My Take on Stocks

November 10, 2010

So "BroadSoft Inc.(BSFT) shares climbed 43% after the voice-enabling software company reported third-quarter earnings that exceeded estimates," according to MarketWatch. Total revenue increased 22% year-to-year to $22.3 million; up 13% from the second quarter of 2010. License revenue increased 27% year-to-year to $12.9 million; up 22% growth from Q2 2010.

The Buzz around Hosted UC is certainly up, driven by such companies as Polycom and its PR machine.

Geckotech Acquired by M5

November 4, 2010

M6 powered Geckotech out of Chicago was acquired by VoIP pioneer M5 Networks. M5 is based in New York City with offices in Chicago (at least in 2008 when I was working their).

Geckotech made the 2009 and 2010 INC 5000 lists with 2009 revenue of $4.7M, up from $1.9M in 2006. Geckotech was founded in 2003 and has 14 employees.

M6 Migration

October 27, 2010

Apparently, this article produced a small bruha at Broadsoft Connections 2010 this week.  The service providers on M6 have a lot at stake - like all their customers. The M6 user group is a fairly vocal contigent as well.

It's a double-edged sword: M6 has features that BroadWorks does not and vice versa.

What I Learned From the Locknote

October 27, 2010

A keynote opens a conference and a Locknote closes a conference.

The Broadsoft Connections 2010 was opened by Wikinomics author Don Tapscott with his talk about the Digital Age. Our industry is aware that ubiquious broadband has changed the landscape of many businesses. The transparency that we have today (think blogs and WikiLeaks) means that nothing is really private.

This is paramount to me - obviously because I blog and occassionally get dirty looks for what I write -- but the Locknote was a panel of twitter experts - Tara Hunt, Joel Comm and Paul Chaney - being interviewed by Broadsoft CMO Leslie Ferry.

Add Some Skinny to Broadworks

October 26, 2010

Genband M6 platform is a softswitch that allows service providers to utilize Cisco IP phones running Skinny. The problem has been that Broadsoft, which bought Genband's M6 platform, has completed the process of adding the M6 feature set to the Broadworks platform. There are a bunch of M6 companies wondering what to do, because migrating customers from one platform to the new one (M6 to standard Broadworks) would be painful. (Thing re-configure every phone!)

Today, CommX merged with PressONE.

Day 1 Observations from Phoenix

October 26, 2010

I'm at the Broadsoft Connections 2010 user conference in Phoenix. The theme is Ignite Passion (for Hosted UC). These are some of my notes:

Broadsoft is pushing not just Hosted PBX but services they are calling CAAS (Communications-as-a-Service).
