: IP mobility is big"> Equally optimistic about the wireless future is Ciscos Chambers, who says its not about "wireless" anymore, but "IP mobility." "IP mobility is the next big opportunity," he said. "I still think we are being too conservative about the IP mobility opportunity."
Echoing Powells talk, Chambers said, "Lets not regulate, lets get them off and running."
At stake is more than just the health of Cisco or of the wireless industry, but rather the economic well-being of the country, he said. Future growth of the gross domestic product will depend on productivity growth. Productivity growth will not keep increasing without improved wired and wireless integration, processes, and applications, and the mobile IP network is at the heart of that. "The IP network is at the core of process change and applications," he said. Between the Powell and Chambers talks, Sun Microsystems Inc. CEO Scott McNealy entertained the crowd with a game of IT "Jeopardy."
