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

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.

Programmable SIMs for IoT, How DIDs Fit in and Alexa Fun

May 29, 2016

"Twilio ramps up mobile play with programmable SIMs for IoT and handsets with T-Mobile," says Ingrid lunden at TechCrunch. The idea behind Twilio’s programmable wireless is to use SIM data instead of reliance on WiFi, bluetooth and other networks, so that programmers can build apps on the go using Twilio’s network and now ... data / Internet.

People can more easily bring their own devices, not monitored by their office network, and thus, they will have their own Internet with them all the time.

David Bowie Even Affected 100s of Kids and Me to Reinvent Ourselves

January 19, 2016

MP3 before CBS Interactive took over? David Bowie's BowieNet? I'm 60 years old now and looking back at the hundreds of 13-year-olds and me...we were avid lurkers, listeners, collaborators and reviewers over Internet. We wrote music reviews and felt that we got to know technology visionaries, students in over 18 countries including Australia, Germany, Japan and Pakistan; world wide musicians, business owners...a real blast.
