Ottawa, September 4, 2008 — PIKA Technologies, a developer of media-processing hardware and software, today announced that David Clarke, business development manager, and Mark Recoskie, senior field application engineer/customer care, will be speaking at TMC’s INTERNET TELEPHONY® Conference and EXPO West 2008 on September 16 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California.

Clarke will deliver a session titled, “Telephony Appliances Versus Telephony Boards,” focusing on how telephony appliances like the PIKA WARP Appliance compare to traditional off-the-shelf CTI (News - Alert) board and PC solutions. Recoskie”s session, “Embracing Embedded Environments for Development Success,” will explore how integrated tool chains can greatly ease the headaches associated with starting work on a project that requires an embedded environment.
“We’re proud of the fact that we have such talented people at PIKA who stand as thought leaders in the various areas of telephony technology development,” said Terry Atwood, PIKA”s vice president of sales, marketing and customer care. “David and Mark are excellent ambassadors to represent PIKA and articulate the advantages provided to voice-application developers and custom telephony-solution providers by the next generation of technology.”

At the 2007 West coast event last September, the show drew more than 7,000 buyers and sellers of IP communications products and services. The show in September will be the 18th INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference and EXPO, and TMC expects total attendance to once again exceed 7,000.
“We are very pleased that David Clarke and Mark Recoskie will be participating in this year’s show. PIKA Technologies is widely recognized and respected as an industry leader, and I am confident that our attendees will appreciate and value the opportunity to hear their perspectives,” said TMC president and conference chairman Rich Tehrani. “Over the past 12 months, widespread deployment of IP Communications services by global service providers, businesses and governments has reinforced that this exciting technology is a viable, cost-effective communications solution. As a result, we are seeing a significant number of senior-level executives attending INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO as a means of learning about the technology so they too can take advantage of its benefits.”
