Agenda updated as of 13 February 2003



Fred Baker:


Fred Baker has worked in the telecommunications industry since 1978, building statistical multiplexors, terminal servers, bridges, and routers.  At Cisco Systems, his primary interest areas include the improvement of Quality of Service for best effort and real time traffic, the development of routing and addressing, and issues in law enforcement and emergency use of the Internet. In addition to product development, as a Cisco Fellow, he advises senior management of industry directions and appropriate corporate strategies.


In addition, he is the chair of the Internet Society’s Board of Trustees. His principal standards contributions have been to the IETF, for which he served as IETF Chair in from 1996 to 2001. In that forum, he has contributed to Network Management, OSPF and Manet Routing, PPP and Frame Relay, the Integrated and Differentiated Services QoS

architectures, and RSVP. He now serves on the IETF’s Internet Architecture Board, as well as directly contributing technically.


Tony Hain:


Tony is currently a Technical Leader with Cisco Systems focusing on IPv6. In addition to providing guidance to the various internal product teams, he has also been co-chair of the IETF working group on IPv6 Transition. His IETF participation since 1987 includes a term on the Internet Architecture Board from 1997 - 2001.


Prior to joining Cisco in 2001, he spent 5 years at Microsoft where his roles included Program Manager for IPv6, as well as Network Analyst for the CIO's office. Prior to Microsoft, he was the Associate Network Manager for the U.S. Department of Energy's Internet effort, ESnet. With this range of roles, spanning the space between the implementation technologists and senior management, he brings a real

world viewpoint to the deployment decision process.




Title: IPv6 over MPLS (45 minutes)

Speaker: Mr. James Wu


There are multiple techniques available to integrate IPv6 services over Service Providers core backbones: dedicated IPv6 network running over various data link layers, dual stack IPv4-IPv6 backbone, or leveraging of an existing MPLS backbone. Conditions are favorable for the introduction of native IPv6 service, from the edge, in a scalable way, without any IPv6 addressing restrictions and without putting a well-controlled IPv4 backbone in jeopardy. Backbone stability is key for Service Providers, which recently stabilized their IPv4 infrastructure. Service Providers running an MPLS/IPv4 infrastructure follow the same trends, as several integration scenarios are possible to offer IPv6 services on an MPLS network. Cisco Systems specially developed IPv6 Provider Edge Router over MPLS—(Cisco 6PE) to meet all of those requirements. This presentation would focus on the 6PE architecture, its operations and benefits, and updates on the related standards work in IETF.


Short Bios of Presenter:

James Wu, MS of Computer Science, National Tsing-Hua University, Taiwan
James Wu is a technical consultant of Asia Pac SP Operations at Cisco Systems. He is currently providing the technical consulting for major SP customers in Asia Pacific in the area of IP/MPLS core, VPN and IPv6 technology. He has consulted in some of the major IP backbone and MPLS networks deployment of the region key service providers in Taiwan and China. Prior to this, he had been an engineer of Chunghwa Telecom, the biggest SP in Taiwan, for 7 years, and senior networking instructor in IBM Taiwan for 2 years and the Product/Technical Manager of Cisco Taiwan for 2 years. Besides, he got CCIE for Routing and Switching in 2000.



Title: Integration of cellular infrastructure and IP technologies (2 hr 20 min)

Speakers: Mr. Mallik Tatipamula and Mr. Gopal Dommety


This session will discuss the technology trends, architectures and role of IP core, Ipv6, and wireless LAN technologies in the evolution of next generation mobile wireless network. It will discuss the adaptation and applications of IP from Ipv4 to Ipv6 in the evolution of the GPRS to mobile IP and 3G. The speakers will highlight why Ipv6 is important and applicable in the mobile wireless networks, and how it can be implemented. They will also discuss the trends of wireless LANs such as IEEE 802.11 based networks, Wireless Metropolitan Area Networks such as IEEE 802.16 Networks and Wide Area Wireless Networks such as GPRS, UMTS, CDMA (1xRTT, EVDO, EVDV) will co-exist to provide unified services and possibly a unified network view to the consumer. The speakers will present a unified architecture and a vision of "The road to 4G with wireless LAN and mobility". Last, the speakers will provide an update on the standards activities of IPv6 and 3G mobile wireless specifications.


Topics covered in this session are:

Ø      IP technologies in the evolution toward 3G - Mallik Tatipamula (30 minutes)

Ø      IPv6 in mobile wireless networks - Mallik Tatipamula (30 minutes)

Ø      Wireless LAN and mobility: Road to 4G - Gopal Dommety (60 minutes)

Ø      Update on Standards – Gopal and Mallik (20 minutes)
