VoIP Convention - Paris Expo/Porte de Versailles/Hall 5, November 7-8

According to the studies carried out by the leading industry analysts such as IDC, Gartner and Forrester, Voice-over-IP (VoIP) and its related convergence applications using the IP protocol represent a rapidly developing market.
Such technologies bring together voice, video and data communications in the same infrastructure and incorporate media applications that enhance the way businesses interact with their customers.
Destined to respond to the real need for more information on this subject, the VoIP Convention is set to be an essential event for the networks and telecoms industry. More extensive than a simple exhibition and yet also more concrete than a conference, the VoIP Convention provides a unique platform to explore all aspects of the emerging IP market. It addresses large and small businesses, as well as public services – helping functional, operation and financial managers, to make their strategic choices.
As a major integrator of telecoms solutions for operators and other businesses alike, Bull will be playing an active role in the event alongside our partner Thomson Cirpack, a major supplier of platforms for IP networks. Our experts will be delighted to welcome you on our stand C8 and to tell you more about our infrastructure solutions and IP Centrex services.
