Thursday, 08 October 2009, 14:30 - 16:00, Room K

Advances in radio technologies have allowed evolutionary paths to be plotted for 3G and for Wi-Fi with greatly increased transmission capacities. There are also many alternative and potentially disruptive and/or complementary technologies including WiMAX and Wireless Gigabit. Technology neutrality is allowing operators greater freedom in their use of existing spectrum assignments.
KEY QUESTIONS: - How do you balance the interests of existing market players with new entrants? - What are implications of the extension of services to cars, trucks and planes? - Where will satellites be an affordable access method? - Is anytime, anyplace, any network achievable any time soon?
