BlinkMind Video Conferencing Reviewed, Love it

May 19, 2009

Video conferencing... what are the first thoughts that come to mind? It's too expensive, it takes too much bandwidth. We don't need it. On the flip side, I have come to the conclusion that it is a must in the mix of plans businesses have for staying in touch with competitors, suppliers, clients, and business partners along with audio telephony, instant chat, email, and conference face to face.

Monetize your IP Communications for a Net School Group

May 5, 2009

I feel certain that the readers of this blog are the real telephony experts, early adopters, think tank types, not me, so that is why I am asking you to check this request from a school on the web group. 

They are looking for a system where people can call in from a cell phone line in El Salvador. Their call would be answered by inputting a PIN #.

Then they could have an option to listen to voice mail prompts--questions or multiple choice, respond and playback their recording. If these files could be saved as .wav files that would be best.

So Many Hits on the FreeSWITCH Post! Interest in HD Conferencing

April 28, 2009

It was simply a matter of friendship but also the strong interest on the part of several thousand members of DIDX that encouraged me to interview Anthony Minessale and Brian West of FreeSWITCH™ yesterday in podcast format. I didn't realize how many would listen in. Some asked for more information especially about the HD conferencing progress.

Just a two letter prefix "HD" to telephony is a hit around the globe. Anthony explains in an article on FreeSWITCH™ site the original definition, history, and technology of HD.

Need a Marketing Guru for your IP Communications Co.?

April 27, 2009

I am the luckiest person on earth sometimes to be surrounded by so many positive and inspiring persons in the IP communications industry, from open source developers to entrepreneurs to early adopters and we can't leave this group out... those marketing experts. But Jaymie Scotto, Michael Corr, and Ilyssa Miller's successful efforts in the last area moved me to get an interview recorded at didx.net/podcast.

I met Jaymie online when I asked a question about how to use the Deal Center for Comptel 2007. I was expecting a curt, probably rude answer, but instead was told in a few kind words what to do and even a phone call to guide me through.
