The HD Voice News 2012 report is (finally) out. *Whew*

Tweet

Did I ever mention that I’m Editor-in-Chief of HD Voice News? (OK, not really a joke to anyone who regularly reads this blog).

“HD Voice 2012: Proliferation” is now available at TMCnet.com.  It was a much larger task to put together and edit than I anticipated, due to the rapid ramp in HD voice [...]

Digium does hardware–services next?

Tweet

Digium, the self-proclaimed “Asterisk Company,” is turning into the jack-of-all-trades company.  For Enterprise Connect in Orlando this week, the company has rolled out “the first” of a family of VoIP gateways.  Last month (well, more like two months ago), the company introduced its first IP phones at IT EXPO.  I’m betting a cloud services [...]

New mobile service: AT&T or Verizon?

Tweet

While I’ve had Sprint since forever, I’m in the process of reviewing other options.   Sure I’ve got “unlimited” data, but I’ve been paying the $10 extra for WiMax, but I’ve only used it a handful of times at best.  I have to pay more money to enable Wi-Fi tethering on my HTC Evo.

Tweet

I’ll be at Metaswitch Forum in Las Vegas from October 3 through October 6, so if you’re looking for an opportunity to brief face-to-face, this is it.

Coordination through the Metaswitch press people (Engage PR) is suggested, but not required.

And now, for something completely different on SBCs and PR firms…

Tweet

Anyone who KNOWS me, really knows me, knows that I get annoyed at PR firms.  I thought I had mellowed in my old age and really hadn’t been set off.  Then I get an email today…

SBC leader Acme Packet (www.acmepacket.com) used to have a very good PR firm.  I got regular briefings [...]

Metaswitch Forum 2011–The Power of "M”–but what about JAMES BOND?!?

Tweet

Theme for the upcoming Metaswitch Forum 2011 in Las Vegas is:  The Power of “M.” 

Uh hmm.

Now I’m nothing but an uncivilized American, but even I know that when we talk about the power of “M,” we’re talking James Bond’s “M.”   Even Wikipedia has “M” listed as James Bond!
