ITEXPO West 2010 Show Guide Available

October 1, 2010

The ITEXPO West 2010 Show Guide is here and if you are flying to the show - you may want to download it to your Kindle/laptop/iPad/netbook/smartphone or print it. I am on the plane now and we have the equivalent of a 300 baud modem's worth of bandwidth so I can't download it but as I recall it is over 100 pages and gives you a solid overview of the dozen conferences taking place next week.

In addition it shows you the exhibit hall with over 200 exhibitors and which sections correspond to which technology.

I have this dream that I will have enough time to go through the directory and point to some of the interesting highlights in a blog post.

We'll see how that works out.

Here is the PDF and it is fairly compressed down to 5 Megs as I recall - we may be getting a higher res one soon as well in case you have the bandwidth.

Latest News from Plantronics and Alcatel-Lucent

September 30, 2010

I just happened upon the latest Internet Telephony newsletter and these articles are worth a  read. The Maryland headset story is focused on another state mandating hands-free driving but what makes it interesting is that Maryland drivers have the second-longest US commute. In addition the Alcatel-Lucent ng Connect initiative seems to be gaining traction with 22 11 member companies looking to develop a common framework and standards which will allow more sophisticated 4G and LTE services.


Finally, the Avaya and Skype story is good news for people such as myself who have been wondering why two communiocations companies with a  common parent aren't collaborating more closely.

Avaya Flare and Tablets at ITEXPO Next Week

September 29, 2010

Avaya Inc., on Flickr" href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/avaya/4990234868/">

The Avaya Flare interface is designed to be your enterprise social network and I recently witnessed it in person and running on an Avaya tablet which had a video camera, stereo speakers and more.

Avaya, Cisco and RIM want to be the enterprise tablet provider of choice and in Avaya's case their strategy revolves heavily around collaboration and video - they really see their solution as more of a competitor to the entry-level telepresence and other video endpoint companies.

I could go on but I am sure you've seen my live blog from the launch event by now and you are likely just as excited as I am to hear Avaya's Phil Edholm speak at ITEPO in LA about these exciting new developments. Mark your calendar for Tuesday, Oct 5th at 12:45 PST. Here are the details.
