Multimedia Telecommunications vendors meet in
Lillestrom/Oslo, Norway this September - TANDBERG hosts this year's major
testing event - SuperOp! 2004 will include 3G technologies such as 324M and PSS
San Ramon, Calif., June 30, 2004 - IMTC, the International Multimedia
Telecommunications Consortium, has announced that this year's SuperOp! will take
place in Lillestrom near the Norwegian capital Oslo, where it will be hosted by
TANDBERG from September 10-14, 2004. As every year, SuperOp! will be the major
multivendor, multiprotocol, and multitransport interoperability testing event where
the multimedia telecommunications community has the opportunity to check the
compatibility of new products in an almost "real world" environment with systems
from different vendors. Participants in the IMTC SuperOp! represent leading
organizations, including not only producers of equipment but also protocol stack
vendors, network infrastructure, and multimedia and voice endpoint producers.
The IMTC SuperOp! is the most important testing event of the year for
organizations active in multimedia telecommunications, providing a unique
testing environment for new equipment and ideas, an environment no single
vendor would be able to set up economically on its own due to the huge diversity
of equipment, protocols and vendors. SuperOp! 2004 will allow producers of multimedia
conferencing and telephony products to test the interoperability of current and future
equipment in a mixed environment offering Internet, intranet, digital and analog networks.
In addition to the protocols and technologies tested every year, this year the
IMTC SuperOp! plans to utilize 3G networks to test its 3G-324M and Packet Switched
Streaming (PSS) products. All testing at the IMTC SuperOp! 2004 will be organized
by the IMTC Activity Groups and will contain interoperability and interworking tests
between IP networks and switched-circuit networks. As in previous years, the last
day of the IMTC SuperOp! will be dedicated to building a superconnection of the
components present, all being joined in one single conference. All testing results
are being carefully monitored and documented and will be presented to SuperOp!
participants for further investigation.
