  • 1. Future Internet Research and IPv6 Till C. Lech, Senior Advisor VERDIKT
  • 2. What will the Future Internet look like…? ??
  • 3. The Future Internet will have…  A considerably higher transmission capability  A computational capacity and performance that clearly will exceed what we have today  Wireless access everywhere  A great number of different digital objects and electronic devices connected  Integrated security mechanisms at all levels and adaptive tools and services
  • 4. The Driving FI Trends in VERDIKT
  • 5. Background for topics  Social Networks, Internet of Things and Mobile Internet are identified as three of the most significant forces behind the Future Internet.  All topics have several imminent challenges within a number of special fields where Norway has, or should have, substantial competence.  The topics are important for the development of a competitive industry and will have considerable social impact.  At the same time the topics represent some of the most central challenges within ICT as we are facing a society where everything and everybody are increasingly dependent of ICT
  • 6. VERDIKT –National strategic ICT-research programmeAnnual budget (2010): 170 mill NOK (21 mill €) - Competence – educate researchers, build research competence -  Knowledge – research results relevant for society and industry - Innovation – and value creation driven by ICT-research - Status:   Total project volume: 1,5 mrd. NOK (186 mill €) VERDIKT funding: 780 mill. NOK (96 mill €)   100 research projects / 145 PhD-students / 45 post doc. “Core Competence and Value Creation with ICT in the international forefront”
  • 7. VERDIKT invests in Future Internet  NOK 200m (25m EUR) – projects started May 2010   Social networks – healthcare and welfare, democracy and public services, game industry   Internet of things – energy efficient radio communication, near field communication systems/RFID, sensor networks   Mobile internet – mobile applications, seamless systems, cloud computing  NOK 150m (20m EUR) in 2011 Call   Innovation Projects (ca 70m)   Researcher Projects (ca 80m)
  • 8. Building on Norway’sICT Strengths and Advantages Industrial & technological presence in key ICT fields   Telecommunications and mobile services   Advanced instruments / micro systems   Software engineering for services and embedded systems Capacity to draw on multiple disciplines   Ability to transform technological progress into innovations   The intersection between Internet of Things and Mobile Internet has resulted in a focus on “Smart Cities”
  • 9. Stepping up the game: European investmentin Future Internet Research  EU spending on FI research in FP7 ICT since 2007:   Networks of the future: 540m€   Software, Services, Cloud Computing: 300m€   Internet of Things: 100m€   Total: ca 7,3bn NOK  …and even more on Security, applications, hardware etc…
  • 10. Tying it all together: The Future InternetPublic Private Partnership  Launched in 2010  300m€ over 4 years for research, roll-out and deployment of FI- technology  Utilisation of EC-funded R&I and national initiatives  Guided by the input of Europe s leading industrial stakeholders
  • 11. So, what about IPv6, anyway?  Unique adressability of «things» in IoT, and devices in Mobile Internet requires a bigger address space  Emerging technologies like e.g. 6LoWPAN in sensor networks or smart grids are IPv6!  Social Networks as sand box for deployment and spreading of IPv6 (e.g. in the «IPv6 over social networks» facebook app)  Difficult to build tomorrow s internet while struggling with yesterday s infrastructure technology.
  • 12. Conclusions  The Future Internet is a top priority in Norwegian and European ICT Research Funding  Europe and Norway are dependent on cutting edge telecom infrastructures for keeping momentum in innovation and value creation  IPv6 roll-out is one of the prerequisites for unleashing the innovation potential of Norway and Europe
