Dallas, TX (PRWEB) March 3, 2007
Unified Communications has been a focus at telecommunications conferences over the past few years. Many presentations discuss the concepts, but few concentrate on addressing implementation hurdles. David Chambers, Chief Technology Officer of Aastra USA Inc., together with a panel of industry experts, will discuss requirements for implementing Unified Communications with an existing VOIP infrastructure on Tuesday, March 6 at VoiceCon Spring 2007. "I am pleased to have an opportunity to bring some practical planning criteria to what is often a theoretical discussion," said Chambers. "Aastra has a great history of applying technology to create real-world solutions and we are committed to staying an industry leader."
