Tadiran's Bregman

Ron Bregman
President & CEO of Tadiran

RB: A lot of things are happening. I’ll start by telling you that, for the beginning of 2007, coupled
with our new release of the Coral Sea softswitch, we’re going to be actively marketing this
through our existing channels and actively looking to add either partnerships or acquisition of distribution channels to grow the distribution for the product


Digium's Spencer

Mark Spencer
President of Digium

MS: Our experience was probably different than most companies in that we’ve been profitable
since 2002, and we didn’t really have any kind of immediate need for the money.


Cantata's Zionts

Marc Zionts
CEO of Cantata

What new things can we do and where can we do them? Those are the two questions asked
each day by users of communications devices, like cell phones, PDAs, softphones, and the like.


Sprint's Tony Krueck

Tony Krueck
Vice President of
Product Dev, Sprint

TK: In terms of the things we are doing from a VoIP perspective, the first set of VoIP products
that we’ve brought to market in some time has been our CPE-based managed IP PBX solutions,
which have been deployed by our managed services group for a couple of years.


Nortel's New CTO

John Roese

In terms of what my appointment to Nortel means to both the company and myself, Nortel has
a tremendous amount of innovation and intellectual capacity. Not many people really know
the depth of the company’s technology leadership and innovation activity today.


Packet8's Bryan Martin

Bryan Martin

In its early days, 8x8 developed technology and sold products that enabled service providers
to enter the emerging VoIP space. When the telecom downturn occurred, the company chose

Global IP Sound: Gary Hermansen

Gary Hermansen
Global IP Sound

Somewhere around the year 2001 I became familiar with a company called
Global IP Sound (GIPS). I can't remember the exact date but I do remember what I first thought
when I saw the company's application, which allowed truly amazing VoIP voice quality on
a wireless-enabled PDA.


Verizon Business: Nancy Gofus

Nancy Gofus
Vice President
Verizon Business

VoIP is reducing actual telecom costs by allowing for flat rate unlimited local and long distance.
In addition, moves, adds, and changes are easier, as is wiring and management.
