The Worldï¿½s Only First and Only Conference on
Will You Be Behind Tomorrowï¿½s Skype, Asterisk,
Blackberry or iPhone?
As communications evolves, two things are certainï¿½ 1) The need for applications has never been
greater. 2) If you hit it big in communications, you not only improve the world, but you could also
become very wealthy.
But where to start and who to partner with? Should you make the next unified communications
adjunct? Focus on WiFi security? IMS applications or those allowing mobile advertising? A universal
interface which allows PC or Mac applications to be used perfectly well on a mobile browser?
Should you work with Avaya, Aculab, Cisco, Dialogic, Texas Instruments, Sangoma, AudioCodes?
None of them? All of them? Should you partner with Sangoma on some novel open source
application? Fill a hole in the Digium/ Asterisk product line and try to partner with them?
I could easily fill pages with all the next-gen applications the world needs and is willing to pay for.
But, of course, my opinion is my own and any single personï¿½s ideas are limited. It is for this reason
the entire world of communications development will convene in Los Angeles for the worldï¿½s
largest unaffiliated Communications Developer Conference. This event is not about discussing any
single companyï¿½s products, but moreover about how to make money and how to partner wisely so
you can generate revenue as fast as possible.
I will tell you seriously ï¿½ having been in the communications conference business for more than two
decades ï¿½ you cannot get the information you will learn from this conference in any other place.
The speakers and attendees at this event are unique to this show and this is the only location
where the TMC editorial team will be present in force to answer questions you may have.
Simply stated, this is the one event you need to attend each year if you are involved in product or
service development in communications and technology.
This 5th Annual Communications Developer Conference is the only chance youï¿½ll have this year to
learn and network in an environment focused on new application development.

Hosted by TMC, Communications Industry Pioneers Since 1982
At TMC, we have been covering communications markets since 1982 through our INTERNET
TELEPHONY, Communications Solutions and Customer Interaction Solutions magazines. This eventï¿½s
sister conference is INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO, which weï¿½ve been hosting since
1999, and which has grown into the largest IP communications event in the world.
Back in 2003, developers and vendors told us that a focused developerï¿½s conference is a clear
necessity for the IP communications market. It is our pleasure to provide for the fifth year in a row
this opportunity for the development community to gather, learn, and network.
I look forward to personally greeting you at the event.
Rich Tehrani, TMC President and Conference Chairman
