Mobile VoIP – March 5th at 7pm

Free Registration (required): Click Here

Mobile VoIP will advance significantly in 2007, with the potential for disrupting the existing mobile voice business (ZDNet). Will operators move to block VoIP, fearing bit-pipe irrelevance, or will they leverage the technology to attract subscribers and open new revenue streams? What do hardware manufacturers like Nokia and ventures like Mobiboo, fring, and iSkoot stand to gain?

Join our panel of investors, practitioners, and experts to discuss this exciting topic in mobile.

Panelists:

  • Bob Geiman – General Partner, Polaris Ventures. Bob is an industry expert on VoIP who sits on the board of directors of Bridgeport Networks, a leading provider of MobileVoIP applications and Fixex/Mobile Convergence software infrastructure, and is a former executive at MCK Communications, an early innovator in the field of SIP-based enterprise voice products.
  • Nitzan Shaer – Entrepreneur-in-Residence, IDG Ventures. Nitzan founded and led the Mobile Product group at Skype Technologies. Nitzan joined Skype from Microsoft where he served as Senior Product Manager of Emerging Business for the company’s Mobile and Embedded Division.
  • Timothy Jasionowski – Technology Director and Senior Technologist, Rich Media, Nokia Enterprise Solutions. Timothy is responsible for research and early-stage development of new Enterprise-class products in the real-time communication market, including Voice and Video over IP, Presence and Availability Management and Instant Messaging. Before joining Nokia, Timothy was Chief Technology Officer of Streamdoor (UK), an IP voice application services provider focused on Hosted IP Communication services, and Director of Product Incubation and Strategy at Qwest Communications, responsible for next generation product development.

Moderator:

  • David Feldman – Managing Director, Feldman Advisors, LLC, a strategy and business development advisory firm. Feldman has served major mobile operators and wireline broadband providers, for whom VoIP is both a threat and an opportunity, and previously pioneered “voice over system software distribution” by recording the “Quack” beepsound included in every copy of Mac OS for about a decade in the 90’s.
