VoIP Conference

A VoIP conference is one of the best ways to stay educated on VoIP. VoIP is hotter than ever. And I have to say, staying educated on the latest VoIP products, services, or VoIP standards is a full-time job (actually it is my job!) Fortunately, TMC's Internet Telephony Conference & Expo, the leading VoIP conference, helps keep me educated.

2005 no doubt will be a banner year for VoIP. Many industry pundits are making predictions as such - everything from VoIP company mergers/buyouts to IPOs to some unknown killer VoIP-app will happen in 2005. This next big VoIP conference (February 22nd-25th) promises to be the largest VoIP conference ever. Rich Tehrani tells me the attendee pre-registration number for this VoIP conference are already setting record numbers. The conference track for Internet Telephony Conference & Expo is amazing this year with some really interesting topics. Check out some of the topics the speakers will be covering in the conference sessions:
  • VoIP Peering
  • Regulation & Taxation
  • E-911
  • UNE-P to VoIP
  • VoIP Security
  • Open Source Telephony <--- Probably my favorite topic
  • Triple Play
  • Session Border Controllers
  • WiFi Telephony
  • SIP Workshop
  • VoIP Conferencing
These are but a short list of topics covered in the conferences. You should go check out the conference's brochure for more info. Rich told me he expects a record number of exhibitors as well as service providers at this conference show and not surprisingly, a very sizable developer audience since this conference has certification classes in various VoIP genres. I'm hoping to see more open source telephony solutions similar to the popular Asterisk IP-PBX. There is a shift taking place in VoIP as the technology has proven itself in the real world and now we must try to figure out where we go from here. Rich calls this VoIP 2.0 - the next level of VoIP. This is an important concept because entirely new industries are emerging to take advantage of the new opportunities that VoIP provides. For example, Skype, Popular Telephony and Nimcat Networks are just three companies in the p2p VoIP space yet they are affecting the lives of tens of millions of people. VoIP peering is a relatively new phenomenon and it has the ability to reduce the cost of VoIP an order of magnitude from where it is today! UNE-P rule changes are forcing service providers to scramble and become VoIP providers. There is a great deal more to VoIP 2.0 and this conference is the only one that is focusing on the most important areas of VoIP growth. I'll be at this next VoIP conference covering all the VoIP news that be announced at the conference show and I'm sure there will be lots of it. Often times I moderate one or more of the conference sessions, so feel free to say "hello" if you a regular reader of my blog. Like I previous stated, everything I'm hearing is that this will be a blockbuster VoIP conference show with some HUGE VoIP announcements. I'll be reporting from the conference show floor any VoIP news scoops I find, so check my blog regularly. If I recall, I did a huge "blogathon" (lots of back-to-back blogs) at a past VoIP conference here: VoIP Conference Tradeshow Update Actually, this is a better link - VoIP Conference Blogathon - since it covers all of October 2004's blog entries when I was covering Internet Telephony conference announcements (along with those damn Red Sox beating the Yankees).

Update: I've been asked a few times to provide a list of other VoIP conferences, so here ya go:
