Techno-Economics: Next generation infrastructures, applications and content
In this recently launched research area, both the technical and economic perspectives on the next generation of telecommunications infrastructures (FTTx, Docsis 3.0, 4G, etc), contents and applications (on-line media, mobile apps, etc) are examined with a look at their sustainability and their usage in the home and personal environments. Emerging paradigms such as context-awareness, immersive media and Internet of things are specifically considered.
The current flagship project in the area is a study on the deployment of Next Generation Networks (NGN) carried out in cooperation with leading Spanish companies (Telefónica, Vodafone, Orange, ONO) and institutions (Spanish National Regulatory Agency). The project tries to shed some light on the contributions of broadband infrastructures to a sustainable economic growth, the current situation of the deployment of next generation of networks and the limits of the market action –coverage of the territory, penetration, etc. as a function of time and possible technologies (wireless in particular), and finally, the public perspective on how to promote this deployment.
