VoIP service providers to be
honored at Internet Telephony Conference and EXPO.
INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine is proud to
announce the recipients of the first-ever VoIP Service Provider Award. These
service providers have been identified as truly market-driving companies
whose pioneering efforts have contributed to the growth of VoIP/IP
From the earliest days of VoIP, service
providers such as iBasis, Net2Phone, ITXC (now Teleglobe), deltathree.com,
and others have held the banner high for the transition from TDM to IP. Year
after year, their impact of their success has been evident, as IP traffic as
a share of overall telephony traffic has increased exponentially; first as a
measure of backhaul and now increasingly as last-mile, broadband telephony
minutes of use. Facilitated by partners such as TelX and Arbinet, embodied
in the reincarnation of industry giants such as AT&T, and validated by the
success of relative newcomers like Qwest and Level 3, these VoIP service
providers represent the breadth and depth of the vanguard of tomorrow’s
telecommunications industry. And let us not forget the cable companies who
are racing to offer VoIP solutions to their customer base. IP has changed
the game, and these companies all stand as shining beacons of the evolution
to this brave new world of IP telephony.
The recipients will be honored at a special
dinner on Monday, October 4, 2004 — the opening night of this year's
INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO in Los Angeles (www.itexpo.com).
