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.

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.

Greg Giagnocavo from the Classroom to Communications over Internet Innovation

December 11, 2012

ITEXPO East and West are events that not only place us amongst scores of productive business and technical development opportunities, but they also introduce us to some of the most inspiring technology and communications entrepreneurs and thought leaders. For example, does anyone remember Classroom Connect in 1994, a really cool educational startup with a website? I do. I was a teacher, and I discovered their website after I bought a Tandy computer, a phone line, and a dialup Internet account that year for my 8th grade English and Gifted Studies classroom.

Not long ago, Olle Johansson of Edvina AB updated one of the most versatile and useful VoIP groups on Facebook with this comment, "I just noticed that Xorcom have released SIP phones. Any experiences in this group?

Wall Concerts and Mobile Wallets are Things that Use DID

August 16, 2011

Just when we think the phone number (via direct inward dialing) is dead, gone, out of here, in comes really cool uses such as the wall concerts at Bloc Jam (which my friend Michel Vaillancourt at JKL 5 Group told me about) and mobile payments over DID via Paytoo mobile wallet beginning November 2010 with millions of users around the world. In this case, BlocJam is a musical improvisation game played via direct inward dialing, live from the street. When you call, you are given a sequence to compose your beats.

Once you have played around and created your composition, press the pound sign on your cell phone and there you go.
