Today is Tomorrow’s Yesterday: Innovation in the Digital Single Market
Dear #ETNODigital readers,
Innovation is increasingly becoming part of the discussion surrounding digital policies.
We have prepared a wrap-up of recent events and speeches at a moment in which the EU is working full steam on policies and reforms that have the potential to boost Europe’s ability to innovate: 5G, Internet of Things, Broadband Investment, Open Platforms, Standards and much more.
The partnership will bring 5G services to customers in 2018 by combining the TeliaSonera network with Ericsson technology. Potential 5G applications could include e-health, connected cars, better network performance…
5G vision and roadmap to key standards: Telefonica welcomes the European Commission Communication on ICT Standardisation Priorities as part of its set of initiatives regarding its first industry-related package 5G is one of the priorities domains.
A first for Europe: Swisscom achieves 1 Gbps speeds on the mobile broadband network. The new capabilities meet customer requirements as the volume of data that is transferred over Swisscom’s mobile broadband network each year continues to double.
Delivering on its Strategy to create a Digital Single Market, the Commission has unveiled its plans to help European industry, SMEs, researchers and public authorities make the most of new technologies. The set of measures will support and link up national initiatives for the digitisation of industry and related services across all sectors and boost investment through strategic partnerships and networks.
As the European Commission is about to present a new set of rules for the European telecom sectors, ETNO and MLex are partnering up to discuss how best to regulate for the user of the future.
Participants and experts at the Regulatory Summit 2016 will take a closer look at the Internet of Things, how the mobile and app economy is transforming industries and empowering new services and at the way in which 5G is promising a whole new digital ecosystem, based on powerful and ubiquitous access to broadband networks.
