Voice Over IP (VOIP) telephone services have been
available for many years and are now entering the
mainstream as some of the telecom giants, such as
ATT and Verizon offer VOIP services to compete with
established startups like Vonage.
The next wave of VOIP will see live communications
incorporated in applications so that users can
instantly connect with support reps, sales reps,
suppliers, customers or other users to continue their
communication using voice in real time.
Attendees at this Technology Trends Forum will get

for incorporating VOIP in mainstream applications
- What customers will expect as "standard" over
the next five years
- The architectural issues and competing
architectural standards, protocols and interfaces
that facilitate bringing live communications into your
- The problems and pitfalls faced by some early
adopters who are already taking this next step
Panelists will represent the vendor side, the user
side, and will include an analyst that can provide an
overview of the marketplace, the trends, and the
business opportunity. Panelists include:
- Brough Turner, CTO, NMS Communications
- Steve Smith, CEO, Ampersand
- Kathryn Korostoff, President, Sage Research
- Rob McKinney, Director of Product Management, Centra Software
This year's four Technology Trends programs will focus
on technology related topics which are (or should be)
of greatest interest to the CTO, and frequently the
CEO, at technology companies. Organized and led by 7
CTOs of Massachusetts software companies,each
program will typically include presentations by four or
five experts in the area with ample time set aside for
participant questions and lively discussion.
