The article reports that Next Generation Networks (NGN) 2005 will be held from September 26 to 30, at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C. Now in its 19th year, the NGN Conference has earned its honored status as the must-attend event for anyone charged with setting network strategy and direction, and for those who need to know what will shape both public and enterprise networks over the next two to five years--and beyond. The keynote lineup for NGN 2005 is set, and is the strongest that has ever been assembled: Bram Cohen, founder of Bit Torrent, the protocol that is estimated to account for more than 50 percent of today's Internet traffic. Roger McNamee, one of the most respected venture capitalists--not to mention rock 'n rollers--in Silicon Valley. Roger will analyze the challenges and opportunities high-tech companies and investors face in the current environment, which he calls The New Normal. Mark Wegleitner, senior VP and CTO of Verizon. He will present his views on what it takes for a service provider to succeed in next-generation networking.
