Mier Conference: Integrated Access

MIERComm, based on Princeton-Hightstown Road, is holding

two weeks of workshops and testing sessions for vendors of integrated

access devices (IADs), now through September 8 at the National

Conference

Center at Exit 8A. These first-of-their-kind events bring together

industry leaders to perform interoperability and comparative

performance

analyses. For information, call 609-275-7311, extension 18.

"An integrated access device is one that brings together or

integrates

the most important forms of Internet traffic in use today, i.e. voice,

video, and data so that this may be transmitted along the same

connection

or channel, saving time, temper, and smoothing out the bumps in the

all-important bottom line," says Martin Milner, client

services

manager.

Representatives from Princeton University, the University of

Pittsburgh

and NJIT have been invited, and — though the event is

theoretically

not a public one — interested persons would not be turned away.

"MIERComms is keen to foster links with educational establishments

and to train the country’s young people in the technologies of

tomorrow,"

says Milner. Founded in 1988, MIERComms is an independent networking

consultancy and product-test center that pioneered the comparative

assessment of networking hardware and software.

After initial analysis, vendors may choose to have their device

thoroughly

examined, the results to be published in the Business Communications

Review (www.mier.com/publications). Workshops through Friday,

September

1, are for vendors who have an IAD with a TDM (time division

multiplexing)

focus. Those from Tuesday to Friday, September 5 to 8, are for those

who primarily use ATM (asynchronous transfer mode) as their access

mechanism.

Among the California-based visiting companies are Mariposa

Technologies,

Verilink, Vina Technologies, Mariner Networks, Coastam, and Sonoma

Systems, plus NexTone Communications of Maryland, Pennsylvania-based

Marconi, and Adtran from Alabama.
