Next week is VoiceCon in Orlando, Florida. For me this is always the annual "big event" in the VoIP space since it is so heavily focused on the enterprise, and because it attracts involvement from folks such as Cisco, Avaya, Nortel, Microsoft, AT&T, and so on. The program also includes a lot of sessions that feature speakers from end-user organizations such as Ford & American Airlines. The audience is a virtual "who's who" of large enterprise VoIP planners & managers.
Alan Sulkin's annual "IP Telephony System RFP" on Monday is another "don't miss" session, featuring speakers from just about every major vendor in the IP telephony space as they respond to Alan's RFP.
I've been swamped with meeting requests this year, and I've got a full schedule for the days I'll be at the show, including speaking on two SIP-related panels on Wednesday, March 8th. I'm also planning on spending a few days with Mickey.
