VON Italy report

The VON Italy has been a great happening, with more than 2000 visitors and lots of exhibitors. Jeff presented his vision to the Italian audience, reminding us that the "V" of VoIP actually stands for "Video". It seems to us in Abbeynet that V stands for a lot of "things". And that IP is not the transport layer "over" which we put "things".

On the customer point of view, the WWW is the platform where applications are available to him/her. It is seen as the transport media, as the convergent layer of all the services that build a Rich Internet Application (that is, RIA).
Somebody says that VoIP is not a service but an application, I'd say that it is the third dimension on the "mute" World wide web: it's Voice Over Web.

I've had the opportunity to speak on behalf of Luca, who couldn't be there with us, and I've noticed how our presentation schema, general vision and the market approach is rather different from those presented by other speakers.
Diversity is always a good thing to see in environments. But is this diversity a merit just for us or for the whole market?

Regarding the presentation level, I've received good feedback for being interactive and easy to understand (no big theories, no long numbers, no big schemas), but this has been done at the cost of not really going into things. Those who are interested in insights of our vision can contact me, Luca or Giacomo.
