Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

An OEM using Cadence technology said today it is set to release a box that will plug into phone sockets and save international phone bills by using the Internet Protocol. The box will plug straight into normal Bell or BT sockets, but will bypass the telcos by using clever chip technologies to use the IP protocol, it has emerged. If true, the reports, which Cadence UK refuses to comment on, will mean subscribers across the world will be able to bypass normal carriers, such as Sprint and BT. The box will also spell the end to suppliers of cheap international calls, a phenomenon which has been proliferating here in the UK for the last 18 months. No one from BT was available for comment at press time. ®
