Meet Saúl Ibarra Corretgé Who Will Present Multi-party Video Conferencing and Novel Way Bring it to the SIP World

April 29, 2017

Have you met Saúl Ibarra Corretgé? My first interaction with him online was when he "liked" my tweet I replied to his Twitter profile @saghul post: "Brian West summarized it well during a Cluecon talk: we in the communications industry don't communicate very well." BTW, Brian is a pretty wise guy, in a good way, and so is Saúl. Saúl is presenting "Jitsi, Open Source Conferencing" Day 1 of OpenSIPS Summit May 2, 2017 in Amsterdam. I'll be near front row ready to learn. 

Telnyx Dave Casem Interview - Democratizing the PSTN, Be Your Own Carrier

April 27, 2017

Telnyx is a key sponsor for OpenSIPs Summit May 2-5 in Amsterdam. I remember what a great job Telnyx did in its sponsorship for Cluecon and ITEXPO. Their business strategy comes across as uncontrived, focused and interesting. 

David Casem, their CEO and Co-Founder, shares insight on industry buzz terms like BYOC and UCaaS for 2017, how Telnyx fits in, what their Mission Control Panel and API enables, what is important in regards to SIP trunking and direct inward dialing, and how they make decisions in regards to which events like ITEXPO and OpenSIPs Summit to participate.

First Hackproof Wi-Fi, then Grab Some IP Communications

April 20, 2017

While most of TMCnet blog readers want to monetize IP communications, most of the world just wants to be able to use IP communications. It's less expensive than traditional telephony and sometimes free. Problem one can be not having access to network, bandwidth, and Internet service provision in general, or maybe the local ISP offers poor quality network. Problem two can be keeping that network hack-proof.

Having residential and business hackproof can be pretty crucial.

Communications Tech Development = Code + Human Resources > Enter OpenSIPs Summit 2017 Amsterdam

March 22, 2017

A big difference between a successful communications technology corporation, startup or project and a flop is the development of the solution behind it all. Development = code + human resources. Trust, experience and knowledge are the three must-haves in rolling out new products and services that customers, user members, and investors love. OpenSIPs offers all three to assist you with your current human resources or to hire new and the code that works, that adds new and improved features as innovative developers provide.

Like a Room without a Roof, Women in IP Communications

February 14, 2017

   








    

Pictured left to right and top down are some faces in VoIP: Yana Stamcheva, senior software developer at Atlassian; Jennifer Hashimoto, senior implementation manager at Caztel Communications; Kathleen King, public relations at FreeSWITCH; Celeste Mangani of Celeste Mangani of QXIP and HOMER; Mira Georgieva, president of Zoiper: not pictured but well-known in VoIP is Allison Smith, the VoiceGal!

A lot has changed since 1995 when I first tried Vocaltec's Internet Phone in the classroom full of 8th grade students. I was their English teacher. Four years later, I was putting in 15 hour work days with a VoIP startup called Super Technologies, Inc. with low cost or even free calling via something called Super Phone, very popular in India. 

Inspired and encouraged by people like Jeff Pulver, Rich Tehrani, Rehan Allahwala, (the other Super Technologies, Inc. and later DIDX co-founder), Jagdish Loganathan, Arslaan Ikram, Melinda and Herman Dewitt ...














The DID is Dead and T-Mobile Revived It

February 8, 2017

















The DID is dead? T-Mobile proves your phone number, your digits, your DID (direct inward dialing) are a hot commodity! Move over webRTC, IoT and big data. The traditional contact form is still around.















Why you would give up the chance to strut around in Middle Earth Barbie wear? Allison Smith asks.

November 23, 2016

#Thankful! What for? Being able to speak...well, not as well as Allison Smith. Being able to design software and apps with code, not as well as Mark Spencer or Floris de Vries.

If Your Employees Are Going to Watch Video Anyway, They Might as Well Be Watching Your Video

October 29, 2016

When was the last time that you read a memo and said to yourself, “Wow, that was a really great memo”?

Our inboxes are straining and the number of channels competing for our attention just seems to increase all the time. Which creates kind of an odd dilemma for internal communications staff—by rights, the stuff they have to say should have a massive impact on the company, but realistically, it’s all too easy to ignore.

Which is why I find it interesting that an increasing number of organizations seem to be turning to streaming video as a way of getting their own employees’ attention. It makes a certain amount of sense. I’d make a reference to the increasing number of Millennials in the workforce, but let’s be honest—we all like video.



Execution, Flexibility, Safety, Ease of Use Key to Digital Success - Lessons from Gitex 2016

October 22, 2016

The etisalat and Nissan Smart Car collaboration, the robot policeman, and James Baresse's presentation on three needs for digital payment system success are three of the many enlightening experiences at Gitex 2016 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. In summary, to see any technology, product, and service to success, the startup or industry giant must keep in mind that people want more convenience and simplicity and control, safety and security, and cost savings and rewards. Even nabbing one of these three must-have pairs can be the alpha to omega win.

Ahsan Saleem, DIDX CIO and Techistan reporter notes, "The telecom giant etisalat and Japan's Nissan Smart Car collaborate to keep the vehicle and its owners connected via a mobile application.
