VoIP Planet on ITEXPO

October 19, 2006

Here is a great write up on Internet Telephony Conference & Expo from Mark Miller over at VoIP Planet. What I like about Mark’s piece is that it is a great overview of many of the events that took place during the event.

There was truly a tremendous amount of activity at the show and as Jon Arnold mentioned earlier, one person couldn’t do justice to it all. Still, great job Mark. Thanks for the coverage.

Here is an excerpt:

Quintuple play?
We’ve all heard of double and triple plays in baseball, but now a VoIP organization is pitching ways to better manage and bill for the quintuple play of IP-based services, including broadband, mobile, VoIP, IPTV, and Emerging Content. The Internet Protocol Detail Record Organization (IPDR) is a consortium of service providers, software and equipment manufactures, system integrators, and billing vendors that are collaborating to facilitate the exchange of usage and control data between networking and hosting elements.

ITEXPO Highlights From Jon Arnold

October 19, 2006

Jon Arnold had a good overview of what happened at ITEXPO last week on his blog. As he points out the show content is very broad and we have done our best to go deep in the important areas.

Here is an excerpt:

----

For the Expo, I ended up speaking or moderating for 5 sessions, so that’s the better part of a day there in total. Then you have to leave time to walk the show floor, and oh – almost forgot, there’s like a few hundred speakers to see across dozens of sessions and keynotes. There must have been about 10 different tracks to follow, and guess what – they’re all interesting.

At the end of the day, I ended up dropping in for a handful of sessions, so I can’t tell you much about the content of the show other than the sessions I was involved with.

ITEXPO West 2006 is Over

October 14, 2006

The show went very well and I am on the way home. When I got to my seat I found it was located next to the door. There was no seat in front of me so I couldn't keep my laptop bag, food or magazines with me. I knew a flight attendant was going to come and take everything away and store them in the overhead compartment.


Naturally being the complainer I am I called my wife and whined.

IP Communications IPOs are back

October 13, 2006

While a single positive offering does not a trend make, the negative effects of the Vonage IPO have been felt far and wide and yesterday at ITEXPO many people in the industry told me they hope the Acme Packet IPO goes well today. As an industry this latest offering has the ability to reinforce the negativity started by Vonage or it could have the opposite effect.

Of course the business model of Acme Packet and Vonage could not be more different as Acme sells to service providers and has an A list of equipment provider partners. Still, many see the companies in the same sector.

I am getting ready to head over to Internet Telephony Conference & Expo now but so far the news on the Acme Packet IPO is good. The shares have soared 47% in their debut.
