I think I've become more of a geek than I'd like to admit. I was able to figure out how to get my XTEN Eyebeam client to register on two networks, without the help of anyone from any network. That's right. No system admin. No uber geek types to tell me how to do it.
I signed up with Junction Networks this morning. I set up an account, provided them a credit card and loaded up ten dollars worth of calling. I mean, if I can do that with Skype, why not try out a company from my home town (Philadelphia's) suburbs right. Immediately I had my SIP credentials in front of me, and about two minutes later I had figured out how to configure Eyebeam.
So while I already have Broadvoice on the softphone, I was intrigued by Junction Network's recent announcement with Yipes, one of the carriers who have a very, very cool network architecture that's really built for Voice and multimedia. I'll let you know how the calls sound.....and more importantly, how easy it works.
What this means:
First I'll be able to use it obviously on the softphones I get to evaluate.
Second I'm supposed to receive a new Polycom SIPphone from my pal Marcelo Rodriguez, the founder and CEO of client Voxilla.
Third, with PhoneGnome I'm able to pick an ITSP for long distance, so i want to give that a try.
I guess Tom Keating and Aswath aren't alone any more in the area of VoIP experimentation...
