Handheld, Wireless, and Open: Priorities for the Mobile Future Internet

Traditional desktop and laptop computers today are increasingly making use of wide-area wireless networks, and all shapes and sizes of mobile devices are making more use of the Internet. These globally connected nodes stretch the boundaries of requirements for Internet hosts published 21 years ago in Internet Engineering Task Force RFC1123 and RFC1122. They are introducing new challenges and opportunities for the development of a future Internet. The implications that reach beyond networking, also impacting choices for, and support of, applications technologies.

This panel identified and discussed the top open issues for enabling the mobile future Internet based on open standards.
