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.

Data Center Certs

May 6, 2011

I am working on a data center project for a client. Evaluating data centers is kind of funny, especially the certifications. SAS70, ISO, LEEDS and PCI Compliance.

I don't think people even understand that SAS70 means that a CPA has audited the procedures and processes to ensure that there are indeed written processes in place and that at least some of them are followed. Now some of you will argue you with me about this, but the reality is, my evaluation is pretty accurate.
