An integrated view on future information and communication networks and services.
Prof. Daniel Kofman,
Telecom ParisTech (ENST), France –
The talk first presents a vision on future information and communication services and related requirements and challenges. It then shows a – unified – view on major trends enabling the presented services’ evolution, including better integrated cloud and networking solutions, future content distribution systems, Internet of Things, Big Data, as well more futuristic concepts like nano-devices and nano-networks. Finally, to illustrate possible applications, a focus is given on the impact of evolved ICT solutions in future “energy services” and on the required evolution of the control plane of smart grids. 21
