pulvermedia Announces the 2005 'pulver 100'
One Hundred Privately-Held Companies Representing the Future of the IP
Communications Ecosystem to Be Honored at Fall 2005 VON
MELVILLE, New York, Sept. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- pulvermedia today announced the 2005 "pulver 100" -- which is the first and foremost listing of privately held growth companies that represent the future of IP communications. Each company named to the pulver 100 will be honored at the upcoming Fall 2005 VON event, which takes place September 19-22 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Originally introduced in 2002, the pulver 100 features private companies in the communications sector that have substantial real-world deployments and enjoy significant growth rates. The value chain characterized by the pulver 100 differs from the vertically integrated telecom model of the last century, focusing more on a networking-industry model that espouses open interfaces, connectivity decoupled from services, and software decoupled from hardware. "The pulver 100 has become an indicator of the leading edge in IP communications, and the companies named to this year's list represent the future of our industry," said Jeff Pulver, Founder and Chairman of pulvermedia.
