These seminars provide vital information from the perspective of IP-PBX vendors, SIP trunking service providers and other distinguished voices in the industry."

The ROI of SIP Trunking

Case studies detailing real-world deployments will illustrate how SIP trunks deliver a significant return-on-investment.

Security Seminars, Live Demos, "How-To" Sessions on Deployments
