In the past decade, technology is undoubtedly constantly changing our way of life and work. 15 years ago, people in order to make a phone call, but also to find their own public telephone. Today, no matter where you are, always carry a smart mobile device, always keep in touch with other people.
But that’s just the beginning. In 2000, commercial customers use submarine cable transmission speed of only 2 gigabits per second. Ten years later, by 2009, commercial customers use submarine cable transmission speeds of 40 gigabits per second, but only in just a few years after the speed has reached 100 gigabits, indicating that demand continues to promote the upgrading of network technology capabilities The Personal connections are also improving, whether it is 3G, 4G or 5G which connection, the most important is the speed of the upgrade.
More than 3 billion Internet users worldwide, with billions of “objects” connected, from event trackers to smart home centers, from car networking to street lights, we rely on these devices to quickly collect data and insights and communicate with other data and insights Linked to the industry and consumers to promote the integrated platform.
The coordination between point A and point B is obviously insufficient. In fact, the market research firm Forrester said that this year the design team will find more than 19 new wireless connectivity options and protocols to support the company’s diverse Internet of things equipment.
For example, if you are going to attend a meeting on a schedule, you will use the GPS navigation on your phone to go to the meeting place. But the current parking application will not tell you that it takes about 20 minutes to reach the meeting, and you have to park your car in a distant parking lot, so the program will suggest that you should start now. While Google Maps knows the time to drive, but you can not tell us about the parking situation, which requires a different service to be used.
As the integration of technology makes synchronization possible, the need for multiple applications will continue to change. Gartner expects the number of connected devices to be used worldwide by 2017, of which nearly two-thirds are consumer goods, especially smart TVs, set-top boxes and in-vehicle devices such as entertainment systems and sensors.
With the global dependence on technology gradually expanded and deepened, the connection between the world’s platform between the higher, more dependent, to create a seamless connection of unrelated objects, and the network has just begun to play a role The
At present, we begin to see this integration sign in the personal assistant. Tools such as Alexa and Google Home start connecting platforms and devices, but only in the background. Now, Alexa is just a box with multiple controls, and not everything can naturally control everything. You can let Alexa play music or turn on the lights, but can not say “Alexa, please light the lights when you’re singing romantic music.”
Give another example: Recently I saw a dashboard with a different app at a meeting, an app would show the temperature inside the house, and the other to the sensor. When the door was open, the sensor would stop working. But the two applications can not work at the same time, thus showing the back door open, so the bedroom temperature is reduced, and the best solution is to close the door, rather than raise the temperature inside the house!
In the near future, everything will change. You no longer need 50 apps to remind you of a single item. Instead, these applications will work together and technology will be synchronized. So when you return to running, your equipment will remind you that you need water and eat a banana because your body has a low potassium content. Or when you work, your equipment reminds you that there are two weeks away from the wedding anniversary, and your wife loves to do a spa outside the two blocks, and you should buy her favorite lotion after getting off work.
Another example is the new shopping option. We are working with customers to develop an intelligent shopping platform. Based on the images selected by the consumer, the system can reduce the range of available alternative shoes to the type of shoe that can be reasonably selected based on the consumer’s input data. This is similar to a screening process, but not just a store, but to the entire store network.
The collection of technology will change our way of life, but it will not happen overnight. In fact, like the changes in the mobile space, the future may be more industrial changes, so that all this can be true. As the past two decades, the network speed continues to improve, 5G and other new developments will continue to promote the pace of technological development.
The integration and integration of platforms and devices will enable seamless connectivity between man-machine and become more streamlined, and this is unprecedented. Obviously, the future digital world will depend on billions of connected devices and their interconnection between them. Creating the world where all the networks and applications can work together will give people a ubiquitous hyperlink experience, all of which we need to work together in the industry.
