Grant Kirkwood to Discuss IP Peering and Enabling Ultra Low Latency Applications Over Ethernet at the IP Communications Industry's Leading Event This September

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - August 31, 2009) - Mzima Networks, the world's premier high-performance Network Service Provider, today announces that Grant Kirkwood has accepted an invitation to present multiple times, first in a session titled "Effective IP Peering Strategies" at TMC's INTERNET TELEPHONY® Conference & EXPO West 2009 (ITEXPO) on September 1 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California followed by a 45 minute Track: Communications Developer, on September 3rd at 8:30am where Grant will present on "Enabling Ultra Low Latency Applications over Ethernet."

ITEXPO, celebrating its 10th Anniversary in 2009, is the world's largest and best-attended IP Communications trade show, drawing an average attendance of 7,000 buyers and sellers of IP Communications products and services. The show in September will be the 19th ITEXPO, and TMC projects total attendance to once again exceed 7,000.

"The Internet Peering ecosystem has seen a dramatic shift in recent years away from the traditional Tier 1 carriers as more and more users and content have shifted to smaller, more focused networks," commented Kirkwood. "The content of my speaking sessions at ITEXPO will be particularly valuable to anyone involved with Internet operations, Ethernet technologies and the distribution of web content to users and devices."

"We are very pleased that Grant Kirkwood will be participating in this year's show. Mzima Networks is widely recognized and respected as an industry leader, and I am confident that our attendees will appreciate and value the opportunity to hear his perspective on IP Peering," said TMC president and conference chairman, Rich Tehrani. "Over the past twelve months, widespread deployment of IP Communications services by global service providers, businesses and governments has reinforced that this exciting technology is a viable, cost-effective communications solution. As a result, we are seeing a significant number of senior-level executives attending ITEXPO as a means of learning about the technology so they too can take advantage of its benefits."
