Direct Inward Dialing, Not Termination is Where the $ is

October 3, 2008

Tons of people lately are emailing me asking for prices of DID/DDI on http://www.didx.net. The list of DID/DDI and the lowest rate is at http://www.didx.net/did, but even if one has only a wholesale research account (not in active mode), one can see a lot more, including choice of vendor, vendor quality 0-8, features such as number of channels and minutes included...

For example, USA DID are available in 244 area codes with prices ranging from 99 cent to $5.00 per month and as many as unlimited minutes and 20 channels. This range is available because the third party vendors choose how they wish to sell on DIDX giving buyers more than one choice.

Men and Women are Monetizing IP Communications

September 30, 2008

It just appears that the women are a little quieter. John Cirner, co-owner of a successful CLEC and Talkmotion.com, and his colleagues, Max Glucksmann  (DIDX integrator) and I had dinner one night during Astricon 2008. John and his partner Savoi asked why there were so few women presenting at voIP conferences and why not have a Women in voIP discussion panel at conferences. The panel could vary in types of expertise and background.

Several women were and are still being suggested on my personal blog and on Facebook, including:
Karen Campagna of Cisco
Jenny Callicott of Celtrek and Global Roaming
Debbie Grasso of Paetec
Dunia Campos of UltraCall
Catriona Harris. Lynda Starr, and Ilene Adler of Vantage Communications (blog)
Jaymie Scotto of Jaymie Scotto & Associates
Anne Coulomb of Avaya
Gayle Wolski who is key to publicity of VoiceCon
Allison Smith of the IVR Voice
Ilissa Miller of Jaymie Scotto & Associates
Connie Terwilliger of Voice Over Talent (expert on the older ISDN and voice)
Carrie Hartford of IPSMARX
Carolyn Schuk, the voIP Princess
Sheryl Breuker who knows everyone in the industry
Katherine Bagin of AT&T
Ginny Hutchinson of SpeakEasy
Helen Robison of Clarus Systems

What Do Conferences Do Right and Wrong?

September 26, 2008

After a whirlwind tour of global conferences in the past two years, I and many friends, colleagues, suppliers, clients and partners can easily elaborate on "Best Practices" and who's doing it right and wrong.

A list of the conferences that Super Technologies, Inc has sponsored, exhibited or presentated in and/or participated in any other way include: PTC, ITEXPO, EXPOComm, LinuxWorld, VON, Ecomm, CTIA Wireless, GTM, ITW, Interop Russia, Communicasia, Carriers World, Wimax World, ISPCON, CCMI, NXTcomm, Supercomm, Cluecon, Astricon, GitexITCN Asia with 127,000 attendees and 200 quality exhibitors, CEBIT, CES, Oman Conference, MECT, TCME Middle East, GSM 3G AfricaCOM, Voip China, and AsterConference. (I'll point to the corresponding URLs as soon as I have time. My flight is about to leave from Dallas.)
