INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO Announces New Sessions for Service Providers

NORWALK, Conn. --(Business Wire)-- Jan. 3, 2005 -- Peering, Peer-to-Peer, E-911, "UNE-P to VoIP" Among Topics/Opportunities Covered at Leading VoIP Conference in Miami Next Month

Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) today released an updated conference agenda for INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO in Miami next month. The conference, February 22-25 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Miami, Florida, now features four tracks dedicated to educating service providers about profitably delivering VoIP services to customers worldwide.

The theme of the conference is Witness the Evolution of IP Telephony: VoIP 2.0!

According to Rich Tehrani, TMC president and conference chairman, service providers, perhaps more than any other group, need education about the opportunities and pitfalls of delivering new VoIP services.

"As VoIP has exploded over the past 18 months, service providers have been in a race to bring products to market, some doing so without knowing all the implications. There are regulatory issues like E-911 to deal with. Plus, without full knowledge of concepts like 'peering,' terminating calls without routing them over the PSTN, today's hasty providers will not be able to compete financially with more savvy carriers," said Tehrani.

He added, "More than half of the educational content at the upcoming INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO in Miami has been designed specifically for service providers. We've created a venue where they can gather to learn and network and become fully prepared to seize the VoIP opportunity in front of them."

Topics of particular interest to service providers which will be covered in the conference program at INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO Miami 2005 include:

-- Securing Carrier VoIP Networks

-- Access Challenges of Deploying VoIP to the Enterprise
