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...

Heart to Heart, Food and Money

You know I have to cook on Valentine's Day, especially when it comes on a weekend. Most of you are fortunate in that going out to dinner is a favor to your spouse. My wife considers going out to...

Searching for IP Services - Part II

I had hoped to have similar reviews of the SIP Trunking offerings between AT&T and Verizon. However, it is not possible without a phone call to Verizon. I didn't have time to do that so I'll go with what...

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%...

On the Hunt for Good Food and IP Services

This weekend was a bit out of the norm for me as I decided it had been some months since I researched some local eateries. The result of this is that I usually do not cook when conducting such...

The State of Telecom

Tonight President Obama will give his first State of the Union Address. Most of the address will be about subjects driven by the politicians and media: The war in Afghanistan, the withdrawal from Iraq, the now on life support...

What was the buzz at IT Expo?

In reviewing the sessions and talking to many of the exhibitors, it was impossible to say what was on the minds of the attendees. With regard to TMC and the event organizers, it was a little bit of this...

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,...

The Top 5 Most Ridiculous Things I Have Ever Heard

I have been in telecommunications for nearly thirty years and it seems that every year I hear yet another ridiculous forecast regarding future behavior or technology. It seems we can always find a way to overstate or overhype just...

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...

Adtran, Jawbone and the SIP Trunking Market

Adtran held an interesting partner event this week in Huntsville, Alabama. Broadvox was invited to attend as we are one of their SIP Trunking service providers. I went with relatively modest expectation and no specific agenda. Upon landing I...

Smokin' and the FCC

My weekend was fantastic! Great food was eaten and my new smoker was delivered. 84 inches of smoking prowess, nearly 800 pounds of steel and 3269 square inches of cooking surface. Okay back to the food, we had a...

Getting Jerked Around...

The weekend in Dallas was not its usually warm sunny self. The weather was cold, cloudy and sometimes wet. However, it did not deter me from cooking Jamaican Jerk chicken. The reason for cooking the chicken originally arose when...

HD Voice...

It didn't take long for me to hear that a discussion of the market viability for HD voice was a bit ahead of the game. Most readers don't know what HD voice is. So here is a primer for...

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...

Scallops and the State of IP

A busy weekend for food as usual with fried chicken on Saturday, omelets Sunday morning and Scallops with Cheese Sauce and pasta Sunday afternoon. While I have yet to share my fried chicken recipe or the omelet for that...

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,...

The World Is Your Oyster

Oysters were the central food on Saturday. I made oyster po' boys accompanied with oyster soup. I knew the po' boy would be good but the soup was fantastic. It took me a little while to decide on the...

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...

Mashed Potatoes with where is the IP?

As usual, I ate well this weekend. I did forget to mention that two weeks ago I made my first corned beef from scratch. I found the recipe I used a bit curious in that it mentioned 3 hours...
