The fourteenth Annual Wireless and Optical Communications Conference (WOCC) will bring together technical experts and business leaders from the North America and Pacific Rim to discuss multimedia, optical, and wireless communications technologies and business opportunities. The theme of WOCC 2005 is Convergent Communications over public mobile wireless networks, public fixed broadband wireline networks, and private customer premises networks. The integration of these three networks is the focus of a new next-generation network (NGN) providing convergent user-centric services that are no longer associated with the types of network access or content media. Instead, these convergent user-centric services will offer seamless delivery of multimedia applications including voice, data, image, and streaming video independent of any access technologies. The transport layer protocol is converging on Internet Protocol (IP) that propelled the growth of World Wide Web (WWW). The network and service providers will need to deploy standard-compliant converged networks and offer these new value-added services to save operational cost and grow their revenue. Convergent Communications can truly be considered as the enabler for the next phase of growth for the telecommunication industry.
