Join key professionals working in cutting-edge telecommunications development to learn about and debate today’s hot topics! The forum will focus on two main themes - LTE vs. WiMAX technologies and Next Generation Internet and provides a platform for debate and review of the place of these technologies in 21st Century engineering.

The LTE vs. WiMAX session will explore the current state-of-the-art in both technologies and examine their predicted role in the future development of mobile networks. After listening to presentations from experts in the field, a debate will take place on competing technologies emerging in the marketplace and the challenge of choosing between LTE or WiMAX technologies.

The Next Generation Internet session will examine predictions made that the continued rise in users and bandwidth will result in catastrophic collapse, and will debate such issues as:
• How will the internet cope when billions of wireless devices and appliances become connected?
• Will it be able to cope when users wish to generate and distribute HD quality video?

Key Talks at the Forum include:
