ITEXPO (News - Alert) is revving up as executives, technology buyers, sellers, resellers and manufacturers from companies of all sizes and industries are beginning to converge on the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas for the world’s largest and best-attended communications and technology trade show. The conference, running from Monday, August 26, to Thursday, August 29, will feature a plethora of informational sessions, exhibitors, keynote speeches, and panel discussions where attendees can learn, forge new business partnerships, and collaborate together.
Of the many hot technology trends to be discussed at ITEXPO, Voice over IP (VoIP) is surely one of the fastest growing. Momentum (News - Alert) for voice communication delivered entirely over an IP network, whether via landline or mobile broadband, is increasing by the day. However, there is a misconception that this increase in demand is an indication of satisfaction with VoIP quality.
At a session titled “VoIP Audio Quality,” Doug Makishima (News - Alert), chief operating officer of D2 Technologies, will join other key industry leaders to analyze what can be done to address the issue of voice quality on today’s VoIP services and why better voice quality is a business benefit and not just “nice to have.” The session will discuss the trend of HD Voice, what’s inhibiting its adoption and use, the performance levels offered by today’s over-the-top (OTT) services, and whether there are limits to voice quality. D2 Technologies is a leading provider of VoIP and converged IP communications software for devices used in 4G and next-generation IMS networks delivering voice over LTE (News - Alert) (VoLTE), VoIP over Wi-Fi, or Rich Communication Suite (RCS) joyn services, and thus Makishima’s insights are not to be missed.
Makishima will be joined by HP Baumeister, director of digital media technologies at Fraunhofer (News - Alert) USA, and moderator Doug Mohney, editor-in-chief of HD Voice News. The presentation will take place on Wednesday, August 28th at 1:15 p.m. (PDT). Those interested in attending can still register online or over the phone.
