CRN Tech has recently put together a list of the top 15 vendors in the VoIP space and the list includes several big players. It’s no surprise that companies like Cisco or Avaya made the cut but other smaller providers like 8×8 Inc, Digium and even Vontage (the struggling company Cisco aquired) also squeezed themselves onto the list.
I personally use Skype for my home business and personal calls. With my previous employers, most of the phones we used were Cisco VoIP which worked pretty darn well. The Cisco package even included what’s called a “soft phone” where I installed software on my laptop which simulated my desk phone.
So when I was on business in Japan and someone called my work line, my laptop rang. It was just like I was sitting at my desk. Talk about cool technology. Next time maybe I’ll take the call from the Caribbean and pretend I’m working from my cube.
