"The Linux development community will again have a position on the International Softswitch Consortium (ISC) thanks to Vovida Networks, Inc. of San Jose, California. "Because we respect and appreciate the talents of the Linux development community and are interested in ensuring that developers from around the world have an active role in the adoption and growth of Linux within markets for datacom and telecom convergence on IP networks," said Alan Knitowski, President and CEO of Vovida Networks, "we are continuing our sponsorship of a corporate seat for the Linux community on the International Softswitch Consortium."

"With an estimated 10 million Linux developers around the world," Knitowski went on to state, "we want to be sure that not only the developers would be represented at the ISC, but also that their representative would have equivalent rights and voting privileges as any of the enterprise member companies. We are pleased to sponsor a seat on the International Softswitch Consortium and will work with the Linux community to achieve widespread support for open source, royalty free standards within datacom and telecom."

"Linux developers can find additional information regarding the position, nominating of candidates and voting at the Vovida Networks website, www.vovida.com, in the Open Source - Linux section of the site. Voting will be conducted at Vovida Networks' website August 14th - 17th. The election is being held in conjunction with the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo (San Jose Convention Center)."
