WASHINGTON, D.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The ATIS TechThink Technology Conference, to be held June 19–20 in Chicago in conjunction with NXTcomm 2007, will feature chief technology officers and senior executives from the communications industry’s leading service providers and vendors who will engage in a broad-ranging dialogue on the technologies that will deliver Next Generation communications and entertainment networks. TechThink is sponsored by AT&T, Verizon, Cisco, Nokia Siemens, Tellabs, Qwest, and Telus.
“The session is designed to be highly interactive and get to the root security issues impacting operators and customers today”
Today’s converged network landscape gives users more control than ever over what they want to experience, when they want to experience it, and through which medium. “Revolutionary changes in technology are altering the user experience in ways never expected,” said Susan Miller, president and CEO of ATIS. “TechThink offers a unique value at NXTcomm. Through dynamic, interactive panel discussions, TechThink will provide an understanding of the advanced networks of the future and the emergent technologies shaping the user experience.”
By way of example, the ATIS TechThink session entitled “Security for the Rapidly Evolving Broadband Network” will present the views of leading equipment vendors and software companies with regard to the current network security landscape — one that is evolving in response to advancements in IP networks and growing bandwidth. Perspectives will be offered on the direction of security solutions, highlighting key challenges service providers should anticipate as they migrate to Next Gen applications and services.
“The session is designed to be highly interactive and get to the root security issues impacting operators and customers today,” said panel moderator Barry Greene, Chief SP Security Architect, Cisco. “Expect an energetic discussion which will expose the added security risk which comes with convergence. Our goal is to expose the realities all operators should be considering as they migrate their networks.”
