It’s time to converge with 4G: Samsung boss

Intergration of social networking and cloud computing adds to what people want from their products

Samsung Electronics (Korea) executive, Hung Song, has warned the KANZ Broadband Summit that 2G or 3G don't offer enough options for handling current and future convergence and 4G technology must be adopted for it's broadband capabilities such as faster speeds.

The company's vice-president of telecommunication systems division said there was an explosion of mobile data traffic due to everyone constantly accessing information anytime, anywhere from their devices.

“We [have] got to work on how we manage different technologies in different timeframes and different solutions. There is too much data coming back and forth; how do we manage [it]?” he said.

4G was the answer to keeping up with that convergence.

With the increasing number of people purchasing smartphones and tablets every day, Song said though competitiveness in this new era of globalisation is good, it might not be sufficient in competing with growing technologies.

Product users now want to hear more than just a voice. They were integrating technologies such as cloud computing and social networking into their lifestyles, he said.

Having a smartphone was only the first of the great devices people would come to own. This growth led to the convergence of data, as consumers multitasked more with such gadgets.

“In future, not only will we have smart devices, but also connectivity throughout all the gadgets – TVs, PCs, laptops, smart devices, even refrigerators will have a constant seamless connectivity,” he said.

So what can be done better with ICT capabilities?

Song proposed new paradigms of ICT collaboration, especially with A/NZ working towards conserving nature, such as working with alternative energies, and green technologies.

“4G will provide comfort, convenience and safety in life, we now have to envision what comes next,” he said.
