Executive Telecom Briefing on Internet Bandwidth Supply & Demand to Focus on the Effect of Video & New Technologies on N

BOSTON, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 10/20/06 -- IGI Group and the Boston University School of Management are co-organizing an Executive Telecom Briefing on "Internet Bandwidth Supply & Demand: the Effect of Video & New Technologies on Network Infrastructure Opportunities." The event will be held on Tuesday, December 12, 2006, at the Boston University School of Management. Dr. Andrew Odlyzko, Director of Interdisciplinary Digital Technology at the University of Minnesota, will chair the event.

"Internet traffic growth is still rapid, but not as rapid as a few years ago," commented Dr. Odlyzko. "On the other hand, progress in technology has continued to lower costs. In the long run, disregarding temporary overcapacity, such as we are recovering from, and industry consolidation, the race between growing traffic and growing transport capacity will be key to determining the health of the telecom industry. Right now there seems to be a balance between the two, but what will the future bring, and what can the industry do to affect it? The Briefing will explore answers to these questions."

The Executive Telecom Briefing will address the following topics:

Supply Side

-- What is the present bandwidth supply status in both domestic and International networks?

-- Is there an excess of dark fiber? What is happening to dark fiber prices?

-- Where is the dark fiber, and how do you find it?

-- How much bandwidth will be needed in the access networks?

-- What is the impact of mergers and acquisitions on network capacity supply?

-- Will carrier consolidation and foreign ownership pose a national security threat?

Demand Side

-- What types of services are driving Internet traffic?

-- What are the most bandwidth hungry applications, now and in the future?

-- What are the strategies of Google, Yahoo, eBay, MSN, YouTube, etc.?

-- What will be the impact of "net neutrality" legislation?

-- What impact will IPTV and VoIP have?

-- What will be the impact of video and user-generated video?

-- What will be the impact of networked gaming?

-- Where will money be made on new Internet services?

-- What will be the impact of new technologies?
