  • Is digital inclusion a good thing? How can we make sure it is?

    Publication Year: 2009, Page(s): 1
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (96 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Activities directed at ldquoincludingrdquo more people in the use of digital technology are predicated on the assumption that such inclusion is invariably a good thing. It appears so, when judged solely by immediate practical convenience. However, if we also judge in terms of human rights, whether digital inclusion is good or bad depends on what kind of digital world we are to be included in. If w... View full abstract»

  • Technology for losers: Re-equipping the excluded

    Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):1 - 6
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (108 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The agenda of technology for losers is closely related to a politically more correct concept of using technology to empower disadvantaged regions or individuals. Technology for losers emphasizes the fact that losers are those that had something valuable which they have subsequently, for whatever reason, lost. Although commonly used as a highly patronizing and even offensive term, the term loser, l... View full abstract»

    With the fast development of wireless sensor networks and context-aware systems, ubiquitous sensor networks (USN) is expected to play a very important role in near future. Businesses with USN and technologies for USN, however, are still far from mature. We address issues concerning technology development, environment creation, and service model for the businesses using USN. We propose a USN busine... View full abstract»

    The promise of digital inclusion may be deterred by different sorts of discrimination brought about by Next-Generation Network (NGN) operators. As the growth of fixed and mobile networks relies on private investment and sufficient regulatory and economic incentives, competition in different telecommunications markets will increasingly depend on providers' ability to differentiate their product and...

    Traditionally digital marginalization and exclusion were understood to be a factor of connectivity to the Internet, affordability of the technology, and the capability of the communities to utilize the technology. ICT for development (ICT4D) interventions have been undertaken that address these specific factors of marginalization, however, it remains that communities are still excluded from the gl...

    The ID/locator split concept has recently been introduced into the ITU-T Study Group 13's standardization activities for future networks. To contribute to ITU-T's this effort, we first propose a naming system, called host name and identifier system (HNIS). We show how host names and host identifiers (IDs) are generated and mapped to each other. We then present a new network architecture based on t... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (147 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This work gives an overview of optical transport networks evolution. Namely it describes the tendency of shifting from all-optical to digital transport networks concept. Within this context we consider two main technologies IPoDWDM and optical digital network as new solutions that replace the classical all-optical transport network model. Possible integration of different approaches is proposed. View full abstract»
