Vertical Communications at ITEXPO This Week

January 30, 2012

Tomorrow kicks off TMC’s (News - Alert) ITEXPO East 2012 in Miami and there’s a lot for attendees to look forward to with the many panels, presentations, and product launches that will be happening this week.

One such panel will focus on virtualized unified communications, and is being presented by an array of experts, including Vertical Communications’ own Jon Young (News - Alert).

During the panel, “The Business Benefits of Virtualized UC,” Young will provide his expertise on how virtualization can enable unified communications capabilities that can deliver tangible and positive impacts on business performance.

Unified communications software is taking VoIP to new levels, transforming ordinary business phones and desktop computers into a virtual communications platform.

Virtualization offers many financial and technical advantages, which is why a number of businesses around the globe are interested in making the move.

“Today's enterprise technologies are about leveraging advanced communications to increase productivity and lower operating costs,” noted Young in a release. “Businesses large and small are adopting UC technology to help make that happen. ITEXPO (News - Alert) provides an excellent forum to discuss the expansive variety of ways businesses can use UC to enhance their operations.”

Young brings more than 21 years of telecommunications product development and management experience to bear on shaping business-oriented UC and IP communications and is Vertical Communications’ (News - Alert) senior product manager.

“We are pleased to have Jon join us for this timely and valuable program at ITEXPO East,” remarked Rich Tehrani (News - Alert), TMC CEO. “As more communications services become virtualized or move into ‘the cloud,' enterprises are seeking ways to increase network efficiencies and reduce capital expenditures while leveraging these powerful new technologies. This session will provide an excellent dialogue for helping these companies stay ahead of the curve.”

The panel will be held Friday, February 3, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami Beach, Florida.
