SIP trunks are fueling interest in, and adoption of, Unified Communications. That's why at the ITEXPO in October, in LA, we're debuting the new SIP Trunk-Unified Communications Summit, to showcase the close relationship between these two services. We're developing a program that helps demystify Unified Communications, just like we did for SIP trunking, and provides you with a roadmap - the information you need to know, now -- on the what, why and how of UC.
SIP trunking is still a focus, so look for some innovative programming on that front as well.
To date, confirmed speakers include Dialogic, Iwatsu, Mitel NetSolutions, ShoreTel, the SIP School and VOIPSA.
David Yedwab, a Founding Partner in Market Strategy and Analytics Partners LLC., contributor to Unified Communications Strategies and TMCnet columnist, will discuss the future for service providers in a UC-enabled world.
Additionally, service provider Telia will present their SIP trunk implementation with Intertex Data AB as a case study.
Joel Maloff of Maloff NetResults will moderate the panel discussions.
The SIP Trunk-UC Summit will be held October 4-6, 2010 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California.
