SAN FRANCISCO (March 12, 2024) – Red Oxygen, a leading short message service (SMS) solutions provider, announces its CEO Tom Sheahan will participate in a panel discussion at VON: Evolution, a conference to explore the future of communications. The panel discussion with other industry experts will cover Restoring Trust in the Voice and Messaging Ecosystems.

“Trust is an integral part of the success of messaging, and it’s waned in recent years for multiple reasons,” said Sheahan. “I’m looking forward to discussing how organizations and carriers alike can go about improving trust with other organizations and consumers. I think removing the anonymity that hangs over federal regulations would play a key role in increasing that trust and removing national security risks, which is something I want to bring light to during the panel session.”

• What: Restoring trust in the voice and messaging ecosystems panel discussion
• When: Wednesday, April 10 at 10 a.m.

The panel discussion is open to all registered VON: Evolution attendees. The conference, which explores the intersection of telecom, AI, 6G and blockchain, is founded by Jeff Pulver, Co-founder of Vonage. It will take place April 10 – 11 at the Hyatt Centric in Silicon Valley. Other panel attendees joining Sheahan include Glenn Richards, Partner at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP, David Frankel, CEO of ZipDX, Jeff Stalnaker, Co-founder of First Orion, Alex Quilici, CEO of YouMail and David Erickson, Co-founder of Phound.
