Unless you are Rip Van Winkle or an honest to goodness luddite, you likely -- at this very moment -- have a PDA in one pocket and an mp3 player in the other. For many of you, they are one and the same! You've already embraced the wireless world and you know the incredible impact these technologies have had on the way you live, work and play.

Can you even imagine what the future holds?

The Wireless World: Untethered Opportunities is a half-day forum focused on the future of wireless communication, the growth and evolution of wireless technology and the impact that the wireless industry has on the state's/nation's economy. Through a series of discussions, this forum, offered by the New Jersey Technology Council and the New Jersey Institute of Technology, will explore how public policy decided today will impact the wireless market of the future.

"The wireless market is increasingly dynamic and growing in New Jersey," said J. Michael Schweder, president, AT&T New Jersey. "This forum will examine ways for the state's environment to remain attractive to both wireless consumers and businesses."

"We think this forum offers a prime opportunity to explore the fast-changing world of wireless communications," said Douglas Schoenberger, Verizon vice president, Public Affairs. "We're just on the brink of realizing the endless potential of unconfined communications and New Jersey has a significant opportunity to capitalize off of these constantly changing developments."

"Policy Unplugged" will be the first panel and will bring together policymakers, including tech champion Assemblyman Upendra Chivakula, who will discuss market realities including the policies that have and will continue to spur growth, innovation and evolution. Panelists will address policy, network and consumer impacts. Gov. Jon S. Corzine has been invited to attend.

For the second panel, "The Future of Wireless," company executives from AT&T, Verizon Wireless and Telcordia, will focus on the big picture benefits of wireless, its challenges, and the importance of an unregulated environment.

Jonathan Harwood, chief operating officer and vice president of Research and Development for Angel Medical Systems, will be speaking on a panel about Real Time Benefits -- companies currently using wireless technologies. Angel Medical is the creator of the AngelMed Guardian(R) system, an implanted device which is designed to detect, analyze and store the patient's electrograms. The IMD vibrates to warn the patient of alarms and alerts and was just granted FDA approval to start a major clinical trial in the U.S.

"The use of wireless technology can increase both device effectiveness and patient compliance," he said. "For example, information collected and stored in implantable devices can now be transmitted in real-time to external systems and physicians where immediate analysis can occur. This translates to quicker and better care for the patient."

Maxine Ballen, president and chief executive officer of the NJTC, said there is no better time than today to discuss wireless and its far-reaching impact on the region's economy.

"The real question is, what is needed to further grow the wireless industry and what advances will wireless broadband bring? This forum is going to be an exciting look into how wireless will continue to change our lives. Opportunities are endless, for certain."
