TECH.2 : Service and application delivery in a converged world
Tuesday, 06 October 2009, 16:30 - 18:00, Room K

Next generation networks in an all-IP world will provide high capacity pipes for the delivery of services. What will fill those pipes, who will be the service providers and what will be the key competitive differentiator? Forecasters paint a future dominated by waves of consumer video, a future in which best effort will no longer be sufficient and where real time and non-real time services have to coexist. Service providers will need to deploy architectural frameworks that support policy control of access networks and continuously monitor and ensure the user's quality of experience. Quality of experience, driven by technology though the implementation of appropriate architectures and best practices, is becoming a key competitive differentiator.
