Network Research, Empowered Users, and Sound Policy
Wednesday, January 28, 2008
3:00 - 4:00 p.m.
New America Foundation
1630 Connecticut Ave NW, 7th Floor
Washington, DC 20009
As the Internet has evolved -- moving from a relatively small set of networks used by researchers to a worldwide platform used by over a billion people -- its performance has become harder to analyze and understand. Researchers lack access to critical data about the current state of broadband networks, and users can find it difficult or impossible to understand the performance and characteristics of their Internet connections.
Transparency has always been an essential component of the Internet's success, and, to remedy today's information gap, researchers need resources to develop new analytical tools. At this event, speakers will discuss the importance of advancing research in network measurement tools and introduce new developments that will benefit end-users, innovators, and policymakers.
