MXIE and Office 2010

If you’re wondering if MXIE (I’m currently using v5.2.17) works with Outlook 2010 and the address book, the answer is yes, as long as you are using the 32bit image version.   The 64bit version of Outlook will leave you with this message: “Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please run Microsoft Outlook and set it as the default mail client.” when starting MXIE.  If you have any question about whether you are running 32 or 64bit Office 2010, simply click file, and help, the version will be displayed in the right hand pane.

In case you are using MXIE and don’t already have this working, it is very easy to setup. Simply click File/Preferences, and under the Address Book pane, select “Microsoft Outlook” under Integration.

Another Widespread Hosted VoIP Outage

Peter Svensson of AP reports that AT&T’s U-verse hosted VoIP customers were without telephone service for about 4 hours on Tuesday 2/25. Support personnel were telling customers that a server crash brought down U-Verse Voice in AT&T's entire 22-state local-phone service area. U-Verse Internet and TV services weren't affected by the Voice outage. While it’s assumed that the majority of the customers were home based consumers, it is hard to tell how many business were affected. This only goes to demonstrate that while any service can be disrupted, the larger the group of people experiencing the outage, the more difficult the problem can be to isolate and fix.  In contrast, premise based equipment is installed at the customer’s site and can be serviced and supported locally.

TelStrong Business Communications is a Dallas company that designs, installs and supports premise based VoIP solutions for small to large companies in North Texas.

Since the FCC formally revealed its plan to expand broadband access on Tuesday, the idea has been generally well-received. And really, what’s there to protest so far? The plan’s stated goal is to connect “100 million households to affordable 100-megabits-per-second service, building the world’s largest market of high-speed broadband users and ensuring that new jobs and businesses are created in America.” It also stresses making broadband faster and more powerful.

AT&T Outages

Just another example why premise based VoIP is a better solution for the majority of users is this outage from AT&T. As a customer, you may never know the extent of the outage. How many businesses were down? What was the geography involved? In this case AT&T is not saying. This outage included the Teleconference services as well so if you had a conference call scheduled for Friday, you had to find another way.  The advantage that a Zultys premise based VoIP solution has over hosted is that if there is a problem with the system itself, it is much easier for a local provider to do a site visit or remote support.  Also, the conference solution is built in and you own it.  The web conference solution is an external add on, but you still own the
