Now things are a little different--but where will they be in ten or even fifteen years time?
This volume is based around four scenarios of the wireless world in 2015. The focus is on the industry (i.e. infrastructure and terminal vendors, operators, and service developers and providers) as well as on new players. The book has a broad scope describing societal trends as well as changes in user behaviour, technology and industry.
This text has been written by authors from Wireless@KTH, a research and educational centre formed by the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in cooperation with industry, and therefore offers an experienced and thorough approach to the subject. This is the first book to combine comprehensive scenarios on possible futures and the challenges facing industry today. The focus is upon the implications for industry related to the varying scenarios and statistics and figures to support claims. Through its global approach the intention is to suggest a different way of thinking when preparing for the future. Simple predictions and market analysis is not enough; making scenarios is a better way for actors to prepare for what the future might hold.
This will obviously appeal to professionals within the telecom/datacom/infocom industries, such as operators, vendors, service providers, middle and top management, business developers, strategists, analysts, technology managers and entrepreneurs. However it will also be essential reading for professionals within the financial industry, venture capitalists, analysts, consultancies--management consultants, education, analysts, journalists.
