Hiccups here, but Collaboration Rocks in IP Communications

I had a few hiccups in the last six months which I determined not dwell on much: dislocated shoulder (work travel injury), car wreck resulting in totaled car and minimal injuries, and surprising company changes and experiences.

But I'm back on stronger than ever, loving your and our global industry of IP communications!

I'm not really everywhere, but I do recognize certain professional qualities and features among global IP communications-related companies and those who can help them:

Excellence in customer service
Innovative but at the same very practical services and products
Global reach
Ability to explain anything well, keeping in mind a variety of learning styles, and those who speak ESOL
Ability to use criticism of one's company to better one's company

Thanks for the nice compliments, Jaymie Scotto & Associates:

Super Technologies, Inc. since 1999 has always included in its mission to recognize and encourage companies in our industry who exhibit the qualities listed above.

Get involved with Internet Telephony online and offline!

Since 1998, INTERNET TELEPHONY has been a powerful force in the IP communications space. That's one year before our company Super Technologies, Inc. started up.

Its product-focused editorial creates a platform to put readers in the frame of mind to think about evaluating and purchasing products. It's a big favorite worldwide among early adopters, entrepreneurs, incumbents, wireless operators and more in the IP communications-related industry.

INTERNET TELEPHONY boasts more than 225,000 readers each month* and offers strong online impact with its accompanying website, TMCnet, which attracts nearly three million unique visitors each month, according to Webtrends. We at DIDX have always been impressed with the interaction promoted, the quality of the advertisements and articles and decided last yeart to sponsor an advertisement on a monthly basis.

I'm copying the following from an email I received this morning that gives you a glimpse of the June 2009 issue:

The IP-Enabled Contact Center
IP-enabling the contact center continues the revolution that started when computer intelligence was first applied to call centers in the computer telephony era of the 1980s and 1990s. The IP-enabled contact center brings many new features and capabilities including Unified Communications, and essentially converts your entire organization into an extended call center. Benefits include reduced costs, enhanced visibility, supervision, and all-around management. The flexibility of IP communications allows for multiple configurations of contact centers, such as the typical hybrid VoIP/circuit-switched center, single-site/multi-site VoIP, home based agents, and off-shore outsourcing based on VoIP connections.

Designing the Mobile Enterprise
Unless you're starting a totally new operation, supporting your increasingly mobile workforce typically requires you to work with your existing equipment and services. Fortunately, there are now many ways to project advanced IP PBX and business functions out to road warriors and other roaming employees.

Many carriers and service providers don't quite realize that they're in the business of accurately billing customers. Their lapses in this area made possible a whole industry, Telecom Expense Management. But many companies now exist with advanced products and services that not only can help service providers, but take the concept of billing to a whole new level.

Location-Based Services
Location-Based Services (LBSs) are becoming increasingly popular, perhaps the most familiar being those involving navigation, e.g. Google Maps for your Phone or Nokia Maps. And there are such things as geo-tagging photos and mobile social networking. The original LBS was E911 service, mandated by the FCC. Nearly all present-day LBS applications are based on GPS or other workarounds, not on operator provided location services.

Open Source Selection Criteria
Open source telephony has revolutionized the world of small- and medium-sized business communications. Digium's Asterisk platform was the first cost-effective way to provide big-enterprise telephony functionality to smaller organizations. While the basic versions of such software is free, business users will want to deal with companies that provide support and additional features for a reasonable fee.

Note that TMCnet is a media partner for *Cluecon 2009 and Digium Asterisk World, conferences that focus with emphasis on open source developers but also entrepreneurs and more. See and Both are extremely effective experiences.

Gravity Wants to Bring us Down?

More is not always better at work, in love, in money, in sex, in food, in drink, in anything. Even if the glass is half empty, at least there's something there. Make the best of it. Lesson to self and anyone else who cares to read... ;-)

Watch the video, read the lyrics, and add on your Facebook if you like!

By John Mayer

Is working against me
And gravity
Wants to bring me down

Whoa I'll never know
What makes this man
With all the love
That his heart can stand
Dream of ways
To throw it all away

Whoa Gravity
Is working against me
And gravity
Wants to bring me down

Oh twice as much
Ain’t twice as good
And can't sustain
Like one half could
It's wanting more
It's gonna send me to my knees


Oh twice as much
Ain’t twice as good
And can't sustain
Like one half could
It's wanting more
It's gonna send me to my knees

Oh gravity
Stay the hell away from me
Oh gravity
Has taken better men than me
Now how can that be?

Just keep me where the light is
Just keep me where the light is
Just keep me where the light is
C’mon keep me where the light is
C’mon keep me where the light is
C’mon keep me where keep me where the light is

Love ya!

Praise that Makes a VoIP Company's Heart Warm

I am copying an email that I just received where a wholesale client (industry giant) of DIDX is recommending an industry friend to use DIDX. I have replaced the actual name of the company they refer with "Company X" and left out the name of our lovely current client.

Here we go...

"I want to make an introduction to Suzanne who is the CEO of DIDx. See: This is who we uses for our callin numbers and I highly recommend them as a solution for your company. Here's what I can say about her/them.

We have had a multi-year relationship with them and they are trustworthy.
Suzanne is very responsive to our needs.
Their web portal is superior to any other DID providers.
They have broad availability of numbers.
They have a real time API which makes it efficient to purchase and assign DIDs.

I recommend you work directly with them for your DID needs."

Besides friends and family, the above is what I live for... working hard/smart with our team to be productive and see the rewards gained by our clients and have them refer others to us! We love you, "industry giant."
