Internet Society Briefing Panel at IETF 85
Internet Untethered? (PDF)
When it happend: Tuesday, 6 November 2012
The mobile data network world has changed significantly in the course of the last 4 years as game-changing smartphones have come online, tablets are hitting the scene. Users have taken up these devices with enthusiasm, and put them to uses not ever envisioned by their creators or the operators of the networks that support them. And with increasing speed and power (of devices and mobile data networks), users are expecting broadband Internet experience while on the move. This panel will explore the evolution of the mobile data network reality through key questions:
How have these new devices impacted the evolution of mobile data services and offerings of mobile Internet, especially in terms of bandwidth management?
What are the key factors in evolving from a mobile data service to mobile Internet?
Many ubiquitous web-based services (Wikipedia, Facebook, Twitter) are increasingly accessed through dedicated applications on the smartphone. What are the drivers for this and where is it taking the Internet user's reality?
Leslie Daigle is the Chief Internet Technology Officer for the Internet Society. She has been actively involved in shaping the Internet's technical evolution for more than a dozen years. Her role with the Internet Society is to provide strategic leadership on important technical issues as they relate to ISOC's ongoing programs. She has worked with the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) since 1995, and was an appointed member of the related Internet Architecture Board (IAB) from March 2000 to March 2008.

Pete Resnick, Qualcomm
Pete Resnick is a Principal Engineer in the Office of the Chief Scientist at Qualcomm where he currently leads the education effort on using open source software in Qualcomm products. He has been working in the IETF since 1992, attending his first face-to-face meeting at IETF 32 in Danvers in 1995. He has written several RFCs (mostly in the area of Internet email), chaired assorted Working Groups and Birds-of-a-Feather sessions, served on the Internet Architecture Board from 2004 to 2006, and has been most active in the Applications Area, where he currently serves as Area Director. Pete holds a BA in Biological Sciences and an MA in Philosophy and Computer and Systems Sciences from Binghamton University in New York. He was a doctoral student in Philosophy at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in Urbana, Illinois (where he still lives), but left to join Qualcomm Incorporated in 1994 as a software engineer on their Eudora email program.
