Frank Grillo to discuss hosted unified communications alternatives for small and mid-sized enterprises.

Cypress Communications today announced that Frank Grillo, executive vice president of marketing, has accepted an invitation to present a session titled, Hosted UC Alternatives for the SMB, at INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO West 2009 (IT EXPO West) on September 3, 2009. The session will be held at 9:30 a.m. at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, CA.

"Smaller businesses want to compete with larger enterprises on a level playing field -- deploying advanced video, hosted IP, presence, cloud computing, real-time & streaming video services and the like. Today's hosted solutions offer a means to an end -- enabling SMBs to cost-effectively deploy unified communications services without the cost and complexity of a traditional premises deployment," said Frank Grillo, executive vice president of marketing at Cypress Communications.

In this conference session, Mr. Grillo will discuss critical issues that hosted solutions must address, including bandwidth along the WAN link, interoperability of devices, integration of applications and devices, and cost parameters that can help SMBs achieve productive and cost-effective voice, video and data communications.

IT EXPO West, held September 1-3, 2009, is one of the leading IP Communications trade shows, drawing over 7,000 buyers and sellers of VoIP and IP communications products and services.

"We are very pleased that Frank Grillo will be participating in this year's show. Cypress Communications is widely recognized and respected as an industry leader, and I am confident that our attendees will appreciate and value the opportunity to hear his perspective on hosted unified communications," said TMC president and conference chairman, Rich Tehrani. "Over the past twelve months, widespread deployment of unified communications has reinforced that this exciting technology is a viable, cost-effective communications solution. As a result, we are seeing a significant number of senior-level executives attending IT Expo West as a means of learning about the technology so they, too, can take advantage of its benefits."
