Following the successful Internet Society panels on IPv6 held in San
Francisco during IETF 74 and on Securing the DNS held in Stockholm
during IETF 75. I want to make you aware of an upcoming ISOC panel
scheduled during IETF 76 in Hiroshima, Japan:
Subject: Internet Bandwidth Growth: Dealing with Reality
Place: Orchid Room, ANA Crowne Plaza Hotel, Hiroshima, Japan
Time: Tuesday, 10 November 2009, during the IETF lunch break
The possibility of the Internet's impending collapse due to the
explosive growth in Internet bandwidth use is a recurring high-
profile theme in the popular media.
However, the reality of measuring and understanding Internet
bandwidth growth and its implications at macro-scales is complex.
While policy debates around issues such as "network neutrality" are
underway, network operators are already managing their networks to
address issues raised by bandwidth-intensive applications.
This briefing session will share, in accessible terms, the realities
of measuring bandwidth growth on the Internet today, as well as
efforts to identify and deal with issues it raises, addressing
questions such as:
o Is there anything different about bandwidth growth today that
will cause problems not faced in the past?
o Are there better ways than those currently employed by network
operators to manage issues raised by bandwidth-intensive
o How does related work underway in the IETF factor into these
Panelists will include:
o Leslie Daigle, ISOC (Moderator)
o Kenjiro Cho, IIJ
o Danny McPherson, Arbor Networks
o Richard Woundy, Comcast
o Lars Eggert, Nokia Research Center, IETF Transport Area Director
Online Registration Opens on 30 October 2009.
Due to high demand and limited space at previous panel events, the
Internet Society is providing advance information about registration.
