Delivering Superior Voice with HD Codecs

Thursday - 01/21/10,  8:30-9:15am

As with any technology, the end result begins with the developer community, which lays the foundation on which hardware vendors and service providers build their products and solutions. As the industry considers the move from SD to HD VoIP, this session focuses on the developers who enable the crystal-clear audio delivered to HD handsets. The panelists will discuss how the wideband codec support is being built into handsets, gateways, and other network equipment; the processing ramifications of using G.722 codecs; the complexities of developing and delivering HD VoIP, and how HD-enabled products can enhance the value of communications.

Building Voice Apps - The Developer Perspective

Thursday - 01/21/10,  1:00-1:45pm

It’s been conceded that the future of communications lies in the application space – it’s the innovative applications that will differentiate one provider from the next in a world where access and transport networks have truly become merely an information highway. This, then, places increased value on the voice application developer, who now hold a position of power in the communications market. This session will explore the kinds of applications that are in demand today by providers and their end users, the platforms available to developers for creating them, and a discussion of the relationship between developers and service providers in terms of revenue generation.

Integrating and Automating Presence in Mobile Applications

Thursday - 01/21/10,  2:00-2:45pm

Applications that incorporate presence have been around for many years. While some have been highly successful, the hype behind others has yet to truly materialize. The result is that, while presence has been popular within closed communities for instant messaging, the real potential of presence-based applications has never been realized for a few reasons. The fact that the presence information is only shared among a community who use a specific application, and the ability to determine presence has been tied to detecting usage of a PC keyboard or the user going through the manual and cumbersome process of setting their status. This session will look at the next steps in the evolution of presence-based applications – integrating it and automating it with any device or network. It will examine the challenges that the industry has had along the way, including failed models as well as success stories, and why businesses have not completely embraced mobile presence.

Bridging the Gap Between Legacy and Next Gen

Thursday - 01/21/10,  3:00-3:45pm

Nearly all communications network equipment being deployed today is based on a move to all-IP technology, but the complete migration of networks and users to next generation technologies is far from imminent. That means service providers face a lengthy period of having to support dual technologies in order to continue to provide service to users. There are two potential approaches: run two entirely separate networks, each with its own set of applications and services; or find a way to bridge the gap between legacy and next generation technologies, to reduce infrastructure, development, operational, and support costs. The answer is a no-brainer. Providers cannot, at this point, try to force a wholesale migration of their customers. This session will discuss ways providers can have the best of both worlds – leverage existing infrastructures and services while building out their new networks and adding new capabilities specifically designed for them, thus continuing to meet the needs of their entire customer base.

Has Open Source Telephony Crossed the Chasm

Thursday - 01/21/10,  4:00-4:45pm

Much has been said about stability, reliability and scalability of open source telephony, and there are different models to consider when discussing the viability of open source. But, the simple fact is that that open source IP PBX deployments now outnumber any single PBX vendor’s installations in North America. This session will discuss the evolution of open source telephony, and why its popularity has grown exponentially in recent years. Attendees will also learn how open source telephony projects can be developed for both SMB and large enterprise environments, including integration with existing proprietary platforms and the benefits of working with flexible open source architectures and how to integrate open source into a unified communications platform.
