Industry Leaders Join Forces to Provide In-Depth Educational Content Online
Norwalk, CT, [June 16, 2006] — Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC®) announced a partnership with J Arnold & Associates (JAA), a leading IP Communications research and consulting firm, to execute a series of Web Summits covering important topics in the fast-growing IP communications space. These Web Summits focus on the needs of service providers, and address the leading edge issues driving their business as well as provide strategic insights for leveraging their technology investments to deliver value for their subscribers.

Web Summits are one-hour seminars conducted via video conference online. Attendees log on to the seminars, watch presentations and ask questions over the Internet. Though directed towards service providers, these web summits will appeal to a broader spectrum, including vendors, developers, industry groups and the financial community.

The first series of topics for the Web Summits has been identified based on initial research with industry leaders, and others will be added in the near future. The initial areas of coverage include:
·         VoIP Peering
·         Internet broadcasting/IPTV (News - Alert)
·         Open Source
·         Web 2.0
·         IMS
·         Triple Play
·         WiMAX/Wireless
·         SIP
“I am very excited to announce this partnership and look forward to working with J Arnold & Associates to deliver this valuable content to TMC’s vast network of readers around the world,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC President and group editor-in-chief. “The Web Summit concept has proven to be a very successful for both vendors seeking to educate their audience as well as the attendees who need to learn about rapidly-changing technologies.”
“I believe the approach we're taking to produce these Web summits will offer great value, not just to the sponsoring companies, but of course to the audience we expect to attract,” said Jon Arnold, Principal of J Arnold & Associates. “With TMC's extensive market reach, and JAA’s independent analyst perspective, the elements are in place to deliver the kind of thought leadership that so many people are looking for.”
The first TMC/JAA Web Summit, covering VoIP Peering, is scheduled for Thursday, July 27th, 2006.
