National Harbor: In the Bubble

August 17, 2016

More than one person mentioned how National Harbor looks like a town in a bubble or a movie set. As the CPEv show wraps up, here are highlights.

It wasn't UCaaS after UCaaS after UCaaS. It was broken up.

Show Wrap Up: Too Much Reckless Behavior

August 17, 2016

As we wrap up the CP Evolution show in DC, my reflections have not been good. I will wrap up the show in a later post, but I need to get this off my chest. This show was an alcohol fueled bachelor party filled with scuffles, drunks, frustration and even sexual harassment.

This wasn't your fraternity reunion.

Where Are We Now? Ode to the Agent

August 9, 2016

After the news hit (for some on Friday night, for the rest on Monday morning about ScanSource buying Intelisys), where does that leave everyone? That has been the big question on everyone's mind.

Do the sub-agents get screwed in the ScanSource deal?

What Changes?

The Distributor Side of Things

August 3, 2016

A recent discussion on LinkedIn around my blog about what Master Agencies call themselves has been ongoing. It even continued with live comments at the CompTIA event in Fort Lauderdale.

Why You?

This was another Me-too week in press releases. It was ILEC SD-WAN week with announcements from AT&T, CenturyLink and Verizon. It was another handful of VoIP product launches. It was a handful of notifications that various master agencies inked agreements with UCaaS and other vendors.

The INCOMPAS Mission

April 13, 2016

INCOMPAS still has a mission in DC. At the east coast show in Washington, FCC Chairman Wheeler came to talk to the association and its members with a message that we still need Competition.

He says that as Charter is set to eat two cablecos to become almost as large as Comcast. After AT&T just bought DirecTV.

What Happens in Vegas

March 17, 2016

At the Channel Partners Expo in Vegas, rumors are running wild. Metaswitch-Genband being settled in patent court. Polycom-Mitel cuz money.

Another Broadsoft client gets bought. MagicJack (yes, magicjack) decides to over-bid in order to not be the bridesmaid again.

What Are They Feeding Enterprise?

March 9, 2016

After a 27 hour trip to Enterprise Connect, I can safely say that we have an unqualified me-too business. Video conferencing and collaboration - now called meetings and workflow - were printed on every booth. Here is what I saw.

Cisco demonstrated Spark, which I thought was for SMB, but is being pitched to Enterprise especially with its big hook into Salesforce.
