In April 2024, Robert Broberg, a Visiting Scholar at the University of Pennsylvania, whose extensive 38-year career in the industry has left a significant mark on the development of the internet across all layers of the TCP/IP model, will speak at the IQT The Hague Conference. Broberg’s tenure at Cisco, where he spearheaded the development and deployment of the first internet optical transport links integrated into the existing telecommunications infrastructure, stands out as a testament to his pioneering contributions to the field of internet technology.

Broberg’s work at the University of Pennsylvania has been instrumental in bridging the gap between academic research and industrial application, leading to innovations that have underpinned the growth of multi-billion-dollar businesses. His portfolio of numerous patents and a wealth of published papers reflects a career dedicated to advancing technology and pushing the boundaries of what is possible in Internet communications.

In addition to his technical contributions, Broberg has led three academic-industrial research programs at the University of Pennsylvania, fostering collaboration between the academic and industrial sectors to drive forward innovations that have profoundly impacted the internet as we know it today. His leadership in these initiatives highlights his commitment to nurturing the next generation of technologies and the ecosystems that support their development.

At the IQT The Hague conference, Broberg is expected to share insights from his vast experience in developing internet technologies, particularly focusing on integrating optical transport links into telecommunications infrastructure. His presentation will likely delve into the challenges and opportunities that emerged during the early days of the internet’s expansion, the importance of academic-industrial collaborations in fostering technological breakthroughs (such as those at the University of Pennsylvania), and the potential future directions for internet technology in the quantum era.

IQT The Hague 2024 is the Netherlands’ fifth global conference and exhibition. The Hague is a Quantum Technology Event focusing on Quantum Networking and Quantum Security. Ten vertical topics encompassing more than 40 panel talks from over 100 speakers will provide attendees with a deep understanding of state-of-the-art developments of the future quantum internet and the current impact of quantum-safe technologies on cybersecurity and quantum computers.

The conference brings together corporate management, entrepreneurs, end users, technology providers, infrastructure partners, researchers, and investors working on current developments. IQT The Hague is organized by 3DR Holdings, IQT Research, QuTech, QIA (Quantum Internet Alliance), and Quantum Delta NL, who will bring leading organizations and professionals together in this important event. The April conference is “in-person” to ensure maximum networking and discussion at the Postillion Hotel & Convention Centre in The Hague.
