Mtg: State of the Network and Future Directions, and What IEEE Might Do to Help the Industry!

by @ 11:56 am. Filed under ALL, Communications, Engineering Mgmt

WEDNESDAY March 9, 2011
SCV Communications Chapter
Speakers: Dr. Wonjong Rhee, ASSIA Inc.; Stu Jeffery, CEO, Seena; Dr. Michael Lebby, Translucent Inc.; Geoff Thompson, CEO, GraCaSI S.A.
Time: Networking, food and drinks at 6:00 PM; Presentations at 6:30 PM
Cost: $2 – $5 donation suggested
Place: National Semiconductor Auditorium (Bldg E), 2900 Semiconductor Drive, Santa Clara
RSVP: not required

We have assembled a power panel of five industry experts to present and discuss the status, trends, and future directions of the “Network” in each of their subject areas.? Included will be DSL and evolution of high speed Internet access over copper twisted pair, the Mobile Broadband Operator’s Dilemma (and techniques to solve it), Photonics, Optical Components & Networks,? Evolution of Ethernet (will it be everywhere?),? Comcast’s Triple Play Delivery Network and business class services.
The panelists will comment on the current state of each of these areas, how it has changed from prior decades, what’s driving it now (growth engines), and what may be coming in the near future (e.g. cloud computing, higher speed wireline Internet access, 4G mobile broadband, more video services, etc).? For example, the mobile operator’s dilemma- the revenue is in voice services, but the demand is for high speed data with low latency.? One panelist will explain how selected new technologies address mobile operator needs for high network traffic capacity with lower costs.
The format of this meeting will be? quite different than a regular IEEE ComSocSCV meeting.? After the obligatory 10 minute opening remarks, we will convene the technical meeting.? Each panelist will speak for up to 10 minutes on their observations and assessment of their individual field(s) of expertise.? This will be followed by a highly interactive panel session with audience Q & A encouraged.
This will be your best opportunity of the year to interact with highly knowledgable networking industry experts.? It will also be the ONLY ComSocSCV meeting to be moderated and chaired by Alan J Weissberger.
