    It's Almost the End of 2011...

    … and what do I have to show for it? 

    It’s that time of the year when you curl up over a coffee to think of what’s been accomplished, and what is still to be done.

    2011 was a year of big learning for me. Wide learning, some might say.


    • You will never guess how much long distance fraud there can be in one weekend, from one hacked PBX.
    • AIN and hybrid networks are alive and well for toll free.
    • When you do traffic forecasting, make sure the customer is accurate.
    • There really are nice people at Verizon.
    • IP Trunking is always going to launch later than you expect it to. But now I’m ready.
    • Despite all I thought I knew about data cetres, electricity still screws with my mind.
    • Cloud networking is just a buzz word.
    • Cucumbers need 6 times the amount of space than you would expect.


    And that’s just the tip of the ice berg. :-D

    My biggest goal for 2012 is to pick up pen again and get this blog rocking. I know, I’ve said that before. But the more times I say it, it’s bound to take hold.



    HELP! I'm in Soft Switch Hell!!!

    I’m drowning in vendor information. I don’t even know if what I want to do can be accomplished with a single soft switch/media gateway device. I don’t even know if I know the difference between the two any more.

    My forehead is wrinkled and my eyes burn. I want a piece of carrier grade gear that i can partition for various wholesale type customers. I want to manage it (not me personally), and I want to provide all the CLEC type services off the back end of it.

    What have I gotten myself into?

    Someone, anyone, please point me in the right direction.
