DD01M1: In Building Wireless
Leo Holzenthal Jr. (University of New Orleans, USA)
Ahmed Himny (Andrew Wireless Solutions, LLC, USA)
Ali Nemati (Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, USA)

The distribution of wireless telephony and data signals within buildings and structures has become a large industry in the wireless industry. This session will begin with a presentation of the signals and spectrum that is desired, and the technologies used to build these systems. As an example of a project, a very scale, neutral host type, fiber optic based distributed antenna system was conceived to provide wireless telephone and radio signals to subscriber units within the confines of a large international airport.

DD02M1: Wireless Communication Engineering Technologies (WCET)
Presenter:  Celia Desmond (World Class Telecommunications, Canada)

The WCET Certification Program has been designed to address the worldwide wireless industry's growing and ever-evolving need for qualified communications professionals who can demonstrate practical problem-solving skills in real-world situations. The certification program and related topics are covered.

13:50 – 15:30

DD03M2: Wireless Access for Vehicular Environments (WAVE) I
Presenters:  Tim Weil and James Marousek (Booz Allen Hamilton, USA)

The Department of Transportation Vehicular Infrastructure Integration (DOT VII) program, paving the way for the Intelligent Transportation Systems of tomorrow, envisions a future in which intelligent vehicles routinely communicate with each other and the transportation infrastructure in real time.

DD04M2: Next Generation Service Oriented Networks
Presenter:  John Wittgreffe (BT Group PLC, UK)
IT resources and other telco capabilities are exposed for direct access by application designers and developers during D&D, and by users at runtime. Resources can be configured to adapt and continually optimize to make sure that the Quality of Experience for end user applications is kept high.

16:00 – 18:00

DD05M3: Wireless Access for Vehicular Environments (WAVE) II
Presenters:  Dimitri Khijniak (Technocom, USA)
Tao Zhang (Telcordia Technologies, Inc., USA)

Wireless access in vehicular environments (WAVE) technology comes into sight as a state-of-the-art solution to contemporary inter-vehicle communications, which is anticipated to be widely applied in the near future to radically improve the transportation environment in the aspects of safety, intelligent management and data exchange services.

DD06M3: Emergency Services for IP Networks
Presenters:  Richard Barnes (BBN Technologies, USA)
Michael Loushine (Telcordia Technologies, Inc., USA)

The focus is on Citizen-to-Authority Communications. Users increasingly rely on multimedia communications that take place on next generation networks based on the Internet Protocol (IP). This reliance means that the average user will one day reach for this multimedia communication system to place what could be the most important communication of their life: an emergency services call.
