INTERNET TRANSFORMATION PANEL
Where have we been, where are we now, and where do we need to go to transform our communications networks to an all-IP infrastructure?
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 16th
10:00am – 12:00pm
MANDARIN ORIENTAL HOTEL
1330 Maryland Avenue Southwest
Washington, DC 20024
FEATURING INTRODUCTORY REMARKS BY
FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai
The world is transitioning communications networks from the outdated analog and digital technologies of the past to modern all-IP infrastructure. The transition to Internet-based communications networks is transforming markets, cultures, and even governments. The United States was once the undisputed leader of this transformation, but our traditional advantages in the information and communications technology sector are eroding. Bureaucratic inertia and regulatory uncertainty are inhibiting investment in new IP-infrastructure and services in the United States while investment in Asia is surging. This panel will discuss how our current regulatory structure developed, the challenges it presents today, and options for accelerating Internet transformation in the future.
Please note that breakfast will be served.
