Africa Is on the Brink of a Unified Communications Revolution

For quite some time, VoIP telephony and Unified Communications tools (voice, instant messaging, video calls, audio conference, and presence combined into a single communication stream) have proliferated on many markets, and now it appears as though Africa too is on the brink of this communications revolution. With technology evolving so fast, businesses in developing areas of the world are catching on to the need to deploy robust communications tools.

By taking advantage of both VoIP and UC, companies benefit from cost savings and increased functionality which, in turn, improve business processes and boost productivity.

As the number of reliable Internet connections increases, so does the number of businesses that can leverage IP telephony. With that in mind, let’s take a look at two countries in particular—South Africa and Nigeria—and how VoIP and UC are making an impact there.

Goodbye Cloud Night! Hello Spring Races!

I’ve never had the experience of an internship. Back when I started, you’d work under somebody’s wing for a week a max and that was it. No real internships. And so, every time we have students in our office, like we did three days ago at Cloud Night, I get slightly curious and envious. 🙂 I wish I had that too. A company that would open their offices just for me, introduce me to its teams, show me what they do, treat me like a professional, pamper me a little bit. And all that for my own growth, which would eventually lead to the company’s growth. Looks like a pretty fair chance to me.

The Magic Of Seven – 7 Years Of VoipNow

From the dust of old centuries until today’s computer-driven and smartphone-glued society, seven has always been considered a magical number. Many believe in the power of seven, be they sorcerers or mathematicians, historians or, in the past decades, even psychologists. Seven days in the week, seven wonders of the world, seven primary colors, seven notes in the musical scale, seven ages of man, Miller’s law on human brain’s capacity of processing information, and the list can go on and on.

Enable BYOD For SMBs

Several days ago at WHD.global 2013, I gave a presentation on BYOD and I think it is worth sharing it with those of you who did not attend.

What the heck is BYOD, you might ask yourselves. 😀 Before anything else, it’s a pretty complicated name for a process that is quite simple. BOYD allows employees to use their own devices for business purposes.

VoipNow 3 – Amazon S3 Storage

Another interesting feature in VoipNow 3 is related to storage.

The industry has known many changes over the past years, but storage has remained a hot topic to the majority of Service Providers who consider scaling (read growing) their businesses.

Never Enough

Irrespective of how much storage space was available, sooner or later one would find herself / himself going out of space. This can apply to a personal computer, but also to the service provider’s environment when dealing with customer information.

VoipNow 3 – Extension Virtualization

An interesting new feature in VoipNow 3 is called extension virtualization. As it might prove useful in many cases, let’s review it. This feature is going to be available in all editions of VoipNow 3.

The basic idea is that we want to separate the phone (device) from the functionality stack, which is setup by the user (features offered by VoipNow).
