CHICAGO November 29, 2005 The International Engineering Consortium
(IEC) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)
announced their continued partnership to bring EntNet to the
first-ever Broadband World Forum Americas 2006, last night in a
signing ceremony during the 2005 IEEE Globecom conference in
St. Louis, Missouri.

Providing enterprise practitioners, business owners, researchers,
designers, developers, integrators, and technical leaders with
solutions to the latest in communications technology, the IEC and
IEEE's EntNet will focus on enterprise network requirements and
technology evolutions.

IEC Senior Director John Janowiak commented on the continued
relationship: The International Engineering Consortium has enjoyed
a long and productive relationship with the IEEE. Both organizations
strive to serve the industry's continuing education needs through
quality programs such as EntNet.

The educational program will reveal details on cutting-edge technology
important to enterprise, such as implementing IMS, wireless
communication, real-time enterprise challenges, enterprise Web
services, advanced VoIP technologies, quadruple play, interoperability
and integration of enterprise networks and services, and more.

The IEEE;s Dr. Shri Goyal, director of meetings and conferences,
added, "The unique IEEE ComSoc and IEC partnership facilitates
serving both the technical and practitioner community, utilizing the
technological innovations for business applications and pitching it to
business leaders. Our successful collaboration on the Enterprise
Networking and Services Conference, EntNet, is a testimonial to this
win-win strategy. We look forward to continued success!"

Through each of its sessions, EntNet will show businesses how to cut
operations costs, increase profit margin, gain in employee
productivity, and increase efficiency in information and
communications efforts.

For EntNet's sixth year in existence, previously at SUPERCOMM, the IEC
and the IEEE have once again teamed up to bring visionaries, vendors,
practitioners, and technology experts to one symposium. The continued
relationship allows EntNet to return for industry professionals at the
first-ever 2006 Broadband World Forum Americas, which will provide
networking opportunities and present services issues and solutions.
The business- and technology-oriented panels, workshops, and tutorials
fulfill the IEC and IEEE's commitment to education and progress in
technology and business.
