genesis of next generation communications
Communications is entering a new era, a digital
revolution driven by IP.
Two environments are central to this transition: computing and networking.
Computing layers intelligence onto a vast network of connectivity-available
anytime, anywhere. The genesis of the next generation of communications
is the marrying of these two environments. We call this "net-puting."
Net-puting is synonymous with eBusiness on Demand. Net-puting architecture
is the key many companies have been searching for in overcoming the
'siloed' nature of computers and organizations…and improving the performance
of the entire enterprise.
At Bell Canada, we are already reaping the benefits of net-puting.
We have completed the merger of IP-based wireline and wireless network
at our core. Now, by taking a net-puting view of the world, we are
getting the horsepower of the computer into network.
The enormous potential for net-puting is not restricted to organizations
like ours. Companies with foresight can vastly reduce internal costs
by opening up the power of the network. Net-puting lowers the costs
of computing by optimizing unused capacity, and providing higher performance,
less wait time and greater reliability.
This is pioneering work. Net-puting is a vision that is reshaping
our own internal infrastructures and that will enable a new array
of communication services and capabilities for other farseeing enterprises.
In a net-puting environment, where computing is ever more pervasive
and resilient, the universal glue is network.
