Geo Targeted SEO for SIP Trunking

Previously, I discussed the value of geo-targeting using Google. In the last couple of weeks we have developed our first geo-targeted SEO campaign. As a result of the merger with Cypress Communications, Broadvox inherited over 600 buildings with shared tenant...

Gnocchi isn't New and neither is DDoS

Breaking the fast Friday night was both exciting and anticlimactic. I decided on having Pollo Asado using Cornish game hens rather than chicken. I marinated a Cornish Game hen in salt, adobe seasonings, Mexican oregano, achiote sauce, water, orange, pineapple,...

Playing Chicken with Net Neutrality

What a weekend for food. On Friday, I made Philly cheese steak sandwiches with thinly sliced rib eye steak, onions, bell peppers and Swiss cheese. Saturday was a smash with Italian Chicken Cacciatore. I make it with chicken thighs for...

Interoperability and Lync

Prior to the rush to Microsoft Lync, Broadvox was intending to extend its interoperability to latest release of Office Communications Server (OCS). However, we have now agreed with Microsoft engineers to complete interoperability testing on Lync. Interestingly, Wikipedia refers to...

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...

Zero, Six, 6940

It seems that even when IP communications gets a mentioned in the State of the Union address, it is only as a prop for some other thing. The 2011 State of the Union address had 6940 words, 6 mentions of...

Practicing Safe SIP

From time to time I do multi-part blogs to describe more complicated issues. Last month the Broadvox marketing team and I decided to consolidate a few of the blogs into an article which was published in Telecom Reseller. That article...

A Bold and Rich Choice

This was another weekend where I knew the recipe of the week on Friday. We had some finger foods on both Saturday and Sunday for watching the football games. Although, my wife and I enjoyed every bite of Sunday’s finger...

The Value of the VAR

It is not unusual for a VAR to ask our channel managers how to improve their sales of SIP. However, it is the wrong the question. The VAR should never lead with SIP. The Broadvox VAR Partner Program was established...

What is the best IP PBX?

Now that’s a loaded question for a carrier. The most typical answer is it depends upon factors specific to your business and infrastructure. I prefer to give an answer that moves away from the specific IP PBX comparisons to the...

Testing Has Begun, Please Disconnect Your Laptop

It has been an interesting week for bandwidth utilization discussions. First, there is the announcement by Level 3 that they have been forced by Comcast to pay higher fees to terminate traffic over the Comcast network. It is suspected that...

Gobble but don't be Gobbled

I hope you had a good Thanksgiving holiday. Obviously, it was an opportunity for me to cook. Thanksgiving Day was shared with my stepdaughter and grandkids so the meal was very traditional. As such, I was only responsible for the...

Sauerbraten and HIPPA Compliance

There are times when I first taste a thing and wonder where it has been all my life. I still remember my first taste of mayonnaise, brown mustard, a croissant, nachos and fish head curry. This weekend I added sauerbraten...

Pancakes and a Hopping Good Time

I go into every weekend wondering what I will make that is original and be of interest to you guys. However, I, too, like to eat some things more than once and from time to time it is not...

Net Neutrality Rebuked During Tuesday's Election

It doesn’t take long for the spin machines to get up to speed. In perhaps one of the weirdest statements of fact, it was noted that all of the Democrats that supported a net neutrality pledge sponsored by the Progressive...

To STUN or Not to STUN

I am often asked how many people read this blog. The fact is I have no idea. The blog is posted with PhonePlus,  VON/xchange, TMCnet's IP Communications and SIP Trunking communities, Telecom Reseller, and Broadvox. The target audiences for...

Porchetta and Interop 2010

After a train trip to conduct business with TMC in Connecticut, I thought I may as well have pre-dinner appetizers at the Oyster Bar in Grand Central Station. After 16 oysters from all over North America and sea urchin,...

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...

ABI Research has released a new forecast identifying the continued double digit growth of the VoIP services market. They have broken down the market into SIP Trunking, virtual/hosted IP PBX, managed services and VoIP integrated access. Their forecast is...

2010 Channel Partners was Well Received

Early comments from those attending the 2010 Channel Partners conference outside Washington DC have been very good. While Broadvox did not exhibit, we did sponsor an education session, "Hosted VoIP for VARs". Although, our primary sales of SIP trunks...

Broadband, a Civil Right?

Never does it fail that when a group of bureaucrats get together silly mind numbing thoughts will flow. Regardless of the country, format, subject or education, the pronouncements by these public servants continue to amaze and infuriate those us...

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...

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...
