Alteva CEO to Speak on Disaster Recovery at Channel Partners Conference & Expo 2010

Updated: January 06, 2011

PHILADELPHIA, PA -- 02/23/10 -- Alteva, North America's largest enterprise hosted VoIP provider, today announced that CEO William Bumbernick will speak at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo (March 1-3) in Las Vegas. Bumbernick will speak on "Positioning Hosted VoIP for Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery" as part of the Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery workshop on Monday, March 1st, 2:30-4:15 pm.

Unlike most other disaster recovery products, if positioned properly, hosted VoIP is not perceived as an additional cost, but rather a cost savings. Bumbernick's session will show how, with hosted VoIP, you can assure inbound call capacity to any planned or unplanned recovery site, mitigate failure points on the premises and with the carrier, and save the customer money.

"Businesses choose hosted VoIP for many reasons: lower upfront fees, unlimited scalability up or down, mitigation of technology obsolescence, but during this session, I will focus on how hosted VoIP improves telecommunications continuity and brings profit opportunity to the channel," said Bumbernick.

Bumbernick added that the importance of preparing to recover your voice systems for unplanned downtime -- power outages, acts of God, fires, floods, etc. -- does not go away in a downturn. "Whether it's an environment-related catastrophe or small neighborhood blackout, these interruptions can cost your client thousands upon thousands of dollars in lost revenue, potential customer loss and even a reduced corporate image," said Bumbernick.

The Channel Partners Conference & Expo is the communications industry's only event exclusively for indirect sales organizations -- agents, VARs, systems integrators, interconnects and consultants -- focused on transforming their businesses to become converged solutions providers. Over the past decade, this premier conference and expo has tripled in size to more than 3,000 participants, providing exhibitors with a more diverse audience, more traffic and more exposure for their brands.
