Infrastructure Mix and Killer Apps for Mobile Broadband to be Debated Next Week at the
Broadband World Forum Europe in Paris
The IEC's Broadband World Forum Europe Hosts an Exciting Hot Seat Session Discussing the Enabling Technologies for Content Delivery in a Mobile Environment
CHICAGO – 3 October 2006 – The International Engineering Consortium (IEC) will present key players at the Broadband World Forum Europe to discuss the importance of content and mobility next week at the CNIT La Défense in Paris from 9–12 October, with France Telecom as the official host sponsor.
The Thursday Hot Seat session, titled, "The Emerging Mobile Context for Broadband Content," will explore what the fixed-mobile ecosphere will look like as well as the optimal enabling technologies and infrastructures behind it. The focus will be on how service providers can best prepare themselves for this market environment.
IEC Vice President of Content Tom Costello stated, "This contentious Hot Seat session promises to generate both heat and light on the mobile-fixed ecosphere both in terms of the best enabling technologies and innovating broadband content services."
Moderator Angelo Morelli, executive partner of Accenture's Communications & High Tech Operating Group and global lead for Service Delivery Platform, further commented, "This Hot Seat discussion will take a look at the technology realities behind fixed-mobile broadband services: what technologies are enabling the mobile broadband environment, the prospects for fixed-mobile convergence, and the role that the legacy wireline network is going to play in all this."
Representing differing views at the session is Motorola Networks and Enterprise's Bilal Saleh, who is director of Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Latin America Caribbean, Application Services, and Yossi Saad, vice president of Marketing and Business Development at Actelis Networks.
Morelli continued, "Attendees should come away with a better understanding of where we stand in achieving all this, where things are headed, and how carriers are taking advantages of the emerging opportunity afforded by mobile broadband and fixed-mobile convergence."
More than 250 industry experts will speak in nearly 70 educational tutorials, plenary panels, and sessions at the Broadband World Forum Europe and its co-located event, the WiMAX Global ComForum.
All industry professionals are invited to attend the Hot Seat session on Thursday, 12 October at 11:00 at the Broadband World Forum Europe with a complimentary Exhibits Plus Pass available at the show.
