HD-Voice, Unified Communications, Service Provider Panels Top ITEXPO Agenda
Technology Marketing Corporation today announced details – including complete lists of panelists – for three General Sessions that are attracting significant interest at next week’s Internet Telephony Conference & Expo in Miami.
Each session is free for all attendees. Registration is now open here.
Unified Communications Shootout
At 4:45 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 2, representatives from Nortel, CommuniGate, Interactive Intelligence, Aspect Communications and Objectworld will present their Unified Communications solutions – and position their products against one another.
Each panelist will make the case for choosing their offerings by laying out a business case, explaining differentiators and providing a quick demonstration of their systems. The “shootout” format provides just seven minutes for each to make their case, and the session provides a detailed Q&A for attendees to dig deeper into each vendors’ claims. “Internet Telephony (News - Alert)” magazine Editorial Director Greg Galitzine will moderate.
Service Provider Roundtable
At 9:15 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 3, executives from 8x8, Inc., Broadvox, MagicJack, Telefonica, tw telecom, and Verizon will share their thoughts on the state of the market and today’s economic climate, and they will discuss how anticipated changes in Washington will impact the telecom industry.
The session, moderated by communications industry blogger Andy Abramson, will also provide attendees with a glimpse into the future of mobility and next-generation wireless technologies. Attendees are encouraged to bring their questions for these industry leaders who are best suited to provide the answers.
HD – What’s the Noise and Are We Ready?
At 12:15 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 3, TMC president Rich Tehrani (News - Alert) leads a panel of experts discussing how IP Communications solutions have exceeded the fidelity and clarity of the PSTN – and they will discuss upcoming HD-Voice solutions that will take advantage of this new fidelity. Participants in this session include: Alan Percy (News - Alert) (AudioCodes), Tim Yankey (Polycom), Debbie Greenstreet (Texas Instruments), Bill Bumbernick (Alteva), Jan Linden (Global IP Solutions) and James Awad (Octasic).
“ITEXPO (News - Alert) helps attendees understand the current landscape, and provides a glimpse into the future of the IP communications market,” said Michael Genaro, vice president of marketing for TMC (News - Alert). “It showcases all of the latest technologies, and it provides the face-to-face networking opportunities that people need to conduct business. We’re looking forward to a tremendous show next week in Miami.
