2 Outline Information revolution –3 circles of impact Network growth –4 driving forces

3 Technological Revolutions 1780s sSteam power 1840s sRailway 1890s sElectricity 1930s sCar 1980s - Information Technology (IT) IT :processing, storage & communication of info (flight reservation, ID database, telephone,...)

4 Circles of Impact Core IT IT-using Industries Economic & Social life Core IT: computer, communication technologies IT-using Industries:corporations, governments, institutions Economic & Social life: how we live, work, play & interact

5 1st Circle: Core IT Moore’s Law Computing power doubles every 18 months log scale time Computing power : 1,000 times Computing cost: -30%/yr 1995 cost = 0.01% of 1970s

6 Advances in Computer 1945Computer (US) 1947 Transister (Bell Labs) 1971Microprocessor (Intel) 1982PC (IBM) 1970s:5,000 computers worldwide 1996:140M (US: 35 comp / 100 people AU: 27 comp / 100 people) 28,000 times / 25 years

7 Advances in Communication 1876Telephone (Alexander G. Bell) 1890Telephone network 1920sFax, movie transmission (BL) 1940sMobile phone (1983 cellular, BL) 1958Laser (BL) 1969Internet 1980sDigital transmission, optical fiber 1990sWWW

8 Advances in Communication Telephone Network: 1960sUndersea cable carries 138 calls 1996Fiber optic cable carries 1.5M calls 10,000 times / 35 yreas Data Network: hosts on Internet hosts M hosts, 30M users 10,000 times / 12 years

9 Analogy: Car If car technology has been advancing as fast: US$ 5 /car[US$ 25,000 /car] 100 km / lt[8 km / lt]

10 2nd Circle: IT-using Diffusion of IT technology in industry –US investment in computers rising at 20-30%/year –1970: 7%, 1996: 40% Before early 1980s, AT&T has little presence outside US By late 1990s, Bell Labs in Netherland, China, etc Networking allows organizations to coordinate their decisions & activities globally. Fig. 5, Economist, survey 28/9/1996

11 Trade & Investment Globalization Int’l trade grew twice as fast as output Foreign direct investment 3 times 1996Foreign exchange trading US$1.3 tr/day Global cross-border transactions in bond & equity: 1970: 3% US GDP 1995:136% US GDP

12 “Little Productivity Gain” Productivity gain (output/worker, big-7 avg) :4.5% : 1.5% Two reasons: measurement error time to learn and change

13 Measurement Error Service industry exceeds agricultural & mining industries –US workers in agriculture 1820: 75% 1996: 3% Easy to measure agriculture & manufacturing outputs –Productivity gain has been quite significant Difficult to measure service “output”

14 Learning & Diffusion Time Time to learn to use technology Time to reorganize economic & societal activities Time for technology to mature & diffuse Example: Car 1877 Internal-combustion engine patented 1925Different city planning conceptualized 1960sLarge shopping malls along highway 50 yrs of learning & diffusion 40 yrs of reorganizing

15 Learning & Diffusion Time Example : Electricity 1880sElectro dynamo 1899Electricity < 5% of power in US 1919Electricity ~50% of power in US 40 yrs to mature and diffuse Before:machines around water wheels & steam engines After:assembly lines to optimize work flow

16 3rd Circle: Social Life Social & Economic Life –Globalization of culture –More intrusive government –Breakdown of monopoly of propaganda –Cultural islands 30M users on Internet in 1995 USENET: 10M news articles/month 3M Web pages in 18 months to 7/95 March 97: of 220M people >16 in US & Canada 23% (50M) use Internet 17% (37M) on Web

17 Summary IT : processing, storage & communication of information Information Revolution –Core IT industries –IT-using industries –Social & economic life Communication networks : key sector of IT

18 Outline Information revolution –3 circles of impact Network growth –4 driving forces

19 Networks Industry US Communications Industry (1994) TelephoneUS$ 200 B/yr Computer 80 Newspaper 60 Broadcasting 50 Books 15 US$ 400 B/yr Networks : 70% of communications industry

20 Communication Services Voice Telephone (wired & mobile), Pager, Radio Image Fax, WWW Data Fax, , WWW Multimedia TV, Tele-conferencing, Video-conferencing, VoD

21 Network Growth Factors promoting network growth Digitization Economy of scale Network externalities Service integration

22 Analog Transmission S -> EE -> S Telephone Transmitted signal Received signal t t

23 Digital Transmission Digitization (Analog -> Digital) Digital transmission Reconstruction (Digital -> Analog) t A/DD/A t

24 Digitization Nyquist’s Samplilng Theorem Sampling rate  2 x max frequency e.g. Sinusoidal signal of freq w ==> sampling rate = 2w samples/sec Voice max freq = 4 kHz ==> sampling rate = 8 samples/sec

25 Digitization Quantization Error SNR due to quantization ~ 6N dB (SNR = N, N = bits/sample) e.g.Telephone voice48 dB Low quality cassette55 High quality cassette68 CD96

26 Digital Data Voice Max freq = sample/sec Req SNR = 48 dB==>N = 48/6 = 8 bits/sample Uncompressed digital voice: 8k x 8 = 64 kbps CD Max freq = 20 40,000 samples/sec Req SNR = 96 dB==>N = 96/6 = 16 bits/sample Uncompressed stereo CD: 40k x 16 x 2 = 1.3 Mbps 70-min CD stores 1.3M x 70 x 60 / 8 = MB NTSC TV Max freq = M sample/sec Req SNR = 48 dB==>N = 48/6 = 8 bits/sample Uncompressed NTSC TV: 9M x 8 = 72 Mbps

27 Advantages of Digitization Low transmission error (esp long distance) Compression, error correction, signal processing Uncompressed Compressed Voice 64 kbps16 kbps (GSM IS54), 8 kbps NTSC TV 72 Mbps 1.5 Mbps Same fidelity over time Ease of storage, manipulation, and distribution t t

28 “Large is Good” Economy of scale –Cost increases more slowly than computing or communication capacity ==> multiplexing decreases per-user cost –Fixed costs, e.g. network administration, operation, and maintenance Network externalities e.g. Telephone network, Internet (137 countries reachable by ), inter-networking,

29 Critical Size Below critical size: cost > benefit Above critical size: cost < benefit Positive feedback fuels growth Subsidy needed before critical size is reached e.g. Internet, French Minitel Network, AT&T’s Picturephone Benefit Unit cost Number of users Critical size

30 Economy of Scope Service integration –Cheaper to have one integrated-services network than multiple single-service networks Internet –telephone, data, broadcast TV & radio and CATV, news, magazines, books, digital library –tele-commuting, tele-banking, tele-education Restructuring of industry –Alliances of communications & media giants e.g. US West - Time Warner, Bell Atlantic - Telecommunications, South West Bell - Cox
