IEEE Enterprise Networking (ENTNET) 2009
Tuesday, 1 December 2009 • 10:15 - 18:00 • Tapa Ballroom 3

ENTNET is a long-running conference organized under the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) for the purpose of promulgating an understanding of the development and evolution of enterprise-level networking technologies. Over the years the conference has been bringing together a rich diversity of leading-edge telecom experts from industry, universities, and government. The popularity of the conference continues to grow as the premier forum for researchers, engineers, and business executives in the networking space drawing an attendance from all over the world.ن

The 2009 event is focused on four enterprise-relevant themes:

  • Asia-Pacific Communication Perspectives, Issues, and Opportunities;
  • Advances in Enterprise Networking technologies at the LAN/WAN level, including IP(&IPv6)
  • Green IT and Green Networking; and
  • Wireless Technologies and Mobility

ENTNET, focusing on enterprise communication technologies, complements IEEE GLOBECOM in a very synergistic way, given that IEEE GLOBECOM focuses on areas of communications related to government, military, industry and academia. ENTNET's practical enterprise focus also balances out very well the more formal and analytical format of IEEE GLOBECOM.
