Location: Salon E

ISPs have been progressively adding more and more restrictions to IP packets flowing over their networks. Some of these are for good reasons and some not but the reality is that todays access networks, be it cellular wireless, WiFi, DSL, or Cable, are much different than we all learned in Networking 101. This talk will look at the realities of what applications have to deal with and the direction networks are likely to move in the next 7 years. Completion of the the IPv4 address space creates a new tipping point where the openness of the internet might change in a big way.

This talk will address how these changes will impact all kinds of communication and collaboration applications and what these applications can do to keep working in this evolving network.
