    Agenda
  • The definition of the term “nomadic computing” has changed over time:
    According to the WiMAX forum, nomadic = semimobile.
    Semimobile means “At a minimum, the client mobile device is transportable to secondary fixed locations with no connection while in transit.”
    In broader industry, nomadic = mobile
    Mobile computing takes place when portable computing devices interact in some fashion with a central information system. Users access the Internet and data on their home or work computers while away from the normal, fixed workplace
    What is Nomadic computing?
  • More about mobile computing:
    Enables the mobile worker to: create, access, process, store, communicate information without being constrained to a single location
    Enables interaction with organizational personnel that were previously disconnected
    Ideally, users are not constrained to a single device
    Mobile computing aims to be “Ubiquitous and Pervasive”
    What is Nomadic computing?
  • Mobile computing is accomplished using a combination of: computer hardware, system and applications software, some form of communications medium
    Hardware : Palmtop, Clamshell , Handheld Penkey , Penslate , Laptop
    Software : MSDOS , Windows 3.1/3.11/95/98/NT , Windows for Pen Computing , Windows CE , PenDOS , PenRight , Palm OS , Psion EPOC32 , Unix
    Communication technologies : Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) , Satellite , Cellular Digital Packet Data (CDPD) , Personal Communications Systems (PCS) , Global System for Mobile communications (GSM) , RAM and ARDIS data networks , Specialized Mobile Radio (SMR) service , one and two-way paging , plain old telephone system (POTS) , Internet , infra-red,docking (serial, parallel, LAN),disk swapping
    Nomadic computing technology
  • Some popular mobile devices:
    Apple iPhone
    Blackberry Curve
    HTC Touch
    Helio Ocean
    Nokia N95
    Samsung Upstage
    … this is just a
    short list.
    Nomadic computing technologies
  • Some wireless network options:
    Nomadic computing technologies
  • For individual users, performs functions such as: email, Web browsing , word processing , scheduling , contact management , to-do lists , messaging , presentation
    -Mobile devices: laptop computers, handheld devices (PDA, mobile phone, pager, video camera, digital camera)
    -Wearable devices (smart watches and digital glasses)
    How is nomadic computing used?
  • For Estate Agents
    Emergency Services
    In courts
    In companies
    Stock Information Collation/Control
    Credit Card Verification
    Taxi/Truck Dispatch
    Electronic Mail/Paging
    How is nomadic computing used?

    Value for organizations
  • Disconnection
    Low bandwidth
    High bandwidth variability
    Low power and resources
    Security and Privacy risks
    Wide variety of devices with different capabilities
    Device attributes
    Fit more functionality into single, smaller device
    Limitations
  • Future Growth Areas
  • A suggested exploratory/experimental project
    “Good Citizen Software”
    Addresses a basic human function ... to warn
  • GCS Phase I
    Objective: Build a simple notification agent that can run on multiple nomadic platforms.
    Build public good will.
    Partner with government and/or news organizations.
    Maximize the install base.
    Use only as needed.
    Establish test schedule.
    Profit Model: None / Charitable service
  • GCS Phase II
    Description: Leverage GPS technology to allow users to tag physical space
    Objective: Build a popular nomadic social network. Do not over-notify users. This service works because:
    It is mobile
    It is free
    It is platform independent
    Profit Model: None / Entertainment service
  • GCS Phase III
    Description: Market the data with business value.
    Objective: Establish a revenue stream.
    Profit Model: Market Intelligence
  • GCS Phase IV
    Description: Leverage a ubiquitous and pervasive install base.
    Objective: To be determined
    Profit Model: To be determined
