Deutsche Telekom CTO Friedrich Fuss Headlines IEC's Broadband World Forum Europe 2007 Next Week in Berlin.

Key industry players gather next week at the IEC's Broadband World Forum Europe 2007 to discuss winning solutions in the information and communications technology (ICT) field

CHICAGO -- The International Engineering Consortium (IEC) presents Broadband World Forum Europe 2007 Chair Friedrich Fuss who will captain more than 260 World Forum speakers next week in Berlin. The BBWF Europe 2007 takes place at the Estrel Convention Center this 8-11 October with Deutsche Telekom AG (DT) as the official host sponsor.

"The challenges facing all of us in the telecommunications industry are enormous -- and the opportunities are enormous as well. The BBWF Europe 2007 will bring us all together, for a few days, for some intensive discussion," commented World Forum Chair Fuss. "This four-day conference will give us an opportunity to share our experience and to learn from each other about the most promising strategies. And the accompanying exhibition will be sure to offer some tantalizing views of the future of our exciting industry."

IEC President John Janowiak continued, "Mr. Fuss leads a stellar lineup of champions in the industry at the BBWF Europe next week...we're confident that attendees will learn of countless winning strategies from him and the many experts we will present both in the conference and exhibition."

Fuss concluded, "Broadband lines are playing an increasingly important role...networks will converge as providers work to make broadband access more versatile and customizable...NGN, or next-generation networks, will soon supplant today's legacy networks...the VDSL network that Deutsche Telekom is rolling out will be an important NGN component [and our] group is planning to invest up to three billion euros in it."

Other Broadband World Forum Europe 2007 keynoters who take the stage next week include Simon Beresford-Wylie, CEO of Nokia Siemens Networks; Sushel Bijganath, managing director of RTL Online; Bridget Cosgrave, executive vice president of the enterprise business unit at Belgacom; Michel Rahier, president of the wireline business group of Alcatel-Lucent; and Berit Svendsen, VP and head of the Nordic Fixed division at Telenor.
