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...

The Diminishing SIP Trunk, Not!

Recently, I have read multiple blogs and articles devaluing the role and savings associated with SIP Trunks. In each case I found the logic used compelling but the conclusion somewhat missing the mark. SIP Trunking, as exclaimed by ShoreTel for...

Napoleonic Dreams

Finding a title for today’s blog was more difficult than usual. That stems mostly from my choice of recipe of the week. I hope you don’t think it unbecoming of a foodie due to its simplicity. Naturally, the weekend was...

Differentiating Yourself When Considered a Commodity

Over the past two weeks, we have engaged the real estate representatives that can influence our ability to sell in buildings where we have a PBX or can provide broadband access and hosted services. Although, the majority of the presentation...

Commercial Real Estate and Cloud Computing

Over the last two weeks Broadvox and Cypress have met with our major landlord and tenant representatives in Dallas and Atlanta. The meetings were held to engage the major commercial real estate players that have worked with Cypress over the...

Internet Marketing State of the Union

The primary topics normally discussed on this blog involve IP telephony, the VAR community, Unified Communications, and of course my passion for food.  Occasionally, I like to spice it up and discuss marketing and more specifically, internet marketing.   The shifts...

The E-SBC is On the Rise

Broadvox is closely aligned with several E-SBC suppliers; AudioCodes, Ingate, Cisco and others. However, only recently did I note the growth in the market segment. According to Infonetics, Enterprise Session Border Controller sales grew by 70% in 2010. The growth...

Because

The QWERTY keyboard was designed to slow typing down. Early typewriters jammed when typists hit the keys too hard and fast. By moving the most used keys under the weakest fingers and forcing the use of the left hand (slightly...

Quantifying Unified Communications

A few months ago I mentioned a study by Microsoft that identified travel savings as the greatest benefit for evolving to Unified Communications. While I agreed with the most of the study, it was done from the view point of...

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...

How Green is the Cloud?

Cloud computing is everywhere with most of us having the key benefits down to a fine science. However, yesterday got me thinking about how green is the cloud? One of our key OEMs is launching a new program that will...

SIP 2.0

Understanding SIP is paramount to VARs or IT shops delivering VoIP in any fashion. The point was made very clear to meet a few weeks ago that SIP is the protocol of choice in nearly every implementation or delivery of...

The Best of the Blog 2010

Perhaps you are new to this blog (and I say welcome), or you may have been reading since 2008 when the blog started (in which case I say thanks for reading). However, today is a chance for you to read...

Fill and Keep

Previously, I mentioned that I had a TEC grill for nearly thirteen years before replacing it two weeks ago. One thing my new grill did not have was an infrared burner capable of 1500oF for searing beef, lamb and other...

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...

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...

Scrambling to Grow, Slowly and Thoughtfully

The past weekend was good for dining as well as cooking. Friday was casual with burgers and chicken fried steak. Saturday, I cooked corned beef and smoked pastrami. Sunday was a fried Cornish game hen and a Caesar salad. That...

From SNL to the Senate, the Honorable Al Franken

I was not one of those that felt Ronald Reagan did not have the stuff to be President of the United States. He was older than I and “Bed Time for Bonzo” was not on my must watch list. Even...

It's Getting Really Cloudy Out There

Enterprise Connect had one subject with many minds, Cloud Computing. Since it is necessary to say what you intend to do in the cloud, the simplest announcements state Unified Communications (UC), more complicated Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) and...

How Big is the Virtual PBX Market?

Yesterday while I was interviewing a candidate to join Broadvox, I was asked the simple question “How big is the market for C4 IP and GO!VBX?” What makes the answer interesting is to understand the target markets and underlying technologies...

Holding Fast

Going into the weekend I already knew the recipe of the week, which was a good thing, all things considered. After returning to Dallas late Thursday night I came down with the flu. Generally, speaking not much slows me down...

Connecting at Enterprise Connect

Next week during  Enterprise Connect, Frank Grillo, Executive Vice President of Implementation and Product Marketing, will represent Broadvox and Cypress in discussing if a multinational enterprise wanted to eliminate all or most of its premises-based communications equipment and deploy a...

Excellence and Killing the Monkeys

To succeed in a competitive environment and difficult economy, it is important to hire and retain excellence. When a merger takes place, one inherits unknown talent and determining who has the characteristics needed to succeed takes time to assess. However,...

VAD and Waffles

I wasn’t sure of what to fix this weekend as I needed to smoke some salmon for next week’s national sales meeting. All of the Broadvox and Cypress Communications sales personnel will be in Dallas meeting each other for the...
