For more than a decade, WOCC has enjoyed great achievement
in gathering telecommunication professionals to exchange ideas and to extend
their professional domains. It offers a convention every year to discuss
both business and technical topics in the telecommunication industry,
especially business opportunities between the USA and Asian/Pacific regions.
The theme of WOCC2004 is Regrowing the Telecommunications Industry in the
Twenty First Century.
After year 2000, the world experienced economic downturn and the burst of
the Internet bubble. This global regression has set back the industry
including enterprises in wireless, optical and multimedia technologies.
Fortunately, the oversupply fatigue in global market chains seems to recover
gradually according to recent marketing statistics. It is strongly believed
that the next wave of economic growth has silently set forth and that the
industry will experience the first tremendous growth in the twenty first
century. To embrace this trend, the conference is devoted to investigating
the technologies and business drivers that will stimulate the recovery of
the telecommunication industry.
