The Architectures of the Internet & Telephone Networks — A Primer on How They’re Different

Please join High Tech Forum and a panel of esteemed technical experts on Tuesday, August 15th at 11:00 AM EDT for a detailed discussion on how the internet’s underlying architecture is fundamentally different from that of the copper-based telephone network and the perils of treating the two as if they were the same. Appreciating the difference between the functions and architecture of the two different networks is critical to ensuring that policymakers and regulators contemplating a regulatory framework for the internet make sound policy decisions based on how the internet actually works.

Speakers include:

  • John Day, Computer Scientist; Internet Pioneer; Historian

  • Richard Bennett, Founder, High Tech Forum and Visiting Fellow in the American Enterprise Institute Center for Internet, Communications, and Technology Policy

  • Tom Evslin, Co-Founder and Former Chairman and CEO, ITXC Corp.

  • Barry Shein, President and CEO of Software, Tool and Die, Inc.
