  10. 10. Innovation: WiMAX ! Provides wireless data over long distances ! Built from a clean sheet of paper: data is the starting point, not a voice network trying to morph to fill data needs ! Considered the key to bridging the digital divide ! Greater capabilities, greater opportunities 10
  11. 11. Innovation: Telematics Telematics: computing + communications Turning a Ford Five Hundred sedan into a wireless communications center ! Motivation: more traffic, more safely, over static infrastructure ! Requirements: massive scalability, reliability, security, privacy ! Result: convergence of safety, convenience, information, entertainment (“Vehicle Infrastructure Integration”) ! Applications: micro traffic reports/routing; SMS fast food ordering; local merchant instant discounting (e.g., oil change) 11
