Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) August 26, 2009
The Fall session of the Andrew Seybold Wireless University, in its 15th year as an Official Show Partner at International CTIA Wireless I.T. & Entertainment, will take place at the San Diego Convention Center, Room 29C, in San Diego, Calif., it was announced today by Andrew M. Seybold, CEO and Principal Analyst, Andrew Seybold, Inc. (ASI).
Andrew Seybold, a highly regarded pioneer wireless industry analyst and acknowledged expert, has structured a day-long program that starts with a foundation in wireless basics and builds out with examinations of current and emerging applications and technology. He and ASI Partner Barney Dewey will explore the issues, the trends, how IP plays in wireless, and the convergence that will blur future boundaries. Both are renowned for their straightforward, no holds-barred approach, plain language presentations, and engaging styles.
Seybold and Dewey will explore the current status of spectrum allocations, LTE, WiMAX, Wi-Fi, TV White Space and device OS wars; look into the future of applications, content and technologies, focusing on what will fuel demand for services beyond voice; define and clarify issues surrounding bandwidth, open access, location-based services integration and personal privacy; and examine the two Internets, the impact Internet companies are exerting on wireless firms and changing business models.
"Things get really interesting when we get into the two Internets and the impact Internet ventures are having on wireless companies, especially when it comes to 'free' and 'open' access over unlicensed spectrum," Seybold said. "This is something that every wireless-related company must consider."
The afternoon program will focus on the future of applications, content and related technologies, and will feature Andrew Seybold's MobileApp Challenge, providing a unique look into the future of blended services, data and applications. ASI Partner Bob Hirsh will offer attendees an up-close look into how some of today's most innovative thinkers are creating and deploying new mobile services that distance themselves from the rest of the field as Finalists provide short demonstrations. Attendees select the winner.
