"Home, Road and Work Have Merged Via the Internet"
Norm Schryer AT&T Research Labs
Folks work all the time, everywhere: at home, on the road and at work. The network is everywhere, both wired and wireless. Provisioning, operating and maintaining such distributed systems opens new universes of services and disasters.
EXAMPLES: Folks listen to music over the data network and don't want it disturbed; if your VPN/IPSEC vendor flunks certificate handling then folks at home and on the road are dead -and so are you.
Standards, interoperability and vendor management are the keys to success and continued survival. Norm's talk will cover the modern world's neat functionality, distributed responsibility and central fragility.
Norm Schryer received a Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Michigan in 1969 and then joined the Computing Science Research Center of AT&T Bell Laboratories. In 1996, at the AT&T/Lucent/NCR tri-vestiture, he moved to AT&T Labs Research, where he is presently Division Manager of Broadband Services Research: cable modem and optical fiber links to homes and the wireless remote piloting of vehicles/telepresences.
