    1. 1. Nomadic Computing<br />Nan Jia Janet<br />Jeremy Shafer<br />
    2. 2. What is Nomadic Computing?<br />Nomadic Computing Technologies<br />How is Nomadic Computing used today?<br />Value to Organizations<br />Current Limitations<br />Future Growth Areas<br />Suggested project<br />Agenda<br />
    3. 3. The definition of the term “nomadic computing” has changed over time:<br />According to the WiMAX forum, nomadic = semimobile. <br />Semimobile means “At a minimum, the client mobile device is transportable to secondary fixed locations with no connection while in transit.”<br />In broader industry, nomadic = mobile<br />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 <br />What is Nomadic computing?<br />
    4. 4. More about mobile computing:<br />Enables the mobile worker to: create, access, process, store, communicate information without being constrained to a single location<br />Enables interaction with organizational personnel that were previously disconnected<br />Ideally, users are not constrained to a single device<br />Mobile computing aims to be “Ubiquitous and Pervasive”<br />What is Nomadic computing?<br />
    5. 5. Mobile computing is accomplished using a combination of: computer hardware, system and applications software, some form of communications medium<br />Hardware : Palmtop, Clamshell , Handheld Penkey , Penslate , Laptop <br />Software : MSDOS , Windows 3.1/3.11/95/98/NT , Windows for Pen Computing , Windows CE , PenDOS , PenRight , Palm OS , Psion EPOC32 , Unix<br />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<br />Nomadic computing technology<br />
    6. 6. Some popular mobile devices:<br />Apple iPhone<br />Blackberry Curve<br />HTC Touch<br />Helio Ocean<br />Nokia N95<br />Samsung Upstage<br />… this is just a <br />short list.<br />Nomadic computing technologies<br />
    7. 7. Some wireless network options:<br />Nomadic computing technologies<br />
    8. 8. For individual users, performs functions such as: email, Web browsing , word processing , scheduling , contact management , to-do lists , messaging , presentation<br />-Mobile devices: laptop computers, handheld devices (PDA, mobile phone, pager, video camera, digital camera)<br />-Wearable devices (smart watches and digital glasses)<br />How is nomadic computing used?<br />

    20. 20. Future Growth Areas<br />
    21. 21. A suggested exploratory/experimental project<br />“Good Citizen Software”<br />Addresses a basic human function ... to warn<br />
    22. 22. GCS Phase I<br />Objective: Build a simple notification agent that can run on multiple nomadic platforms. <br />Build public good will.<br />Partner with government and/or news organizations. <br />Maximize the install base.<br />Use only as needed.<br />Establish test schedule.<br />Profit Model: None / Charitable service <br />
    23. 23. GCS Phase II<br />Description: Leverage GPS technology to allow users to tag physical space<br />Objective: Build a popular nomadic social network. Do not over-notify users. This service works because:<br />It is mobile<br />It is free<br />It is platform independent<br />Profit Model: None / Entertainment service<br />
    24. 24. GCS Phase III<br />Description: Market the data with business value.<br />Objective: Establish a revenue stream.<br />Profit Model: Market Intelligence<br />
    25. 25. GCS Phase IV<br />Description: Leverage a ubiquitous and pervasive install base.<br />Objective: To be determined<br />Profit Model: To be determined<br />
