K2 Uses VoSKY Exchange for Free Skype Calls

Actiontec Electronics announced that K2, a global sporting equipment manufacturer best known for its K2 skis, has installed the VoSKY Exchange gateway in its corporate headquarters to allow Internet-based Skype calls to be routed to and from users’ standard desk phones over the office PBX. The Exchange solution paid for itself in four weeks by enabling free Skype-to-Skype calls between K2 employees anywhere in the world and the main office in Carlsbad, California.

Users at K2 headquarters can make Skype calls from their existing desk phones with no need to install Skype client software on their office PCs or use a PC/headset setup during Skype conversations. Users on the road or in satellite K2 offices can call any colleague in the Carlsbad headquarters by clicking K2 headquarters’ main Skype ID through their own Skype-equipped laptops or desktops and entering the appropriate office extension. In both scenarios, calls are free because VoSKY Exchange automatically directs Skype calls to the Skype network.

VoIP Going Green Solution?

The "going green" movement these days seems to be gaining momentum. More people are buying hybrid cars, wind turbines, and investing in solar power technologies. Ecosphere Technologies debutes its Ecos LifeLink a portable, self-contained micro-utility that helps support off-grid needs including disaster relief and activity in remote locations. A model of the Ecos LifeLink will be unveiled at this week's Cleantech Venture Forum in San Franciso.

The Eco's LifeLink solution represents a combination of patent-pending products from EES including the Ecos Power Cube, a mobile solar generator, and the Ecos Com Cube, a wireless communications platform.

Deployed as two 20-foot Power Cubes, the Ecos LifeLink meets many growing demands, but the one I found interesting was it's reliable 24/7 communication. Centered around the Ecos Com Cube, the communications control room is equipped with a satellite communications and electrical power management system that leverages the energy generated from LifeLink's renewable energy sources to provide electricity and power a full range of wireless VSAT, VOIP and wireless communications capable of handling thousands of phone calls and offering wireless connectivity for a range of up to 30 miles.

Pretty cool if you ask me and you can read the entire article here, Ecosphere Technologies' Solar Powered Micro-Utility Meets Off-Grid Demands

Thanks for the going green logo.

Satellite Radio Rivals XM And SIRIUS Merge

The rumors and whisperings have finally come true--XM Satellite Radio and SIRIUS Satellite Radio today announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement, under which the companies will be combined in a tax-free, all-stock merger of equals with a combined enterprise value of approximately $13 billion, which includes net debt of approximately $1.6 billion.

Now the big question is, will the merger be approved? The transaction is subject to approval by both companies' shareholders, the satisfaction of customary closing conditions and regulatory review and approvals, including antitrust agencies and the FCC. The issue is that the FCC has already hinted that it might not approve a merger of the two satellite giants.

Pending regulatory approval, the companies expect the transaction to be completed by the end of 2007.

Under the terms of the agreement, XM shareholders will receive a fixed exchange ratio of 4.6 shares of SIRIUS common stock for each share of XM they own. XM and SIRIUS shareholders will each own approximately 50 percent of the combined company.

Mel Karmazin, currently Chief Executive Officer of SIRIUS, will become Chief Executive Officer of the combined company and Gary Parsons, currently Chairman of XM, will become Chairman of the combined company.
