The Killer App
Here, there's hardly any discussion of what's driving bandwidth. The obsession is all around how old networks deal with the surging popularity of applications that go far beyond what those networks were designed to do.
In case you need "the killer app" defined concisely, Infinera's global director of technical marketing, Dr. Vijay Vusirikala, who's speaking now, has given the best description I've heard in a while: "The killer app is video plus social networking. And once you add HD to that you have a super killer app."
There ya go.
