FREMONT, Calif. and TOKYO -- The Founding Members of the VoIP Forum of Japan (VFJ) announced today the establishment of this forum to bring together and further the efforts of the Japanese VoIP marketplace to accelerate the deployment of VoIP both domestically and globally.

“The IPCC is pleased to be considered one of the founders of the VoIP Forum of Japan,” said Michael Khalilian, Chairman and President, IPCC. “The members of our organizations will greatly benefit from our global relationship. We are looking forward to working together on packet telephony deployment in the Japanese market.”

“The formation of the VoIP Forum of Japan represents a major milestone in the development of VoIP markets and technologies said Mitsutoshi Hatori, Professor Dr., Chairman of the VoIP Forum of Japan (VFJ). “Our forum will provide a unifying force for the VoIP and packet communications industry in Japan and will help us to more closely monitor global technical, regulatory and market developments, and will be the point of contact with other national and global VoIP organizations.”

The VFJ and the International Packet Communications Consortium (IPCC) will work closely together on simplifying and accelerating the adoption of Voice over IP (VoIP) and converged packet services in Japan and globally. The two organizations have announced liaisons between their Boards of Directors and their Marketing and Service Providers Working Groups. The IPCC and VFJ will also share specific marketing and technical expertise and will set up a Joint Advisory committee to make recommendations to vendors and service providers on the implementation of VoIP and packet communications services.

“There are no boundaries in the global VoIP market,” said Kevin Nethercott, Director, VoIP Forum of Japan. “This forum will bring a global cooperation and sharing of ideas that will rapidly accelerate and enhance the development of the global VoIP industry.”
