IP Inferno will be attending VON. We are looking forward to a great show with many substantive issues discussed. Consumer adoption of VoIP is now accelerating so we hope to see new applications that truly show how VoIP can be different from POTS... surely the market is large enough by now! Unfortunately most of the pitches we've heard so far are about the infrastructure. Not that its unimportant -- but its not differentiating! How do you present VoIP as an improvement over POTS when you have to spend all of your time talking about security issues? If I didn't know better, I'd guess that VoIP is actually a big step backwards. You have to worry about hackers breaking into your PBX?
So while security and network management are necessary, expect our coverage of the show to focus on innovations that truly make VoIP different from just picking up a telephone. Surely you folks are out there! Drop us a line at press (at) ipinferno.com.
