Telecom meeting to focus on emerging networks

February 16, 2006

Technology in today's fast-moving telecommunications industry is all about convergence. The "next big thing" are the so-called Next Generation Networks (NGN). The idea behind NGN is to seamlessly transition the current public telephone network used for transporting telephone conversations, faxes, and data to the technology behind the Internet, the public data network used for sending e-mail and other data-based telecommunications.

The annual Workshop on Synchronization in Telecommunication Systems, sponsored by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS), will address issues likely to emerge as NGNs are developed. The three-day workshop will be held March 14-16, 2006, at the Omni Interlocken Resort in Broomfield, Colo.

The meeting also will include tutorial presentations and networking opportunities for telecommunications synchronization professionals at a variety of different career levels. Network operators, strategists, design engineers, system architects and synchronization planners from the wireline, wireless, enterprise and utilities sectors will participate in interactive workshop sessions and panel discussions.
