P2P Bellster by Pulver, IAX Clearing House?

It looks like Jeff has sprung another one on the Phone industry. By linking Asterisk servers he has created what looks to me to be a IAX clearing house. Not sure where the P2P is here apart from the servers being linked by Bellster.

“The Bellster challenge for 2005 is to find out whether or not there are still people in the world who would let total strangers place noncommercial phone calls for free in exchange for the ability to do the same thing themselves,” Pulver said in an e-mail.

This sounds a little reminiscent of the MicroTelco concept introduced by many including Quicknet and others several years ago. At any rate it’s always good to see disruptive technology put to good use 🙂


IP Videoconferencing

Xten is now working with to deliver IP Videoconferencing via eyeBeam without the aid of a conference server.

“Desktop videoconferencing can change the way we work. By enabling face-to-face communication over the Internet, we can cut travel time and increase contact with academics and researchers across the province and around the world,”said Hrybyk. We are confident, that this type of technology will help our members to become more productive and effective.”

BCNET ( is a non-profit society supporting and promoting advanced networks for the province’s research and education communities. The organization serves BC’s academic, research and development institutions, government bodies, community organizations and industry groups. BCNET is the province’s foremost leader in advanced network technology. BCNET is supported by the provincial and federal governments as well as by its regional member institutions.


Google gets Voogle

Well I guess it was inevitable, Google has seemingly alluded to its plans to get into VoIP and IP communications.

It would make perfect sense for the big G to build and IM client with VoIP, Video and Presence. Their massive appeal could amount to tens of millions of end points will little effort. Another competitor for Skype, let’s hope they choose to go with open standards!
