Symon, an Iron Chef on the food...

Survivability

Last week, I missed posting my Friday blog. I was working on a response to a proposal for a large multi-national enterprise. It was different from most RFPs we receive, in that pricing and traffic were not the primary...

Don't Clam UP about CCS

I was on the road most of last week and the food was mediocre at best. I was quite anxious to eat some of my own cooking this weekend. Friday was a chopped brisket with coleslaw sandwich. The brisket...

The IP Community Needs a Little Privacy

The IP Community Needs a Little Privacy Perhaps, I have written about this before but after discovering the FCC broadband test site, I needed to blog on this again. Historically, we have always known that sending information over the...

The Rise of the SIP Trunks

Perhaps, I was a bit hasty in describing the growth of SIP Trunking last week. Yes, a SIP Trunk is expected to be the second most installed type of trunking service (behind T1s) and a majority of medium to...

Pan Roasted Chicken and a Little Reminder...

Last week was not fun. My laptop disk had a hard crash. Luckily, since I was traveling, I had backed everything up before leaving town. However, it meant that I needed to go into the office on Saturday to...

Now for a Word from Our Sponsor...

 It is always interesting how things evolve. When I initially considered doing a blog, it was going to be ghost written by me and have the face of another Broadvox executive. Don't be surprised, the early columns written for...

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...

Writing the Customer a Monthly Check (Case Study I)

A few months ago, I issued a blog that stated I would cover ROI and case studies developed by our VARs. We now have three very different case studies to share with our VARs, OEM partners and prospects. Generally,...

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 Chicken or the Egg

I arrived yesterday at Interop to see walk the floors and determine if this show was ready for SIP Trunking. Eighteen months ago, we had a booth at Interop in New York City and the visibility and interest afforded...

Apples and Oranges (SIP Trunking)

Food was both good and bad this weekend. We finally dined out this weekend.  On a lark, we decided to try a new restaurant in the area. The restaurant was a remarkable sight. It was beautifully built with interesting...

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...

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...
