    2.0/IMS services, including the company's new SafariFusion™ Application

    support PacketCable 1.x, PacketCable 2.0 and IMS endpoints, including
    devices from Thomson and Ubee Interactive;

    television with an on-screen-display user interface and a variety of SIP
    endpoints, interoperating with PC 2.0/IMS core elements delivering fused
    communication services, in conjunction with Savant Systems;
--  A discussion of lessons learned from field deployments of business
    voice services to the SMB market by Chris Gugger, senior director, market

    Lifestyles through Fused Services."
