Session 6B

Local Access of Services: Problems and Solutions in the Last Mile
Chair: M. Ufuk Çaglayan, Bogaziçi University, Turkey

As both local and global networking technologies evolve, problems of accessing new network services at the user end remain an important issue. Especially in campus settings, where the service demands of users are diverse, finding proper solutions to problems of security, service quality and availability, scalability and the vast spectrum of high performance end-user equipment creates serious challenges for network service providers. This session will try to answer some of the questions encountered by both end users and network service providers.
