Vonage Picks Up Another One

August 20, 2015

Broadsoft is losing customers steadily. Vonage bought its third Broadsoft shop today with the announcement it is acquiring iCore for $92M. "The purchase price represents approximately 1.3 times estimated 2015 iCore revenues." [pr]

"iCore sells its solutions primarily through its large, direct field sales force, adding significant scale and a national footprint to Vonage's existing sales force.

Lessons from the AshleyMadison.com Hack

August 19, 2015

In case you live in a cage, a month ago a hacker group broke into Avid Life Media systems and commandeered all of their data. That's right - ALL.

ALM owns a couple of dating sites, most notably AshleyMadison.com which has the tag line: Life is short; have an affair. The hackers were mad that ALM is basically scamming its users.

Integra Expands With Fiber Buy

August 18, 2015

Integra is in the process of re-invention. Integra re-organized and revived the Electric Lightwave brand. CEO Kevin O'Hara was replaced by a board member and the HQ moved to Vancouver. But it looks like it will stick with its fiber first focus.

The VoIP/UC Round Up # 2920

August 16, 2015

MetTel's Gary Gluzman has a 2-part look at UC. He mentions Glip and Slack, which are taking off, but I think that much of the new app collective - WhatsApp, snapchat, even Slack - are just replacements for AOL chat - and honestly have not added much to the equation.

I recently explored how one client company used Slack. Everyone liked it; however, it didn't really work.

Fiber Play: NTELOS Bought by Shentel

August 13, 2015

It is all about fiber. Whether it is fiber-to-the-home or fiber lit buildings, the bankers love the word fiber. (I will refrain from jokes about constipated personalities here.)

CenturyLink keeps announcing fiber-to-the-home plans.

One Picture

August 11, 2015

"Organizations looking to capture the attention of their customers have become increasingly reliant on video, graphics and photography as part of the marketing arsenal," writes the CMO Council. Is it because we are more visual - or because the only thing we slow down for is a cat meme?

The CMO Council report, From Creativity to Content, is about the role of visual media in story-telling. A lot of the reason for visual media - (photos, video, illustrations, infographics and animated gifs - goes beyond "a picture is worth a thousand words". It has to do with Getting Attention.

A to Z: Alphabet and Zirtual

August 11, 2015

Google re-organized yesterday. Without a rumor about it escaping beforehand. (It shocked even Fred Wilson.) So the re-org puts Sergie and Larry in charge of Alphabet, the new holding company that now owns Google and all of the other stuff. Health, Labs, investments come out from under Google and full under Alphabet.

An Afternoon of VoIP News

August 5, 2015

Vitelity, a VoIP, SMS and Fax-over-IP provider, got bought by Onvoy. Onvoy got bought by Zayo. Zayo spun it off as a part of another Zayo entity (CII or Communications Infrastructure Investments).

Onvoy provides tandem and transit, wholesale VoIP, hosted PBX, long distance, SS7/database services, and call management solutions, including directory assistance and operator services. [TMC]
