Future of Telecommunication and Internet of Things

For businesses, telecommunication is the primary driver. At present, roughly 3.2 billion people are in some way or the other connected to the Internet.

People share information amongst themselves in one form or the other by using the Internet. And with every passing day, that number is rising at a rocketing pace.

However, in the days to come, we are not likely to be alone in cyberspace.

Passive and active devices that have some computing and processing capabilities are going to be our companions in cyberspace and compete for space along with telecommunication. They will be communicating as well as sharing information just like us, but with more vigor and more perfection. They will get connected with each other in a complex manner to form a more vivid global mesh. In the days to come, the number of connected devices is likely to increase by a remarkable degree, making the competition between man and machines more intense in cyberspace.

Since the Internet is basically a global library and an unlimited resource for knowledge, the formats in which the information can be available is likely to increase tremendously.

Challenges to Telecommunication

In addition to telecommunication, video and audio formats, along with text are likely to increase in numbers. The concept of open Internet is likely to make way to a system wherein large information companies will control the cyber world. This is going to be a huge changeover, wherein, certain companies are going to decide what will be available on the Net and what will not be visible or usable. Moreover, they may even decide what the common people are supposed to do on the Net. That means the freedom of information that is there in the cyber world will no longer prevail.

These companies are going to utilize Internet as a premise to promote content marketing of their products and services. Since most VoIP telecommunication for individuals is free, advertisements may become the norm. They will block unwanted content, or content that they think will either do no good to them or have negative publicity for them. This is going to be huge transformation in the world of Internet in the days to come. Many sub-spaces may come into existence. Imagine a sub-space world where only automobiles are discussed, or discussions and interactions are limited to a geographical or political compulsions.

Moreover, with more and more people getting access to the Internet all over the world, the activity will increase and newer forms of telecommunication and information exchange will come into existence. More devices will be incorporated, more data formats will be invented and, nearly unlimited ways of processing and presenting information will be the norm.

With the decline in landlines, telecommunication over the Net is gaining momentum. Newer sectors of our daily lives are going to be governed by Internet and related web based technology. Starting with daily household activities like managing the electrical appliances through mobiles devices to controlling electronic accessories, everything will be done via the Internet. This will automatically raise our dependency on the Internet.

Other Forms of Communication

People will start expressing their opinions via Internet. The use of blogs will increase and so will the use of the websites of various kinds. The value of content and of the companies that manage content will increase.

Education will become more Internet-based. This will enable education to every person on Earth through distant education.

Even medical science will become more Internet-based. It will become possible to diagnose and treat people from remote places, with the help of remote sensing. Even complex surgeries will be possible via Internet-based technology.

In a nutshell, it will be the Internet that will play the most pivotal role in determining the type of life we will lead in the future. With the advent of cut throat technology, that change is already in the offing and the coming days are only going to see more influence of Internet based technology in our day to day life and in other aspects of our lives.

Big Data & IP Mobile Networks

In this article we will be looking at IP Mobile Networks and Big Data.

Big data is a holistic term, which includes a wide variety of new methods and technologies. These are are designed to collect, manage and, analyse an incredibly large volume of data in real time.

Of late, this has been considered as a buzzword in the financial sector. The financial and stock market need to crunch large amounts of data for predictions and forecasts.

Another set of people who are affected by this term in real life is the network operators. From that point of view, it is the IP mobile network operators who can realize the potential of big data to the fullest. The zillions of bytes of data that are a part of the global communication traffic need to be channelled and managed in a proper way.

Big Data Opportunities in IP Mobile Networks

Let us discuss why big data is so important for in IP mobile networks. The simple answer to this question is that it promises growth and profitability in a number of ways:

  • Optimization of quality of service by superior analysis of network traffic
  • Preventing fraudulent behavior by effective analysis of all call data
  • Superior customized marketing campaigns for each and every customer, on the basis of location as well as behavior
  • Developing new services and products based on analysis of the customer behavior
  • Big data is useless unless and until there in an effective analytical tool for interpreting the data, for reducing the cost and, improving the level of customer satisfaction.

The Way The Big Data Is Used

The IP mobile operator has to use specially designed processes in order to capture a colossal amount of daily information. These records are subsequently processed for extracting the necessary metrics and analyzing them. In addition, data and their analysis have to be randomized in order to free them from private details of the subscribers.

The data thus collected is then subsequently used for the generation of a large number of matrices that are used to understand user behavior.

Privacy And The Security Of Customers

IP Mobile networks are extremely skilled and they have tremendous knowledge of the behavioral patterns of their customers. When the term, ‘behavioral pattern’ is used, it refers to the browsing and other habits, as well as the physical location of customers. They have access to the content of text messages sent and received as well as details of posts on the social network. When it comes to selling and managing this data for commercial use, optimal level of privacy and security have to be maintained. Rules are set by governments that prohibit the use or dissemination of private data. These rules are stricter in the medical field.

The Challenges of Big Data in IP Mobile Networks

There are a number of challenges in the way of handling this huge amount of data, more so when it comes to handling the quantity, diversity, and the complexity of the data in a seamless and meaningful fashion.

The Quantity: After the introduction of 4G IP mobile networks, there has been a huge surge in data that is generated by customers in social as well as by other medium like video and audio, etc.

The Diversity: Various gadgets equipped with cutting edge technology are generating huge amounts of traffic in a wide range of ‘never before experienced’ data formats. This means that each and every data format needs to be effectively and meticulously organized as well as structured for effective analysis.

The Complexity: The more the volume and data formats, the more complex is the process of handling big data. Effective channelling of the data for maintenance of integrity and quality become more complicated.

It is pretty clear that the big data is extremely influential for mobile IP network operators. Big data provides an opportunity for better understanding of the network and the nature of service that it provides to the subscribers.
