Opening keynote presentation
Bob Metcalfe – From ALOHA to Ethernety
Bob Metcalfe, UT Austin Professor of Innovation and Ethernet co-creator, sets the scene with reflections on how CSMA emerged from Hawaii, the early choices and challenges, and some ongoing implications of Metcalfe’s Law.

A reunion of the brains behind the biggest revolution in human communications since the invention of movable type – and a rare opportunity to see them reflect on those times. What was the world like before personal computers? How did Ethernet emerge from Arpanet and ALOHA? What was the need? Had they any idea where this invention would take them, and the world?
Panellists: Norm Abramson; Dave Boggs; Bill Hawe; Radia Perlman
The 1980s witnessed the birth of the Local Area Network, and an explosion of LAN technologies – DECNet, WangNet, AppleTalk, HYPERchannel, VG-AnyLAN, ARCNET and Token Ring to name a few. A decade later, Ethernet had seen off all these competitors. What was it about Ethernet – as technology and/or business model – that caused this? And what would today’s world look like if, say, Token Ring had triumphed?
Panellists: Bob Belleville; Dan Pitt; John Shoch; Pat Thaler
In the heady days of market liberalization it is easy to forget the significant role that government can play – not only in backing fundamental research but also supporting standards and breaking anti-competitive monopolies. Industry also scorns the “ivory towers” of academia at its peril, for they provide the flood of published findings to inspire a tidal wave of startups that keep incumbents on their toes. Industry, academia and government – three forces that work wonders in harmony, but how often is this achieved? Which nations get it right? Our panel seeks fresh solutions beyond politics.
Panellists: Judy Estrin, CEO, EvntLive; Yogan Dalal, Partner Emeritus, Mayfield Fund; Bill English; Paul Grams, Exploration Technology Directorate, NASA; Bill Spencer, Former head of Xerox Research and PARC
Ethernet was the answer to a vision – a vision of a distributed computing architecture with a PC on every desk linked to shared printers and servers. Now taken for granted, this was revolutionary in the age of batch processing and mainframes, and it transformed the way we do business. Was this revolution inevitable? Could it have taken a different path? To what extent does the cloud reverse that trend? Our panel explores the long-term implications of these fundamental choices. What lies ahead?
Panellists: Radia Perlman, Executive Vice President Platform Systems Division, Intel; Gordon Bell, Principal Researcher, Microsoft; Glenn Ricart, Founder & CTO, US Ignite
What has GbE, WiFi or Carrier Ethernet got in common with a 2.49Mbps Ethernet running on coax? At the core of Ethernet stands a de jure standard, but around it has evolved a business model driven by fierce competition, interoperability, and rapid evolution tied to backward compatibility. Is this the ideal balance between the market need for global standards, and the creative demand for freedom? What can today’s entrepreneurs – and standards bodies – learn from this highly successful model?
Panellists: John D’Ambrosia, Chairman, Ethernet Alliance; Geoff Thompson, Independent Consultant and Emeritus Member of the IEEE 802 Executive Committee; Nan Chen, President, MEF; My Le, Professor, Stanford University
Ethernet has proved to be the answer, but can we clarify the question? A panel of CIOs and senior execs from industry leaders spells out the key challenges facing enterprise IT today – including virtualization, BYOD, management and security. Is technology serving business needs, or is the tail wagging the dog? Our panel clarifies the way forward, and challenges Ethernet designers to evolve solutions – as they have consistently managed in the past.
Panellists: Sachin Gupta, Snr. Director, Enterprise Networking Group, Cisco; Arpit Joshipura, Vice President of Product Marketing, Dell; Mike Banic, VP Marketing, HP Networking; Steve Collen, VP of enterprise marketing Juniper
In this panel, senior executives from service providers and carrier solution vendors discuss the relatively recent role of Ethernet in bridging the “telechasm” separating the LAN and WAN. As Ethernet approaches the universal language predicted by Nan Chen, it looks less and less like a networking technology, and more and more like a service offering – with serious implications for the carrier market. Our panel needs to identify the critical issues and lay down a new road map for the way forward.
Panellists: Howard Charney, Senior Vice President, Office of the President, Cisco; Said Ouissal, Vice President, Juniper ; Mark Durrett, Director, Marketing, Overture; James Walker, Vice President, Managed Network Services, TATA Communications ; Ms Yali Z Liu, Executive Director, Product Technology, Verizon
A panel of some of the finest brains in the industry is invited to propose and explore new architectures. What are the promised benefits, or challenges, of Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Content-Centric Networking (CCN)? What other new types of Ethernet or other radical approaches could emerge, and what is their likelihood of becoming tomorrow’s buzzword?
Panellists: Faraj Aalaei, President & CEO, Aquantia; Shezhad Merchant, Chief Strategy Officer, Gigamon; Stu Bailey, CTO, Infoblox ; Glenn Edens, PARC Program Manager, Content Centric Networking; Bruce Davie, Office of the CTO, VMware
Introduced and chaired by Fritz Nelson, Vice President and Editorial Director, InformationWeek
Fritz Nelson – our “talk show host” introduces a series of big names and rising stars among IT entrepreneurs, grilling each one to find out what motivates them, where they find their inspiration, and what IT horses they are currently backing for future big returns. When each has had their turn, they are invited to explore and decide the best way forward. It’s your final chance to find out what will happen next – from those that make it happen.
Speakers: Andy Bechtolsheim, Founder, Chief Development Officer & Chairman, Arista Network; Henry Samueli, co-founder of Broadcom Corporation; David House, Chairman, Brocade Communications; Vice Chairman, Computer History Museum; Bethany Mayer, Senior Vice President & General Manager Networking, HP
