InterOp InterNAP Rumor (is False)

May 12, 2011

At InterOp in Vegas this morning, there is talk that InterNAP shut down its network. It has closed its peering points and going to focus on its cloud strategy of data centers and managed services.  I'll have to work on confirming it.

UPDATE: My clients - at least 3 - who use InterNAP say that it is up and running still - even the peering points. So the rumor is false.

UPDATE from email:  Internap, AS22212, will be leaving NOTA on May 6, 2011.  

Why Accurate Paperwork is Necessary

May 12, 2011

I have hired salespeople that just don't want to do paperwork. Someone else should handle that why they do the "important work" of sales. I would buy into that if that superstar was closing a lot of deals or had a full funnel with a fantastic close ratio, but that is hardly ever the case.

Many salespeople don't like using CRM either, but that's a different blog post.

Schools and Libraries are Off Limits

May 12, 2011

Saw this notice today: "AT&T corporate policy prohibits Alliance Channel Solution Providers from selling AT&T services to E-Rate eligible customers (which includes all K-12 schools and public libraries). Do not engage in sales activity of any kind with E-Rate eligible customers."

That's interesting because almost all schools and libraries are E-Rate eligible (if they do the paperwork). So if Agents want to sell to schools and libraries, Agents will need to bring in a different carrier.

Losses and Growth

May 10, 2011

The only thing really growing is debt.

Clearwire grew revenue but also its losses.

PAETEC finished swallowing CavTel to get to ~$2B in revenue but with losses. And with just 54,000 business customers. (Cbeyond has more than 58,000). Margins are 18.4% according to Rob Powell.

Centurylink is getting hit with a lot of access line loss which is adversely affecting its revenue.

Fax over IP

May 6, 2011

According to David Hiers (moderator of the VoiceOps list), "At SIPNOC I found out that SIP Forum has a pretty big project going to get FOIP/T.38 fixed once and for all. [See here]." Fax over IP like HD Voice needs travel along a compatible network from end-to-end to work. That's why HD Voice works great for internal calls but breaks when you call your family on a cell phone or a landline. (Off-net).

Tele-Pacific Buys into Hosted

May 6, 2011

Tele-Pacific is buying its way into Hosted PBX with its acquisition of Telekenex. TelePacific will gain approximately 1,000 business customers and 122 employees along with the hosted PBX platform. Tele-Pacific will run Telekenex as a separate channel, which is a good thing.

This is a good move for Tele-Pacific as it continues to dominate its region with more services plus another data center.
