The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) will dedicate a major section of the show floor at next month's Globalcomm 2006 event to promoting the benefits of interoperability.

The TIA says the show floor's "Interoperability in Action" exhibit will highlight the efforts of industry organizations that are attempting to "standardize their wares," including Ethernet, coax cabling, switching, and multimedia products.

Specific organizations featured as part of the exhibit include the Metro Ethernet Forum, Multiservice Forum, IMS Forum, Multimedia over Coax Alliance, UNH-IOL, WiMAX Forum, and TeleManagement Forum.

According to the TIA, the exhibit will feature big corporations and small businesses from across the industry, demonstrating the benefits of collaborating to create a dynamic, interoperable infrastructure that will allow the industry as a whole to push new technologies to market more quickly, with lower capital expenditures for carriers and enterprises.

"Interoperability in Action demonstrates that industry understands the needs of carriers, enterprises, and ultimately consumers," contends the TIA's president, Matt Flanigan. "By working together, new technologies can be brought to market quicker, and with lower costs, benefiting everyone and increasing the use of new dynamic technologies. Attendees that visit Interoperability in Action will get a live sneak peak of some the most exciting communications technology available."

Globalcomm will be held June 4-8, 2006, at Chicago's McCormick Place, with exhibits open from Monday, June 5 through Wednesday, June 7. Globalcomm replaces Supercomm as the TIA's annual industry event.
