Future technologies for an intelligent society

A number of technologies shape tomorrow’s intelligent network platform. By evolving these technologies we evolve the network platform, a platform that will fundamentally change the way our societies innovate, collaborate, produce, govern and live sustainably. This will not only change the telecom industry, it will create new opportunities for other industries and different kinds of business models. Traditional business processes will be re-engineered based on intuitive human-machine interactivity, and realized through real-time, autonomous and inherently secure platforms.
