"Frankly we don't think anyone stands a chance competing with us in this space," Cisco Chief Development Officer Charles Giancarlo said. "We basically invented Voice over IP so we basically know better than anyone else where it's headed."
This must be one of the most arrogant statements i have ever read. And nothing could be further from the truth, especially when it comes to the invention of standards surrounding VOIP.
Lets see a few years down the line exactly where CISCO will be. So far i have spoken to plenty of people that are replacing CISCO CallManager with a more open IP phone system, and loading SIP firmware on their CISCO phones.
