I attended the W3C Workshop on
evolutions of network and Web technologies last week, at the GSMA
offices in the City of London, to give a talk about the emerging IETF
Transport Services framework.
The goal of the workshop was to bring together mobile network operators
and vendors; network protocol researchers and standards developers; and
web developers, browser vendors, and CDN operators, to discuss the
interplay between the upcoming 5G standards, deployments, and business
models, advances in network protocols, and developments in web standards.
I was asked to speak about developments in transport protocols and APIs
in the IETF
while others discussed 5G standards and use cases, alternative network
protocols, browser APIs, the immersive web and advances in networking
for media, edge compute for 5G, and the role of machine learning in
optimizing web applications and networks.
