A few weeks after BT grabbed Silicon Valley startup, Ribbit, Voxeo, located out of the usual tech belt in Florida, has shown us once again that the business of VoIP is on the way up, not down.
In his post, Voxeo resident social media maven, Dan York, highlights details of the way things are going there.
So, beyond the obvious, what does this mean:
1) There is a great deal of interest in Voice XML and voice driven technology.
2) That people in the space like Thomas Howe who have been evangelizing the arrival of voice mashups are seeing their vision unfold before our eyes.
3) That IT and telecom engineers are looking beyond the usual suspects of integrators for new, novel and breakthrough ideas that can deliver a difference for their companies and their customers.
4) That innovation is clearly here once again in the telecom world.
5) With broadband proliferation, lower costs for storage, faster networks, bigger processors with more power, that processes which used to take massive amounts of computing power are now done from anywhere and can be used anywhere.
For a company like Voxeo, all of this is coming together at a time when telecom is changing.
