Selling SIP Trunking to SMBs and Enterprises involves three basic value propositions: ·         Transitioning to SIP will save you a lot of money. How much varies but for most businesses regardless of size, the savings will range from 30-70%....

To the Beat of a Different Drum

Friday, we had Alaskan King Crab Quiche and Sunday, I served cannelloni. While there are many versions of cannelloni, I made my filling using smoked pork loin and cured Virginia ham. I chose those particular meats over Italian sausage...

Are Current Government Policies Hurting SMBs?

A recent cover story by CRN interviewed small IT related businesses regarding President Obama's 2009/2010 legislative activity/wins and the impact on their business. While I am sure the story was not attempting to accurately poll IT related SMBs, it...

Integrating Wireless with IP Communications to Increase Revenues

Often times I am asked to provide advice to our partners on how they can increase their sales. In addition to the basic blocking and tackling that must be done to develop a sales force and educate our prospects,...

Beating FUD with MOS

My interest in the Mean Opinion Score (MOS) increased when a Verizon spokes person in 2008 stated that their VoIP product was not as good as their TDM or traditional voice product. The comment came as result of questioning...

SIP Trunking and VoiceCon

The three-hour SIP Trunking session at VoiceCon drew over three hundred participants. That is SIPnormous. It demonstrates the growing interest in SIP by enterprises as they begin to supplement their intranet VoIP implementations with extranet SIP. While Broadvox was...

Should Broadband Expansion be Public Policy?

Interestingly, the announcement by the FCC of a National Broadband Plan received little to no attention on our major media outlets. Perhaps it's because the amount of money involved is rather low when compared to Social Security, Medicare, and...

The SIP and Serve Blog

I have been added to a few new sites over the last couple of weeks and I think I should let the new readers know what the SIP and Serve blog is about. First, we will discuss what is...

On Wednesday, we addressed the first three bullets... ·         Per line cost (save 60-70%) ·         Usage cost for local inbound/outbound calling (typically no charge) ·         Domestic long distance calling (save 42-68%) Today, I want to address the savings for...

SIP Trunking Cost Savings Updated

In December of 2008 I blogged about the cost savings associated with SIP Trunking. The primary reason was that I had just read a column that questioned whether transitioning to VoIP/SIP Trunking could save a business 70%.  It was...

Looking for IP Services

Clearly, the focus of Broadvox and similar ITSPs is to promote SIP Trunking or SIP termination and origination. However, there is a larger and faster growing market in the business community for simple VoIP solutions. According to In-Stat, 41%...

Real Carriers Eat Quiche

It's been a couple of weeks since I last wrote this blog. The amount of travel and such to start the year was a bit overwhelming and I found time to be a commodity in short supply. I decided...

The IP Scene is Green II

The last blog noted that the infrastructure required for IP Communications uses far fewer resources than similarly sized TDM networks. A Broadvox data center requires less power, construction materials, air conditioning and space than a Verizon central office switching...

The IP Scene is Green

When I first began to study whether SIP Trunking was part of improving the ecosystem, I encountered a rather well written article stating that VoIP was not a green technology. I accepted this position until recently when I realized...

A Parfait Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is the time to give thanks and for many too over indulge. This year we were to celebrate thanksgiving alone so we accepted an invitation to have the dinner at a friend's home. Given that, I did not...

Who Do Those Customers Think They Are?

I will always remember when I was asked while participating on a panel during a past IT Expo if Broadvox was concerned about competing with Verizon and AT&T. I immediately answered with a confident, "No". They will, of course,...

Crabby over Security

Sorry for being late today but the day began at the dentist's office. It threw me off my routine. Anyway, food as usual over the weekend was very good. We had deep fried turkey (Louisiana), jerk steaks (Jamaica) and...

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,...

Trusted OEMs and the Honest Truth II

It is without hesitation that I reiterate Broadvox is agnostic with regard to your choice of PBXs, IADs or routers. You can visit our certified partner list to see the many companies that we work with on a daily...

Moving Your Team from TDM to IP

As always, food was great this weekend. We had chicken fried steak, grilled spicy Asian chicken wings, parsley potatoes and another crown pork roast (fixed entirely different from the previous recipes) with a wonderful side of apples. I had...

Pricing Integrity and Discounting Part II

The prospect is requiring another round of discounts. This time it will affect your bottom line. You'll cover your cost but that's about it. You are concerned about your cash flow so you are seriously considering acquiescing to this...

The Multi-Faceted IAD

IADs are most thought of when we need to attach a TDM PBX or Key System to a VoIP/SIP Service.  They range in price from a few hundred dollars to several thousand depending upon the connectivity required and desired...

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...It's the RAGE Part II or Who's Buying?

Always an interesting question. What we know is that no vertical market is superseding another in the adoption of VoIP/SIP.  Analysts in particular look for some type of vertical trend. They find it difficult to believe that a given...
