Webinar on leveraging SIP in the Contact Center and win a Garmin Navigator!

September 21, 2007

For those of you that have been following our "Break Free" campaign, you'll know that last month we launched our series of webinars and whitepapers on how SIP can be leveraged in a range of enhanced applications.  Our plan is to show how a number of common applications are built using SIP and MSCML to control media server and media resources.  This month we are going to take a closer look at the IP Contact Center.

Building Applications with SIP - the IP Contact Center

The legacy call center has gone through a metamorphosis, emerging as the IP Contact Center which replaces the PBX and separate IVR and ACD systems and merges email and instant messaging into a new architecture that integrates these functions, leveraging Voice over IP technologies.

Recap and thoughts on Internet Telephony

September 13, 2007

I'm back in the office and as promised, thought I would share some observations from this week at Internet Telephony.  While I spent most of my non-meeting in the IP Communications Conference - Conferences SIP sessions trying to get a pulse on where the attendees and vendors were with the current state of SIP.  A few observations:

Security - it is just starting to hit everyone that for the dream to come true of distributed enterprises, work at home agents, and other applications that will realize the flexibility of SIP - security will be huge.

iPhone Shame?

September 7, 2007

I had an interesting experience today at lunch - for the first time since the new shiny iPhone was released, I saw someone exhibit "iPhone Shame" - that's the realization that in their rush to get the newest cool gadget, they really did overpay for their phone.  And even the manufacturer agrees!

This is how it goes:  Someone at the table notices the new iPhone and says "hey is that the new iPhone?".  The previously-proud owner says "yea" and pushes it under a napkin while everyone at the table thinks "boy I hope that poor sucker gets his $100 rebate"

What happened to Skype?

August 23, 2007

By now, everyone who cares has heard about the Skype outage (see: Skype Outage Article).  This is not another blog entry about reliability, peer-to-peer vs. centrally managed applications or about Skype's twisted use of other's PCs for their infrastructure.  Instead this is a discussion about popularity.

Video Telephony or Video Services

August 3, 2007

This last week I've been doing some reading and discussing with others the role that video will play in our daily lives and communications needs.  Just as background, we have two Tivos at home and the Slingbox that Jeff gave us at VON last year.  And yes, I have the mobile slingbox client loaded on my phone.

Since having and using Slingbox for the last year, I'm a convert and yes, I am convinced that people will pay for video on demand services via the Internet (both broadband and mobile).
