The Future of Connectivity 

We’re living in a hyper-connected world with rapidly shifting technological needs. Connectivity is promising to change the way we live, work and play, and foisting new demands on suppliers and providers of related devices and services. As the pace of change accelerates, organisations need to act now – in a future that is not yet defined. How will you find your opportunity, beyond the hype?

Our connected world

There’s a dramatic acceleration under way. Network-connected devices are multiplying, bringing important implications for the ecosystem of wired and wireless technologies and services that underpin tomorrow’s digital economy.

This future will rest on collaboration across industry and expertise to create favourable technology deployment conditions, develop valuable uses for technologies and spur new commercial opportunities. As the future of connectivity takes shape, organisations need to ask the right questions:

  • What are the latest connectivity technologies and how can we apply them to enterprise and government organisations?
  • What are the likely productivity gains from the application of new connectivity technologies and how can enterprises accelerate their business strategies?
  • In the ‘Age of With’, how might IT, data and the network come together improve connectivity and business objectives? 
  • What is the role of the telco operator in the future of connectivity?
  • How might policy and regulation evolve to ensure efficient and effective deployment?
