The future is calling. Web telephony technologies are hitting the big time. eBay bought Skype, Google launched GoogleTalk, and Yahoo introduced Yahoo Messenger with Voice. Web developer voice platforms such as Tellme and Voxeo are creating entirely new voice services opportunities for developers and enterprises. Pingtel and Digium's open source IP PBX platforms are striking fear into the hearts of traditional telcos. How are the leading IP telephony companies charting this new frontier? How can you stay ahead of the curve in this industry in transition?
The O'Reilly Emerging Telephony Conference is not "Yet Another VoIP Conference." ETel brings you the best of what's happening at the cutting edge of the entire IP telephony spectrum now, and how new technology is being deployed by forward-thinking pioneers. O'Reilly's committment, support, and access to the alpha geek community and top-tier innovative startups acts as a radar for decision makers in the industry who need to know what the next big technology will be.
