#ITSPA winter workshop tomorrow – life beyond POTS and #VoIP #security Gigaset Magrathea

If you can you should make it to the Internet Telephony Service Providers’ Association (ITSPA)Winter Workshop being held tomorrow at The King’s Fund, 11-13 Cavendish Square. Sponsored by Gigaset and Magrathea two main topics are being discussed:

  1. Life beyond POTS and
  2. VoIP security

Both are interesting areas. The first looks at whether we really have moved beyond just using the telephone for simple voice conversations. The second addresses the wave of VoIP fraud that has been going on in 2010, directed in the main at unsecured open source PBXs. We will be discussing an ITSPA developed position paper on the subject which will include advice on best practice for securing your VoIP service.

The event is between 2 and 5 pm tomorrow with drinks afterwards. If you want to come please contact the ITSPA secretariat at [email protected] or 020 7340 8733. I am moderating both panel sessions.

On this occasion we have a Keynote Speech from Microsoft, an update from BT Openreach on their NGN VoIP plans, a talk from Polycom and a panel discussion on “Wholesale “VoIP. There is also an update from Matt Townend from Illume on the “State of the Union” in the VoIP market.
