Last week I wrote about HTML5 and its impact on apps. One other potential impact of HTML 5 is that it will be less important that your IT department “hands out” specific devices to its employees. I remember just a few short years ago that Dialogic (like many companies) was a Blackberry organization. It just so happened I had the luck of having the first employee in the company who wanted to put his iPhone onto the Dialogic network (yes, you know who you are Vaughn).

HTML5 and Its Impact on the Future Market

We just converted the last of our Flash graphics over to HTML5 on the Dialogic website. The difference is not discernible, as you can see below. But it got me to think more about HTML5 and its impact on the industry.

Net Neutrality Back in the Spotlight

July 17, 2012

It’s been about a year and a half since I last wrote about Net Neutrality and it is back in the spotlight again. Right before July 4th, Verizon filed a legal brief that argues the FCC regulations on Net Neutrality violate their free speech and that the FCC really doesn’t have the right to issue the regulations. The timing for this filing, right before July 4th, is likely not an accident. But how does one make the leap to free speech from Net Neutrality?

HD Voice Isn't Just for Making Better Phone Calls, Part 2

July 10, 2012

So if you want HD Voice in your network, what do you need to do?  From a phone call side, you need to make sure the phones you’re using support HD Voice and you need to make sure that the network you’re using supports HD Voice. In the case of the enterprise, that would mean the IP – PBX would need to support HD Voice and it would mean the phone sets would also need to support it. If you are using headsets to talk on a VoIP network, like I do at work, then these already support HD Voice.

HD Voice is Not Just for Making Better Phone Calls

July 3, 2012

Even though all we seemingly hear about these days in the communications industry (including many a time in this blog) revolves around wireless broadband, LTE, cool new tablets, and the ever increasing video usage from these smart devices, it’s important to remember that voice services still play a key role. The annual SpeechTEK conference is a good reminder of how important voice is. I will be speaking at this year’s event in August in New York about cloud-based HD Voice.
