VoIP is rapidly replacing traditional phone services in ways that we may not be aware of. Alarm security dealers need to understand the pitfalls. It is no longer clear or guaranteed which calls are carried by traditional phone networks and which are VoIP.
Hunt Valley, MD (PRWEB) June 06, 2012
More than 120 U.S. independent security alarm dealers, manufacturers, and telecom professionals will gather at the ‘first of many’ summits to discuss the impact of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology on alarm signals and security monitoring.
The VoIP summit organized and hosted by AlarmWATCH, Inc., a leading UL-certified central monitoring station, will take place on Thursday, June 7, 2012, (noon to 3:00 pm) at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Hunt Valley, Maryland.
Mr. Guy Kline of AlarmWATCH, Inc. will moderate the summit with a distinguished panel of industry experts: Larry Byers of DSC Tyco Products, Steve Farkas of Interlogix UTC, Jim Filer of Honeywell, Dave Mann of Certified System Design, and Brad Nye of Engage Communications and Protection Plus.
“VoIP is rapidly replacing traditional phone services in ways that we may not be aware of,” said Guy Kline, V.P. of Sales and Marketing for AlarmWATCH, Inc. “We need to understand the pitfalls, especially when it comes to the security industry and protecting our customers. It is no longer clear or guaranteed which calls are carried by traditional phone networks and which calls are VoIP; this could threaten the delivery of alarm signals to the central station.”
