We are looking to move to IP telephony. I need to get up to speed on all that is involved to do this. I am looking to get some training and attend a conference. I was wondering what the best conference is out there that deals mostly with IP telephony. Does any one have any recommendations? Right now I am looking at VoiceCon 2007 or Internet & Telephony. Does any one have any experience with either one of these conference? Are they any good?
It's a user's group, so there are plenty of user based presentations, but Cisco is one of the sponsors, so you get some valuable feedback from them. There are plenty of non-disclosure meetings, so be sure to sign the non-disclosure form before you go so you can attend those.
There is also Networkers, but that's more broadbased, but I'm sure you can concentrate on IPTel sessions there and not have any time to spare.
You'll make good contacts at both, but you'll likely get quicker replies from the users you end up meeting. ;)

The short answer is that you don't.... That isn't entirely true while at
the same time it kind of is, but for the most part you don't configure
the softkeys. You enable or disable them via TCL. Here is the long
