Everything You Always Wanted To Know About ISDN...

09/10/96 RMIUG Meeting - Everything You Always Wanted To Know About ISDN...But Were Afraid To Ask

ISP's interested in presenting at the Nov 12th ISP-Fest pls see below

The Tuesday, September 10 meeting of the Rocky Mountain Internet Users Group (RMIUG) will feature a panel discussion on a new type of high-speed digital Internet access, called ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network). The presentation is called "Everything You Always Wanted To Know About ISDN...But Were Afraid To Ask." Our first speaker is Alicia Chalmers (achalme@uswest.com) who is ISDN Product Manager with !nterprise (US West). She will give an overview of the technology and explain how it works.

Secondly, Darryl Watson, President, and Stephen B. Patterson (spat@abwam.com), Marketing Manager with ABWAM Internet Access, will discuss the Internet Service Provider's perspective.

Finally, Michael Rabb (mrabb@indra.com), an RMIUG member who is participating in an ISDN consumer trial, will explain the user's viewpoint. The RMIUG Committee extends special thanks to Mr. Rabb for his assistance in organizing this meeting.

The meeting is Tuesday, September 10, from 7:00 - 9:00 pm (with optional 6:30 pm start for informal networking and refreshments). The meeting will be held at the Department of Commerce (NIST) Building at 325 Broadway in Boulder, one traffic light South of Baseline. This facility holds 510 people. Park in the Dept. of Commerce lot, go in the main door (faces East), and find the main auditorium just to the right of the main entrance. The meeting is free and open to the public, but we will be passing the hat to defray the room rental charge we incur.

RMIUG appreciates the ongoing support from XOR Network Engineering for administration of RMIUG's electronic discussion lists & WWW site and Internet One of Boulder for sponsoring refreshments.

Consultants and companies are invited to bring Internet-related product information, brochures, and business cards which will be displayed on an information table.

There is an email mailing list set up for this group. General information can be obtained by sending an Email to rmiug@rmiug.org which will generate an auto-reply message that tells you about the lists and how to subscribe. You can also reach the RMIUG "Executive" Committee at rmiug-comm@rmiug.org. Our WWW site is at http://www.rmiug.org/

Upcoming RMIUG Meetings:
Oct 15 - (note 3rd Tuesday!) Eagle River Interactive presentation on Internet Industry Trends and Interactive Solutions

Other upcoming topics:

(To suggest a topic, send your idea to rmiug-comm@rmiug.org)

ISP's: RMIUG will hold another "ISP-fest" on Tuesday, November 12th. We plan to have a similar meeting as last year - pls see: http://www.rmiug.org/rmiug/minutes/95_09_12.html

The biggest challenge we face for this meeting is lining up the panel members ... especially with the explosion of ISP's; you can fully appreciate that it would be impossible to have every ISP in Colorado presenting ... and there are other commercial venues for this.

We don't advertise or envision this meeting as one where all ISP's are there ... but rather an opportunity for RMIUG members to get a taste of what is out there.

So ... if you are interested in attending, pls Email "alek@rmiug.org" We hope to settle on our panel by our September 10th meeting. Although not required, it would be nice if each ISP would contribute $50 to defray costs of the room rental and copy costs (we will have handouts with "Tom's ISP List" attached).

As always, we appreciate suggestions/comments for this meeting.
