Letterman I am not

Okay so when you decide to do a Top 10 list you are suppose to start with number 10. This, of course, generates an increased level of interest and ends the count with a bang. I blew that since I...

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...

Red, White and ooVoo

As the Fourth of July is approaching with many on vacation, I’ll make this brief. I was wondering what I could find that would tie our country’s independence to IP Communications. Clearly, it wasn’t around during the Revolutionary war and...

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...

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...

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...

More on the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

In general, I have been too busy or disinterested to ever read a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM). I can now say, “That was a mistake.” It is well worth the effort to read relevant parts of the NPRM just...

Holy Massive Bureaucratic Report IP Man!

Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking adopted February 8, 2011 and released February 9, 2011 is one gigantic tome. Even the rules regarding commenting require a moment or two of thought, check out the following: Comment...

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...

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...

Teaching Old Dogs New Tricks

Consider that years ago attempting to market to SMBs was a very expensive proposition. The number of SMBs is in the millions and traditional mass marketing cost is in the hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars. With the advent...

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...

Pulled Plug and Pork

The weekend was a short one with me having to travel on Sunday. I considered not having a recipe this morning but that would have been wrong. Friday night we had Chinese takeout. Surprise! Yes sometimes we order in. Saturday,...

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...

Net Neutrality Makes the Evening News

Net Neutrality Makes the Evening News Sure, we in the IP community think net neutrality is a big deal. However, yesterday net neutrality hit the big time, the evening news. Although telecommunications is a very large industry employing millions of...

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...

Povitica, Latkes and IBM

Going into the weekend I had no idea as to what the recipe of the week would be. I didn’t have a hankering for anything and I hadn’t purchase anything that needed to be cooked. Friday, my wife made a...

What does this have to do with Broadvox?

It has been more than two years since I began writing this blog so I was a little surprised that the discussion regarding Level 3 and Comcast merited a “what does this have to do with Broadvox?" response. Just as...
