Acme Packet University Charts the "Course" for the Next-Generation of Interactive Communications

First-of-Its-Kind Event Will Engage Industry Thought Leaders on Key Trends and Future Developments in IP Communications

BEDFORD, MA--(Marketwire - Mar 8, 2012) - Against the backdrop of a complex, dynamic, and sometimes confusing marketplace, Acme Packet® (NASDAQ: APKT), the leader in session delivery networks, today announced the first annual Acme Packet University, a day of discussion and discourse to clarify and set the stage for the future of the IP communications industry. This invitation-only event for media and analysts features company executives and industry thought leaders, and will be held Thursday, March 15, 2012 at the Harvard Faculty Club in Cambridge, MA.

The event sessions -- presented by market luminaries such as Diane Myers of Infonetics, Dan Warren of the GSMA, Zeus Kerravala of ZK Research, Andy Ory, CEO of Acme Packet, and Pat MeLampy, CTO of Acme Packet -- will help to answer questions like:

  • What does 4G mean for interactive communications?
  • How secure are corporate videoconferences?
  • Will VoIP users start getting spam on their phones?
  • Could Google Voice, FaceTime, and Skype disrupt the traditional service providers?
  • Does cloud computing mean the end of specialized telecommunications hardware?

"The radical changes brought about by IP communications will fundamentally alter the way consumers, businesses and governments interact," said Andy Ory, CEO and co-founder, Acme Packet. "The next few years will redefine key telecommunications tenets: privacy and identity, quality of service assurance and regulatory compliance among them. We've designed Acme Packet University to provide a unique, under-the-hood view into this complex and changing world in order to help industry thought leaders understand the magnitude of this shift."
