Living life in the Networked Society: Connected Paper

Connected Paper makes it easy for the individual to access information about anything with print on it by touching it. By touching the Connected Paper, the user is identified and will have access to specific information via their digital device.

In the video, Jan Hederen of Ericsson, demonstrates how through touching a carton of soup that is made from the Connected Paper he can see (on his digital device) the ingredients of the soup, the calorie count, how far the soup was transported and how far it was transported.

At 2014 International CES, Ericsson is demonstrating the experience of "Living Life in the Networked Society." Visitors to the Ericsson booth can see how different aspects of an everyday connected life are seamlessly stitched together, allowing each of us to share experiences with family, friends and colleagues – no matter where we are and how we are connected. Connected Paper is one example of this.

Living Life in the Networked Society

At CES this year, Ericsson will introduce the next stage in their vision of the future, The Networked Society. We call this "Living Life in the Networked Society". The stand will demonstrate how our life experiences are enhanced through connections. The stand will showcase five experience zones for visitors to journey through.

Experience Zones

Mobile Life

In this experience zone, we will demonstrate several key Ericsson solutions that are driving increased mobility for consumers. Here we will explore the connected vehicle, telematics and a personalized package delivery based on location and authentication. The street area will show case small cell solutions for an urban environment, LTE Broadcast of general content, VoLTE based communications, and interactive billboard advertising.

Work Life

The working life area will center around an office like stage. Just as mobility changed the idea that a phone number was a place, this zone will show how users experience their new work place as the office, home, café or even a park bench. Productivity is no longer a desk in an office, but is now any connected place. The solutions in this zone will include WebRTC collaboration, cloudification tools, VoLTE based communication capabilities, M2M management systems and inbuildingCPE and managed network solutions.

Game Life

This zone will replicate a basketball arena – providing a "real-life" feel to the experience. The solutions in this zone will include VoLTE based communications capabilities, cloud based services for arena interest (food, tickets upgrades, merchandise), WiFi-LTE handover solutions, advertising solutions and key infrastructure devices for high capacity coverage.

Home Life

This area will showcase the next generation TV experience, a virtual home gateway, VoLTE collaboration tools, cloudification of gaming, media management and wellness solutions.

Imagine Life

The Imagine Life area will focus on visionary solutions that will soon impact how we use communication platforms and how we will interact with them. This area will be solutions that focus on changing the fabric of the Networked Society.
