This may be the most dynamic and disruptive time in the history of the ICT industry. Numerous changes — including the rapid development of cloud and M2M, exponential wireless growth and lightning-fast innovation cycles –– have created new opportunities while also placing unprecedented demands on the network. With this challenge as the backdrop, the Telecommunications Industry Association is convening top executives, technologists, strategists and policymakers for an intensive, highly interactive event next month in Washington, D.C.
TIA 2013: The Future of the Network ––held Oct. 7–10 in Washington, D.C. — will feature C-level roundtable discussions, conversations and presentations, as well as keynotes by the leadership of Alcatel-Lucent, Amazon, AT&T, Bell Labs, CenturyLink, China Mobile, Frontier, GENBAND, Neustar, Samsung, Sprint, Verizon and The Weather Company, as well as FCC Acting Chairwoman Mignon Clyburn and influential members of Congress. The conference will explore critical issues impacting the future of the network through six educational tracks focusing on broadband capacity, M2M, cloud, software-defined networking and more. GigaOM Research will also present a preconference workshop providing mission-critical insights into the future evolution of media distribution and consumption, the demands it will place on the network and implications for network operators.
