The network has a major role to play in improving future information communications and technology systems (ICT) and then society. Let’s take for example Cloud Computing, which is a major trend today in the ICT world. Cloud computing is based on the existence of broadband networks. Today more and more technology providers are offering Cloud services due largely to the demand for services/resources on demand brought about by widespread broadband access.
A variety of web services have been created and people are enjoying them via the network. As this trend accelerates, telecommunication networks are becoming increasingly important as social infrastructures. This engenders the need for capacity growth with cost reductions, greater flexibility, network virtualization and visualization, more use of wireless and provision of new experiences via the network.
