Net Neutrality: Can Open be governed?
(4GK-04)

Wednesday - 01/20/10,  12:30-1:45pm

FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, in an effort to safeguard the free and open Internet, has recently proposed formalizing six principles of network openness that would apply to all platforms that access the Internet.

So now the question is “Can the concept of open be governed?” This panel of distinquished communications visionaries from Google, AT&T and leading communications law firms discuss how these principles will be incorporated into policy. This session will address questions such as what companies, services and devices will be subjected to these rules? And will the jurisdiction of the FCC have to be modified to enable these principles?

Application Nirvana? When Broadband Wireless Meets SIP
(4GK-05)

Wednesday - 01/20/10,  3:30-4:00pm

The PSTN / Landline market, as well as the application market has totally embraced SIP, but can we expect SIP in the broadband wireless world? This panel will delve into this subject and address:

· Will SIP be an integrated solution supporting One Voice strategies or part of the over the top solutions?
· Will a rebirth of Presence use become part of the Wireless broadband experience?
· Will SIP find a home on the web, or become irrelevant?
· Will this be the true test of Net Neutrality?
· Should we expect the current application innovation to use SIP and will that provide for something more than voice and video communication?

Keynote Presentation - Polycom
(4GK-06)

Wednesday - 01/20/10,  4:00-4:30pm

Jeffrey Rodman has been at the forefront of audio and video communications for most of his career. Rodman co-founded Polycom in 1990 and has been instrumental in the realization of Polycom's iconic products for voice, video, network communications, and other media. He is CTO of Polycom’s voice communications solutions group.

In 1984, Rodman was recruited to build a hardware engineering organization and implement a revolutionary architecture for the new startup PictureTel (then PicTel), building the foundation for a family of systems that transformed the industry, and continued as director of hardware development through PictureTel’s formative years. In 1980, Rodman joined Harris Video Systems where he became director of engineering, pioneering new digital video processing systems for broadcast and production applications. He also spent six years developing and enhancing video and test capabilities for military guided missile systems for Hughes Aircraft Company. During this time, Rodman created a novel approach to sound synthesis that formed the foundation for his Master’s thesis, and co-founded Specialty Video Systems to market digital video effects to the entertainment industry.

Drawing from this diverse experience, and from his background as virtuoso pianist and composer, Rodman has developed a keen appreciation for the importance of clear, reliable vision and sound in human interaction, and the ways in which delivery of transparency in perception can be delivered in remote conferencing. He sees the industry move toward IP telephony and media as an epochal change in the nature of personal remote communications, one that presages dramatic enhancements in sound quality, reliability, and richness of features. Rodman has spoken and presented at numerous forums, and is delighted to be a continuing part of Polycom, where he is a strong champion of technologies and products that bring the best and clearest quality to users around the world.

Rodman holds a BSEE Cum Laude in electronic engineering from CSUN.
