In my childhood years, Wi-Fi was not a major technology. But when I went back to visit my parents recently, I realized I was stuck in a dead zone.
We’re entering an era of exponential innovation, an era of 5G and gigabit speeds. But who would ever need gigabit speeds, and why are they important?

A great educational unbundling is under way, in which lectures, lessons, content and interactions are being broken down to their essentials and delivered increasingly over mobile networks. But what are these essentials, and which of them can be best assisted by mobile technologies?
We will see cooperative systems with vehicle-to-vehicle communication to prevent accidents by sensing each other. There will be systems for adjusting traffic flows and prices in real-time, depending on the situation and demand. We will see smart cooperation between all means of transportation where commuters can plan, travel and pay seamlessly across public and private transportation services.
Connectivity is being embedded throughout the transport infrastructure in vehicles, roads, parking spaces, traffic controlling system and the whole logistical chain changing the role of nearly every player in the industry. Connectivity is the starting point, and the next thing that will come is cooperation between all these assets, between vehicles, transport infrastructure, users, service providers and operators.
I leave knowing that the city I’ve seen will be very different from the city that it will be a few years from now. Like Ayu’s kids, Bangladesh seems destined for success, its citizens poised to enjoy all the benefits that connectivity and technology will bring to their country in the Networked Society.

New forms of information and service exchange – between people and vehicles, between systems of private and public transport, and among manufacturing, logistics and on-demand delivery networks – are emerging as “soft” infrastructure for tomorrow’s mobility and transport systems, marking the beginning of a new industrial landscape fueled by digital and physical interaction.
In the Networked Society it is essential to understand the paradigm shift that everything in the digital economy is a data object and can be given attribution and integrity through signing at scale.
