Committed to connecting the world


Next Generation Networks

​​​​​​​The ICT sector is chara​cterized by rapid technological change, and by convergence of technological platforms for telecommunications, information delivery, broadcasting and computing which are key enablers for the digital economy. The deployment of common broadband, including through fixed and mobile technology and network infrastructures for multiple telecommunication services and applications, and the evolution to all IP-based wireless and wired future networks (NGNs and their evolutions), open up opportunities but also imply significant challenges for developing countries. When referring to communications we include people-to-people, people-to-things and things-to-things communications as well as new or emerging technologies. Also notable is the worldwide transition from analogue to digital broadcasting, enabling more efficient use of spectrum and higher quality audio and video delivery.​
