Which “SIP” Does Your Network Speak?

As a good ol’ boy growing up in the Midwestern United States, I felt I needed a translator when I first visited the UK over 20 years ago (yikes!). Even though English was the primary language, the UK had different words for everyday items I thought were common. I knew soccer meant “football” in the UK, but I didn’t know that a cookie was called a “biscuit,” a truck was called a “lorry”, fries were called “chips,” and chips were called “crisps.” Boy, was I confused, especially with respect to my favorite food, “chips” – guess which one!

Sonus and Subsentio: Strengthening Security in Cloud Communications

Not Sure Why You Need an Enterprise SBC? Here are 5 Good Reasons Why You Do….

Enterprises are currently faced with a multitude of complexities as they make the evolution from legacy to IP-based unified communication infrastructures. To be successful, they need a well thought out plan to deal with concerns such as: compatibility of legacy equipment or protocols, centralized management of complex dial plan across different IP-PBX platforms, and when (and how) to introduce secure, new unified communication applications for their end customers and geographically diverse workforce.

Security Implications for Your Unified Communications

Leveraging Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) technology truly changes the way we think about communications these days. With SIP, unified communication (UC) applications become just another “data application” and without appropriate security measures in place, networks could be opened to bad actors exposing the business, technology, privacy and compliance to new attack threats.

Thinking About SIP Trunking? Here Are 5 Things to Think About First...

You may even be sold, sight unseen, and ready to sign on the dotted line.

5 Reasons Why SIP Trunking Just Makes $ense

Last week, I was talking to a few customers about the value of SIP Trunking and provided them with a copy of our SIP Trunking For Dummies book.  I always felt this book was a great source of information and amazingly we are coming up on the one-year anniversary of its first publication.
