Theme: Big Data is transforming the way we live, work and think.

Since Aristotle, we have fought to understand the causes behind everything. But this ideology is fading. In the age of big data, we can crunch an incomprehensible amount of information, providing us with invaluable insights about the what rather than the why.

It used to be that the television was the centre piece of your living room. An influx of smaller screens in the home, though, has meant that the TV has had to fight a lot harder in recent years for your attention.

Theme: Bridging the Digital Divide in Asia-Pacific

For everyone to benefit from ICT, affordable access is key. While mobile communications is greatly enabling socio-economic development, affordability and accessibility of ICT remain a serious barrier to sufficient progress in many parts of the world. The UN International Telecommunications Union (ITU) estimates that broadband is unaffordable to nearly three billion people globally. With coordinated policy efforts, this can be addressed.

Theme: Network Function Virtualization (NFV) opens a Pandora box

Consensus of Standards is always harder to achieve in carrier-world than it is in corporate-world, but the take-up is, paradoxically, faster. This is due to the imperative need of carriers to interconnect globally, while enterprises imperative needs are to manage their own space, at their own time line. So, how does this compare with NFV standards compared with SDN?

Theme: Picture the World with Smarter, Brighter, Superfast Broadband

Huge increase of mobile Internet in APAC means huge growth of infrastructure, necessitating earlier implementations of latest broadband technologies. How can this be achieved at lowest cost?
Asia is forging ahead of the rest of the world in wideband, with clear results of economic improvements - will this impact the East-West socio-economic balance that is already transforming?
How would greater network speed and smarter SDF (software Defined Fabric) change our lives?
What is the effect of trusting our entire cyber-life to the Cloud - can SDN powered Big Pipe and Big Data cope? What can SDF do for optical networks?
Is network resilience keeping up with speed and complexity of new networks?

Theme: Security - lighting up a dark landscape

Security is a constant concern. Home users, businesses, governments, software and hardware providers - every user of ICT and every ICT supplier has security concerns. Has your mobile been hacked? Are you concerned about your safety in the cloud, or using virtual platforms (SaaS, XaaS)? Does possible loss of corporate date keep you up at night? We are all at risk every time we use digital technology and any time we have information to keep safe.

Theme: The addressing problem and the IPv6 cure

We all acknowledge that the Internet is essential for business and personal everyday life. The numbers of new subscribers in Asia are set to explode, gobbling up the few remaining IPv4 addresses. The ‘cure’ is IPv6. Awareness of the need for IPv6 migration is growing but the take-up is still very slow. The trouble is that transforming IP networks to IPv6 is a daunting task, where everyone must chip in, but the benefits cannot be measured directly.  In this edition, the concerned voices of the industry (IETF, Regional Internet Registrars and leading ISPs) are urging content and service providers, as well as enterprises, to take the plunge, instead of looking for alternative solutions that delay full implementations.

Theme: The evolution of Charging and Billing

The transformation of Telecom forces a similar evolution of the billing systems. Some systems cannot evolve to cope with entirely new business models and different methods of charging. The existing flat rate for Data Services is considered destructive and must be replaced by charging for user-perceived value, using far-reaching charging rules. Mechanisms for micropayment are no longer a myth – just look at what the Apple App Store has achieved! The success of Mobile Money in certain regions means that at long last, the financial side of Telecom is progressing. Paperless bills and real-time charging are now overtaking that traditional billing system, while user credit and financial transactions remain in sharp focus.

Theme: Head in the cloud, head for business

Cloud is set to deliver services to the enterprise as well as the consumer segment. Telecom players compete for this business with web giants like Google. Carriers are hoping to leverage their trust relationship and enhanced networks to make headway in storing data and hosting applications. However, there is much to resolve in terms of compatibility, between clouds vendors and between private and public clouds. There is more to do for fast logical retrieval (e.g. tagging), efficient delivery (e.g. mono/multi casting and cascading) and high performance (e.g. buffering, cashing and data compression). No use having ‘head in the clouds’, better have ‘head for business’ when reaching the clouds.

Theme: Message to the World – the voyage from SMS to Twitter

Messaging has changed the way the masses communicate. In fact, it added another way for us to communicate, one that youth often prefer. It is laconic, silent, not intrusive and will be right there when you are ready. Messaging has grown to encompass both worlds of Data and Voice. Platforms that can manage both IP based web applications as well as Telco Voicemail applications are deployed by both ISPs and telcos. Many websites use SMS for communicating with users and between users, bringing the web closer to being interactive and real-time with quick ‘sound-bites’. Now Twitter has re-invented messaging, adding circles of social networking around the basic concept of ‘text-bites’, and YouTube’s popularity shows that ‘Video-bite’ is enormous role to play. Messaging business continues to grow. Where else will Messaging go from here?

Theme: Mobile phones vs PCs - we are all winning

While smart phones deliver PC functions, PCs are used as communication tools, wired or wireless. The latest advent of slim-line tablets blurs further the traditional roles of devices. This gives rise to a new range of ‘Mobility Services’. Such services range from shop-floor information flow that speeds up manufacturing, machine-to-machine (M2M) automation, mobile money and mobile eCommerce, which are slated to bring future growth.

Theme: When things generate more data than we do

Machine-to-machine communications, is a market-changing force - it’s not that big yet, but the change is coming soon. M2M, is the automatic sharing of data between machines, between sensors and devices of all types. Although sometimes called the Internet of Things, and the Internet Protocol is often used, the Internet itself is often bypassed in favour of connections via, say, GSM devices or via satellite for remote field operations. Most M2M interactions take place without human intervention continuously, at programmed intervals or when a sensor of some sort detects an ‘event’ or reaches a pre-programmed threshold.

Theme: The video renovation

Video is the fastest growing traffic category on the net, by the end of 2010 it will have surpassed peer-to-peer traffic as the growth volume leader. By 2014, according to one unusually accurate source video will account for more than 90 per cent of consumer Internet traffic. Managing an increase of this magnitude will tax the ingenuity, financial structure, human resources and physical infrastructure of communications service providers and vendors at every level of the value chain. Worse, competition is pushing down prices and ARPUs are falling – just when networks must be expanded to handle the growing traffic.

Theme: Wireless - it’s in the air and on the move

The comparative ease of building wireless, and the affordability of infrastructure, are speeding the roll-out of wireless almost everywhere. There are problems, certainly - maintenance and accessibility, clean power supplies for base stations and users alike, among others, but it is increasingly the ‘way-to-go’. The convenience of mobile telephony is slowly eating away at the fixed-voice market and creating its own unique blend of services and opportunities for Service Providers and Network Operators.

Theme: The cost of connectivity

Technology has its costs - and they are not all easily measurable. A new technology might do more, and do it more cheaply, but the cost of capital, of transition and the social costs might well break fragile businesses, disrupt the business models of large and small companies alike and burden society by widening the social and economic gap between those that can access the new technologies and those that cannot. The growth of ICT has also, for example, increased power usage to the point that energy costs can, over time, dominate the total cost of ownership. This alarmingly high-energy usage contributes to global warming and makes the use of power saving - green - technologies increasingly important. This issue will take a hard look at the real, often hidden, costs of connectivity - including social, economic, political, educational and other ‘soft’ costs of connectivity - and their inevitability or avoidability.

Companies are increasingly recognising their social obligation to reduce their environmental impact. Environmental responsibility, once considered a burden, often proves to have a variety of unforeseen benefits - often measureable on the bottom line. Meeting social obligations often requires improving operational efficiency, developing new processes and products and results in the discovery of ways to cut costs - especially those for energy. The drive to be green is also creating unsuspected new markets and services.  The theme for this issue of Connect-World will be Networks and world greening.

Theme: Shrinking equipment, a shrinking world

The advance of information and communication technology is largely due to doing more with less, to shrinking the unshrinkable just a little bit more. Shrinking brings lower prices, greater reliability, lower power usage and more functionality in less space. More importantly, the shrinking process is putting the world in the pockets of more and more people each day. Not everyone can afford a PC or a laptop. Many people have limited access to reliable sources of power and fewer have access to the Internet.

Also parts of the new Web are the evolutionary moves towards the semantic/ intelligent web, IPv6, the growth in enterprise services that are not a mere extension of existing services and financial services such as mobile cash and credit. The Web is also revolutionising education, healthcare, government and social services in general. The impact of this upon the world’s ICT infrastructure is hard to calculate, but you see and feel the effects wherever you are in the region - or the world.

Access was once synonymous with copper. Wireless access now outpaces wired and mobile phones outnumber fixed. Fibre brings TV, broadband and inexpensive voice, and even power lines are used by utilities, offices, factory floors and homes for broadband access. Much of the change, the revolution in telecom is the result of better access technologies. Technologies already in the pipeline, and others on the way, promise to change the way we communicate, work and play to an even greater degree than anything we have seen.
