The broadband battle between Internet Service Providers (ISPs), consumers & providers; the emerging mobile Internet and domain name dispute resolution will be amongst the issues tackled at the 6th iWeek conference and exhibition to be held from 5 to 7 September 2007 in Johannesburg.

The Internet Service Providers’ Association of SA (ISPA) and UniForum SA, the CO.ZA Domain Administrator, annual industry get together will see technologists, product leaders and decision makers descending on the Campus in Bryanston to debate issues while solutions providers showcase their wares at the exhibition.

“iWeek provides an opportunity for ISPs, industry players and network operators to meet and catch up on the latest developments affecting the industry,” said Ant Brooks, ISPA General Manager.

This years International speakers include CEO of Ignite Consulting & Ignite Technologies Njeri Rionge, co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer of the Cloud Niall Murphy, contributing scientist on CenterGate’s UltraDNS Bill Manning as well as Senior Legal Counsel for Nominet UK Nick Wenban-Smith. Access will be provided to speakers’ presentations, providing insight into local and international trends.

ISPs such as DataPro, Verizon, Internet Solutions, iBurst, MTN NS, Neotel and Storm Telecom will provide information including resale and other opportunities available to the industry.

Specific topics to be discussed at iWeek include Triple-play in the Townships, the Nominet DRS and ZA Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) process, as well as online phishing & e-Evidence.

As in previous years, the “Super Teacher of the Year” awards will also take place at iWeek. The awards recognise teachers that have participated in ISPA’s “Train the Teacher’s” project and successfully imparted their newly-acquired knowledge to their local communities.

Technology solutions providers have the opportunity to become sponsors of the conference thereby exposing themselves to a highly focused audience, maximising marketing spend. Exhibitors are offered reasonably-priced opportunities to exhibit and market their products using free-standing uniform stands which are self-sufficient and user friendly. The design and positioning of the stands promote delegate interaction and only one staff member is required at any one time.

iWeek 2007 is fortunate to have sponsors of the highest calibre and these include Gold sponsors DataPro & Verizon Business, Silver sponsors Storm Telecom & MTN Network Solutions and Bronze sponsor Crovanto.

Attendance at iWeek is free although delegates are required to register at prior to the conference. iWeek will also play host to the members-only ISPA Annual General Meeting (AGM) on the last day.
