Digium Switchvox Telephones Announced To Much Fanfare

Posted by Randy Kremlacek on Feb 1, 2012 8:41:00 AM

Earlier today, Digium announced the the exciting release of a line of Digium business phones.  Previous to this announcement, Digium did not offer telephones, but rather utilized standard SIP phones provided by Polycom, Aastra, Snom, and Yealink amongst others, so this is big news.

The initial product line consists of the following:

2012 - A Breakout Year for Digium Switchvox

Posted by Randy Kremlacek on Jan 4, 2012 2:51:00 PM




Excuse me for bragging, but Digium, our leading business phone systems provider had an absolutely stellar 2011. For the past three years, I have been banging the drum about the value of business communications systems that use the telecom industry standard of SIP (Session Initiated Protocol). SIP-based systems are less expensive, don't require expensive licences and provide greater flexibility, as well as a very rosy future.

3Com NBX Service & Support Update

Posted by Randy Kremlacek on Dec 28, 2011 2:22:00 PM

During this slow time of the year, I thought it would be a good idea to update 3Com NBX owners on the status of product support for their PBX.

The NBX small business PBX product family has had a long, successful run over the last 12 years.  TeleDynamic has sold and supported the product since the very beginning in 1999.

12 Drummers Drumming

11 days of birds, expensive jewelry, single women, acrobatic aristocrats and bad musicians, and we end with banging on drums?  What I wouldn't give for a silent partridge and a glass of spiced rum about now.

Instead, VoIP is banging the drum hard for another new great technology.

On the 11th Day of Christmas, VoIP Gave to Me... PBX VoIP Integration

Eleven Pipers Piping!

I barely cleaned up after those acrobatic leaping lords and here come those unruly Scotts and their irksome bags of wind. Which reminds me:

Q. Why are bagpipers fingers like lightning?
A. They rarely strike the same spot twice.

Q. Why do bagpipers walk when they play?
A. To get away from the noise.

Q. How do you get two bagpipes to play a perfect unison?
A. Shoot one.

Q. What did the bagpiper get on his IQ test?
A. Drool.

VoIP, if only my Salesforce integration could be in perfect harmony with my business telephone system.

On the 10th Day of Christmas, VoIP Gave to Me... Business Phones

10 Lords a Leaping!

There is a theory that The 12 Days of Christmas carol has two levels of meaning: the surface meaning, plus a hidden meaning known only to members of the Roman Church in England long ago. Each element in the carol was a code word for a religious reality which the children could remember. It is explained that "10 lords a leaping" is a reference to the Ten Commandments. 

Or that could all be wrong and it's actually the name of a cocktail created at the Hilton Hotel.

On the 9th Day of Christmas, VoIP Gave to Me... Switchvox Integration

Nine Ladies Dancing!

Broad minded as she is, my Honey said "No, no, no, there will be no gaggle of lasses delivered to our doorstep this Christmas...or any other Christmas, for that matter!" I briefly thought about re-gifting, but that wasn't such a good idea.

VoIP Microsoft Office Integration

So, VoIP, give me something more practical that won't get me in trouble.   

I know, how about Microsoft Office PBX integration?  It doesn't seem to make any sense that Microsoft Office isn't tightly integrated with your business communications system these days.

On the 8th Day of Christmas, VoIP gave to me....

Posted by Randy Kremlacek on Dec 19, 2011 8:00:00 AM

Eight Maids a Milking!  I grew up on the farm, and I can speak from experience that's a lot of milk!  The average cow in the United States produces 6.2 gallons of milk per day. That means 48 gallons of milk per day (and they don't take holidays either!).

At the real risk of lactic overload, VoIP re-gifted the maids and provided me with the delightful alternative of Wideband Audio on my VoIP telephone system

On the 7th Day Of Christmas, VoIP Gave to Me...

Posted by Randy Kremlacek on Dec 18, 2011 8:00:00 AM

Seven Swans a swimming...  I hear that swan meat is supposed to be quite tasty and from ancient times to the nineteenth century, roast swan was on the menu for the King's Christmas dinners and other royal banquets. Since the nineteenth century, the turkey has replaced the swan as the bird of choice for fall and winter holiday feasts.

Six Geese a Laying

Okay, we are now halfway to Christmas with the gaggle of six geese. I frankly can't think of a worse gift to receive than half a dozen honkers. Even as a replacement for a Rottweiler, you really only need one. So VoIP, give something else to me.

Call Center

The VoIP gift of the day is a charming and efficient call center. TeleDynamic provides telephone system consulting as a part of our business.
