The VoIP Market Right Now

April 29, 2013

"The market for VoIP services has moved well beyond the early adopter stage to mainstream status in many developed countries. SIP trunking and hosted UC continue to heat things up, fueling growth," reports Diane Myers, principal analyst for VoIP, UC, and IMS at Infonetics Research.

According to the study, "Due to continued demand for enterprise cloud-based services, hosted VoIP and Unified Communications (UC) services revenue grew 17% in 2012 from 2011, the most of any segment."

The reality is that SIP Trunking jumped 83% because VoIP is a cheap dial-tone replacement.

Big Changes at Broadvox

April 14, 2013

Just over a year ago, big changes happened at Broadvox. Bruce Chatterley, who was CEO of Speakeasy until MegaPath absorbed Speakeasy and Covad, became President and CEO at Broadvox. As is often the case in telecom, top executives bring in their whole team. Chatterley hired Chris Gellos, who was head of sales at Speakeasy, to be EVP of Sales at Broadvox.

Is the Channel Too Lazy to Sell Cloud?

March 29, 2013

Talking with channel managers lately in the Hosted UC space, well, has been depressing to be honest. No one is having fun - or knocking it out of the park. Yes, there are pockets of success - mostly from verticals or niches (surprise!).

The UC Space Right Now

I was chatting with another industry blogger recently. We were discussing how there are a lot of VoIP Providers out there. I estimate it at over a thousand. However, I don't see the Hosted PBX space making huge strides.

VoIP in 2013

January 17, 2013

It's January and people are still making predictions about 2013. Dave Michels wrote a nice piece about the history of Level3's 3Tone service, which I was pretty familiar with due to four of my clients rushing into the void to sign up - just as Level3 was aborted the service. I view this move by Level3 as one reason that I don't see Jim Crowe as the visionary others do.

Today, we see VoIP Innovations rolling out a complete wholesale private label VoIP service.

The Pivot to Attractiveness

January 17, 2013

I spoke with Mike Cassidy at SUTUS this week. SUTUS is finally seeing success after years of trying to find its niche in the SMB PBX space. SUTUS had a couple of pivots along the way - and usually a new CEO to go with each pivot.

Now they are on the path to success due to stumbling upon a vertical.

Predictions for 2013

December 19, 2012

CenturyLink Biz has an ebook out with predictions for 2013 and beyond. M2M, mobility, cloud - all just mind blowing stuff . It's prediction time obviously. Let me say that 2013 can go a couple of ways - DC gets its collective act together to improve the financial situation or it doesn't.
