INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO, held since 1999, is the world’s largest and best-attended VoIP trade show.

For this upcoming January show, TMC projects total attendance to exceed 8,500.
“AT&T has been delivering VoIP services to enterprises for nearly a decade. The groundbreaking AT&T CallVantage service remains one of the most recognizable in the VoIP market. The company continues to roll out innovative services for businesses and consumers. I can’t imagine a more appropriate speaker to discuss the bright future of VoIP service offerings than Mr. Shepcaro and AT&T,” said TMC president Rich Tehrani.
As vice president of business strategy and development, Shepcaro serves as AT&T’s chief strategist, leading the company’s transformation from a traditional telecommunications company to a leading integrator of enterprise and application networking solutions.
Shepcaro joined AT&T Business in June 2002 as vice president/GM-application networking & emerging services with responsibilities including managed security and business continuity solutions, metro optical solutions, managed hosting & application management, contact management services, media services, network integration services and networked application portfolios. His team led AT&T’s entry into utility- based computing services.
In March 2004, he assumed the responsibility as the overall transformation officer for AT&T, accountable for programs to build shareholder value and create a framework for the future. These include: network transformation, converged services and business simplification.
“It’s an honor to be part of INTERNET TELEPHONY’s powerful lineup of speakers,” said Shepcaro. “I look forward to sharing our vision of the next-generation of services over IP, including IP-based communications and collaboration services.
