Ingate Systems Presents the New SIP Trunk-Unified Communications Summit at ITEXPO West 2010

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN--(Marketwire - July 7, 2010) -  Unified Communications is coming of age and it's being driven by the urgent demand for SIP trunking, which lowers operating costs and delivers rapid ROI. To address the need for information on the what, why and how of Unified Communications and SIP trunking, Ingate® Systems is partnering with TMC, thought-leaders and vendors in the space to present the new SIP Trunk-Unified Communications Summit at ITEXPO West 2010. 

Free to all ITEXPO attendees, the Summit is a three-day seminar series providing in-depth educational information on SIP trunking and Unified Communications (UC). The Summit will include general information panels and technical insight sessions from both the service provider and enterprise perspectives, and will feature visionaries driving the industry.

To date, confirmed speakers include Dialogic, Iwatsu, Mitel NetSolutions, ShoreTel, The SIP School and VOIPSA. David Yedwab, a Founding Partner in Market Strategy and Analytics Partners LLC., contributor to Unified Communications Strategies and TMCnet columnist, will discuss the future for service providers in a UC-enabled world. Additionally, service provider Telia will present their SIP trunk implementation with Intertex Data AB as a case study. Joel Maloff of Maloff NetResults will moderate the panel discussions.

The SIP Trunk-UC Summit will be held October 4-6, 2010 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California.

"This season will feature a strong focus on ROI. The economy has forced decision-makers to take a hard look at new technologies, to invest in solutions that lower costs, improve productivity and are easy to implement. SIP trunking fits the bill," said Steven Johnson, President, Ingate Systems. "SIP trunking is a secure, cost-effective way for enterprises to adopt SIP, and it's the first step toward UC adoption."
