1 Internet Futures

2 Acknowledgement to Anders Rockstrom of Telia Sonera, whose presentation on this topic had a profound impact on me – he presented his arguments so clearly and simply it was just an irresistible message. Thanks Anders! Geoff

3 purpose: share some thoughts about the Internet and its future think about some of the major factors that will shape our future +

4 why The mainstream telecommunications industry has a rich history …of making very poor technology guesses and regularly being taken by surprise!

5 why could we do a better job?

6 One approach: 1.Observe the situation and whats happening 2.Believe what we see 3.Understand where this may lead us and what options may be presented on the way

7 Whats Happening Today: User Preferences and the Market for Services From radio to tv to ? From telephony to chat to mashups to p2p to ? passive

8 Service Profile Choices Bundled services Open collaboration framework Vertical integration role specialization Passive users Active user networks open delivery infrastructure vs Service / content distribution networks user produced vs externally produced

9 Whats Happening Today: User Preferences and the Market for Services From radio to tv to ? From telephony to chat to mashups to p2p to ? passive

10 Whats Happening Today: Declining Revenue Profile for incumbent telcos How to fill the gap of the Internets revenue leak?

11 Whats Happening Today: Demand for Bandwidth Kb Mb Gb Modem tails Mb Muxed Trunks DSL tails Gb Lamda Trunks fibre tails Bonded Tb Trunks? What mass market customers want for $25 per month !

13 Moores Law technology pace

14 end user capability technology push and network architecture

15 Over the top applications

16 Content production is a commodity application that users sustain through sharing, rather than a valuable service that is produced externally through dedicated production channels Over the top applications

17 Web enabled user generated content QoS Network VPNs IMS facebook doppler youtube wikipedia and

18 fuelling the usage growth fire bandwidth switching routing addressing usage = scaling storage delivering power heat dissipation memory speed silicon density storage efficiency But is bigger always cheaper ? and what happens when its not? Please send heaps more…. fibre routes

20 triple play

21 shift to a new business structure new operator roles being defined

22 Packet pushing is a commodity utility activity Low margins No product differentiation Low barriers to entry Deregulation and competition Traditional revenue streams are vaporizing Wired telephony Business data products Mobile telephony Local Access monopolies Investors remain nervous about telcos Cost of capital is high Shareholder returns need to stay high Consumers are fleeing legacy telcos in the face of price gouging No residual expertise left in-house Valued services are overlays to the network

23 ? Reinvention: new and different business models commodity utility network operation User-centric applications, not network-centric services Value shift up the protocol stack network high capacity packet pushing My personal view sees the following..

24 a closing thought Im probably going to be proved wrong as much as I may be right with these thoughts. There is no certain track of progress here. Each shift of the Internets use paradigm through innovation is as much a surprise to the innovator as it is to everyone else Which is probably a very good thing!
