                              Wednesday, 07 October 2009, 09:00 - 12:30,

Worldwide, many leading mobile operators are planning for the trial and launch of next generation mobile
networks in 2010. The launch promises to provide a step-change in user experience as well as network
performance. In the "Open Expert Forum" of the joint ITU/NGMN Session "Mobile Broadband 2010+",
international thought-leaders and innovators will present the current status and provide an outlook on
selected critical areas for successful next generation mobile network deployment. Experts will offer detailed
insights through presentations and panels, for example in the areas of mobile applications, all-IP networks,
backhaul challenges and radio access innovations. The session will be an open forum that allows the
audience to raise questions and to be actively involved in all the discussions.
KEY QUESTIONS: - What are the current barriers in the area of mobile broadband application
development and how can they be addressed? - How will next generation mobile backhaul networks cope
with the rising traffic, the increased reliability requirements and the needs for differentiated quality of
service treatment? - What further developments are expected in the area of radio access and how will
transition strategies look? - What are the greatest challenges in the migration towards access-agnostic, all-IP
core networks? What is the impact on the service landscape?
