The goal of this workshop is to explore trends in the use of and development of broadband applications and devices. The workshop will identify the technologies and packages of technology pieces that comprise the “killer app” trend-setting broadband applications driving broadband use. It will also identify these technologies’ requirements for broadband infrastructure and devices. Understanding both the trends and needs that facilitate growth in broadband applications and devices, the workshop will aid Commission efforts to identify metrics and data-gathering techniques to track and evaluate broadband infrastructure deployments, and develop key broadband policies to foster broadband application and device investment, development, and use.
The workshop will develop this background by answering crucial questions about how consumers use applications and devices, and the challenges to developing them.
The following are some of the preliminary topics that will be covered at this workshop. If you would like to discuss any other topics, please send us your suggestions.
- What are innovative ways consumers are using broadband today?
- How are the ways consumers use broadband changing?
- How are evolutions in devices facilitating what consumers can do with broadband?
- How will applications evolve in the next 5, 10, and 15 years?
- What advancements in broadband infrastructure could make possible applications currently limited by the available pipe?
- What are the challenges to developing broadband applications for fixed and mobile broadband?
- What changes in broadband devices and development platforms could realize new growth in applications?
- How may changes in applications drive changes to networks?
- What regulatory or legal barriers constrain the growth of broadband applications and devices?
- In what ways do applications and devices leverage legal, social, and technical features of cybersecurity?
