Hosted Unified Communications: An Inclusive Technology

PHILADELPHIA, PA & HONOLULU, HI - January 17, 2011 - Alteva, a Unified Communications (UC) solution provider headquartered in Philadelphia, today announced that William Bumbernick, chief innovation officer, will speak at PTC'11, the Pacific Telecommunications Council's 33rd consecutive annual conference, January 16 -19th in Honolulu, Hawaii. Bumbernick will join other communication industry thought leaders from Polycom, IntelePeer, Inc., SimpleSignal and Broadcore in a breakout session on virtual services, Tuesday, January 18th, 3:45 -5:15pm.

With the emergence of UC, enterprises are starting to morph their voice, video, instant messaging, and presence systems into one. Making these previously disparate systems work together requires a fair amount of sophistication and resources at times of shrinking IT budgets. Hosted and managed services are suddenly very attractive to enterprises; a service provider can take over the responsibility for integrating the various systems. This session will explore a pragmatic and practical view of UC, examining which UC functions bring real value to enterprises and how hosted or managed service providers can help deliver this UC functionality.

"As technologies such as true hosted UC are developed, you can start out on the phone or via an IM and then overlay different applications such as desktop sharing, application or video in a seamless, non -disruptive way, giving participants the ability to collaborate using an ultimate solution," said Bumbernick. "UC offers the power of circular communication where different applications become inclusive technologies, working together in a hosted landscape."

PTC'11 offers an important and substantial platform for understanding where the industry is and where it may be heading. This year's theme "Connecting Life 24/7," will examine how telecom is changed and challenged by always -connected users with new requirements and preferences. Every January, PTC presents a unique forum for service providers, equipment and software developers, content providers, investors, researchers, and policy makers to forge alliances, negotiate agreements, and to learn from one another's experiences.
