Platforms, Present and Future XIII

Platforms as enabler of business (and services) II I just mentioned in the previous post the relevance given by industry to platforms and ecosystems. Actually, the two are connected or, better, have to be connected to match industry interest. A platform provides its services through APIs -Application Programming Interface. For …

The evolution of human to whatever Interfaces III

Clearly there is much more than voice based interaction.  So let’s explore other technologies and their implication first by looking at voice (and typing that we have already considered) alternative technologies and then taking the plunge into multimodal interactions (that is our natural way of interacting as human being!). Let’s …

6G will follow 5G, that much we know – II

Of course, 5G is much more than the radio part and spectrum efficiency/use. It has a lot to do with network and service architecture. It is through a novel architecture that much lower latency can be achieved. It is the novel architecture that support the session management at the edges, …
