As wireless technologies improve in speed, they enable an increasing range of applications. In many cases, customers use standard networking applications over wireless networks. However, wireless networks, particularly wide area networks, continue to pose significant challenges for applications and networking protocols compared to wireline networks. These challenges include:
PCCA testing of 3G networks has shown that dramatic improvements are possible through the addition of optimization services.
The purpose of this meeting is to address current issues with today's networks, the range of technical approaches that address the issues, and what the industry needs to do to provide wireless services that simplify reliable enterprise application deployment. Specific questions include:
June 16 , Workshop. 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
Hands on opportunity for participants to demonstrate and evaluate wireless optimization solutions. If you wish to demonstrate a technology or product in this workshop, please contact the PCCA. Attendees can observe how vendors have implemented products, and can also test and quantify their effectiveness.
The workshop will be primarily held in a meeting room at the Marriott. The meeting room will be arranged with tables around the perimeter. The room is on the first floor, so we don't expect problems with wireless coverage. If you need a high-speed Internet connection, the hotel provides STSN Ethernet-based service in guest rooms, and you can set up the demo in your guest room. You can also use your guest room for demonstrations if you wish to be selective about your demonstrations. We can direct people from the meeting room to the guest rooms as needed.
