HELP! I'm in Soft Switch Hell!!!

I’m drowning in vendor information. I don’t even know if what I want to do can be accomplished with a single soft switch/media gateway device. I don’t even know if I know the difference between the two any more.

My forehead is wrinkled and my eyes burn. I want a piece of carrier grade gear that i can partition for various wholesale type customers. I want to manage it (not me personally), and I want to provide all the CLEC type services off the back end of it.

What have I gotten myself into?

Someone, anyone, please point me in the right direction.

3rd attempt...

despite my utter desire to write about the day that was, each attempt is too open, too revealing, and too close to the surface. suffice it to say, it ranks in the top 5 worst days ever….. ever…. ever….. i can still hear that echo in my head.

for anyone who knows me, and knows where i work, likely you understand, nodding your head. for the rest of my viewers, my apologies at the vagueness i have to cover everything with. it’s difficult to be in such an odd industry. especially in times as they are. 

 … i struggled home at 7, and was never so happy as to get a good lick from the smapp dog. with furrowed brow, i imagine what life would be like without the continuing saga of [the company that cannot be named].


24 hours...

0773758690.01._SCLZZZZZZZ_.jpgi’ve been immersed in training for the past day… very apropos training, of managing through change….  I  always have enjoyed and appreciated the facilitators at Horn…

And they never cease to amaze me with their insight and enthusiasm. I have no idea how they get to be the way they are…. but they are always outstanding.  I leave the sessions, and ALWAYS walk home, if only to mull over the day in peace, watching the water and ruminating… yes, bovine like, sheesh.
