e911 a problem for many VOIP providers

Many VOIP providers will not be able to provide "enhanced" 911 service to all their customers by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)'s November 28 deadline, VOIP industry sources say (see FCC Requires VOIP E911).

The FCC order requires VOIP providers provide ”enhanced” 911 service, which delivers a caller’s name, telephone number, and physical address directly to the console of the local Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) in an emergency.

Industry insiders say most VOIP providers are working toward the goal, but realizing it in the entirety of their territory, for most, is an unrealistic goal.

Smoking gun is wet! No smoke, not even a gun!!

Sco's smaoking gun is nothing according to a released internal memo and an email. I am putting this down because most VOIP software I am interested in are running on linux. And the SCO case is all about linux being dirty. I wonder if Mcbride looked into his own underware? Somebody give him a pack of fruit of the loom or whatever.

Private labled VOIP service offered

Zoom Technologies, Inc. (ZOOM) today announced its Zoom VoIP ASAP™ Service, a turnkey VoIP telephone service that gives Internet Service Providers (ISPs) a fast and inexpensive way to sell VoIP service that the ISP brands and controls.
Using Zoom's VoIP ASAP Service, an ISP has complete flexibility in structuring plans for its customers. For instance, an ISP could charge its customers $2 per month for Zoom's $1 wholesale package, and then bill toll calls on a per-call basis. Alternately, the ISP might decide to offer unlimited calling within the US and Canada for a flat monthly rate. The ISP might even elect to provide free or low-cost VoIP hardware in exchange for a suitable service commitment from the end user.
