Sonus CTO Adresses Telecom Tech Future at ITEXPO

By Tim Gray, TMCnet Web Editor

Noise and jitter took a backseat to IP Man and his pal Me Too at INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO West 2008 in Los Angeles Wednesday. The dynamic duo, a cartoon produced by VoIP company Broadvox (News - Alert), featured a superhero dubbed IP Man whose overarching goal is to thwart those pesky telephony headaches.

The kitschy cartoon was a fitting prelude to a keynote address from Sonus that discussed ways in which telecom is expected to grow in the near future.
Sonus Chief Technology Officer Vikram Saksena (News - Alert) provided an audience of several hundred with an address that focused on the telecom technology and the evolving direction Sonus is taking to help service providers better understand carrier technology.
Sonus is a leader in the IP communications space and a market leader in IP communications infrastructure solutions. In recent years the company has successfully taken on much larger players in the IP communications equipment space.
In 2008 alone, Sonus has seen IP-peering become the leading technology for IP-voice deployments as the penetration of IP-voice networks increased and session border control became a key driver of security and interoperability.
Saksena noted that the communications market is evolving and being driven by new user expectations as well as new innovations in IP session control technologies to deal with the next-generation of rich-media services.
“We are almost at an inflection point in the adoption of IP-based communications and the new drivers are not going to be coming from traditional sources,” he said.
Saksena says community-oriented social networking applications will evolve to support a higher degree of personalization in the coming years, as personal video and place-shifted TV services continues to allow consumers seamless access to new forms of entertainment that is unavailable today.
Network operators will leverage their investments in fixed and mobile broadband networks and IP core infrastructures to deliver seamless access to services from any device, says Saksena, and home networking will continue to make the vision of a broadband home a reality.

INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO — the biggest and most comprehensive IP communications event of the year — is going on this week (September 16-18, 2008) in Los Angeles, California! The show features three valuable days of exhibits, conferences, and networking opportunities you can’t afford to miss. Be sure to check out and blogs from Rich Tehrani, Greg Galitzine, and Tom Keating for news highlights from the show. See you there!
