IEC's Broadband World Forum Looks Forward to 2008 Olympics

By Spencer D. Chin, TMCnet Web Editor

As Beijing prepares for the 2008 Olympics, the International Engineering Consortium (IEC) brings its own Olympics of global innovation to the China World Hotel at the China World Trade Center with China Netcom (News - Alert) as the official host sponsor.
Nearly 300 industry experts from around the world, including leaders from Ministry of Information Industry (MII) and the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), will speak in more than 60 sessions at the Broadband World Forum Asia next week.
The Broadband World Forum Asia will focus on the latest broadband technological advances, including global innovations and mobile technologies as they relate to the 2008 Olympics.
"Recognizing Beijing as the host of the 2008 Olympics, it's fitting that the Broadband World Forum Asia shares some of the broadband and mobile technologies that will be implemented at the Games next year," said IEC president John Janowiak, in a statement. "Attendees will learn of exciting, new user experiences, which China Netcom experts will preview both on the exhibition floor and in our educational conference programming."
The Broadband World Forum Asia will show carriers, content providers, and equipment providers how to provide these new services and applications to users and how to meet the challenges and requirements set by the Olympics.
