Other notable speakers included Wayne Speechly, a Communications Executive at Internet Solutions, John Holdswoth, the Chairman of ECN and Jed Hewsen, the Director of 1Stream.

The presenting sponsor for the conference was Even Flow, a prominent trade distributor of VoIP solutions. The platinum sponsor was snom, a worldwide developer and producer of VoIP phones, while silver sponsors included MTN Business, Farsouth Networks, Yealink, Patton Electronics, Co., Sangoma and Epygi.

Doug Hill, the director of Patton-Inalp Networks for the Northern Europe, Israel and
South Africa regions, released a short public statement about the matter. He stated: “VoiceSA 2010 was an incredible event. The conference brought together VoIP market leaders from all over South Africa. With over 250 delegates, the South African VoIP market was represented by the companies that are taking the right steps towards fully integrated IP services. With over 400 registrations for VoiceSA 2011, as a vendor we believe that this is where we need to be present to move into the next three year period of incredible growth in the South African VoIP Market.”
