We invite contributory papers on the following topics from young students and professionals for being considered for presentation in the seminar. The papers may be of Scientific, technical, research, review, case studies and status paper in nature. Full papers should be limited to 4 pages in 11 point double column, spacing 1,5 lines. The title should be center justified and bold in 14 points and the author(s’) name(s) should follow in next line in 12 points italics. The last date for submission should remain as 25th August. The paper should be sent to one of the following E mail IDs (No Hard Copy or CD should be sent) :-
The best three papers will be presented in each session. Other accepted papers will be included in the seminar proceedings and efforts will be made to include them in a special issue of the Journal of ET Division, WBSC,IE(I) after due modification/augmentation as suggested by learned reviewers.
The emerging trends that will drive the most change in telecommunications in future are :
- Integration: The content contest
Being connected continues to become cheaper and cheaper, Connectivity is capturing an ever-smaller proportion of the information value chain, while content, service, and product deliverers capture ever-more.
- IoT: The traffic explosion
The next major trend that will impact telecommunications is the explosion of connected devices. This internet of things, or Thingification, will add billions if not trillions of new connected data sources globally by 2020.
The upswing of all of these devices will be an astronomical growth in data volumes; we will quickly push through exabyte volumes and enter the world of zettabytes per year.
- Mobility: The great wireless migration
Global growth of mobile connectivity is far outpacing hardline connectivity. This makes sense, as most growth is occurring in the developing world and amongst poorer populations.
- Saturation: The search for growth
Companies will enter retirement communities and assisted living facilities which are fully digitized in order to be as efficient as possible.
- Security: The network is the threat
As custodians of the networks, carriers play a pivotal role in fighting the new threats that are emerging. Customers will begin to expect, then demand, more proactive protection from the entire internet value chain, and carriers will be expected to support these expectations with a range of technical and operational innovations. The desire for greater security may be a boon for carriers, if they embrace the need.
The space-, balloon-, or drone-based systems will provide high-quality broadband access to anywhere and everywhere in the world, they’ll do it affordably.
Continued momentum around core telecommunications businesses—as well as innovation around non-traditional business models such as Internet of Things applications, mPayments, and evolving communications technologies—will present both new challenges and growth opportunities for telecommunications companies. The number of “connected things” continues to grow as mobile and “smart” device utilization and connectivity continues to expand—which will ultimately shape and define the IoT space. As the number of embedded devices that require mobile connectivity grows, telecommunications companies will be looking for opportunities to increase revenue through their core businesses such as network connectivity, sale of network equipment and devices, all of which this emerging ecosystem will require, as well as through new products and services that are enabled by these core businesses.
