Ethernet 0ver Any Infrastructure– Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow 
 
With customer demand for high-capacity Ethernet booming in many market segments, carriers are faced with a variety of platform options as they look for the best way to deliver Ethernet services.  Whether you serve small and large businesses, provide wireless carrier backhaul, or target financial services, education or niche verticals, customer needs vary by market segment. As a result, no one flavor of Ethernet is the obvious solution. This session will discuss the advantages of copper, fiber and wireless platforms, as well as a multi-technology gateway interface, while also exploring how the quality and latency associated with each platform meet customer needs.        .

IP Interconnections


The migration of switched traffic to VoIP creates many possibilities for changing the way that calls and services are delivered, potentially bypassing layers of intermediary carriers who introduced their own costs and quality issues.  This session will discuss ways to optimally provide both TDM-to-IP switching and native IP-to-IP switching.  In addition, the panel will examine how mobile broadband services are driving a transformation to IP and Ethernet with the deployment of new technologies; and how open source technology can enable companies to differentiate their network and services, generate new revenue streams and reduce bottom line costs.

In addition, speakers will address why it is essential for all stakeholders to prepare their networks and Web sites for IPv6. And lastly, the session will outline how service providers can make the smooth transition from circuit-switched to pure IP operations, while leveraging this transformation into new capabilities and new markets.
