Mobile Computing Policy and Network Access Control
Hosted by NetMotion Wireless
September 20, 2006
Chair: Peter Rysavy, Rysavy Research
This PCCA meeting will address how mobile systems function under different operating circumstances, such as what networks are available. For example, high bandwidth operations may be restricted to higher-speed networks, or priority may be given to latency-sensitive applications. Mobile computing policy enables control over which applications are granted network access under what conditions, as well as over which network to use. Related to this topic are items such as end-point control, where connectivity may be denied unless appropriate software, e.g., virus protection, is installed and up to date. Operator policies are also an emerging factor.
As mobile computing systems, including handhelds, become ever more powerful, and connect using an ever greater number of networks, it is essential that they be managed and controlled appropriately, to minimize management and operating costs, to optimize the user experience, and to protect enterprises. The purpose of this meeting is to explore the policy issues that companies face in deploying mobile computing systems, the solutions available today, efforts by key industry players, the relevant and emerging standards and future directions.
The PCCA is inviting companies to present on this topic or on closely related areas. We are also open to feedback on what specific items to examine in this meeting.
