Special Panels
Internet Telephony Conference & EXPO is also a great place to come and hear expert panels discuss and debate the hottest issues of the day. For example, the Future of IP Telephony panel has long been a staple of this event and is a great forum to hear from the industry leaders as they offer their perspective on where IP telephony is headed, and try to predict the impact this rapidly developing technology will have on the way businesses communicate in the future. Participating companies include MCI, Quintum, IBM, Intel, Ditech Communications, and AltiGen. Making its debut at the Los Angeles conference is a new session entitled the Battle for the Enterprise/SMB. Choosing the correct IP-PBX for your enterprise is no small challenge. With myriad solutions available, some from new players, other from legacy providers, whose solution is best for your particular installation? One size does not fit all. In some instances strong legacy support will be critical. In others, standards compliance will be crucial. In other situations, branch office support at a low cost or centralized management features will be important to consider. Will the new IP-PBX work well with your current infrastructure? Do you need to rip it out and rebuild? What about support, security, and service? This panel will strive to answer important questions from the audience and give you a unique perspective on what items to consider before selecting a solution that is right for your enterprise. Participants in this debate include NEC, Avaya, Toshiba, Nortel, and Inter-Tel.
