Upcoming Trends in Tech

Like any tech lover, sometimes I like to take some time to look ahead and wonder what’s in store on the technology front. And as I ponder what the future has in store for businesses across Canada, the following key tech trends come to mind:

E-Wallets are coming. Canadian banks launched their first pilot programs to support smartphone-based payments in 2012, and these types of programs should see rapid expansion as the technology matures and more Canadians purchase ecommerce-capable devices (usually equipped with NFC chips). Businesses of all types will need to get up to speed as more customers increasingly expect mobile payment options.

Touch, touch, touch. First it was smart phones, then tablets. Now, laptop and desktop computers are increasingly shipping with touch-based screens. Over the next year, a rising tide of touch-enabled hardware will begin to change how work gets done in and out of the office.

Higher cloud adoption rates. The cloud will continue to make inroads, and by year’s end we can expect it to touch even the most resistant businesses. The reasons are easy to see, and few revolutions promise as much efficiency and agility as the cloud.

The need for desktop and mobile device security. Hackers and scammers continue to up their game. Traditional spam and phishing techniques are being replaced by more sophisticated social engineering attacks that make it even easier for them to get at our confidential information. Identity theft continues to be a major concern for businesses and consumers. This will hopefully prompt businesses in all sectors to increase their focus on online security in 2013.

But there is a silver lining: security vendors are also getting better at fighting threats, and the array of protective products and services has never been as extensive. Expect them to continue to maintain the upper hand as the year wears on.

Everything connecting to the Internet. Not so long ago, the only thing that went online was a computer or mobile device. These days, almost anything can be Internet-enabled, and machine-to-machine (M2M) communication – technology that allows machines to talk back and forth with each other – will be coming out in a big way. This will open up a whole new marketplace full of opportunities for Canadian businesses.

Computerization. The so-called bring your own device (BYOD) revolution is changing the face of corporate technology. Increasingly, employees are bringing their own laptops, tablets and smartphones to work, and insisting on being hooked up. The BYOD wave will intensify in 2013, and companies that have held off on letting consumer-based tech into the corporate landscape will have fewer reasons to say no.

The Bottom Line
Only time will tell precisely how these trends will play out, and how they’ll impact your particular organization, but one thing is certain – the opportunities for organizations that embrace this tech-forward future are almost limitless. What new or emerging technology has you most excited?

South Korea to launch 5G service so fast users can download an entire film in just ONE SECOND

Ø South Korea is now investing £900million in 5G services
Ø Trial service expected in 2017 with commercial service by December 2020
Ø Will allow users to download a 800MB movie file in one second
Ø Speeds up to 1GB per second are 1,000 times faster than 4G

          South Korea is to introduce a blazing fast 5G mobile internet service, quick enough to download a full length feature film in less than a second. While most of the world has yet to experience the improvements offered by 4G services, the technologically advanced country has announced a  £900million (1.6 trillion won) in its successor. South Korea's science ministry said it aims to implement the technology, which is about 1,000 times faster than the 4G, within six years.
Speedy: South Korea are investing £900 million into 5G wireless internet services capable of downloading an entire film in a single second.

5G will allow users to download a 800-megabyte movie file in one second, compared with 40 seconds using 4G, the science ministry said, adding that such speeds would help South Korean firms win overseas deals.

A ministry spokesman said: 'We helped fuel national growth with 2G services in the 1990s, 3G in the 2000s and 4G around 2010. Now it is time to take preemptive action to develop 5G.'

'Countries in Europe, China and the United States are making aggressive efforts to develop 5G technology and we believe there will be fierce competition in this market in a few years,' it said.

Under the roadmap, a trial 5G service will be rolled out in 2017 and a fully commercial service in December 2020. Priority will be given to developing key features for the new network, including Ultra-HD and hologram transmission as well as cutting-edge social networking services.

Related industries will be able to rack up sales of 5G-related devices and infrastructure equipment worth 331 trillion won from 2020 to 2026, the ministry estimated. The government hopes to implement the plan with investment and cooperation from operators such as SK Telecom and Korea Telecom as well as handset makers like Samsung and LG.

It also aims to expand the telecom infrastructure equipment industry, which is relatively weaker than the mighty mobile device sector. Led by Samsung - the world's top handset maker - South Korea has a leading 30-percent stake in the global mobile device market.

'But the (telecom) infrastructure equipment industry has only a 4.4 percent share in the global market, with exports very limited,' the ministry said. Chinese equipment makers including Huawei have expanded their presence in the global market from 12 percent in 2007 to 26 percent in 2012.

Huawei announced in November that it was looking at a 5G commercial rollout by 2020, with a minimum investment of $600 million to develop the technology. Seoul intends to take up to a 20 percent stake in the world's telecom infrastructure equipment market by 2020, according to the ministry.

New opportunities South Korea is renowned for being at the forefront of internet technology with broadband speeds that consistently out-pace those in Europe or the United States.

Officials said the new service would also mean people on bullet trains running faster than 500 kilometers (310 miles) an hour would even be able to access the Internet, compared with 300 kph currently.

'Bullet trains around the world keep getting faster, with some in China running as fast as 500 and 600 kilometers per hour,' said one ministry official who declined to be named.

'If we have the technology to allow fast Internet access in these trains, it can open new opportunities for us globally,' he said.

Samsung Electronics announced back in May that it had successfully tested 5G technology, managing data transmission of more than one gigabyte per second over a distance of two kilometers.

Samsung said it had found a way to harness millimeter-wave bands which have proved to be a sticking point for the mobile industry to date.

The test used 64 antenna elements, which the tech titan said overcame the issue of 'unfavourable propagation characteristics' that have prevented data travelling across long distances using the bands. However, it made clear that the technology would not be available commercially before the end of the decade.
