The International Packet Communications Consortium (IPCC, Booth 717) has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with CompTel/ASCENT under which the two organizations will work to accelerate the adoption of voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) and packet communications technologies and services.
Together, CompTel/ASCENT and the IPCC will pursue the development of a Joint Advisory Group to foster the development of guidelines and solutions aimed at increasing the deployment of VoIP and packet-based networks and services that would benefit the industry as a whole.
This MOU between CompTel/ASCENT and the IPCC signifies a whole new level of strategic cooperation between industry leaders in the development of VoIP solutions for service providers, says Michael Khalilian, chairman and president of the IPCC.
Working with the IPCC will give our members opportunities to learn about the technology and how it can be used to deliver quality, innovative services to consumers and businesses alike, says CompTel/ASCENT CEO H. Russell Frisby Jr. It will also enable them to be active participants in defining this evolutionary change.
Under the agreement, the IPCC will provide content development and speakers for panel discussions at CompTel/ASCENT Spring and Fall conventions and other VoIP educational conferences.
