today announced that it is partnering with Telephony Magazine to host an IPTV pre-conference workshop as part of Fall 2006 VON, scheduled for Monday Sept. 11, 2006 at the Boston Convention & Exposition Center.
Focusing on IPTV Deployments, Content and Carrier Strategies, Telephony’s full-day event will feature the award-winning Telephony editorial team, and it will provide additional keynote speakers and panelists with real-world IPTV experience. The conference will highlight successful IPTV strategies, and it will dissect the network architecture, content plays, and deployment tactics that service providers seek to make IPTV part of their overall service strategies.
“IPTV is an increasingly critical part of the competitive strategies of telecom service providers and promises to change the way consumers interact with video,” said Jason Meyers, director of content development for Telephony. “The IPTV content at Fall VON will provide a clearer picture of how IPTV will shape the future of telecom for service providers, as well as technology and content developers.”
In addition to the Telephony IPTV Workshop, pulvermedia will also feature a complete conference track dedicated to IPTV, throughout the four days of Fall VON. Additional ITPV content scheduled for Fall VON includes:
