  presented by: Patrick Ferriter, Director of Product Marketing,
                Zultys Technologies

    The Zultys 'ZIP 4x4' is a Linux-based IP phone compatible with any
    IP telephony system that uses the SIP (Session Initiation Protocol)
    standard.  It supports voice encryption, five-way conferencing, and has

    Zultys chose Linux after becoming annoyed with problems they had with
    vendors of 'traditional' real-time operating systems.  Linux has allowed
    them to port large applications into the product, which would have been
    impossible with other OSes.  They were able to rapidly develop without
    using specialized software debugging tools and emulate their applications
    on a standard PC.  Their field sales force are able to use simulators
    running on laptops to demonstrate the product.

    Patrick has over 6 years experience in the communications industry.
    He holds a BSEE degree from Purdue University.  Prior to joining Zultys,
    Patrick achieved a detailed understanding of the technical protocols in
    voice and data communications during his tenure with Lockheed Martin,
    McDonnell Douglas, Coppercom, and Zarak.  Having become an expert in the
    areas of technical and field support, testing, and product management,
    Patrick helps drive the market requirements from concept through to
