Briefing Panel at IETF 87 in Berlin – Improving Internet Experience: All together, now.

At IETF 87 in Berlin, we’ll hold a briefing panel titled “Improving Internet Experience: All together, now.” On Tuesday, 30 July, at 11:45am, panelists will discuss how to provide the best experience possible for their users and customers.

Join moderator Leslie Daigle (Internet Society) and panelists Stuart Cheshire (Apple Inc.), Jason Livingood (Comcast Cable), and Patrick McManus (Mozilla) as they discuss these key questions from the session abstract:

  • As diversity of some key pieces of the stack, for example TCP algorithms, on the Internet grows, how does this impact reliability and the delivery of consistent performance outcomes for the end user application?
  • What are the pressures of working with constrained devices and the protocol adaptations and revisions that are being developed for the ‘Internet of Things’ teaching us about improving performance for the Internet in general?
  • Given the challenges of modeling or simulating the complexity of the Internet, how can we robustly develop and deploy new mechanisms to improve performance and improve end-user experience?

Pre-registration is required to attend this briefing panel, and it always fills up well in advance. You can register starting today, and registration will open in two time blocks to account for the broad range of home time zones of IETF participants. Half of the available seats opened for registration at 09:00 UTC today, Wednesday, 10 July. The other half will be made available at 21:00 UTC.

We plan to provide a live (and archived) audiocast; we’ll update the website with more information soon.

We hope you can join us in Berlin, or for the audiocast online!
