Publisher's Outlook
By Rich Tehrani
For years I have been writing about communications, constantly searching the world for exciting news to share with my readers. Often this job of mine allows me to connect with people who I know are destined to do great things.

SIP Testing Gets Serious
By Richard "Zippy" Grigonis
