"We are honored to be chosen to provide an industry perspective on both VoIP Peering and the Carrier Hotel market at the Internet Telephony Conference," said Hunter Newby, Chief Strategy Office of telx. "Our business as a carrier neutral Meet Me Room and Core Interconnection Facility operator in thirteen markets provides us with a unique insight into the VoIP Peering market, since many VoIP players choose telx as their Meet Me Room and Core Interconnection Facility because of the availability of VoIP Peering platforms and service providers. As a Carrier Hotel owner, and a company with deep relationships with other Carrier Hotels in part through membership in the Carrier Hotel Alliance (CHA), our observations and perspective in the space continue to evolve as the industry advances and new technology provides challenges to companies requiring Carrier Hotel and colocation services.

"We are very pleased that Hunter Newby will be participating in this year's show. telx 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 both VoIP Peering and Carrier Hotels," 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 INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO to learn more about the technology so they can make critical decisions affecting their own business."

Registration for the show is now open. Anyone interested may register by visiting www.itexpo.com. For information about telx, please contact Ilissa Miller at imiller@telx.com.
