Session Description:

RFID and Ubiquitous Environment

RFID technology is a key component of an Ubiquitous environment. In the near future, every real object will be identified by RFID, and this information will be managed on the Internet.

In this session, panelists who are members of Auto ID Labs and specialists on RFID/Ubiquitous technologies, will discuss RFID technology, ubiquitous environment with real issues on global operations and deployment. For example, RF of the RFID means radio frequency. The assignment of RF band depends on each country. In this session, panelists explain the RF environment and how to operate the RFID tag in the different countries.

From the Internet view, we should consider how to manage the information that is identified by RFID. EPC network is one architecture for managing the information of the real object. Panelists will explain the EPC network as one example of an ubiquitous environment.

Internet 2005: Roles in the Asia Pacific Region

The Internet technology has started to face some of the new key markets and their requirements. Ubiquitous computing environment where the electronic appliances, sensors and RFIDs are distributed around our working and living space and accessible from the Internet. Streams of video and audio are has open very practical markets of VoIP, video conferencing and some new TV-like broadcast media. The interactive nature of some of the applications and others such as network game environment strictly requesting very short RTT on the end-to-end communication.

Responsibilities on scalability, latency and stability are some of the very serious requirements from such market to the new Internet. When we see the reality of those new requirements happening in the Asia Pacific countries, I believe the solutions only could be achieved by cooperation of all the experts in the world working in the region. This presentation is to share such views and plans.

Each economy has its own R&D strategy, and there has been some effort to establish a global Internet R&D collaboration. Since the Internet is truely a global system, we must have coordinated R&D activities, to achieve effective R&D activity in a global sense.

In this session, we will discuss the strategy of Internet R&D, aiming to the next or future agenda for the current and future global Internet.

What is the Economic Effect of Broadband in Japan ? (30 min.)

The commercialization of the Internet began at the end of the 20th century. This coincided with the "lost decade" in Japan, a lengthy period of economic stagnation. Following this period, Japan's Government has moved to a policy of structural reform, however has this really been effective? The answer to that question may not be known for some time however recently the Cabinet created a task force to review and report on the economic effects of the national IT policy. The majority of the task force was comprised of economic researchers however as the lone task force representative of the Internet industry in Japan, Dr. Fujiwara will talk in this session on the Economic Effects of IT Policies on Broadband Penetration in Japan. In particular, the talk will look at the successes and issues of IT-based society infrastructure development, IT applications, and IT economic impact, offering suggestions for answering outstanding questions.

Session Coordinator:

Professor Yoichi Shinoda
Center for Information Science

Session Description:

To Control and Revive P2P
Within the continuing expansion of the Internet's application area, central server-based services such as the WWW have begun to be expanded on with the use of resources on the "edge" of the network (The Internet Dark Matter) providing high expectations for a communication architecture (P2P) .
However, the negative impact of the unbounded spread of illegal file sharing applications has many calling for effective measures for control of this.
This Key Track session will examine P2P from two opposing standpoints

  • control and revival - and provide a vision of a future P2P model.
  • The Future of Practical P2P Technology and Barriers to Growth - A Practical Perspective
  • P2P Traffic Control Technology
    P2P file sharing has not only gotten a lot more prevalent, but a lot more nefarious. And new types of real-time applications are adopting the P2P model, such as Skype for person-to-person voice over the Internet. Innovative new solutions to best handling P2P are required.
  • Technology for Controlling P2P Users - the Future of P2P

Session Description:

[Hot & Cool Internet Products in 2005]

The size of the Internet continues to grow in particular in Asian countries. The architecture and key component equipment on the Internet is facing wide variety of technical challenges, such as broadband, ubiquitous and realtime communications. In order to manage a huge number of internet nodes, we are now exploring the deployment of IPv6 technology. It is a serious challenge, especially in Asia.

We are also investigating optical networking, so called lambda networking on a global scale - an example of which is the GLIF (Global Lambda Integrated Facility) project.

As for access networking, integration of various wireless technologies (IEEE802 wireless LAN or 3G/4G) and wired technologies (xDSL or FTTH) is a critical point for effective and competitive deployment of ISP's networks.

In this session, we discuss what is the new agenda for the existing Internet, and discuss hot and new requirements for network equipment and their development status.

Session Description:

Historically, the Internet has carried only non-realtime text based information among digital computers. Though, via the enpowering of processing capabilities at the node and the increase of available bandwidth, Internet has started the accomodation of non-text data and realtime communications. In particular, the deployment of so-called broadband Internet environments has delivered us the availability of "practical" multimedia communication, using interactive voice and video communications. Already, a large number of subscribers are enjoying VoIP service (or IP Telephony service) and digital broadcasting service over an IP platform.

In this session, we want to discuss the current status and technical issue(s) of IP Telephony service in each Asian country, and want to discuss the next service and technical agenda beyond the IP telephony services.
