For that thing that sits in your pocket and you pay more attention to than your family, this year will be the year of the unfolding smart phone, which we think is totally cool and may lead to a more fundamental change than just driving yet more video demand, that could be called “post smart phone”. Vehicle to network and industrial control are the darlings of 2019 to watch out for. We expect that coming into 2019 security and privacy will continue to become more and more important as more people become more aware, and perhaps paranoid, about how their data is being used.

"The development and deployment of 5G is going to enable business impact at a level few technologies ever have, providing wireless at the speed and latency needed for complex solutions like driverless vehicles," Michael Haines, community chair and director of partner incentive strategy and program design for Microsoft, said in the release. Anyone notice that ATT became a media company last year? SEE: What is blockchain? In 2019, for instance, the hype around software-defined networking could subside, while intent-based networking flows into the mainstream. Enjoy, We probably weren’t correct that 2018 was the year of 6G as 5G continued to prove to be a good place for the academics to play. But in the meantime the activity in ML will continue to rise in comms, and the CTN EB will certainly milk it for a few articles. Check out these predictions and others in this list of network technology trends. Best of all, as investment and competition increase in the AI realm, costs are reduced.". Anyway we will call 2019 the year of IoT and see what happens. Anyway, we will call 2019 the year of IT convergence and see what happens. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified at Capitol Hill regarding the usage of personal data by Facebook. Every year Ericsson published a very nice mobility report and this year they are predicting that LTE subscribers will continue to grow through 2021 and that 5G will be frankly a bit of a blip until then. Other devices do connect to wireless networks, but their volume has barely registered to date. Drones enable robotic automation with fewer geographical restrictions, the report noted. Solution providers that develop 5G-based solutions for specific industry applications will have profitable, early-mover advantages.". 2019 is the year of robot-on-robot violence. To mix our metaphors we will stay away from the 3rd rail of passing any opinion on this complex and political topic. We once again typed “massive MIMO implementation” into IEEE Xplore and found our 287 papers since 2015 had increased by 22% to 351 papers but this is half the rate of last year. Wiser heads than us tell us that the rise of Netflix is causing a lot of people in the content delivery business to rethink their future.

"IoT may mean many things to many people, but it can clearly mean incremental or new business to a channel partner if they start adding relevant IoT solutions with their existing and new customers. Visible light communication: Next-gen business communication technology. From where to hold an international conference, if there is risk that some of the attendees might not be able to get a visa, to how we secure public confidence in our complex supply chain. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the emerging technology offering the greatest opportunities to create new business and revenues, according to CompTIA's second annual Top 10 Emerging Technologies report, released Monday. Boring but true. In the interest of pointing out the elephant in the room we have to say something about the global supply chain. After years of anticipation, 5G is finally here and expected to roll out on a wider scale in 2019. We made a first mention of this last year, and it is not something bound to happen overnight, so here we go again. Federated Learning, you heard it here first. More importantly, they don't have to start over from scratch.". And we communications engineers are in the content delivery business aren’t we? So we will call 2019 the year of security focused networking. So don’t throw that book on LTE away quite just yet. Theoretically, 5G can be 20 times faster than 4G! How emerging technology will shape New York City's future, Comment and share: Top 10 emerging technologies of 2019. As always we would like to add the caveat that we are just engineers and these are not stock tips. We say this with the caveat that video will continue to drive mobile data volume and will increase its share in all probability in 2019. But we note that there is at least one 6G academic workshop early this year and will reset our prediction. She was previously a senior editor at CNET's sister site TechRepublic.
