Where No Man Has Gone Before

NASA announced this week that it was shutting down its last mainframe which generated a few memories. The first mainframe computer that I ever worked with was an IBM 360. Granted, I was not allowed to touch it, but after...

There Can Be Only One

At first I thought cooking this weekend would be light. We ate out Friday and I was looking forward to having lunch at one of my favorite restaurants on Saturday. However, that all changed when I decided to make Pretzel...

Unified Communications Most Important Feature

The week was very busy for Broadvox and many of our partners. We were in Miami for the East Coast version of ITEXPO. The crowd was bigger, the sessions attended by larger audiences and the discussion points varied. But like...

An Imperfect Storm

An Imperfect Storm Last year after complaints by a European carrier that new services offered by Google were making it impossible to accurately predict traffic requirements which drive network expansion, I noted the need for Google and others to coordinate...

Mixing it Up, the Good

I didn’t cook much this weekend as it turned out to be a weekend of leftovers. Friday, we ordered Mexican food and since neither of us eats very much we had quite a bit leftover. As a result, I made...

How do You Iron Chef?

This past weekend was very interesting as I did a home work assignment for one of my wife’s students. Gay teaches at a small college in Dallas that has a culinary school. One of the tests is to look at...

To Purchase, Subscribe or Punt

I filled out a questionnaire last week that had as a question the supposition that PBXs were going the way of the dodo bird. Cloud computing and hosted communications are viewed as making hardware purchases extinct. I do not hold...

A Refreshing Bit of News

Happy New Year! My goodness but it feels like it has been weeks since I wrote this blog. Yet, I find myself wondering how to start off 2012. Although, it is a Wednesday, I do think I should share a...

Video Conferencing: an Arrow for the UC Quiver

Time after time analysts have incorrectly forecasted the seminal event for creating major pull for video conferencing. Earlier, this year, I indicated that the sales and growth trend for the market seems to be on the right path. Video conferencing...

Do You Want SIP Trunks with That?

Apparently, since the merger of Broadvox and Cypress Communications, I have written more blogs on Unified Communications than SIP Trunking. I was a bit surprised but shouldn’t have been. Unified Communications (UC) does not require SIP Trunking. In addition to...

Cranberries, Ahead of the Day

After a quiet weekend of with little cooking last week, this one was cooking at a torrid pace. Friday, we enjoyed London broil marinated with olive oil and garlic. Saturday was the day of the smoker. I cured and lightly...

Broadband Selection Criteria

Since I did a series covering the selection criteria for determining your broadband needs and provider, I know some of you missed a blog or two and don’t have the entire list. The seven questions follow. To get the answers,...

We interrupt this Count

Yesterday, the US Senate defeated an attempt to block the pending Net Neutrality rules. The bill was defeated by a 52-46 vote. This was an important vote since a similar bill to block the implementation of the rules was passed...

Mobility and Unified Communications

There has been a growing pool of people discussing the end of the desk phone. Well I am not one of them. The desk phone continues to have its benefits. It is inexpensive, easy to install and manage, has a...

Poke Me but is that a Book

I am on vacation this week and for that reason the blog is a little late today. Cooking is a little difficult from a hotel room but if you have this for while you know I am going to make...

No Surprises Here

Although, I did not expect to speak during COMPTEL, it proved to be an interesting discussion regarding how current telecom trends are impacting merger and acquisition activity. Clearly, M&A activity in telecom cannot be boiled down to a single issue...

Dried and True

Although it seems as if I didn’t do much cooking this weekend, when I include all meals, it was pretty busy. The real problem is that I didn’t make anything new. There are times when I am interested in eating...

Just Hurry Up and Die

During IT Expo this week in Austin, I participated in several panels and gave a couple of presentations. The subject areas were the usual suspects, hosted communications, SIP Trunking, Unified Communications, Communications as a Service, etc. But what really got...

Branding, Brand Management and Winning

Yesterday during IT Expo, the first annual CMO Summit was held for about 100 marketing executives attending the show. The first speaker, (whose name was not on the invitation), spoke well but missed the mark for many of us. First,...

Interesting Pizza

It has been two weekends since I posted a food blog and the list of consumed item would make this blog a bit too long. So, let’s focus on the really good stuff. To be different today, I am going...

Virtualization Technology Adoption

It has long been accepted that SMBs have adopted virtualization technologies or cloud computing at a faster rate than enterprises. It is for that reason that most hosted communications companies focus on SMBs as their target customer base. A recent...

Slow, Steady and Fast

Crazy weekend for food, it was, even for me. I was on the road all of last week in Nashville for ILTA 2011 and Chicago for Channel Partners. In Nashville, I ordered hot fried chicken which is quite popular in...
