Fonality CEO & CTO on 4 Panels at INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO Fall 2005

Fonality Co-Founders to Discuss Open Source, VoIP Mobility, VoIP for SMBs and Managing the Network for High-Quality Voice at Leading VoIP Event

LOS ANGELES – Oct. 5, 2005 – Fonality’s CEO Chris Lyman and CTO Adrian Otto will speak on four panels, ranging from VoIP for mobility and for SMBs to managing a VoIp network and open source, at TMC’s INTERNET TELEPHONY® Conference & EXPO Fall 2005, at the Los Angeles, California Convention Center. Fonality will also be exhibiting at the conference in booth 433.

INTERNET TELEPHONY® Conference & EXPO, held October 24-27, 2005, is the world’s largest and best-attended VoIP trade show.  Last February, the show drew over 6,200 buyers and sellers of VoIP products and services to Miami.  For this upcoming October show, TMC projects total attendance to exceed 7,500.
“Fonality is honored to be invited to speak on such a broad range of exciting topics at the Internet Telephony Conference and Expo,” said Lyman. “We look forward to engaging in important discussions about subjects so important to the growth of the IP telephony industry.”

Lyman will speak on three panels: Open Source Round Table, VoIP for SMBs and VoIP Mobility Reality Check.

Open Source Round Table will be a group discussion focusing on the current and future state of the open-source telephony market.
VoIP for SMBs will be a panel addressing the drivers of the SMB market, such as the challenges to utilize remote knowledge workers and the increasing pressure to control costs while delivering features that increase productivity and profits.
VoIP Mobility Reality Check will explore how VoIP is now a viable solution for wireless and WiFi users and how mobile professionals can incorporate VoIP communications wherever they connect.

Adrian Otto will participate in the Managing Your Network for High-Quality Voice panel, which will address the need for service quality management and how enforcing a centralized policy for end-to-end QoS and controlling network resources proactively can deliver high quality IP communications.

“We are very pleased that Chris Lyman and Adrian Otto will be participating in this year’s show. Fonality is widely recognized and respected as an industry leader, and I am confident that our attendees will appreciate and value the opportunity to hear their perspectives on open source, VoIP for SMBs, mobile VoIP and managing the network for high-quality voice,” said TMC president and conference co-chair, Rich Tehrani.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
