    7. 7. Web 1.0 and Mobile 1.0 focused on getting connected
    8. 8. Mobile 2.0 focuses on connecting seamlessly across networks >10km Broadcast DVB, DAB Mobile 802.11 hotspots WiMAX 0.1-10km 10-100m Wi-Fi Mobile Zigbee 1-10m Bluetooth UWB, RFID <1m Wires USB, Firewire, Powerline telephone NFC IR
    9. 9. Technologies will vary by location but become transparent to the use Building Seamless Connectivity across devices and networks Hotel ADSL / Ethernet Wi-Fi ISDN/PSTN RFID, Sensors At home ADSL/Ethernet PSTN Wi_Fi, Zigbee 3G/GPRS/EDGE/HSDPA On the road 3G/GPRS/EDGE/HSDPA WiMAX RFID Sensors Office LAN/Ethernet Wi-Fi 3G/GPRS EDGE/HSDPA WiMAX Homeworkers LAN/Ethernet 3G/GPRS (4G) EDGE/HSDPA PSTN/ISDN Public places Wi-Fi 3G/GPRS/EDGE/HSDPA PSTN/ISDN At the venue Wi-Fi, 3G+ WiMAX
    10. 10. But connecting seamlessly moves beyond integrating access Category Get Connected Connect Seamlessly # of Networks Multiple disparate networks Interconnected wired and wireless networks Types of devices Few (Laptops and cell phones ) Many (Gaming consoles, ereaders, netbooks) # of devices per individual 1-3 3+ Communications features Voice and location on cell phones Multi-device comm.-enablement (voice, video, presence and location) Market focus Connectivity Application and services
