VON Show Week

Updated: January 07, 2011

This week is perhaps the biggest week of VoIP and telephony news of the year. Because this is the week of the VON conference and exhibition.

But what we WILL do is take a thoughtful look at all the news later in the week and tell you what it means - if anything - for the average phone system buiyer and small businessperson.
