SEATTLE, WA—January 17, 2008 - Active Voice, LLC, a global leader of Unified Messaging (UM), Unified Communications (UC) and speech-activated solutions, today announced Eyal Inbar, General Manager of Marketing, has accepted an invitation to present a session titled, “Unified Communications Strategies” at TMC’s INTERNET TELEPHONY® Conference & EXPO East 2008 on January 24, 2008 at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami, Florida.

INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO, held January 23-25, 2008, is the world’s largest and best-attended IP Communications trade show.

The upcoming show in January will be the 17th INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO, and TMC projects total attendance to exceed 7,500.

“I am excited about this opportunity to represent Active Voice, and speak to how the global business landscape is evolving as unified communications becomes more pivotal to improving workforce productivity,” said Inbar. Mr. Inbar’s presentation will focus primarily on the importance of a gradual and phased approach in migrating from traditional voice mail to full unified communications, and will discuss the importance of business continuity, versatility and innovation in the successful deployment of critical UC applications.

“We are very pleased Eyal Inbar will be participating in this year’s show. Active Voice is widely recognized and respected as an industry leader, and I am confident our attendees will appreciate and value the opportunity to hear his opinion on unified communications,” said TMC president and conference chairman, Rich Tehrani. “Over the past twelve months, widespread deployment of IP Communications services by global service providers, businesses and governments 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 INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO as a means of learning about the technology so they too can take advantage of its benefits.”
