Tomorrow’s Wireless World featuring Craig Barrett

Tomorrow’s Wireless World featuring Craig Barrett

I am delighted to announce my participation in an upcoming event being organized in San Jose on 18th Nov. A high-level Finnish delegation of executives from the wireless industry is coming to US and I will be moderating a panel discussion on “Tomorrow’s Wireless World.” We will be going beyond the current deployments and trends and into something much beyond. The highlight of the event is of course to share the stage with the eminent Dr. Craig Barrett, Intel Chairman of the Board. Am deeply honored.

I gave a keynote address to the Finnish delegation 3-4 years ago and it was great fun, so, am really looking forward to this one.

There is limited seating and they are filling out fast, so, if you are interested, please register.
