PANEL SESSION: Will WLAN Technology (802.11) Burst the 3G Bubble?
As the most touted technology advancement in recent times, the third-generation wireless network, or simply 3G, appears to be losing its luster. Even the big telecom companies, which pushed 3G as their salvation, are scaling back their development plans. Many of these carriers, in both the US and Europe, are even looking to roll out their own IEEE 802.11b wireless networks.

Is Wi-Fi a better technology? Not necessarily. Admittedly, Wi-Fi and 3G represent an apples-to-oranges comparison. But Wi-Fi is much cheaper than 3G and it's available today. In this way, the battle lines are being drawn. It is the classic tale of a current technology beating out the "cool," but over-the-horizon next-generation technology. Will this tide of 802.11 development and products be enough to change the shape of 3G? Come and listen to our panel of experts from both the Wi-Fi and 3G communities to find out!
