Where public and private networks intersect

As the nexus of public/private sector infrastructure, ComNet Summit provides an opportunity to join the latest communications products with the hungry market for astute solutions. Conferences today do not address the unique and compelling needs of the Washington business and government communities. ComNet, with its legacy as the thought leader since 1979 on issues surrounding telecom, networking, and service applications, is the ideal setting to present the newest products, services, partnerships and people.

Attendees will include in-the-know technology managers seeking the fastest and most secure answers to their evolving network needs. In the public sector, technology needs evolve around special programs and long term and growing missions. In academia it’s about policy, regulatory and compliance issues. In the private sector, it’s about the bottom line, flexibility and high availability of infrastructure.

The ComNet Summit conference program, includes sessions on wireless, security, storage planning, VoIP, utility computing and a look at some new technologies. This program is being designed to present the IT managers and executives with a complete overview of the issues facing them in business or at a government agency today. The cross-section of sessions will prepare any manager for their FY2006 planning, and inform them of trends and directions that impact their business or agency. We have brought together an excellent conference advisory team, and together have been creating this program. Pre-conference tutorials begin Monday, November 28 and continue with two information-packed days, Tuesday and Wednesday, with an opening Keynote (Tuesday Morning) by Michael Gallagher, Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Communications and Information, U.S. Department of Commerce and Administrator of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration.

ComNet Summit’s highly regarded Town Meeting returns on Tuesday, November 29 under the direction of former FCC Chairman Richard “Dick” Wiley. Dick and his team of government and regulatory officials will look at the subject “Do we need a new Telecommunications Act?”

Under the direction of Network World President/Editorial Director John Gallant the Showdown debate will look at Managed Security Service Providers. Structured like a presidential debate the panel of four vendor executives will take turn asking and answering questions on this growing trend.

Efficiency and results

Companies need direct access to buyers, and face-to-face programs really make this possible. You want to meet buyers and potential customers, make connections with reporters and analysts and do so in a timely and cost-efficient way. Preference today is being given to shorter events, local buyer audiences, and targeted opportunities — and that’s what we’ve packaged to help make your investment produce measurable results.

This November 28-30 ComNet Summit returns to Washington, DC bringing the efficiencies of trade show marketing and face-to-face opportunities together with a strong and highly targeted conference program. Unlike large expositions, ComNet Summit is tightly focused on enterprises and government agencies seeking networking, VoIP, security and outsourcing products and services. Sponsors have an opportunity to present in size-limited exhibit spaces open only during select hours, making the entire experience very productive and easier to manage.
