1 IMTC iNOW! - The Key to Major Market Share The initiative for V/FoIP equipment interoperability Jim Yu Director of Development ITXC Corp 600 College Road East Princeton, NJ

2 Fall Interop Event -- Portland, Oregon USA -- December 1, 1999 IMTC iNOW! Vision Share voice, fax and data traffic across All IMTC iNOW! Compliant IP telephony platforms and networks regardless of the brand of equipment

3 Fall Interop Event -- Portland, Oregon USA -- December 1, 1999 What is IMTC iNOW! Industry initiative to quickly achieve interoperability among IP telephony platforms in advance of all the necessary standards documents being completedIndustry initiative to quickly achieve interoperability among IP telephony platforms in advance of all the necessary standards documents being completed iNOW! is not a standard, but based on standards and the standards processiNOW! is not a standard, but based on standards and the standards process How did iNOW! come about?How did iNOW! come about? –Based on first true interoperability between VocalTec, Lucent and ITXC –Strong, unelicited interest from the vendor community SupportersSupporters –over 40 supporting companies (vendors, service providers, testing facilities) publicly announced short term plans to be iNOW! compliant iLocus Daily - May 18, 1999iLocus Daily - May 18, 1999 “The (iNOW!) interoperability initiative now boasts nearly 30 supporting vendors. More importantly, the vendors supporting it control some % of the IP telephony gateway market.”

4 Fall Interop Event -- Portland, Oregon USA -- December 1, 1999 IMTC iNOW! Supporters (As of July, 1999)

5 Fall Interop Event -- Portland, Oregon USA -- December 1, 1999 IMTC iNOW! Activity Group Charter  Guide members to build interoperable IP telephony products based on iNOW! Profiles  Provide a forum for technical exchange and to resolve iNOW! interoperability issues  Define test plans by which the member companies can test their products  Support, promote and participate in IMTC and ETSI TIPHON testing events  Consider additional features and a wider scope in future iNOW! Profiles  Encourage companies to adopt the iNOW! Profiles in their products  Work with ETSI TIPHON and ITU-T Study Group 16 to ensure the iNOW! Profile is harmonized with their specifications.
