INET Conferences

The Internet Global Summit - A Net Odyssey - Mobility and the Internet

The 11th Annual Internet Society Conference
5-8 June 2001 - Stockholmsmässan - Stockholm, Sweden

Technology Summit: Mobility Technologies Thread

Chairpersons: Gabriel Montenegro, Sun <> ; Steinar Dalin, Ericsson <>

This thread attempts to look out the mobility landscape. It being a sparse landscape, we will be somewhat limited. Five sessions explore in different styles and in different themes. We will have futuristic visions, and looks at themes like IPv6 and optimization mechanisms. We will shift our attention from the core of the network to the devices and how to serve content to them, finalizing with a session on operator perspectives. The focus is on wide-area uses of wireless technologies, such as we see in 2.5G and 3G, although, in conjunction with these, local area wireless will also be discussed.

MO1 Wed 6 11:00-12:30
Mobility: Setting the scene and Outrageous opinions panel
We invite one of the original thinkers in computer science to share with us his vision of what the implications with respect to service architectures may be in this new wireless world. This session finishes with a very interesting and controversial panel which questions the need for wireless research.
