Currently over tens of millions of households in the world are calling through VoIP, video telefony (both mobile and fixed) is increasingly popular and of better quality, and the increasing availability of User ENUM in the market is a clear signal that the migration towards all-IP is definitely on its way. From the user side, the vendor community and service providers expections are sky high - yet nobody knows which business models, technologies and services will be the ones to make it all the way to the end. The various market forces that are developing in this field need to position themselves on the basis of a good insight into technology and in the way users want to interact with that technology. That, in interaction with what the competition is doing will determine the business opportunities. For users (and governments) it is vital that the result is an open infrastructure where flexibility, stability, usability, security and service go hand in hand. On March 15th 2007 ISOC Netherlands organises the second edition of the Future of VoIP conference. Learn more about upcoming IETF standards around P2P SIP, ENUM, open source SIP clients, SIP on dual-mode GSM/WiFi devices, the possible role of Fiber to the home and interconnect issues between VoIP islands. Prominent (inter)nationale speakers such as Thomas Anglero (Nuclei Networks), James Body (Truphone), David Bryan (co-chair IETF P2PSIP WG, Sipeerior) and Olaf Kolkman (director NLnet Labs, member of the Internet Architecture Board) wil guide you along new insights from the different worlds behind VoIP and SIP. Join us in the discussion on the business models behind future communication patterns via internet, and determine your own strategy on the basis of a broad spectre of opinions, visions and experiences.
