Go Abroad

The last year or so has seen a fair amount of agent interest in global connections. The world is flat, right? Globalization and all that?

ACC Business - International MPLS with only 1 node in the US
AboveNet - Dark fiber and big pipes in Europe
Smoothstone - Hosted VoIP layered on any MPLS network in over 23 countries.
Masergy - its MPLS backbone that can go into the Amazon Jungle.
inContact - can manage international call centers for customers.

Super Charging the SIP Trunk

March 17, 2011

I was on a panel about Supercharging the SIP Trunk Sales by Broadvox. It sounded similar to the panel I did at CVX West 2010 on Upselling the SIP Trunk sale.

My EarthLink Strategy

March 4, 2011

When I analyze the four CLEC components of the new EarthLink Business, I wonder what Atlanta will do with it.

Deltacom had a huge fiber network (IFN) that essentially went under-utilized. In my experience, many employees did not know about IFN. Assets like lit buildings, collocations, colo gear, and the fiber maps are crucial to revenue generation from those hard cost assets.
