The World’s Only Conference on
Who Will Build Tomorrowï¿½s Communications Applications?
As communications evolves, one thing is for certainï¿½ The need for applications has never been
greater. Microsoft has been a huge proponent of building tomorrowï¿½s unified communications
applications for the enterprise while service providers are opening their networks through the likes
of IMS to give application partners access to a vast audience of telecom consumers.
Some areas of communications growth have tremendous potential. For example, in the mobile
space alone there is serious talk of video, music and community sites each being multibillion dollar
markets. The ringtone market has been producing billions in revenue for years now, and this single
application proves that consumers are willing to spend money on new and interesting forms of
This, too, is the year Apple will release its already famous iPhone. How will the communications
market adapt and what new applications may be developed to work with the iPhone? What new
devices will be developed to compete with it head-on?
But consumers are only part of the equation. Businesses too will spend on new applications
whether those applications converge fixed and mobile phones, or tie PBXs into vertical systems such
as accounting or business automation.
We are in a world where software must work with other software; a world of mashups and Web
Communications is rapidly becoming software and, as such, communications will continue to
weave itself into other applications and services.
I invite you to come spend invaluable time networking with your development peers so you can
learn where your industry is headed. As you learn and share ideas, youï¿½ll have the opportunity to
meet and forge relationships with OEMs in desperate need of your ideas.
There is simply no other event focused on communications for the development community. This
one event is where the industry comes together to learn how to build tomorrowï¿½s billion dollar
applications ï¿½ whether they are software-based or consumer devices.
This 4th 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 Solutionsand 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 fourth 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.

What is the Communications Developer
TMCï¿½s Communications Developer Conference is
the ONLY EVENT 100% focused on educating the
pioneers who are building the next generation of
IP-based communications products and services.
VoIP is clearly the worldï¿½s most important
communications technology right now. IP-based
voice, video and data applications are
revolutionizing the way businesses, consumers,
and government agencies communicate on a daily
basis. And the best part is, we are only at the
beginning. The opportunities in IP telephony and
Unified Communications continue to multiply as
VoIP applications permeate service provider
networks, offices, mobile devices, and homes at
an astounding rate.
Come Find the Building Blocks - and Cultivate the
Relationships - You Need to Change the Way the
Communications has never been so open, so
flexible, and so customizable. SIP and open source
have emerged as leading protocols and platforms
for application development.
Developers in the communications space need

Conference to keep up with the evolving
standards and protocols, and to understand how
to use todayï¿½s tools to build truly unique, highly
sought-after VoIP applications.
Communications Developer Conference is the
only place where developers can see live demos
of actual development tools of which they need
to be aware. This event is the perfect forum to
meet and network with like-minded developers
and manufacturers building the future of
