Meet ITEXPO West 2011 Participants Right Now

September 9, 2011

In order to get the communications and technology community ready for one of the largest business technology shows in the world, we strive to interview as many of the participants at ITEXPO and collocated events before the event. What you see below is 59 of the latest interviews from the show - and more importantly a window into the event itself.

We asked participants questions about the cloud, social networking, mobility and the future of tech. Many of them had thought-provoking comments which are something worth chewing on this weekend. The interviews are below:

The PSTN Will Die. Time to Learn SIP

September 9, 2011

It should come as no surprise to avid followers of this blog that the PSTN is potentially going to be mothballed in the next seven years. If you are wondering what will replace it, the answer is in-part SIP and protocols TBD. You may know that there will be a can't-miss keynote panel on the death of the PSTN at ITEXPO next week but what you may not know is the SIP Forum - the global organization devoted to SIP interoperability and promotion is making a big splash at the show and if you either purchase, sell, or manufacture/develop SIP products and solutions you may want to lean more.

Here are the details:

Avaya to Show How Chat and Social Influence Telecom

September 8, 2011

The world on converging faster than ever and technology markets are evolving faster than ever. Today we learned that Google purchased Zagat meaning that content and search will be more intertwined than ever. Earlier this week we learned about a potential link-up between Amazon and 7-Eleven.

The question is, what is next and how do we prepare for transformation which is seemingly taking place across every discipline without regard for incumbent relationships?

Enterprises have to keep an eye on what's happening because as we are seeing before our eyes, voice communications is rapidly becoming social. Avaya is one of the leaders in the communications transformation and this Monday at ITEXPO they will kick off a Tech on Tap event which will help bring us up to speed on how they see the world changing.

Exciting New ITEXPO Keynote, Michael Tribolet with magicJack VocalTec

August 31, 2011

Two months back I told you that IP communications veteran Michael Tribolet, someone involved in the founding and growth of the VoIP space joined magicJack Vocaltec and would be at ITEXPO West in Austin Texas, September 13-15, 2011.

I have great news to share and that is that Michael will be keynoting at the show at 8:45 am on Sept 13. He kicks off what is perhaps the best keynote line-up ITEXPO has ever seen - he will be followed up by representatives from Cisco, IBM, DHL, Ethernet inventor Bob Metcalfe and many more.

I have known Tribolet for about a decade if not longer and he worked at some of the most influential game-changing companies in his career. For example, he Vice President of Operations at Dialpad - a VoIP leader in the nineties allowing tens of millions of global callers the ability to call into the US for free.

He then went to Vonage America and became President and watched the company change the face of VoIP - causing the cable companies to realize IP was their future as well. The ensuing competition between Vonage and the cablecos is still fascinating to watch.

Now at magicJack Vocaltec, Tribolet is once again at one of the game-changing IP communications companies and no doubt has fascinating insight on where the communications business has been and will be going.
