No Jitter features original daily blog posts, news and news analysis items, as well as regularly-appearing columns and in-depth articles on the technologies and markets that compose this fast-growing segment of the technology industry. No Jitter will enjoy a symbiotic relationship with VoiceCon and its Web site,, the industry's leading conference/tradeshow in enterprise communications, and will have access to video, audio and presentations from the VoiceCon events.

The editor and lead blogger of the site is Eric Krapf, who also serves as program co-chairman of VoiceCon. No Jitter will operate under the direction of VoiceCon General Manager and program co-chairman, Fred Knight.

"No Jitter gives our audience of enterprise telecom and IT decision-makers a place to go on the Web every day for the kind of information that they get in an intense, face-to-face form at VoiceCon," Knight said.
