I had visited India Telecom 2009 exhibition held from 3rd December 2009 to 5th December 2009 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, India. Though it was mainly an exhibition about Indian Telecom Industry, but I found many companies from IVR industries present there. I thought I would update about them.
These are the companies I found :-
It came with CTI boards VXML interpreter. While I was visiting the stall, there were some visitors and I did not speak to anyone, did not fail to pick up their brochures. But I think, Aculab got good number of visitors.
Among many Chinese Telecom companies in the exhibition, I never expected to see Openvox. I was looking for Miss Lily who commented about Donjin DN300 board. They were offering various IP PBX solutions based on Asterisk. I think, would start working on building PABX using Asterisk too.
Synway was there too with their many CTI boards. When I saw OpenVox, I was certain to see Synway too. Synway is now quite known in CTI market in India. There were many visitors when I was passing through it.
4. Alliance Infotech
I saw stall of Alliance Infotech too. It is a Indian IVR company, based in delhi and they are also reseller of Digium boards. I forgot to take a picture of their stall.
After seeing the above IVR related companies, I was hoping, I might get to see about few more too! For example Dialogic, Donjin, Pronexus with VBVoice, Invox with their IVR designer products as well as Hosted PBX, Syntellect with their Envox products. But no, they were not there!
Overall, I think, there were less visitors this time at India Telecom 2009. There were many notable absentees. Also, many stalls were empty. If the empty stalls and lesser crowd at India Telecom 2009 exhibition in crowded India with 1.2 billion population, are any indication, than, most probably, Indian Telecom industry may not be doing very well in 2009.
