The event will primarily aim at discussing the vital topics related to the subject, such as the procedures and methodologies pertaining to Unified Communications and SIP trunking, a technology that cuts down operating costs and delivers rapid 'Return On Investment' or 'ROI' for the enterprises.
The 'SIP Trunk-Unified Communications Summit', a three day seminar series will be free for all the attendees of ITEXPO, and will offer valuable educational information on SIP trunking and 'Unified Communications' or 'UC'. Comprising of a number of general information panels and technical insight sessions both from the service provider as well as the enterprise perspective, the even will be attended by various experts in the field who are well known within the industry for their experience and analytical observations.
