Face to face with the codes of the fu­ture

Daily Sabah (Turkey) - - Lifestyle -

INI­TIA­TIVES to cre­ate pack­age-car­ry­ing ro­bots, en­cryp­tion soft­ware that turns sounds into bar­codes, wear­able and trans­par­ent sen­sors and vir­tual net­works which will save the lives of op­er­a­tors are cod­ing their way into the fu­ture.

At the Mo­bile World Congress Amer­i­cas or­ga­nized in San Fran­cisco, the heart of ven­ture cap­i­tal and tech­no­log­i­cal en­ter­prises, telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion giants and tech­nol­ogy came face to face with en­trepreneurs, and the se­nior ex­ec­u­tives of Turkey’s telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions op­er­a­tors also at­tended the event.

Dur­ing the fair or­ga­nized from Sept. 14-16, the NETSIA en­ter­prise, es­tab­lished by Argela in the U.S., was also in the ex­hi­bi­tion area with the Open Net­work Foun­da­tion and in the 4YFN (Four Years from Now) startup business plat­form event. Some lead­ing in­no­va­tions dis­played at the fair in­clude 5G mo­bile in­fra­struc­ture so­lu­tions, ro­bot­ics tech­nolo­gies, ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence (AI), in­ter­net of things (IoT) and In­dus­try 4.0.

Ro­nan Dunne, a se­nior ex­ec­u­tive of Ver­i­zon, gave some strik­ing ex­am­ples of the im­pacts that 5G in­fra­struc­ture will have on the econ­omy, dur­ing a speech he de­liv­ered at the open­ing cer­e­mony.

“By 2035, 5G will gen­er­ate more than $12 tril­lion in global eco­nomic rev­enue, sup­port­ing 22 mil­lion jobs world­wide,” Dunne said, adding that sig­nif­i­cant areas of re­spon­si­bil­ity will emerge for the mo­bile in­dus­try.


Mo­bile and land­line telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions op­er­a­tors dif­fer from oth­ers in that they have to in­vest, un­remit­tingly. The costs of base sta­tions in the field and the fact that in­ter­net giants make up most of the in­ter­net traf­fic with­out in­vest­ing are dis­tress­ing the tele­com giants. Join­ing the Open Net­work Foun­da­tion with other global giants last month, Türk Telekom started to con­trib­ute to the fu­ture 5G plat­form with the NETSIA ini­tia­tive launched by Türk Telekom via Argela’s in­vest­ment in the U.S., tak­ing on a con­sid­er­able role in the or­ga­ni­za­tion that prom­ises a bright fu­ture for op­er­a­tors.

All the telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions giants feel com­pelled to co­op­er­ate since the pri­or­i­ties of the mo­bile net­work can be de­ter­mined and in­ter­fered in­stan­ta­neously while the hard­ware and ser­vice costs of base sta­tions are re­duced. If op­er­a­tors can­not ac­com­plish an in­fras­truc­tural trans­for­ma­tion, they will be over­whelmed by the traf­fic cre­ated by all in­ter­net giants such as Face­book and Google.
