The Knowledge Oasis in Muscat (KOM) is holding an open session on Voice over Internet Protocol (or VoIP). The meeting will take place on Tuesday April 5 at 5.00pm in KOM Building 1, first floor, Muscat hall. The session will be delivered by Saleem Jawad Al-Khabori, an advisor to the Networks and Technology Group at Omantel. The session is being held as VoIP is considered by KOM to be a hot issue in telecommunications because it holds the prospect of using broadband connections to the internet for low cost, highly featured substitutes for traditional telephone services. The session will discuss whether VoIP might be the killer application that drives the deployment of broadband connections to most homes and business and, as such, ignite a hi-tech boom. This session will cover a number of issues including technology, costs, potential impact on traditional telcos and how VoIP will influence who be the ultimate winners and losers among consumers, investors, equipment suppliers and service providers. KOM is looking for business people and government policy makers interested in understanding how VoIP will impact their day-to-day operations to attend.
