IEC’s Broadband World Forum Europe Probes Minds of Top-Level Executives in Exclusive Plenary Panel
The International Engineering Consortium (IEC) will present an exclusive plenary panel at its Broadband World Forum Europe 2007 discussing technological innovations that result from the conversion of voice and data transmission
CHICAGO – September 27, 2007 – The International Engineering Consortium (IEC) will present “Creating Technological Innovations — Taking Advantage of Opportunities” at the upcoming Broadband World Forum Europe 2007 in Berlin. Fifty sessions, workshops, plenary panels and keynote addresses will take place this 8-11 October at the Estrel Convention Center with Deutsche Telekom AG as the official host sponsor.
“More than 80 percent of last year’s registrants consisted of executives, directors, and managers,” commented IEC President John Janowiak. “I think the reason we’re able to draw this level of delegation is because of the quality of speakers presented in our educational programming to present the latest cutting-edge information to our delegates.”
Chaired by Wolfgang Schmitz, senior executive vice president of the technology engineering center at Deutsche Telekom - T-Com, the plenary panel will discuss what technological innovations result from the conversion of voice and data transmission and the opportunities and risks for service providers and customers.
Panelists include Mr. Basil Alwan, president of the IP division at Alcatel-Lucent; Mr. Tony Bates, senior vice president and general manager of the service provider technology group at Cisco; Mr. Scott Kriens, chairman and chief executive officer at Juniper Networks; Mr. Stefano Pileri, managing director of technology at Telecom Italia; and Mr. Vicente San Miguel, chief technology officer of Telefónica.
The Broadband World Forum Europe 2007 speakers will analyze technological risks, new opportunities, efficiencies yielded, customer benefits, customer needs, and new customer responsibilities associated with conversion.
Panelist San Miguel commented, “The BBWF Europe has grown through each of its precedent editions, both in number of attendees and content relevance, and it comes right at a very exciting moment in our sector with the arrival of fiber solutions for the residential and the small and medium enterprise segments, along with the data explosion in mobile networks. Business, regulatory, and technical challenges are capital. During this panel, we’ll have the opportunity to share our visions and the state of the art of each one these challenges, and from different points of view: operators, manufacturers, content providers, etc.”
Speaker Kriens added, “In many minds, this debate centers around whether it is the network or the application driving innovation in our industry…we believe that the crux of the argument is actually at a much higher level – it is globalization that drives innovation within both the network and the application. In a flat world, high-performance networking brings secure applications and services together over a single infrastructure to enable a successful business.”
