Agenda

 

The future of Internet-driven innovation remains a difficult topic to assess. Some trends, including the increasing importance of wireless platforms, are not hard to spot, but many of the game-changing technologies and trends are likely to surprise us. We do know that the dynamics around competition and innovation in the Internet space will raise a series of policy, business, and technical issues that will challenge the ability of 20th century institutions to keep up.

 

In this conference, we will look ahead at innovation in the Internet environment, taking a hard look at three policy dimensions that are getting increasing attention. First, we will examine the forces and strategies around how to enable interoperability and interconnection in the Internet Protocol-based environment. This examination will ask how issues traditionally addressed by telecommunications regulation-the physical connection of networks and the oversight of voice communications will be handled in a world where some of the most important network connections (say, Internet backbone networks) and voice interoperability (say between Voice over IP providers) are outside the scope of today's regulatory regime.

 

Second, we will discuss the emerging competitive forces, battles, and policy responses in the Internet space, evaluating the role not only of traditional competition policy on the part of antitrust authorities and telecommunications regulation, but also the role of intellectual property rights. Finally, we will evaluate how and whether wireless communications will facilitate innovation and competition in a wireless broadband environment where the opportunities for access to spectrum, both licensed and unlicensed, are far from determined.
