Face to face with the codes of the future
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.
OPERATORS WILL NOT GIVE IN
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.
