Information for Presenters
Users have an
increasing number of communications networks available to them as
devices support more networks. Many smartphones today are Wi-Fi
enabled. New laptops will support Wi-Fi, 3G and WiMAX. Some
applications are well suited for one connection type but not others.
For example, downloading a 3 GByte movie may make more sense over Wi-Fi
than 3G. How can users, operators and other service providers best
manage these powerful yet complex networking environments?
The meeting will
address the following types of questions:
- What are the different
emerging architectures for best managing multiplicity of network types?
- What new interfaces and
methods are becoming available in new operating systems such as Windows
7 for managing connectivity?
- How can connectivity be kept simple to not alienate
- How can network types be
combined in single sessions for higher throughput?
- What are policy management approaches
to control what applications have access to what networks?
- What are the emerging business models
for supporting multi-network operation?
- What are the most important standards
assist with multi-network operation? What is the status and relevance
of IEEE standards IEEE 802.21 and IEEE 1900.4?
- How will Generic Access Network (GAN)
and IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) address multi-network operation?
that meeting presenters, and many of the attendees, are world leading
technologists on the subject material. We allocate sufficient time for
discussion that attendees can ask questions of greatest interest.
Moreover, the meetings allow informal networking during breaks where
attendees can exchange important information.
