Wireless Foresight: Scenarios of the Mobile World in 2015
2003 (English)Book (Other academic)
We are entering exciting times. After the decade when the Internet and the cell-phone changed our lives and working habits, these two technologies are about to merge. At the same time, the industry is going through one of its worst crises ever. At this crossroads, the future can take any direction. Up or down. Success or failure. This is the website of the final report from the scenario project Wireless Foresight. The report deals with the state of the wireless industry in 2015 and presents four scenarios of the future: »Wireless Explosion Creative Destruction«, »Slow Motion«, »Rediscovering Harmony«, and »Big Moguls and Snoopy Governments«. From the scenarios, important areas for technological research are identified. A number of critical challenges facing industry are identified: the high cost for infrastructure, the slow spectrum release, the stampeding system complexity, radiation, battery capacity, and the threat of a disruptive market change facing the telco industry. The project has been initiated by Wireless@KTH, a research and educational center formed by the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in cooperation with industry.
