Last week we wrapped up BroadSoft Connections 2015 in Phoenix. We had quite a few interesting conversations with Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) providers. This was our second year exhibiting here and the same business challenge of delivering UCaaS over Bring Your Own Broadband (BYOB) or Circuit (BYOC) is becoming even more common this year. The questions and concerns we heard from UCaaS providers were: We have to turn away customers because we cannot support off-net deployment We cannot support BYOB/BYOC while ensuring quality of service We are getting a lot of demand to deliver our service over the…

The German Autobahn is one of the most famous highway systems in the world with 7,500 miles of speedway in Germany.

What makes it possible for drivers to travel the Autobahn at unlimited speeds is the attention that was paid to its design, from well-placed guard rails that divide the highway for safety to limiting the grade of the roads to 4 percent to using freeze-resistant concrete for winter use. Plus constant maintenance keeps the Autobahn in excellent shape, allowing drivers to travel at high speeds…

Earlier this year, we published our first release of VeloCloud Internet Quality Report. This report provides insight into the Internet performance during 2H/2014 and its impact to the applications and user experience. We found the Internet performance was unpredictable and could not provide consistent quality of experience demanded by enterprises. However, using the SD-WAN technology such as one provided by VeloCloud can overcome the Internet unpredictability, make Internet an enterprise-grade WAN, and provide enterprises with cost effective, reliable, high performance WAN. We recently updated the report with Q1/2015 data and presented the findings during our Webinar. Here are the highlights: The percentage of time that the…

You may know that Internet speeds in the U.S. are slower than the rest of the world but you may not realize how bad it really is. In fact, “the U.S. ranks a shocking 31st in the world in terms of average download speeds.”  Imagine that people in Lithuania, Iceland or Thailand can upload pictures or files to Dropbox faster, or Skype with better voice quality than in the people in the U.S even though both Dropbox and Skype are U.S based companies. In a recent Gizmodo article, Adam Clark Estes, clearly explains the reasons for – U. S. has “shitty”…
