A Game of Chicken

Some weekends it is tough to cook a dish that I can turn into a recipe. For example, my favorite dish I made on Sunday, rigatoni pasta with beef shanks. This required braising the beef shanks for three hours with...

Sweet News

Obviously, given that it was Thanksgiving weekend, I did a fair amount of cooking, however, not on Thanksgiving Day. Since Gay and I were dining alone we agreed that fixing an enormous meal was just not worth it. Instead I...

Who is Servicing Your Customers?

Segmenting the businesses by small, medium and large has often been a source of disagreement. However, one thing we know to be true. Small businesses are the engine that drives our economy. As such it is worth noting that there...

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...

Follow Me on Tweeter

Yesterday Texas Governor Rick Perry implored attendees at Right Online, a conference for conservative bloggers and social networkers, to follow him on “Tweeter”. Aside from the incorrect naming of the site, it is indeed interesting that nearly every candidate running...

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...

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...

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...

STUNned Unnecessarily

It is not often that I hesitate to cover a topic in this blog. I have also not been afraid to name names when necessary. However, a most unusual thing happened yesterday and for the first time, I am...

Pumping up Meatloaf and Traffic

Every dish I made this weekend could have been the recipe of the week. However, on Friday, I decided that the winning dish would be something I have never made, usually did not like and never understood. My decision...

What will be the Buzz?

I am attending IT Expo in Miami this week and participating in three panel discussions. I know mostly what I will be talking about but I wonder what will be the leading topics of the show. Last year Nortel,...

Happy New Year!

The holidays were full of food, glorious food. While I apologize for the length of time without a blog or a recipe, I'll make up for in the weeks to come. First food...the holidays began with more homemade bacon,...

Previously I have stated that Broadvox has successfully completed interoperability testing (IOT) with more equipment manufacturers than any other ITSP. That is still true. In fact, this year's IOT list is very impressive with the addition of Avaya, Mitel,...

The Nortel Effect?

At least two analysts are now predicting a drop in VoIP/SIP Trunking growth for enterprise customers.  This was not surprising as I reached the same conclusion some months ago. Using my limited cognitive abilities, I did not see how...

We are the Champions..We are Agnostic!

Most days this is less a blog and more an assessment or statement about the IP Community. Today, it is a blog or web log or what happened to me lately. Yesterday I received the following call: "Hi, is...
