August 8, 2018

Practically every year since year 2000, one of my companies DIDx Inc has showcased services with an ITEXPO booth and given back to the IP communications community as some type of sponsor. We are hooked on the quality of presentations, the IDEA showcase, the way the event continues to include all the players in voice, video, security, data, AI, blockchain, and more. ITEXPO is the reason that many of us have experienced great success in sales, customer retention and vendor collaborations as well as knowledge sharing and rolling out new features and partnerships.

At the 2018 ITEXPO, we met some truly stellar people from highly respected companies that I'd like to highlight here with their 2018 accomplishments, and we know they will be back January 29 - February 1, 2019 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. 

Telefonica's España Global Account Sales Guillermo Ulmos and his colleague discussed with us their impressive SMS coverage and ever-increasing quality and expansion or radioelectri spectrum.

June 11, 2018

The Bitfury Group and First Block Capital, on January 11, 2018, announced they had invested in Emercoin and would support the ground-breaking provider of blockchain solutions and services for customers around the world. 

At OpenSIPS Summit, May 2, 2018, Mr. Khovayko pf Emercoin Group talked about real implementations of blockchain in every day life and how blockchain can be used for VoIP and user security. It's all about evolve, emerge, Emercoin.

Mr. Khovayko understands that people want to study real implementations in real life using blockchain that make a positive difference.

Where is the Money in Communications Platform as a Service

March 13, 2018

How can today's wholesale carriers, operators and service providers meet the needs of those hanging on to PSTN and such while at the same time, meet the needs of those who have let go?

CPaaS is an acronym that is trending as big as "blockchain." Trends make us a little crazy wanting to get involved without really understanding how they work and what we can get out of them for ourselves and for our customers and other VIP.

We have to keep in mind the security matters for special customers like governments and medical institutions, the red tape in huge organizations and also the nimbleness of new mash-ups (as old as that word feels already today). How do you change the way your current and potential customer sees you...

Cloudonix CTO on How Contextual Communications Saves $ and Time

March 6, 2018

Eric Klein, Cloudonix COO and author of The One: A Cruise through the Solar System, is the contextual communications expert that I interviewed at ITEXPO 2018. Automatically, I thought this must have something to do with recognition of people’s tone and other nuances of voice that we use to understand each other’s communication… kind of like what James Tagg, ex-CTO of Truphone and founder of the Penrose Institute, Hacklands and Basic Intelligence Token (BIT) talked about at Cluecon 2017. When I asked Eric if my guess was correct, he responded with a description of use cases that includes the tech behind it and the way it makes solving customer service challenges big time.

He says, “We have one customer here in the USA that is running about 5 million devices on a very small footprint.

How to be the #1 Managed Service Provider MSP

February 20, 2018

May I introduce you to SP Homerun Inc Chief Thought Leader Joshua Feinberg? He presented on the topic "How MSPs, Hosted and Cloud Providers Can Choose the Right Niches and Avoid Commodization" at ITEXPO 2018 in FT Lauderdale. He explained the differences among a VAR, MSP, collocation company and cloud service providers.

"The lines between them have never been blurrier," he says. 

Jeff Pulver to Present at ITEXPO 2018 BlockChain

February 2, 2018

Retro Jeff Pulver and friends from VON show 2007...see anyone you know?!

Jeff Pulver, who I can't help but follow every direction he takes because his name is one of the first I heard when I began playing with VoIP in the middle school classroom where I taught English, is known as the father of VoIP. He is chairman of several exciting startups and will present at the ITEXPO 2018 co-located BlockChain conference. He is chairman of Alchemist, a full-service blockchain advisory and investment company, specializing in token sales and end-to-end product development of blockchain applications. Alchemist, BTW, has been founders, advisors or investors in over 25 ICOs with a total market cap of over $80B, behind preeminent projects like Ethereum, tZERO, Lisk, Bancor and ZCash.

Can't wait to hear him and the other inspiring industry leaders like him during the Blockchain conference and all ITEXPO 2018 co-located conferences.

190 million people use Quora | you should, too

January 24, 2018

Using Quora 5 - 10 minutes per week in a meaningful way is destined to be much better for your business than the same time spent on Facebook, in my opinion. It is not as cool though, right. Quora, which BTW is worth $1.8 billion according to TechCrunch, offers an opportunity for all of us to learn, teach, build our brand recognition, and gain industry respect. 

Type in "What is blockchain used for besides Bitcoin?" in Google search, and the first answer is a Forbes magazine article highlighting an awesome answer by on Quora.

When Will eSIM Replace GSM and Enable Stressfree Communication

December 21, 2017

Well, I don't really see how it can be stress-free because Internet is not always dependable anywhere. Will the SIM card as we know it today cease to exist and instead people will become accustomed to instant virtual numbers as needed over networks of all types, making worldwide travel and stressfree communication the standard?

Virtual number, direct inward dialing and network technology are all different now than they were in say, the late 1990s. I remember when all I could get was CDMA in the US which meant I was situation-normal-all-messed-up from 2002 - 2010 even while traveling for DIDX in Europe, Middle East and Asia. I had to keep the same phone number no matter where I moved unless I used a virtualphoneline and routed it via FreeWorldDialup or something like that.

Can Twilio API Interact with a Pager? Rocking the Pager Array!

December 19, 2017

Who still uses pagers in 2017 and who will continue? Why? Medics, emergency responders and people who dig older technical devices like pagers, ham radios, rotary telephones, old typewriters and such. They use them for enhanced privacy, security, old school feel, hipster addiction, and so on.
